With the release of Agent 47’s next outing being just around the corner, it seems that IO Interactive has teamed up with Hollywood star Sean Bean to create an amusing live-action trailer for Hitman 2.

The trailer opens with the 59-year-old actor sitting in a luxurious leather chair as a waiter serves him a drink. He begins to tell the audience about the most efficient weaponry available to a true assassin. Opening a case containing a pair of silenced pistols and viewing his reflection in a meat cleaver, Bean dismisses these in favour of a rubber duck. He then states that improvisation is the deadliest weapon of all.

The tailer then cuts to a number of in-game shots depicting Agent 47 eliminating a number of his marks in increasingly unorthodox ways using everything from rubber duck bombs to tire-irons. There are glimpses of the creativity involved in the game as we see people falling victim to electrocution, being drowned in toilets, and getting crushed under falling boats.

In true Sean Bean fashion it’s heavily implied that his character doesn’t survive as we see the servant’s hand tipping a drop of poison into his drink. The final shot shows Agent 47’s iconic barcode tattoo as he leaves the scene wearing a butler’s outfit.

Hitman 2 will be jam-packed full of gadgetry and unlikely weapons when it lands on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 13. The game can currently be pre-ordered on Amazon.
