Warner Brothers and developer, IO Interactive have announced the addition of competitive multiplayer for HITMAN 2 in the form of Ghost Mode, a unique and brand-new take on 1-versus-1 online competition, putting players kill skills to the test against mates, randoms or random mates.
It is no secret that
John Wick Agent 47 is the world’s deadliest assassin, and the only person who can match him in skill, stealth and execution is… himself. Therefore, Ghost Mode allows two players to compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets in a match. At the start of each round, both players begin side-by-side and must race to take out the same targets faster and cleaner than their opponent, while utilizing weapons, items, outfits and ghost crate supply drops along the way to help accomplish the overall mission and bask in bloody efficient glory.
The unique twist with Ghost Mode is that players will simultaneously hunt targets while in the same location and can see a “ghost” version of their rival to track progress against their own, but they exist in separate realities unaffected by the actions of their adversary. In Ghost Mode, the player who can outsmart, outplay and out kill their opponent by eliminating five targets first, will declare victory.
Ghost Mode will be available for the Miami location when HITMAN 2 launches on November 13. the mode will subsequently become available for additional locations, as well as other World of Assassination locations, post-launch.
HITMAN 2 will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC beginning November 13, 2018.
