Hitman 2 is getting a new Ghost Mode. Those who want to play it online will get the chance to do so with a competitive 1 vs. 1 multiplayer mode that is new to the series.
Warner Bros. Interactive is publishing this sequel to Hitman and it will be out in November. The Ghost Mode multiplayer mode sounds interesting and should offer fun gameplay for those looking to hunt their own competitors online.
The official description of the Ghost Mode sent in the press release can be seen below.
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.
The unique twist with Ghost Mode in HITMAN 2 is that players will simultaneously hunt targets while in the same location and can see a “ghost” version of their rival gamer 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 outkill their opponent by eliminating five targets first, will declare victory.
Here is a trailer that gives an overview of this new Ghost Mode.
Hitman 2 will be out on November 13 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
