Beat an­other player to the tar­gets in Ghost mode

PlayStation Official Magazine (UK) - - CONTENT -

There’s only one per­son out there with the skills to match Agent 47, the world’s ul­ti­mate as­sas­sin: him­self. Hit­man 2’s Ghost mode is a brand-new 1v1 com­pet­i­tive mode that chal­lenges you to kill more tar­gets than the other player, in a ‘first to five’ sit­u­a­tion. The marks are the same, but you’ll also need to make your kills smarter and cleaner in or­der to get the leg up.

As you com­pete, you’ll be able to see the par­al­lel Agent 47 in­ter­act­ing with the world as a ghost, so you’re es­sen­tially op­er­at­ing in dif­fer­ent re­al­i­ties. Mean­ing if you mess up, the only one you’re in­con­ve­nienc­ing is your­self. You both start in the same lo­ca­tion, and you will need to use all the tricks in the book, in­clud­ing ICA drops, weapons, dis­guises, and other items, to out­wit your ri­val.

Hit­man 2 al­ready ex­per­i­mented with bring­ing mul­ti­player to the tra­di­tion­ally solo series with the ex­cel­lent co-op in the game’s pre-or­der Sniper As­sas­sin stage, and pre­vi­ous games had play­ers con­struct as­sas­si­na­tion chal­lenges for other play­ers on­line. It’s great to see Hit­man con­tinue to ex­per­i­ment with this, and fac­ing off against oth­ers to one-up each other with kills is an ex­cit­ing twist on the sim­ple leader­board ri­val­ries.


Ghost mode will launch as part of the Mi­ami des­ti­na­tion. Post-launch will see it roll out for the other stages. Fans will be pleased to see the en­vi­ron­ment line-up for Agent 47’s lat­est globe-trot­ting fes­ti­val of death in­cludes even more va­ri­ety than the first, with the most re­cent an­nounce­ment show­cas­ing a deep, dan­ger­ous Colom­bian jun­gle. How would you like to try to out-Hit­man your friends? Let us know @OPM_UK.


The Colom­bian jun­gle presents plenty of stealth op­por­tu­ni­ties, for you and a ri­val in Ghost mode.
