Beat another player to the targets in Ghost mode
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.
SILENT AND DEADLY
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.
