Hitman 2's Sean Bean Elusive Target Release Date Misses Game's Launch

Hitman 2's Sean Bean Elusive Target Release Date Misses Game's Launch

You too can kill Sean Bean.

We already knew that actor Sean Bean was coming to Hitman 2 as the game's first Elusive Target. Now we know exactly when Hitman 2 players will get a chance to take out Bean, whom Hollywood has killed around 25 times. The first Elusive Target is coming on November 20, one week after Hitman 2 launches.

Of course, you won't be killing Sean Bean, the actor. Instead, you're attempting to take out Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent who is now a freelance assassination. Faba is known as "The Undying" because he tends to fake his own death. It's time for Agent 47 to make it permanent in Miami.

Like Elusive Targets from the first season of Hitman, you can only take a shot at Faba for a limited time. And if you miss, the target is gone and cannot be tried again.

The first Elusive Target might be missing launch, but Warner Bros and IO Interactive did release an infographic showing off all the day one content, available below. Hitman 2 is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 13, 2018.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
