Sean Bean Revealed as Hitman 2's First Elusive Target

Sean Bean Revealed as Hitman 2's First Elusive Target

Bean's toast.

Elusive targets are back for Hitman 2, when the game launches worldwide next month. The first elusive target has been revealed as none other than Sean Bean, who dies in basically every film and TV Show he appears in.

Just below, you can see the live action trailer for the debut elusive target in Hitman 2, starring Sean Bean. There's go gameplay in the trailer, but merely a tease for what we can expect come November when you'll encounter Sean playing Mark Faba.

For those that missed out on 2016's excellent Hitman series, the elusive target is a character that appears in one mission, for a very limited amount of time. During this period, you've got one chance to take out the elusive target, and should you fail, they'll vanish for good, meaning you've got one shot, and one chance to take out Sean Bean before he's gone.

In other Sean Bean-related news, our guides writer Jake Green has actually met the man himself, a number of times. Bean's family own Broomhill Friery in Sheffield, where Jake went to college/university, and the actor will even serve customers himself during certain times of the year. Hey, the more you know.

Hitman 2 will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 13. For everything you need to know about the game, including all we learned from playing the Miami-based mission earlier in the year, head over to our Hitman 2 guide.
