IO Interactive Releases the Second “How to Hitman” Video!

IO Interactive released the second installment of their Hitman 2, “How to Hitman” video series. Focusing on how assassins (namely Agent 47) think, this new video showcases the art of stealth…

This video explains how to avoid detection using different tools. One of which is the new picture-in-picture feature – a mechanic that helps gamers keep track of key events. Someone found a body. Security guards noticed a random bald guy walking around a secure location. The game will notify the player when these types of things happen in an attempt to keep them informed; these warnings will allow them to alter their approach as they respond to the ever-changing environment.

Hitman 2 looks to be the best game in the series. That said, I hope IO reinforces the game’s AI. Adding in powerful tools to help would be assassins while leaving the NPC’s and enemies in the current state – and by current, I mean how they were in the previous title – will result in an easy-going experience. Accessible, sure. But also, void of any challenging content (sans a random boss fight or segments that remove the option for stealth). We’ll have to wait till November to see how it all shapes up.

You can check out the first video in the “How to Hitman” series here. Hitman 2 will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13th, 2018. Continue to check in with UFG as we continue to follow this title!
