Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission in HITMAN 2. He will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent notoriously known as The Undying due to his reputation as a master of faking his own death.
In the live action announcement trailer, Faba is speaking to his therapist and begins to hint at his unique approach to contract killing, as many random items in the room could potentially serve as useful weapons in his unorthodox profession. We also gave you the opportunity to vote to unlock one of these items in HITMAN 2.
Your choice was between the Flash Grenade Robot, Earphones Garotte and Explosive Pen. Now, voting is closed…
And the WINNER is… #UnlockPEN!
With 42% of the total vote, we’ll be adding the Explosive Pen into HITMAN 2!
This unique item will be unlocked by any HITMAN 2 player that plays ‘The Undying’ Elusive Target contract. Simply playing the mission will complete the ‘Explosive Penmanship’ Challenge and add the item to your inventory. We know that many of you might want to use your new tool to eliminate Mark Faba, so we’ve made sure to add the Explosive Pen into the mission itself as well. If you look closely enough, you’ll be able to find all three items, so that you have at least one chance to use whatever item it is that you voted for. However, only the Explosive Pen will be added to your permanent inventory.
Here’s a look at the Explosive Pen in action:
The Explosive Pen is a non-illegal item that can be freely carried by Agent 47. It can be locked on to a target and thrown for a lethal kill and will explode shortly after with a powerful blast. It can also be throw to the ground before exploding. If you want, you can also conceal it inside a briefcase.
The Undying Elusive Target contract will start in HITMAN 2 on November 20 and will run for 14 days – an extension of 4 days and a change to what we originally announced. We made this change to ensure that we give players two weekends to take on the mission. Good luck!
