Quote:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today announced that international actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission for the Hitman 2 video game. Bean will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin. Notoriously known as “The Undying”, Faba’s reputation as a master of faking his own death is second to none, ultimately causing the International Contract Agency (ICA) to put an imposing bounty on his head.

Actor Sean Bean to Sttar in First Elusive Target Mission for Hitman 2 Video Game

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today announced that international actor Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission for the Hitman 2 video game. Bean will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin. Notoriously known as “The Undying”, Faba’s reputation as a master of faking his own death is second to none, ultimately causing the International Contract Agency (ICA) to put an imposing bounty on his head.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming HHitman 2 video game” said Bean, “It’s always exciting to take on a new role, and I look forward to seeing my character in action when the Elusive Target mission launches.”

“We are very proud to partner with the talented Sean Bean on the first Elusive Target mission in Hitman 2,” said Hakan Abrak, Studio Head, IO Interactive. “Elusive Targets have become a distinguishing trait in Hitman games as part of the constant stream of free live content for all players to enjoy. This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many updates, features, modes and franchise firsts coming to Hitman 2, making the next chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination a richer game for our passionate community and newcomers to the series.”

In the new live-action announcement trailer, Mark Faba, played by Sean Bean, is introduced 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 Faba’s unorthodox profession. While the session ends badly for Faba’s therapist, the video closes with a familiar character emerging, who has been patiently watching the entire time—the masterful Agent 47. The interactive trailer also asks viewers to vote on three different items referenced in the trailer to unlock an exclusive Hitman 2 weapon later in the game. For more information, visit: elusive-target.hitman.com

The first Elusive Target mission, entitled The Undying, is scheduled to release on 20th November, one week after Hitman 2 launches on 13th November, and will run for 10 days. Once the mission is available, players must stop Mark Faba before he can utilize his expert surveillance, infiltration and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race event in Miami, and if anyone can take down Faba for the last time, it’s Agent 47.

In Hitman 2, Elusive Targets are unique, high-stakes contracts that are only available for a limited time. These missions are free for all players, allowing one chance to assassinate the target and if not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retried. The Undying Elusive Target is first of many post-launch, free live content updates and missions that players will be able to enjoy in Hitman 2.

Hitman 2 will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC beginning 13th November 2018. To learn more about the Hitman 2, please visit hitman.com.

They killed him off too soon in GoT. He was great!

Agreed. I wish they had picked a character for him to play who was going to be around for longer. Still, he did a great job. I suspect the series isn't going to end well, the last season after they stopped following the books wasn't very good.

I don't know if I should feel sorry for Sean Bean to be killed yet AGAIN, or to hear that all his deaths in so many movies were fake. :cool:

Either way, what an excellent choice!

They killed him off precisely when he needed to be, based on the source material. Them's the breaks. It's not as if he didn't know what he was signing up for, after all.

I love the fact they're clearly referencing his propensity for playing characters who get killed, by casting him as a character named The Undying who inevitably gets killed. It's a nice little meta-joke.

They might be trying to create a recurring arch-nemesis for 47 I guess?
