Sean Bean will be making a very special appearance in IO Interactive’s upcoming title Hitman 2 as an “Elusive Target” Agent 47 can assassinate. The move comes as a tongue-in-cheek joke about Bean’s TV and movie characters usually dying.
Elusive Targets were introduced in 2016’s Hitman game, which allowed targets to pop in and out of the game for a set duration of time. If you miss your opportunity to kill them before then, they’re gone forever. But if you assassinate them in time, you will be rewarded a cosmetic item. Bean’s Elusive Target name is “The Undying” and in the trailer above, he breaks the fourth wall a couple times, alluding to his film reputation.
Check out the footage above and grab Hitman 2 when it hits shelves November 13.
