There's a lot of excitement for next month's Hitman 2, especially after the first one ended up being such a rousing success. The sequel is expected to expand on the original, with better graphics and improved gameplay mechanics that should make for a smoother experience. It seems like movie fans have another reason to pick this game up; killing Sean Bean.

It was revealed that Bean would be the first Elusive Target for the sequel. For those unfamiliar with the first game, Elusive Targets are special enemies that players only have one chance to kill. If players don't complete the mission within the time limit, or the target is aware of the player, they will run and never be available to assassinate again.

Making the sequel's first Elusive Target Sean Bean is genius since the actor is known for dying a lot in the movies and television shows he has appeared in. Some of his most memorable deaths happened in the first season of Game of Thrones and the ending of Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.


Fans will also enjoy how the trailer somewhat references his reputation since he discusses how people keep trying to kill him. Obviously, he is talking about the people who are trying to kill his character but fans of the actor know better. It's cool seeing Bean having fun with this and here is hoping that he doesn't die in a movie anytime soon.

Check out the Hitman 2 trailer below. Hitman 2 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13th.
