Actor Sean Bean just can't catch a break. If there's one thing he's known for, it's his ability to die a great death. Because of that, it shouldn't be a surprise that with his involvement in the upcoming Hitman 2 that his role is to ... yup, you guessed it: Die.
You can see Bean in action in the video announcement at the top of the article where we see the actor as Mark Faba, a man that can be seen opening up to this therapist about his approach to contract killing. Though things don't go well for his therapist, things are about to go even worse for Faba as he becomes Agent 47's new target in a new Elusive mission.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Hitman 2 video game” said Bean in a recent press release, “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,” added 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.

The first Elusive Target mission is called The Undying and it will make its grand debut on November 20.
