New Hitman 2 trailer shows off Siberia Sniper Assassin map

Trek through the snow for some stylish assassinations a la Agent 47 in the latest Hitman 2 trailer.


Hitman 2 players have plenty of new content to look forward to tomorrow when the new Siberia Sniper Assassin map debuts as part of a set of new DLC for all Expansion Pass owners.

The new long-range mission finds players being transported to the Perm-14 prison facility near the Siberian tundra as they suit up as Agent 47 or work in tandem as Stone or Knight for a rousing co-op adventure.

This mission will have players working to start a prison riot to keep people from finding out what they've done. Two primary targets include Russian mobster Rman Khabko and warden Vitaly Reznikov, who is trying to give Khabko an early release. Both targets must be eliminated for the mission to be a success, which means Agent 47 has his work cut out for him – as do you.

Previously, our own Kevin Tucker reviewed Hitman 2, awarding it a 9 out of 10:

"Modern-era action gamers have been conditioned to expect large-scale firefights, flashy explosions, and immediate gratification in general, and that's just not what IO Interactive's latest release is about. Through all of the complex machinations and staggering amount of opportunities within its levels, Hitman 2 manages to be a game with one surprisingly simple demand: think things through. As it is in life, perception and consideration go a very long way here, and players who are willing to put in the proper amount of time and effort will see just how perplexing, engaging, and rewarding stealth action games can be. Hitman 2 will undoubtedly serve to define the stealth genre for years to come, and I can't wait to see where IO Interactive takes the series next."

You can check out the new Siberia Sniper Assassin map when it arrives tomorrow, July 30, for all Expansion Pass owners. Be sure to let us know what you think of it if you give it a try.
