Sean Bean is the star of the first ‘Elusive Target’ mission for the forthcoming game Hitman 2.

Bean will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent who’s become known as “The Undying” since going into the freelance assassin business. His reputation for being a master of faking his own death apparently precedes him.

Once the mission becomes available, players must stop Faba before he can utilise his expert surveillance, infiltration and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Racing Event in Miami. Come on Agent 47, you can do it!

Says Bean of the role, “I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Hitman 2 video game, truly an iconic entertainment franchise that continues to excite and delight fans. 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. Agent 47 will have his hands full!”

Hitman 2, erm, hits for PS4 and Xbox One on November 13, with the Elusive Target No. 1 – The Undying mission following on November 20, and set to run for 10 days.

The cool Bean-starring video below doesn’t just advertise the mission, it also offers an opportunity for watchers to vote on one of three different items within it to unlock as an exclusive weapon in-game. Get more info here.
