Hitman 2 will improve on the original in every conceivable way. The game offers a variety of ways to complete a mission, 1st and 3rd person perspective, mid-mission save options, a new ranking system and a revised inventory system that allows you to acquire and carry weapons and equipment from mission to mission. Codename 47 is armed with an arsenal of over 30 weapons such as pistols, sub-machine guns, shotguns and sniper rifles. You also have access to new non-lethal weapons and pacifying gear including chloroform, poison darts, stun guns and fibre wire for garrotting.
Missions take place in countries across the globe and each location features inhabitants speaking in their native tongue.
To further heighten the dramatic atmosphere the game's music has been composed and performed by the Budapest Symphonic Orchestra.
