Actor Sean Bean Shows How “The World is Always Your Best Weapon” in HITMAN 2 Launch Trailer

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive today released the Official HITMAN™ 2 Launch Trailer, starring international actor Sean Bean. In the new live-action trailer, Bean discusses the importance of creativity and improvisation to a true assassin, while showcasing a variety of unassuming items that can be utilised as deadly weapons in HITMAN™ 2. From rubber duck explosives and transistor radios to kitchenware and flamingo costumes, the world is truly your weapon. And no one knows this better than the masterful Agent 47, who makes an inconspicuous appearance towards the end of the video with a deadly surprise for Mr. Bean.

Bean will also star in the first Elusive Target mission for HITMAN™ 2, taking on the in-game role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin who is notoriously known as “The Undying” due to his reputation as a master of faking his own death. Elusive Target No. 1 Starring Sean Bean, entitled The Undying, will release on November 20, one week after HITMAN™ 2 launches on November 13, and will run for a limited time.
 
Elusive Target missions are unique, high-stakes contracts that are free for all players, allowing one chance to assassinate the target and if not successfully completed, the contract cannot be retried. Once Elusive Target No. 1 is available, players must stop Mark Faba (a.k.a. Sean Bean) before he can utilise his expert surveillance, infiltration and demolition skills to complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race event in Miami, and if anyone can take down Faba for the last time, it’s Agent 47.

HITMAN™ 2 is the follow-up to the internationally acclaimed video game, HITMAN. Featuring entirely new hyper-detailed sandbox locations full of living, breathing environments to explore, HITMAN™ 2 offers players the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilising an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and a variety of stealth techniques to creatively trigger their own unique chain of events.
 
HITMAN™ 2 introduces new ways to play with the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early access bonus for consumers who pre-order the HITMAN™ 2. Players can also enter the HITMAN™: Sniper Assassin Competition and put their marksman skills to the ultimate test for a chance to win the grand prize of getting their name and likeness included in future HITMAN™ 2 content. For more information, visit: https://hitman.com/competition.
 
HITMAN™ 2 will feature a unique and brand-new take on 1-versus-1 multiplayer competition with Ghost Mode. Players will put their assassination skills to the ultimate test as they compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets faster and cleaner than their opponent, while utilising weapons, items, outfits and ghost crate supply drops to help accomplish the overall mission.
 
HITMAN™ 2 will be available for PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and PC beginning November 13, 2018.

HEED THE SPIRITS’ CALL IN RASTAKHAN’S RUMBLETM—COMING TO HEARTHSTONE DECEMBER 4

Step into the arena with 135 brutal new cards in the next expansion for Blizzard Entertainment’s internationally acclaimed digital card game. Pre-purchase a special 17-pack Challenger’s Bundle and receive the Ready to Rumble! card back, and select the 50-pack Rumble Bundle to receive the card back as well as the King Rastakhan Shaman Hero

 

 

 

World-renowned troll gladiators and fans of fierce competition from across Azeroth will soon crowd the fabled Gurubashi Arena for Rastakhan’s Rumble, the next expansion for Hearthstone, Blizzard Entertainment’s smash-hit digital card game. Starting December 4, players will vie for glory with 135 new cards and a mojo-fueled arsenal of new mechanics.

Once per generation, the troll tribes of Azeroth make a pilgrimage at King Rastakhan’s behest to participate in a no-holds-barred smackdown for the ages. This year, nine teams have formed around their mightiest combatants—Legendary Troll Champions who each represent a Hearthstone class. The teams enjoy the blessings of the Loa, the ancient spirits worshipped by the trolls, who have manifested themselves in the form of powerful Legendary minions. Players can also seek the aid of Spirits—a new kind of class-specific minion, each with impressive effects that synergize with the Loa.  

It won’t just be King Rastakhan’s favor that players will compete for—the raucous crowd must also be entertained! Players looking to exhibit their gladiatorial prowess with flashy, over-the-top finishes can do so with Overkill—a new gameplay mechanic that rewards players for dealing excess damage to enemy minions.

Players thirsty for glory should keep their axes sharp, for soon after the launch of Rastakhan’s Rumble they’ll be able to test their might against Azeroth’s strongest troll champions in Rumble Run, the exhilarating new single-player Hearthstone experience coming with the expansion. Gurubashi event organizers will be sharing more details with all of the potential gladiators out there in the weeks ahead.

Coming December 4 to Windows® and Mac® PCs; Windows, iOS, and Android™ tablets; and mobile phones, Rastakhan’s Rumble card packs will be winnable in Hearthstone’s Arena mode, and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone’s other card packs. Starting today and up until the expansion is released, aspiring combatants can pre-purchase Rastakhan’s Rumble card packs in two different bundle options: the 17-pack Challenger’s Bundle includes the Ready to Rumble! card back, while the 50-pack Rumble Bundle also includes a new playable Shaman Hero—King Rastakhan. These bundles are available on any platform for $19.99 and $49.99, respectively—one of each can be purchased per account.

Seek out honor, glory, and more details at www.RastakhansRumble.com.

Marvelous Europe turns it up to 11 in free-form rhythm title Gal Metal, rocking on to Nintendo Switch, 2nd November

Joy-Cons™ at the ready – DMM Games’ free-form rhythm game Gal Metal makes its debut exclusively on the Nintendo Switch platform today, 2nd November in Europe, accompanied by a DLC pack and physical retail edition packed with excellent extras.

Available digitally for the Nintendo Switch, hardcore metalheads can rock out in Gal Metal using the Joy-Con™ controllers to create unique rhythms by way of easy-to-learn, yet difficult-to-master, drumlines – all while saving the Earth from an alien invasion.

Fans can also get their hands on the ‘Encore Pack’ DLC, adding five new characters to the game, each with their own unique story episode and song, released on the same day as the base game.

Those keen to get their hands on even more content can also purchase Gal Metal: World Tour Edition from selected retail stores from the day of release, which contains the base game and Encore Pack DLC, bundled together on the same Nintendo Switch cartridge, along with an exclusive set of Heavy Metal stickers. These stickers feature an assortment of in-game characters that owners can use to customise their Nintendo Switch or Joy-Con™ controllers.

Gal Metal is a rhythm game designed for Nintendo Switch that turns the Joy-Con™ into drum sticks. Players take hold of the Joy-Con™ and rock along with the music in order to repel would-be alien conquerors. This is accomplished by creating complex musical performances and racking up millions of points using personal free-form drumlines based on over a dozen different beats. With Nintendo Switch Pro Controller support on offer as well, players can choose how they want to jam and earn metal power to use against these nefarious invaders in this uniquely adlib-friendly rhythm spectacular.

Planet Earth is on the brink of invasion after humanity ruined the peace and quiet of the universe with the broadcast of metal music on the Voyager probe’s Golden Record. Aliens picked up the signal and couldn’t stop headbanging, and now they’re dying off because of it, so they want revenge! The only thing standing between these music-hating creeps and total planetary domination is…a metal band?

Landing over the sleepy Tokyo suburb of Kichijoji, the invaders abduct an unassuming high school student and merge his soul with that of Rinko, the drummer in her high school’s outrageous all-girl metal club. Now sharing Rinko’s body, this unlikely duo will have to team up to take down the aliens with the only weapon they have: metal.

Joining this pair are Rinko’s bandmates in K.M.G. (Kichijoji Metal Girls): Kia, super sci-fi nerd and synthesizer player; Mani, resident rich girl and bassist; Shiimi, delinquent and lead guitarist; and Erii, gentle giant and backup guitarist. Together, they’ll perfect their music to thwart the aliens and protect the earth, all while navigating the rigors of regular school life.

Gal Metal is published in Europe by Marvelous Europe and in North America by XSEED Games. The game will be released today, 2nd November 2018, alongside the ‘Encore Pack’ DLC. Gal Metal: World Tour Edition will be available to purchase from selected retail stores on the same date.
