With Black Friday behind us, we can celebrate the other retail holiday that celebrates online retailers. Cyber Monday is upon us, and one of its bounty of offerings includes the recent release Hitman 2 for cheap. Like the head of an assassination target who stood precariously near a bandsaw, it’s already half-off.
The deal comes from GameStop, which is offering up to 65% off select games. Those include Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Hitman 2, among others. Hitman stands out at the low price of $30, a full 50% off the usual price, even though it just launched on November 13.
If you act fast enough, you may even be able to kill Sean Bean. He’s the game’s first Elusive Target-limited time missions that give you one chance at taking down a special victim. Bean plays Mark Faba, an ex-MI6 agent notorious for faking his own death. The mission kicked off on November 20, but only lasts for two weeks.
«Hitman is about experiencing the anticipation of seeing whether a plan will work when you try it for the first time,» critic Edmond Tran wrote in GameSpot’s Hitman 2 review. «It’s about feeling the tension of briskly walking away from a bad situation, hoping you can lose the suspicious guards. It’s the satisfaction of knowing the machinations of a level so well that when a target moves into a particular place at a particular time, you have the perfect way to intervene. Hitman 2 is a familiar experience, but in the Hitman world, familiarity is an incredible strength.»
