Eidos Interactive has announced the launch of a new official Web site for Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, its upcoming sequel to the 2000 action game Hitman: Codename 47. The new site contains some general information about the game's storyline, as well as some images of the characters, weapons, and locations that will be featured in the game. It also contains a gallery of concept art and downloadable wallpaper images and music files from the game's soundtrack.
Hitman 2 will include a number of improvements to the previous game, including a choice of first- and third-person perspectives, mid-mission save options, a revised inventory system, and a new ranking system. Players will assume the role of a retired assassin tricked into going back to work, only to find himself the target of another assassin.
We've posted some new screenshots from the game in the gallery above. Hitman 2 is in development at IO Interactive, and it is scheduled for release this spring. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game and visit the new official Web site.
