Confirmed Features HITMAN™ 2


#863

no


#864

As much as i would like to see that type of multiplayer in hitman im not sure how well hitman mechanics would work on other players.


#865

Hey Watson, I’ve noticed in Colombia, the NPCs speak English in a Spanish tone instead of speaking Spanish. So, you might want to make a change that NPC’s tone corresponds to locations.


#866

Good point. They’d have to change some mechanics for multiplayer to make it it’s own thing I think.
Imagine trolling someone by dragging them everytime you KO them.


#867

well, that’s not 100% true. they still mix in some Spanish with the accented English


#868

Not even that they would have to remove several items that are in the single player mode. Imagine people just throwing C4/rubber ducky’s randomly in crowds. That wouldn’t be the stealthiest thing in the world lol.


#869

Lol
I honestly forgot they existed (rarely if ever use them). I guess there would have to be a penalty for npc casualties, maybe 2 or 3 wrong and you lose the game?
Could simply ban such items too? No explosive ducks allowed, only flash and concussive versions for MP mode?


#870

To be honest i’m just stumped on a way to keep the Hitman feel with a pvp like gamemode. So far I have 3 ideas: 1.A person trying to assassinate a target while a sniper tries to find find and eliminate the assassin, 2. poison duel where two people try to blend in with npc’s while trying to identify and poison each other, and 3 a AC wolfhunt style gamemode where your each assigned a target and whoever assassinates their target in the most unique way wins.


#871

Isn’t that this spy game thing? Spy Party?
That would actually be awesome…potentially.

Imagine this scaled up to a HITMAN map with the disguise system???
I think that’d be a good fit for stealth multiplayer…almost like a live cluedo.


#872

HITMAN really world be a fantastic set piece for pvp, or coop for that matter (I’m still holding out hope the shadow client survives HITMAN 2 and becomes a coop partner in HITMAN 3).


#873

Watson doesn’t work for IO. He’s a admin on a private owned fan forum :wink: so not sure he’ll be able to do much about it.

Edit: Oh, silly me. I thought he meant our Watson from the forum. Thank you @cakeblock941 for pointing that out.


#874

he meant for Watson to add it in the OP


#875

I don’t think dragging a body slower is really a challenge. The challenge is in finding ways to isolate people and not get seen.


#876

@Travis_IOI @Lasse_IOI will Hitman 2 feature awesome Loadingscreens again, like the first 3 Games did?


#877

This is already in the OP.


#878

I really love that they have chosen to go back to localised accents when it comes to the voice acting, it just adds something extra. Hearing a british/American accent in Japan or Italy kinda takes you out of the immersion of the world. I’m really looking forward to playing H2, even if I think the name is stupid.


#879

They already have awesome loading screens :sunglasses: YEAAAAAAAAAAAH


#880

I remember that IOI said he would add a language and accent to each location,but it’s not the first time he promises anything


#881

Well he has fulfilled his end of the bargain, the foreign language characters speak with an accent and occasionally speak in their native language.


#882

Now the question is will it just be the same english vioces for season 1 in the hitman 2 disc?
