After shifting the blame to the charity’s director and wiping her hands clean, Dame Barbara is currently building back her reputation to restore her standing, and she is believed to be working with a body double to protect herself at public events. Players will have 10 days to complete the mission.
The latest Elusive Target, entitled The Politician, is available now (8th March) through 18thMarch within the Hawke’s Bay (New Zealand) location.

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. HITMAN™ 2 will also 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 is now available for PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC.
