  • News Hitman 2 Continues to Expand with Bank, Prison, and Beach Stages

    Bank on it

    Hitman 2 is a gigantic game – especially if you’ve imported all of the content from its outstanding predecessor. But developer IO Interactive has committed to a service-like update schedule for the stealth action sequel, and in a new blog post it’s outlined the roadmap for the remainder of this year. Much of the content is available...

    Hitman 2 Starter Pack available now

    There's nothing quite like the Hitman games. Developer IO Interactive has refined the gameplay loop to a tee, its brilliantly open ended murder sandboxes rife with potential. The first PlayStation 4 entry is available now on PS Plus, but before then, the studio was offering up bits of it for free in a bid to get...

    IO's sequel to the rather excellent Hitman is out today on PS4, so fans will have already started taking on contracts and finding unique ways to dispatch their targets.

  • Round Up Hitman 2 PS4 Reviews Boil Down to 'Good Work, 47'

    Viva Tobias Reaper

    Hitman 2 is flying under the radar, which is unfortunate given how great its predecessor is. Reviews are finally out for the assassination simulation, though – and it sounds like more top-notch Agent 47 action. While some critics have labelled the sequel a "fancy" expansion pack, that’s good news as far as we’re concerned,...

  • News Past Hitman Titles Blood Money and Absolution Rated for PS4 in Europe

    Making a killing

    Hitman 2 is on the brink of release, but it looks like Warner Bros has bigger plans for Agent 47. According to two new ratings spotted on PEGI's website, Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution will be making their way to PS4.

  • News Sean Bean Even Dies in Hitman 2's Live Action Launch Trailer

    Get creative

    Grab your explosive rubber ducks, as it's almost time for Hitman 2. The sequel to the brilliant Hitman is looking just as good and absolutely packed to the gills with things to do. Ahead of the game's launch on 13th November, a new trailer has been released, and it stars Sean Bean once again. Of course, he dies thanks to a poisoned...


  • News Hitman 2 Has Perfected the Series, Claims New Trailer

    Good work, 47

    IO Interactive has been developing Hitman games for a long time now, and while not every one has been a hit, the last entry certainly was. Luckily, the developer is carrying on with the same formula, and if we're to believe the latest trailer for Hitman 2, the sequel has perfected the assassination sandbox gameplay we know and love...

  • News Hitman 2 Has a Whopping 118 Trophies to Unlock

    No Platinum though

    Hitman 2 is only a few short weeks away from release, and in usual fashion, its Trophy list has just popped up on Exophase early. And the headline here is that the base game ships with a mind-boggling 118 trophies. It has a core list of tasks such as completing tutorials and carrying out certain kills, but every level has its own...

  • News Have Some More Hitman 2 Miami Gameplay on PS4 Pro

    Killing it

    In case you didn't know, we're big fans of Hitman here at Push Square Towers. The first season from 2016 is jam-packed with murdery things to do, and the variety of approaches you can take to achieve your goals provides near endless replayability. It's why we're never bored of seeing more of Hitman 2, coming on 13th November. We've seen...

  • Soapbox Don't Sleep on the Hitman Series Or Its Upcoming Sequel

    Lloyd loves strangling strangers

    The Hitman franchise is an anomaly. It's a game focused on the act of killing, but it's not a shooter. Instead, it's a puzzle game with dozens of variables and parameters. It's a stealth game where you can walk out in the open. It's a series with not one but two (pretty dismal) Hollywood adaptations, with a stoic...

  • News Hitman 2 Heads to Mumbai, Vermont, and More

    Good work, 47

    All of Hitman 2’s locations have been revealed in a new cinematic trailer. In addition to the previously announced Miami and Colombia, gaming’s second-greatest skinhead will be flying first-class to Mumbai and New Zealand. He’ll also be heading to a traditional American suburb in Vermont named Whittleton Creek, and to a...

  • News Hitman 2's First Elusive Target Mission Stars Sean Bean

    The Undying

    The first season of IO's Hitman on PS4 had a great set of missions to start with, but the limited time Elusive Targets kept things ticking over. These special missions gave you one chance to take down a brand new character in one of the game's existing levels, and they're making a return in Hitman 2. The very first Elusive Target for...

  • News Hitman 2's Ghost Mode Sounds Really Cool

    Face off against another player online

    Hitman 2 is only a month away from release now, and to celebrate that, IO Interactive has revealed a brand new mode that comes packaged with the sequel.

  • News Hitman 2 Reveals the Tools of the Trade

    Duck decoy

    You can play Hitman 2 pretty much any way you like, but the series is always at its most fun when you get creative – as this new trailer illustrates. While it doesn’t really reveal much that fans won’t already know, it’s a good reminder for newcomers that you can assassinate unsuspecting targets with items like, y’know, rubber...



  • News Hitman Season 1 Content Will Be Playable in Hitman 2

    Two for one?

    We're big fans of Hitman on PS4, and Hitman 2 is looking like a promising sequel. Something we didn't expect to see is this latest news regarding the upcoming game: not only will it have a full suite of new missions to enjoy, but all the levels and missions from the first game will be present and correct. That's right, Hitman Season 1...

  • News Hitman 2 Highlights Its Living, Breathing Sandbox

    Miami vice

    The best thing about Hitman is its huge sandbox levels, and fortunately this year’s sequel will continue that trend. IO Interactive’s keeping a lid on the full roster right now, but it has been showing off its Miami stage, which is built around a race track. Depending upon the actions that you take, you’ll alter the outcome of the...

  • News Hitman 2 Will Blend In at Gamescom 2018

    New info on the way

    Since Hitman 2's announcement earlier in the year, no new information has been made available. IO Interactive appears to be saving it up for Gamescom 2018, where the developer has suggested it'll be shedding some...


  • News Hitman's Summer Pack Makes Marrakesh Available for Free on PS4

    Download it now

    Have you been enjoying the hot weather? We here at Push Square Towers have been slowly melting for most of the summer, but IO Interactive wants to turn up the heat. The studio has announced the Hitman Summer Pack, which essentially gives you access to the game's third level, Marrakesh, for free. Also included is the ICA Training...


  • Rumour Hitman 2 Level Locations Leaked

    Murder map

    Part of what made IO Interactive's previous Hitman title so compelling was its mission locations. The episodic assassination adventure saw Agent 47 traveling the globe in order to carry out his contracts, providing a nice variety of environments to explore. If a recent leak is to be believed, Hitman 2 is set to feature a similarly diverse...

  • E3 2018 Hitman 2's Miami Backdrop Looks Like a Brilliant Sandbox

    Miami heat

    Open world games are amazing fun, but we’ve always been fond of the sandboxes that you find in Hitman. The levels in these games aren’t necessarily open world, but they’re very large and meticulously designed, allowing for an enormous range of gameplay potential. And one of the early stages in Hitman 2, the sun-baked setting of...

  • E3 2018 Hitman 2 Will Not Be Episodic, Launches 13th November

    Full game from day one

    We really enjoyed Hitman’s episodic format, but its successor will launch as a full game from day one. IO Interactive has promised a regular stream of content drops and updates, but you won’t have to wait for any of the levels to arrive. Oh, and you’ll be able to play from 13th November – that’s not far away. The...

  • News Hitman 2 Leaked Ahead of Pre-E3 2018 Reveal

    Sloppy work, Agent 47

    Like a Hitman mission that goes horribly awry, Agent 47 has fluffed his lines here. Danish developer IO Interactive hinted at Hitman news earlier today, with publishing partner Warner Bros promptly following up with a video clip of an F1 race track. It seems both parties have been teasing Hitman 2, as t

  • News Hitman to Reveal Classified Details on 7th June

    New targets incoming?

    A new target is in Agent 47’s sights, and we’ll get all of the details on 7th June. The official Hitman Twitter account has teased new content for IO Interactive’s stealth action smash, which may mark the first meaningful update since the studio’s transition to independent outfit. Exactly what the Danish...



  • News IO Interactive Hints at New Hitman Sequel

    "We're making great progress"

    The newly independent IO Interactive is working on a new Hitman game, which it seems won’t be a second season for its already successful reboot but instead an entirely new title. As part of a blog post celebrating the release of its recent Game of the Year edition, boss Hakan Abrak said that it’s making “great...


  • News Hitman: Game of the Year Edition Adds New Campaign and Content

    $20 upgrade seems pricey, though

    Hitman is back following developer IO Interactive’s divorce from parent company Square Enix. The Danish developer has announced Hitman: Game of the Year Edition, a huge digital bundle set to release on 7th November which includes the original game in its entirety – as well as a bunch of new content on top...

  • News New Hitman Announcement Coming on 24th October

    It's definitely not Season 2

    If there are two things we love reporting here at Push Square, it's: 1) Reporting on Tweets, and; 2) announcements of announcements. Therefore the Hitman Twitter account's reveal that a new content announcement for the game will be coming at 2PM CEST - that's 1PM BST - on 24th October was an absolute godsend to us. What...

  • News Agent 47's Polishing His Pate Ahead of New Hitman Content

    Bald but back

    There’s new Hitman content on the way. IO Interactive has been through a turbulent time behind-the-scenes, breaking away from owner Square Enix just as its first season of assassination contracts were at peak popularity – but it seems like it’s got its proverbial in order, and is ready to reveal new content on 24th October. The...



  • News Square Enix Considering Flogging Hitman

    The stealth series could be leaving along with IO

    Now that Hitman developer IO Interactive is parting ways with Square Enix, the future of the flagship franchise is hanging in the balance – and a possible sale of the Hitman IP could be on the cards. In a financial briefing, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda hinted that the license for...

  • News Square Enix Makes Shock Decision to Sell Hitman Developer


    Well, this is a bolt from the blue: Square Enix has announced its intention to sell Hitman developer IO Interactive. The studio – behind one of the best games of the previous year – was believed to be working on a second season of stealth missions, but now the much-loved brand’s future has been put in jeopardy. In a note to investors,...


  • News Hitman Captures the Sun Soaked Sapienza with HDR Support

    Free update due this month

    If you've seen high-dynamic range – or HDR, as it's better known – in person then you'll know that it makes a massive difference to the way that colours are represented on fancy television screens. And following Sony's decision to patch the technology into every PlayStation 4 on the market, games are starting to take...


  • Soapbox Why Hitman Is the Funniest Game of 2016

    A hands-off approach means excellent comedy, says Sam Brooke

    The Hitman series has always taken pride in being a bit odd. The wacky settings of Blood Money, for instance, range from a party based on heaven and hell to a hillbilly wedding where everybody has a gun. However, Hitman 2016 is easily one of the funniest games of this year - mainly because...

    Review Hitman: Episode 6 - Hokkaido


    So, it's all over: seven months in the making, Hitman is finally finished and all episodes are released. From the heights of stunning Sapienza to the lows of crummy Colorado, it's certainly been a journey – but does Hokkaido end up being a fitting swansong to an excellent game or a bad note to end on? We say, wholeheartedly, the former...


  • News Hitman Heads to Hokkaido at the End of the Month

    A hit, man

    We're a cynical bunch here in the games media, and we like to have a grumble when things don't work out exactly like we want them to. Hitman was one such game that received the full pelt of the industry's ire, with its complicated episodic format being the source of irritation. But, y'know what? Credit where it's due: IO Interactive and...

    Review Hitman: Episode 5 - Colorado


    It's safe to say that Hitman has been excellent so far, but despite the variety of locations, every mission has been similar in that they've all been set in largely public places. The latest level – set in a militia-held apricot farm in rural Colorado – takes the game in a different direction, focusing more on stealth than previous...

    Review Hitman: Episode 4 - Bangkok

    Too many Kooks

    Like milk and cookies, fish and chips, and a copy of Ride to Hell: Retribution and the nearest volcano, hotels and Hitman go together very well. There's something about the maze of rooms, the abundance of staff, and the classy yet clandestine nature of these establishments that always make good missions for Agent 47, and the episodic...

  • News Lovin' Hitman on PS4? There May Be Much More on the Way

    Three seasons planned

    Despite looking like a disaster prior to release, Hitman's episodic model has actually worked out swimmingly. Regular updates from developer IO Interactive, alongside frequent "live" missions, has meant that the game has remained fresh for longer than it would have as a boxed title – and the studio's still not done with this...

  • News Hitman's Bangkok Episode Solves a Push Square Mystery

    Another case solved

    A bit of behind-the-scenes baseball for you: Push Square Towers has been trying to unravel a mystery this week. We received a record in the post over the weekend by a band called The Class, which included an authentic copy note and more. The problem? We've never heard of the supposed Brooklyn-based outfit, and despite our...


  • E3 2016 Hitman PS4's Getting a Bonus Episode This Summer

    Natural born assassin

    Are you loving Hitman on the PlayStation 4? You may be excited to learn that IO Interactive will release a Summer Bonus Episode on 19th July, in between the recently released Episode 3 and upcoming Episode 4. While this extra will not include any new locations, it will boast two new missions, set in the Sapienza and Marrakesh...

    Review Hitman: Episode 3 - Marrakesh

    Don't Morocco the boat

    The beauty, complexity, and atmospheric brilliance of Sapienza was always going to be a tough act to follow for IO Interactive, but the bustling Moroccan city of Marrakesh provides ample room for innovation in this month's new episode of Hitman. With crowded markets, labyrinthine streets, and plenty of interiors to explore,...

    Review Hitman: Episode 2 - Sapienza


    The quiet, picturesque Italian seafront town of Sapienza is a retiree's dream. Bathed in sun, the cobbled streets are full of cafés, trattorias, and street performers – not to mention the diamond blue sea, and the quaint old church that sits next to it. How strange, then, that for all its serenity, Sapienza works exceptionally well as...


  • News Hitman PS4 Plops Platinum Trophy in a Nearby Port-a-Potty

    Is that it, man?

    The bizarre Trophy inconsistencies continue, as Hitman – the stealth series' big-budget episodic reboot – will not pack a Platinum. This is despite mobile spin-off Hitman Go: Definitive Edition recently launching with one of the silvery blue statues. Make any sense to you? Nope, us neither. The package's pots are instead...

    Review Hitman: Intro Pack

    Making a killing

    When Hitman's release schedule was revealed, a lot of people weren't happy about its episodic nature. Many fans feared that the game would be a massive disappointment akin to the likes of Hitman Absolution, but that is most definitely not the case. On the surface, the Intro Pack may seem a bit steep at its £11.99/$14.99 price –...




  • News Hitman PS4 Just Got Even More Needlessly Complex

    Two versions of the same game announced

    At this point, Hitman's model is so convoluted that we're struggling to think of where to begin with this article. For those out of the loop, the already confusingly named Hitman on PlayStation 4 will launch in an 'unfinished' state. However, the term 'unfinished', according to Square Enix, doesn't describe...

  • News Hitman PS4 Whacked Until March 2016

    Blood worry

    The reveal of Hitman's reboot won't go down in history. The confusing announcement made during Sony's big E3 2015 conference only got more baffling when it was confirmed that Agent 47's revival would be released piecemeal. IO-Interactive's sticking with that approach, but it's at least decided to bide its time, and put the release on...



  • News Hitman PS4 Gameplay Footage Sneaks Online

    Served up in secret

    While there's been much confusion regarding Hitman's distribution method, we've been more bemused by publisher Square Enix's decision to conceal a release that's due out in less than six months. This leaked gameplay footage is almost certain to get whacked by the organisation in no time at all, then – but at least it gives us...

  • News Hitman on PS4 Won't Release as a Full Game, and It'll Be Digital Only at First

    Let's try to make sense out of this

    You may have seen the new Hitman at E3 2015. You may even have gotten hyped for it. But that hype is slowly draining away for some, as Square Enix has slowly but surely explained how the game won't be releasing in full on the 8th December. Posting a question and answer segment on the title's official website, the...
