The prospect of Hitman 2 has seemed to be "more of the same good stuff, in new places" but with the game's launch now only one month and a day away, developers IO Interactive today announced that-surprise!-it'll introduce a 1v1 competitive multiplayer mode.

Hitman 2 takes players on a global adventure across a mix of bustling worldwide locations, including a vibrant Miami setting with the colorful ambiance of an in-progress motorsport race bringing a new backdrop to the series. You chase the same targets in the same location, but you're each existing in your own instance. You can check out this mode in action in the gameplay trailer below.

The folks at Eurogamer got a chance to go hands-on with Ghost Mode - here's over 15 minutes of footage.

Agent 47 is the world's deadliest assassin, and the only person who can match him in skill, stealth and execution is...himself. Therefore, Ghost Mode allows two players to compete against each other online, both as Agent 47, to assassinate the most targets in a match.

Essentially, you and another player are given the same five targets to eliminate, with a kill earning you a point.

As an additional pre-order bonus, full game early access will be available for Gold or Collector's Edition owners four days before release.
