    God knows if there's a thread, peace be upon the search function.

    So, Ghost mode and Colombia. I'm excited. Is this going to be released episodically?

    Looking forward to replaying all the season 1 episodes too

    When's this out? Also are they doing the same bullshit where you buy the disc only to have to download missing stages?

    @alastair where you at bro you need to get in on this murder simulator

    I was going to make a point about how much of a pain it is to get up and change discs, but given this is the only game I've pre-ordered for all of 2018 I doubt it'd be much of a chore.

    I'm really looking forward to this. No episodic releases this time so hopefully the full game will be on the disc. Can't wait to get stuck into hiding in boxes again.

    So did I, actually. I spent bloody ages just on Paris. My plan is to play the new one in the same way, getting to know each map thoroughly before moving onto the next one. But as this requires will power, it might not work out so well.

    Including Colorado, which as we all know, was your favourite episode!

    Likewise, as it meant I learnt each map properly.
    I'm also hoping for a platinum trophy this time around.

    We are the true Hitman connoisseurs Al, except for your blind spot towards Colorado which was DOGSHIT

    I'll definitely buy this at some point but I'll probably be playing RDR2 until after Christmas and I still haven't finished the original.

    I really liked the episodic delivery of the original. It forced you to spend more time on each individual level and soak up more of the environment and gameplay. I find it too tempting to just jump straight onto the next level as soon as it opens otherwise

    My hopes were that the episodic thing just continued - at a cost, of course - and we'd be on like episode 20 and counting by now. I know the cover mechanic and AI have changed slightly in 2 but it doesn't look like it's revolutionary.

    The reason we don't have episode 20 is because of you disc wankers

    Will pass on this one I think. I just finally got quite bored with the last one. The last one may have been the most Hitman that Hitman has been in recent years but the sheer wealth of stuff to do and ways to play it just highlighted how you're basically trying to bend a set of defined rules as hard as you can before it breaks (you fail). While trying to show how open and free it is, it felt quite the opposite. Just the same thing over and over again, slightly differently. I like the basic thing you do, but got bored doing it over and over.

    Whereas I played the main level a couple of times if that, then left it for a month or two until I felt like playing the next level. I tried to do the same level over and over and over but the sheen on that wore off after a couple of months. In fact, it was a struggle to finish the game at all in the end as I was SO bored of playing Hitman by the time the end rolled around.

    Had no issues with the episodic release in the first season. Hitman's structure was a great fit for it and it lead to plenty of new escalation missions, elusive targets, updates etc over the course of the release plan. Hope they still deliver in the same vein with this one.

    But with 6 new maps, the new ghost multiplayer mode and all of the previous maps available to play in this as well...There's going to be so much replayability in this game it will be insane. Can't wait.

    My main disappointment is that the user formerly known as PES will be playing this on XBone rather than PS4 and thus we won't be able to do any co-op action.

    I know, I have a 100% track record in backing the wrong console platforms going right the way back to the Magnavox2 days (to be fair, my dad picked that)

    Sean Bean is cast as the first Elusive target which is just genius casting really.

    Only thing I worry about, slightly, is that with all levels available on a disc it means I'll have to get familiar with them all really quickly before an elusive target is revealed. It was only thanks to the episodic release that I could take my time with each level and really get familiar before I could be comfortable enough by the time they revealed an elusive. Hope elusives are spread out every few weeks. Mayble elusives one week, escalations the next and just rotate.

    The elusive targets from S1 have reappeared.
    Although, I didn't bother with most of them..
