All Locations Revealed In New Hitman 2 Trailer

Hitman 2 released a new trailer today, teasing a glimpse of all the diverse locales to expect in Agent 47’s newest adventure. The trailer splices together clips of a dark, stormy beach, a dusty train yard, tropical jungles and a bustling tourist attraction. Based on what we know, two of these locations are a racetrack in Miami and a cartel mansion located in the Colombian jungle. The video’s description also gives the names of each new location: "Hawke’s Bay, Mumbai, Vermont, and the mysterious Isle of Sgàil," so you can guess which is which in the trailer below.

Earlier this week, IO Interactive announced that legendary villain-actor, Sean Bean will play the first elusive target in Hitman 2, which makes sense as Bean’s long list of on-screen deaths has become a meme.

Hitman 2 comes out as a single release this time around, on November 13. For more intel on the assassin's next mission, stop by our constantly updating Hitman 2 news hub for exclusive hands-on content.

Ion Maiden Blasts Onto Switch, PS4, and Xbox One

Earlier this year, we got a solid look at Ion Maiden, 3D Realms' new first-person shooter. Ion Maiden attempts to capture the glory days of shooters like Duke Nukem, Blood, and Shadow Warrior, right down to the pixelated art style, ridiculous number of secret areas, and frantic action.  3D Realms just confirmed, after much teasing, that the game will be arriving on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as well.

According to a press release, 3D Realms is teaming up with Russian publisher 1C Entertainment to bring the game to consoles in Q2 2019.

Major Layoffs At MMO Studio Trion Worlds

Major Layoffs At MMO Studio Trion Worlds

Massive layoffs have reportedly affected MMO developer Trion Worlds today, the studio behind MMOs like Rift and most recently Atlas Reactor. Reports indicate that the company slashed its staff across its U.S.-based studios to only 25 people from a previous 200.

The layoffs come as a result of an acquisition from the German Gamigo group, which publishes a number of casual and MMO titles in its portfolio. This transaction of Trion Worlds and its games created what appear to be a significant number of redundancies with Gamigo, resulting in an incredibly severe reduction in staff.

While we reached out to Trion Worlds this morning for confirmation and comment, they did not reply. They did tell Gamasutra, however, that many names remain and confirmed the layoffs, but did not mention the number. Gamasutra's sources reported the reduction to 25 employees.
