Can my PC run Hitman 2?

Agent 47 is back in Hitman 2 - the sequel to the rebooted series from 2016 and is the seventh entry in the Hitman franchise overall. Set to release on November 13, 2018 (or November 9, 2018 for Gold Edition and Collector’s Edition), Hitman 2 launches with six different missions/locations for you to hunt down your targets. There are also multiple multiplayer modes, including the very first competitive 1v1 mode to be seen in a Hitman game. The competitive 1v1 game mode is called “Ghost Mode” while the cooperative multiplayer mode is called “Sniper Assassin.” Its recommended requirements rival that of only Just Cause 4

Ghost Mode pits two players against each other in a race to securing 5 clean kills before the other person does. Each player operates in their own dimension essentially, but there is an item that you can use to sabotage the other’s efforts so there can definitely be some cheeky plays. Perhaps your opponent just completed a kill but still needs to hide the body - you could use the interdimensional token to distract an NPC into the path of your opponent to prevent a clean escape. Sniper Assassin drops you (and potentially a friend) into an environment where you have a certain amount of targets to eliminate in a given amount of time. You (and potentially your partner) must strategically navigate the area in order to successfully find the best kill opportunities.

Built using the same Glacier Engine II, Hitman 2 actually shares its minimum requirements with its predecessor, HITMAN, and a decent amount of computers should be able to pass. Specifically, IO Interactive set the minimum CPU at the Intel Core i5-2500K and the AMD Phenom II X4 940. The X4 940 is almost a 10 year old CPU, and the i5-2500K is almost 8 years old, so this hopefully means that many of you can at least pass the CPU requirement. Hitman 2’s minimum GPU requirements are the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 and the AMD Radeon HD 7870. If you have the GeForce GTX 660, you’ll also be able to pass the GPU requirement for 89% of computer games. It isn’t confirmed yet, but Glacier Engine II’s biggest advantage is its ability to control the AI for a large amount of NPCs at once while still maintaining 30 FPS, so we believe that reaching the minimum specs will allow you to play with at least 30 FPS on Low-Medium Settings.

Some levels are said to contain 2000 NPCs which is a massive jump up from the average of around 300 in the 2016 title. This is easily one of the biggest contributors for the stark difference between the recommended system requirements of the two titles. The recommended CPU for Hitman 2 is the Intel Core i7-4790 clocked at 4GHz (at this time there is no official recommended AMD CPU). However, Fallout 76 shares the same Intel CPU requirement, so we can extrapolate that the AMD CPU needed is around the Ryzen 5 1500x. The GeForce GTX 1070 and AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 are the recommended video cards for maxing out Hitman 2. IO Interactive may be setting the bar too high though, as only 5% of the computers to come through CanYouRUNIt have passed the recommended requirements leading up to release.
