Sean Bean has signed up for "Hitman 2".

The 59-year-old actor will portray a former MI5 agent turned freelance assassin, Mark Faba, who becomes notorious for faking his own death in the video game.

He said: "I'm thrilled to be a part of the upcoming "Hitman 2" video game.

"It's always exciting to take on a new role, and I look forward to seeing my character in action when the Elusive Target mission launches."

In the exclusive live-action trailer for the first Elusive Target mission, The Undying, fans can see Faba speaking to his therapist and he begins to hint at his unique approach to contract killing.

While the session ends badly for the clinician, the video closes with a familiar face emerging, the masterful Agent 47.

Players of the highly-anticipated video game will then have to stop Faba and attempt to assassinate him before he can complete a contract at the Global Innovation Race event in Miami.
