First of all let me just re-iterate that in a two week period we are getting Hitman 2, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Fallout 76.

Hitman 2 heads to the Columbian Jungle

Agent 47 will be heading to the jungles of Columbia in the second location that has been revealed for Hitman 2. We have already seen the hustle and bustle of the first location, a race track in the streets of Miami, but this location promises a lot less people and a lot more hiding in bushes, which is my go-to tactic in Fortnite, so I should be an expert on this map! The teaser trailer doesnt give...

EGX to get Developer Sessions for Hitman 2 and Lego DC Super Villains

Thumbstix will be attending EGX 2018 as per usual, and one of the highlights for me are the developer sessions, and it was the Hitman Season 1 session in 2016 that really opened my eyes to the quality of the game.
