The existence of factions means danger.
Both the original 'Hotline Miami' and the sequel, 'Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number' are headed to the PS4. Today, Devolver Digital and developer Dennaton Games shared the first real look at the game since last year's teaser.
What seems clear is the presence of multiple playable characters and an even greater array of stylistic killing techniques, including dual wielding. There even looks to be way to control two characters at once in an alternating fashion. As for the violent factions, the sequel is said to be partially inspired by some overzealous fans of the first title.
From the High-Def Digest review of 'Hotline Miami:'
"The plot and theme of 'Hotline Miami' is incredibly hard to do justice in words. The protagonist, the aptly named Jacket (for his distinct, 80s-era letterman jacket), serves as a hit man for an unseen, mysterious force. Given his assignments via phone through colorless messages (e.g. go check on the babysitters), Jacket carves out a trail of carnage from one mission to the next, in a repetitive gameplay style that fortunately throws viewers a much-needed narrative twist."
