Hitman: Absolution gets Deus Ex disguise in DLC


Let your eyes scroll over the contents of Hitman: Absolution’s new Suit and Gun Collection, and let me know when you spot something out of the ordinary:

Hitman: Absolution: Bartoli Custom Gun, Hitman: Absolution: Krugermeier 2-2 Gun, Hitman: Absolution: Bronson M1928 Gun, Hitman: Absolution: High Tech Disguise, Hitman: Absolution: High Roller Disguise, Hitman: Absolution: Public Enemy Disguise, Hitman: Absolution: Deus Ex (Adam Jensen) Disguise, Hitman: Absolution: Deus Ex (Adam Jensen) Handgun.

Square Enix have proven themselves rather fond of spreading their protagonists about in DLC. Sleeping Dogs featured Jenson’s distinctive future-pants too, as well as 47’s suit and tie combo.

The DLC pack costs £3.99 and is already available on Steam.

Games could do with a little more healthy self-reference and crossover outside of the fighting genre if you ask me – and if the paperwork is too prohibitively tricky elsewhere, then some interweaving among a publisher’s own franchises seems a good place to start. What do you think?
