Deus Ex Is Everywhere… Even In Hitman Absolution DLC

By Ishaan . November 19, 2012 . 2:51pm

Siliconera has learnt of some of the downloadable content headed to Hitman Absolution. This will be in the form of additional suits and guns, which will give Agent 47 new outfits and weapons to use during his missions.

 

The DLC will include an Adam Jensen-inspired Deus Ex suit with a Deus Ex gun, a Public Enemy suit with a a Bronson M1928 submachine gun, a High Roller suit with a Krugermeier 2-2 Pistol, and a High Tech suit with a Bartoli Custom Pistol.

 

Three of the suits and weapons mentioned above were offered as pre-order bonuses for Hitman Absolution at various retailers in North America, but the Deus Ex suit and gun are new. I suppose Sarif Industries are in demand—even Wei Shen from Sleeping Dogs wants their products.

 

(Note that the image above is from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, not the Hitman Absolution DLC.)

 

Hitman Absolution is available today for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    So this is what it means to be square nowadays: pointless pandering and tie-ins.

    I mean, sure they did this back in the day, put Cloud in FFT and most of the FF7 cast in fighting game, but still. Hitman really needs a fan-service from Deus Ex?

    • heartless141

      Agreed. The series is strong on its own.

    • doubleO7

      Why not? I think crossover DLC is great. Deus Ex is awesome. Hitman is awesome. Mix two awesome things together and what do you get? Double awesome. Honestly, I wish they did this more often.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      Why not? It isn’t even part of the base game. It’s optional add-on content for whoever wants it. You’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

      • Godmars

        N-7 armor wasn’t part of FF13 yet it was DLC in that game. Now that’s low.

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          But… again, I don’t see what’s low about it. People have brains to think with. If they don’t want the DLC, they won’t buy it. If they do want it, they will? Seems fairly straightforward to me.

          • Godmars

            Then what about the limitedness on Square’s part on committing effort and resources towards something like this? True its not much, but it shows which direction they’re thinking, which is sadly a vapid one.

          • Scrooge_McDuck

            Are you saying that if it’s not an element you care about, it’s not worth doing?

          • Robert Leonardi

            N-7 armor skin compared to lighting’s story arc + Colosseum + more characters to use as partners. Yeahhhhh Square did no effort in this part right ?

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            Jesus Christ, it’s a bunch of outfits. This stuff doesn’t take more than one guy a couple of weeks to work on, max.

            @google-12464eac3ac3568c256eb69ab7ef84a5:disqus , hate to dredge up old crap, reopen old wounds, but by some counts some assets from FF13 were made into 13-2. Nevermind that time and resources which were taken away from Versus as it continues to languish in limbo.

            And yes, after all this time, all the non-responses given, I have no faith in Versus being good. I expect that once/if it comes out there will be plenty of arguments about its quality, but more to the point if it turns out to honestly not be a good, that the people defending it fall back to what they’re entitled to – their opinions and only their opinions – but that’s not going to change the minds of others as they give reasons behind their opinions. 

            @Scrooge_McDuck: I’d like to see them move away from extravagant cutscenes, try to use such as a bar to set game mechanics by, but I don’t see that happening.

          • Robert Leonardi

            yeahhhh cause you didn’t dredge up old crap by mentioning FFXIII to begin with right ?

            hate to be judgmental, but from what i’ve seen with your run, it seems you’re pretty much against SE in every topic they’re mentioned. Why so sour ?

            Its their way of getting money, developers and programmers need to eat too

          • Godmars

             @google-12464eac3ac3568c256eb69ab7ef84a5:disqus  Why so sour? Because Front Mission was turned into a TPS then seemingly forgotten, this gen ata least, while Wada “promised” near annual releases of FF seemingly not understanding what such would do to story or game quality? Many fans don’t understand it either.

            I’m just going to stop here. No real point in going on with this.

          • Robert Leonardi

            never… speak… about… front mission… EVER ! That’s just like asking a gundam fan whether they have seen G-savior or not, well i found Type-0 to be rather decent, and its story was actually good for once, considering on how bad the last few FFs were (like FF12, urgh, people liked it, but as for me who was a character development nut, it was bad), and FFXIV was actually decent after 1.0, but… it kinda fell short few minutes before Seventh Umbral (server  overload says hi).

            As for story telling aspect, i personally think that’s because of the stigma of this generation’s gaming, where nearly everyone critiques about graphics right off the bat, and to trade that off, they killed the storyline and game time for better graphics (which resulted in… XIII series). To which i’m very glad that atleast ‘Tales Of’ still follows its old traditional formula (don’t change what’s not broken), so kudos to baba and here’s to hoping that SE won’t Fk things up in next KH & FF installments

          • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

            It’s low because a generation ago some of this stuff would have just been part of the game. Not specifically this stuff, But certain games with On-Disc Outfits and Color Pallets locked away.

            Remember when Unlock all Codes were codes and not paid DLC downloads? For every legit cool use of DLC, there are just as much charging for things that really have no reason to be. And it sets an… Unsettling Precedent. When will a line be drawn? I mean, if we aren’t entitled to all the things on the disc, then what’s stopping makers from just completely littering games with abusive DLC, intrusive DRM and Spyware? What is stopping them from turning off our games at a whim? 

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            And a generation ago, these games wouldn’t have looked nearly as good or enjoyed high production values in other areas such as sound, AI etc. either. And players today demand that games look and sound good. There isn’t a simple answer, unfortunately.

          • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

            @Ishaan:disqus  I don’t really see the relevance, Sound and Graphics have consistently been improving since the inception of gaming.

            It’s just the tech for a constant streaming of new content, or the ability to digitally lock on disc content didn’t readily exist until the current gen. 

            If you give people power without regulation, they will abuse  it absolutely. People brushing it off with “Oh Well” isn’t really helping.And as much as people want to think that bitching and complaining won’t help, at the very least a few companies have responded to the outcry with somewhat more savory practices, Like Capcom recently.

            @twitter-120407324:disqus Regarding your reply below, you don’t honestly believe that the increase of quality in visuals/audio has been the same for development in the way of facilitating ease of creation?

            Work needed to be done scales incredibly linearly regardless of what “generation” you are in, because development isn’t done on a base of “generation”, but on an assumption of hardware abilities and thus level of detail: you need X amount of something to be done, this will take you X amount of man hours.

            Whether you are making something for N64 or Cryengine 3 pc just decides how much works needs to be done because the scale is completely linear.
            Which invariably leads to what has been called “the industry getting too expensive”. Cosmetic dlc like this is because of spoiled gamer demands (everything must look AAA!), not “evil corporations”.

    • Scrooge_McDuck

      Really, of all DLC practice, optional cosmetics are among the least offensive.

      It is irrelevant whether it’s a suit that resembles Adam Jensen’s or obvious shout-outs to James Bond and John Dillinger.

    • CptPokerface

      It’s optional dlc that changes nothing but appearance and has a couple of weapons. It doesn’t harm Deus Ex or Hitman for it to be included in the game.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      @google-12464eac3ac3568c256eb69ab7ef84a5:disqus   I think everyone has had the chance to say and make their peace on the topic. Let’s all agree to move on.

  • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

    Oh Boo, I was hoping 47 would get the hair and glasses like Sleeping Dogs.

    I never cared for that bald look, reminded me of a well dressed wang.

    • Scrooge_McDuck

      We haven’t seen any picture of the Deus Ex suit, as far as I know.

      … though Agent 47 with hair would be… wrong. He’s also known as “that bald guy”, after all. Give him hair, than he’s reduced to nothing!

      • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

        OH! I thought the “High Tech Suit” was the Deus Ex suit. 

        Thank god it’s not, it barely looks like it, though now it seems a bit redundant to have a High Tech Suit and a Sarif Suit.

  • $30632660

    -_- It’s not even worth saying.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Then if you are not going to post more than this, as grandma would say, say it elsewhere.

  • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

    But did he asked for this?

  • ragingmerifes

    Why not dress him as Cloud Strife?

    • Göran Isacson

      You know, silly as this is? I am all for it. It would make him stand out like crazy, but I would still like to see it.

      … Or give him a Sephiroth wig and a mission to infiltrate a con to kill a nerdy target. My god… the possibilities… the cosplay possibilities! You have to dodge fans who want to take pictures of you, avoid lines, maneuver a very packed floor with tons of people… the possibilities!

      • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

        Or dress him like Nomura and have him dodge inquisitive Versus XIII fans! The most terrifying day in 47′s life. He’ll never be the same again.

        • Göran Isacson

          Oooh, that’s a good one too. And a mission I think Nomura would replay over and over and have him choose to just go on a wild gunrampage.

          *And for those out there not in the 47 know asking themselves “but how would a tall bald white man ever be confused for Nomura, 47′s disguises are somehow ALWAYS foolproof, no matter how out of place he SHOULD be. Zat is ze joke.*

  • enorka miho

    THe Deus Ex outfit looks cool on 47… Great design.. 

    Btw, to people who always forget that SE does not only publish or own FF… Please move on… All those points that you guys made are really redundant.. We had all seen it all over the place.. So please, stop copying someone else’s idea over and over again.. I think we had had enough of it… And if you really cant get enough of whining, you are more than welcome to do so by writing your emails to SE… Cuz its pointless doing it here except causing stagnation..
