Hitman 3 features a stage that could be a clear homage to murder-mystery tales from authors like Agatha Christie and the woman from Homicide She Wrote. As a part of this stage, gamers may even have Agent 47 tackle the position of a detective and remedy a homicide. It’s a dense stage that IO Interactive filled with a ton of element. And a type of particulars is what seems like a reference to the 2019 murder-mystery blockbuster movie Knives Out.
Within the movie, Don Johnson’s character throws an outdated baseball out of an workplace window. Different characters discover the ball repeatedly all through the movie. Nevertheless it additionally makes an look in Hitman 3 as an Easter egg that calls again to that film.
Similar to Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc in Knives Out, gamers can discover a baseball sitting within the grass outdoors of an workplace window within the Dartmoor mansion stage in Hitman 3.
It’s only a enjoyable little nod to Knives Out, I’m assuming. Particularly since baseballs aren’t precisely endemic to British countryside manors.
No phrase but on whether or not Don Johnson is sneaking round in Hitman 3, nevertheless.
