Contact of Duty: Contemporary Warfare has a sly reference to Hunting Glass Studios


Mission 13 in Contact of Duty: Contemporary Warfare has a rapid, simply missable reference to old-college immersive sims like Deus Ex and BioShock. And though it sounds like a callback to Ray Bradbury’s classic sci-fi novel about details handle, it is essentially a reference to Hunting Glass Studios.

As you comply with Captain Value by means of the darkened manor in the Contemporary Warfare mission ‘Going Dark,’ you will at some point come to a door in a hallway.

You will strategy the door and enter the passcode, which is 451.

Innocuous, possibly? But provided the thousand doable 3-digit codes you could input, it would be a quite enormous coincidence to take place upon the exact same numbers made use of for passcodes in a quantity of critical games that have come just before.

‘451’ started displaying up in games with Hunting Glass Studios’ Technique Shock, exactly where it seems – as it does in Contemporary Warfare – as a passcode for a door. It would be made use of once more in Technique Shock two, appearing in that game as 45100, and then in the original Deus Ex, as the passcode to the very first locked door (451). The code has also showed up in Thief, BioShock, and Dishonored.
