20 video games you didn’t know were set in the same universe
The next match Callisto Protocol at one point he was considered to be in the same universe as PUBG. However, some creative differences caused this aspect to be completely removed from the game. Still, the fact that it was even considered shows how much video games love crossovers.
Of course there are multiverse events like the Super Smash Bros franchise i Fortnite, but there are games that could potentially be set in the same universe as each other. Whether it’s cute references or the characters themselves, these video games show that the MCU isn’t the only one making cameos.
10 Wolfenstein and Doom
Wolfenstein i Doom are the franchises that fueled the FPS boom of the 90s and are incredibly influential video games in their own right. What some people may not know is that Doomguy and BJ Blazkowics are actually related.
The developers have confirmed that BJ Blazkowicz is Doomguy’s great-grandfather. Given the excess of both franchises, this is no surprise. The Blazkowics’ bloodline is strong and they seem to take great pleasure in violently purging wrongdoers.
9 Manhunt and Bully
One is a light-hearted and crass school comedy game, while the other is a depressing and depressing murder-fest. Of course, it makes perfect sense that they’re in the same universe. Bully makes several references to manhunt, but one in particular stands out as proof that they are in the same universe.
NPCs will sometimes talk about “watching the new Starkweather movies” as the player passes them. Of course, Starkweather is the main antagonist of manhunt. If Jimmy’s character doesn’t improve, he’s likely to end up like manhunt’s Jaume one of these days.
8 Hitman and Kane and Lynch
Hitman, highly rated series follows the exploits of Agent 47 as he is tasked with killing various criminals and political figures. It was only inevitable that he would encounter other mercenaries in the world. This is exactly what happens if a player visits a certain weapon range.
Kane and Lynch from the game series of the same name can be found arguing and shooting guns. In a dark and comedic moment, the player could kill them at that moment. It’s pretty funny that the story of an entire game franchise could potentially end with Agent 47 killing them wordlessly out of boredom.
7 Sleeping Dogs and Just Cause
sleeping dogs i Just Cause Both are unorthodox sandbox games in the sea of GTA clones. sleeping dogs i Just Cause 2 they take place primarily in Asia, and both focus on taking down large criminal enterprises (a species). There’s also the rather blatant radio ad.
In the ad, the voiceover recommends visiting the beautiful islands of Panau, the same islands where Rico is during the events of Just Cause 2. Not to mention, one of Wei Shen’s outfits is Rico’s. Seeing how “beautiful islands ruled with an iron fist by a tyrant” is also something sleeping dogsthere is likely to be an epidemic of these.
6 Battlefield: Bad Company and Mirror’s Edge
bad company is a more cheerful and comical branch of the battlefield franchise, but it’s still pretty grounded and dirty. However, The edge of the mirror is a dystopian free-running game with elegant buildings and minimalist aesthetics. Despite these differences, both games have strong evidence of being in the same universe.
On the one hand, there is an audio record The edge of the mirror which has shamelessly the bad company crew doing their old fight. Considering how much effort went into getting the voice actors themselves, it’s doubtful that it’s just a cute reference. Not to mention, Faith’s running shoes can be found at the battlefield universe too.
5 Ace Attorney and Dino Crisis
The two series couldn’t be more different. One is a pseudo-detective lawyer visual novel, while the other is a Resident Evil clone with dinosaurs instead of zombies. And yet, somehow, both are more than likely set in the same universe, since As Lawyer features some of the same characters.
The biggest evidence is the main character, Regina, who appears in the game’s canon posing as a car attendant, along with other Dino Crisis characters. Being a secret government agent, being “out of character” could just be a cover, like Black Widow a iron man 2. Not to mention, both refer to the country of Borginia As Lawyer i Dino Crisis, further cementing the connection.
4 The Sims and Mass Effect
Considering how The Sims doesn’t exactly have a “story” per se, it’s strange to think it might be connected to Massive effect, a sci-fi space opera of all things. Still, there’s no evidence to say it couldn’t be. After all, Massive effectEarth is not so strange.
In the sims 3, the player is able to use a time machine and travel to the distant future or the distant past. In the distant future, there is a crowd celebrating how a “shepherd” saved humanity from an “ancient machine god”. There’s also the unfortunate implication that the player himself might be a Reaper, controlling humans for his own whims.
3 Bioshock and Firewatch
Fire watch is a very atmospheric game that feels more like reading a comfortable mystery book than a traditional video game. Bioshock it’s also atmospheric, but crazy girls try to stab the player. Still, the two share some connections that put them in the same universe.
In Fire watchthe player can find the book El Salvador accidentala common vision a Bioshock. The developers have come out saying that these light references are open to interpretation. There is also a fascinating theme at play here. BioshockThe story of is the exact kind of thrill Fire watch the protagonist pursues. As a result, there is a great conspiracy. The Fire watch MC just isn’t a part of it.
2 Watchdogs and Assassin’s Creed
Ubisoft likes to put easter eggs in their video games, but it was just there Assassin’s Creed: Origins that the tie was cemented. An earlier game in the series had one black flag Olivier Garneau’s character as a target watch dogs
Further cementing this thread, Origins provides the player with CCTV footage of Garneau shot by Aidan Pierce. While Ubisoft says these are “non-canon fanservice,” this only extends to the main stories. As for the players, the two games coexist in some strange multiverse, especially with legion adding an actual assassin in the form of Darcy.
1 Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell
Metal Gear Solid i Splinter Cell were the premiere stealth games of the 2000s. Despite this rivalry, both games have playfully poked fun at each other, and both are fans of each other’s franchises. In a minigame MGS3 he called Snake vs MonkeySnake asks if Campbell could send “Sam or Gabe” to do the mission.
This concerns Sam Fisher and the now rather obscure fellow undercover operative, Gabriel Logan Siphon filter. In a sad twist, Sam Fisher also asks the same thing, wondering if “the guy with the bandana” can’t handle this mission, only to be told he was retired (ref MGS4end). It ends with “Then it’s just me,” a sad reminder that Sam Fisher is the last of his kind in triple-A games now.
