This Deathloop Easter egg could provide a solid link to the Dishonored Universe

Plus 8 more secrets you might have missed!

There's only one thing I love more than playing Deathloop at the moment and that's trawling the tunnels of Black Reef in search of the game's secrets.

I've gathered 9 such secrets, references and Easter eggs and placed them into the video-shaped basket below for you to peruse at your leisure. From a detailed look at all of Deathloop's arcade cabinets, through to the Environmental Art team signing their names in trash and some unique shout-outs to movies and games like The Warriors and Tomb Raider (plus some wee and poop), there's plenty in here to discover!

Most notably of all though is quite a compelling reference to the Dishonored universe that might finally provide solid proof that both worlds are linked together. Fans have been wondering if the two games were set in the same universe since the gameplay reveal of Deathloop featured a display of powers that were very similar to those weilded by Dishonored's Corvo Attano. Arkane however has always chosen to sidestep these questions when asked.

Check out the video above to discover what that link is but do be warned; the Dishonored Easter egg I'm referring too appears during the final moments of Colt's adventure. That means it's potentially a pretty big spoiler if you're yet to complete the game. To help you avoid this is if you need to, I've placed that section right at the end of the video so you can enjoy the rest of the eggs in safety before Shifting out of there at the last minute.
