Mild spoilers inbound for the opening of Deathloop
If you’re a trophy hunter hounding after your next platinum, then Deathloop has plenty of thrills in store. However, not all of them are difficult to acquire. In fact, this trophy in particular, may just be the easiest to attain if you don’t pass it by.
Upon starting the game, our protagonist Colt wakes up on a deserted beach with no recollection of his prior events. After traversing up a cliff-face into an abandoned bunker of sorts, the player will be greeted with a key panel to unlock the door ahead. While the actual code for success is saved for an objective, players can input the classic “0451” code that debuted in the game System Shock in 1994. Since its inception, the code has also been seen in the likes of Alien Isolation, Bioshock, and the original Deus Ex.
Unfortunately, the door will remain locked, but hey, a little fun along the way is what really matters.
Deathloop is out now and you can count on Dexerto to help you uncover its mysteries.
