Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of collaborations between nightclubs and video games, and the new Hitman the output is no different! Originally starting life on Playstation 2, Hitman follows the story of a bald assassin who is sent on various missions to kill his targets. The game quickly became one of the most popular versions on the Sony console, racking up a large number of sales alongside many of the gaming system’s biggest titles such as Grand Theft Auto (City of vice and San Andreas), The Getaway, Ratchet & Clank, Need For Speed, Gran Turismo, Medal of Honor, Pro Evolution Soccer, and The Simpsons: Hit and Run. Now, with a line of next-gen consoles proving to be sure-fire hits with gaming fans, ‘Hitman 3’ has been released and even includes an in-game techno nightclub based on one of Berlin’s most famous hotspots. Although the club is titled “Club Hell” for copyright reasons, it is clearly inspired by the legendary German venue. Berghain and even includes a level / mission called “Kill the DJ”.
With graphic designers including the club’s graffiti-covered concrete walls in the design, the club even features a techno soundtrack. Hitman is certainly not the first game to present a club in this way. A few years ago we saw Marshmello team up with Fortnite while the masked mogul performed a “live set” in the game, much to the delight of American leader MelloGang’s young fan base. There have even been appearances for Boiler room Legend Solomon in GTA, while the iconic London Ministry of Sound club featured in intermediaries 2 (2014), with Clapham Party-based Infernos cheese making an appearance in the original Between Film in 2011. On top of that, Ibizaclub based Amnesia featured in 2000s scenes Kevin and Perry are going big, as the two main characters of the film performed a DJ set in a crowded main hall, where a fictional character Eyeball Paul occupied a residence.
