The beginning starts with a broadcast of a plane incident. This minor plot device works on multiple levels.
- Adam Jensen’s team uses a plane: he paradrops.
- Could be a reference to the Malaysia flight
- Could be a reference to 9/11
- Could be a reference to lack of confidence in things we can control like when Jensen paradrops. Most people can’t fly a plane.
- Could be a reference to conspiracies in general. This is a game about governments, corporations and big figures hiding things.
