Cyberpunk 2077 Content Comes To Death Stranding In New PC Update
Death Stranding and Cyberpunk 2077 are joining forces.
The fifth anniversary of Kojima Productions had very little to say about its future this week, but the studio isn't done with its debut game Death Stranding just yet.
Death Stranding has crossed over with other games in the past, such as a promotional Half-Life: Alyx campaign that added a Headcrab and the Gravity Glove to Hideo Kojima's postal-apocalypse game, but the next PC-exclusive collaboration will see it team up with Cyberpunk 2077 for a free and large content update.
Death Stranding will receive six new missions that feature characters and lore from Cyberpunk 2077 and a new hacking ability that allows players to stop MULE sensor poles from activating, stun enemy machines, and short circuit enemy vehicles.
There'll also be a few themed cosmetic items, such as a Reverse Trike vehicle with improved jumping power, a silver hand gauntlet modeled after Johnny Silverhand's robotic arm, and new holograms including a SAMURAI symbol signboard or an Atlas Trauma Team vehicle hologram. All that, and Silverhand's iconic sunglasses.
The Cyberpunk 2077 crossover isn't too surprising, as Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima has a cameo in the CD Projekt Red game. Death Stranding also happens to be 50% off right now on Steam, if you feel like taking a plunge into Kojima's mad hiking odyssey. Alternatively, the Cyberpunk 2077 content will also be available in the Epic Games Store version of Death Stranding. Meanwhile, Cyberpunk has been removed from PSN and Sony will issue refunds.
