Daemon X Machina received some extra content a few months ago, including online multiplayer, new co-op missions, additional cosmetics, and more. Marvelous also collaborated with CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to implement crossover DLC by bringing Geralt and Ciri to Daemon X Machina.

We scored the game a 7/10 in our Daemon X Machina review, saying, "The missed potential of the story and minor issues with mech-vs-mech combat and multiplayer loadouts make Daemon X Machina fall just short of its potential, but the foundation is strong. As a total package, it’s on the verge of greatness; it just needed a little more time in the shop tinkering."
