Death Stranding and Cyberpunk 2077 have joined forces.
Death Stranding is no stranger to crossover events. Earlier this year, to celebrate the release of Half-Life: Alyx, a Headcrab and a Gravity Glove were added to the game. It also rather famously promoted Monster Energy, and the show Ride with Norman Reedus in-game.
It seems that Hideo Kojima's hiking adventure is ready for a new major collaboration too.
The game's Steam page announced that a free update for the game is celebrating the arrival of Cyberpunk 2077. It seems like a surprisingly large content update, too. The patch includes “six new missions featuring characters and lore from Cyberpunk 2077”.
Alongside that, a new hacking ability is being added to the game allowing Porters to target enemy machines as well as stop Mule sensor poles from activating.
There are of course a bunch of new cosmetics added. These include:
• Cyberpunk 2077 themed Reverse Trike vehicle with improved jumping power
• “Silver Hand” modelled after Johnny Silverhand’s robotic arm that can be equipped and used in game
• New holograms including a SAMURAI symbol signboard and a Atlas Trauma Team vehicle hologram for certain constructions
• Several fashion items including Johnny Silverhand’s sunglasses
You can check out a trailer for the cross-over here:
This crossover appears to be exclusive to the Steam version of the game, which happens to be 50% off right now. Sorry PlayStation users.
This collaboration is not entirely unexpected. Hideo Kojima was scanned into Cyberpunk 2077 and appears as a cameo in the game. The game even features a BB from Death Stranding. It seems only fitting that Cyberpunk 2077 would get some support in Kojima's own game.
