Kojima Productions and CD Projekt RED have established a collaboration that has resulted in the latest update for Death Stranding, available on PC. The update brings content related to Cyberpunk 2077, including cosmetic accessories as well as new missions and items pulled straight out of Night City.
Although it is common knowledge not to look a gift horse in the mouth, players dissatisfied with the quality level presented by the recent Polish game apparently did not like this collaboration. The proof of this is the review bombing of the PC version of Hideo Kojima's game with negative ratings on Metacritic. The result is that the PC version of Death Stranding has an average user rating of 3.1/10, compared to a 7.3/10 average for PlayStation 4.
So let's take a look at the trailer of the update and see what exactly it introduces.
Let's start with the update bringing six new missions that feature Cyberpunk 2077 characters, and once installed, Sam Bridges will learn combat hacking so he can deactivate MULE's sensors and crack the security of their trucks (and thus stop them in their tracks), as well as disrupt enemy Odkradek sensors and paralyse their users.
This is not the end of the story, as the update also introduces new equipment. We're talking about the Reverse Trike with a Cyberpunk 2077 theme and improced jump capability, as well as Johnny Silverhand's namesake arm, which not only looks good, but also adds powerful melee capabilities, several cosmetic accessories such as sunglasses for the aforementioned character, and new holograms, beginning with SAMURAI logo and the Atlas Trauma Team vehicle.
Admittedly, despite the reluctance of some players, all this looks very reasonable and fits perfectly into the world created by Hideo Kojima and his team. It's also worth noting that this update is not currently expected to hit PlayStation 4.
