Hey, you got Cyberpunk 2077 in my… Death Stranding? Yes, they did. A selection of new Cyberpunk-themed items are now available in DS.
So we haven’t really covered the bumpy launch of Cyberpunk 2077 here at BG, but it’s been quite a ride. Without getting into the bug-a-thon and last-gen craziness though, it’s still a massive launch with tons of gamers taking the plunge.
And now 505 Games has announced that the PC version of Death Stranding is getting in on the act with some official crossover content. No, the two fictional universes aren’t merging, but there is some special content that Death Stranding’s Sam Bridges can now take advantage of. And that includes a pretty major new gameplay addition.
For starters though, here’s what’s new:
- Cyberpunk 2077 themed Reverse Trike vehicle
- “Johnny Arm” modelled after Johnny Silverhand’s robotic arm that can be equipped and used in game
- New holograms and a “Trauma Team” floating vehicle hologram for certain constructions
- Several fashion items including Johnny Silverhand’s sunglasses
As for the new gameplay, that comes in the form of a new hacking mechanic. The feature lets players “target enemy machines and apply negative status effects”. As an example “Players can now stop Mule sensor poles from activating for a period of time, stun enemy Odradeks, and even short out the electronics in Mule trucks to prevent them from moving. “
All of the above is available as a part of version 1.05 of Death Stranding, but is exclusive to the PC edition.
Both Death Stranding and Cyberpunk 2077 are available now, and the former is on sale for 50% off via Humble Bundle. So if you’ve yet to dive into one of the most celebrated games of 2019, now’s as good a time as any.
