Cyberpunk 2077 Comes To Death Stranding, But There's A Catch

In spite of the many issues surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 since its launch, including having to issue an apology after huge problems with bugs and crashing on last-gen consoles, the new game has teamed with Kojima Productions to give free content to Death Stranding fans.

A trailer posted on both Cyberpunk 2077's and Kojima Productions' Twitter accounts shows Death Stranding protagonist Sam Porter Bridges driving (yes, driving, not walking) a Cyberpunk-themed motorcycle down a long dusty road and sporting a Johnny Silverhand cybernetic arm, as well as a pair of Johnny's distinctive aviator shades. A different shot of Sam looking at himself in a bathroom mirror also revealed cybernetic scarring on his face, much like the ones available in the Cyberpunk 2077's character creator.

An IGN exclusive revealed more than just cosmetics are in store for the crossover. Death Stranding also now offers a Hacking mode, which allows Sam to disable electronics and vehicles, as well as stun enemies. There is also a "Trauma Team" hologram available for some structures.

This isn't the first time Death Stranding has teamed up with another game. Fans may remember Death Stranding releasing Half-Life content in July 2020. In this crossover, players could complete bonus missions which involved finding and delivering companion cubes and earning rewards such as Gordan Freeman glasses, a headcrab hat, gravity gloves, and many more goodies.

This exciting news comes with a catch, however. Like the Half-Life content before it, this Cyberpunk 2077 crossover is only available to PC gamers. Some Playstation fans took to the comments on Kojima's Twitter, begging the studio to bring the content to PS4 and PS5 consoles. However, the company's repeated reply never wavered: "Currently, the collaboration is exclusive to the PC version only. We'll have more announcements coming in the near future, stay tuned!" Kojima's tweet also offered a 50% discount on the purchase of Death Stranding on Steam and the Epic Games store, just in case fans needed more incentive. 

This news comes just one day after Kojima Productions' fifth anniversary, on which the company announced some updates that ended up disappointing fans who were hoping for bigger news, such as the revival of the cancelled Silent Hills game. If Kojima Productions keeps its promise, perhaps the upcoming announcements will reveal more information about what the studio has coming up. 

The Death Stranding/Cyberpunk 2077 update is now available for download on PC.
