'Death Stranding' Review Bombed After Adding 'Cyberpunk 2077' Content

Hideo Kojima and CD Projekt Red both love a good collaboration it turns out, as Death Stranding gets some Cyberpunk 2077 DLC to celebrate the release of CDPR's new RPG. Some, though, aren't happy about Kojima Productions working with CDPR at all.

It was announced earlier this week that Death Stranding was going to get some Cyberpunk related items, including a shiny new bike, some rad looking metallic implants for Sam's face, and even Johnny Silverhand's bionic arm. Not only is the game getting aesthetic details but the title is getting DLC which will involve Cyberpunk lore and characters in some way.

According to the post on Steam, the update is exclusive to PC and free for anyone with the game already. Sounds like a pretty good deal if you ask us (especially when the game is on sale right now), however, some fans aren't happy with the collaboration and are review bombing Death Stranding because of it.

Reviewing bombing is the act of submitting reviews for games which aren't based on a genuine opinion of the title and what it offers. Instead, angry audience members submit low scores to affect the public perception of the game or affect sales and the developers.

According to ScreenRant, this is what's happening with Death Stranding since the announcement. On Metacritic, it looks like someone has sent bots to submit negative reviews of the game en-masse. Hundreds of reviews have appeared on the score aggregator site and most of them contain the word 'trash'. It's likely someone is botting to increase the number of negative reviews on the game, but who knows - it could be one person submitting each and every one of these reviews or perhaps many upset fans, but the timing suggests at least one person is really unhappy with the new PC update.

Hopefully, Metacritic at least checks the validity of these reviews because we're not sure we believe hundreds of people posted 0s for the game at the same time - do you?
