Amount of packages you carry out will affect your overall performance but you can always use a bike or steal an enemy truck to reduce trouble. Other than walking on foot, sometime you may have to rely on ladders and ropes on various terrain.

Having too much goods on your back will even hold you back from resisting when BTs will try to drag you out. Handing over these requested cargos would often bring you new cosmetic items, working tools or something to fight them.

Death Stranding Update for Days Gone Live Now

Bridge Baby from Death Stranding makes its way into open-world survival game Days Gone in latest update patch.

Now that Death Stranding, hotly-anticipated action strand game of 2019 has been released for PlayStation 4, players can finally get a career of making deliveries in a post-apocalyptic world carrying their "Bridge Baby" in a pod.

However, PS4 owners can also go out exploring another dystopian world of survival horror in Days Gone from developer Bend Studio with its newest content update, carrying same theme from latest title of Hideo Kojima.

Recent release of patch 1.6 brings exclusive cosmetic upgrades for free that are unlockable in both starting a new game and game plus mode. Your motorbike tank gets replaced with a BB unit usually carried around by Sam Porter Bridges.

You will be riding Deacon's same drifter bike model but it will be modified with tanks, decals, and frame paint. This probably doesn't give you the same weird vibe of Death Stranding but having BB sucking its thumb inside is pretty close.

An official Tweet from developers have announced release of their newest update with a short preview trailer for it.

Instead of being haunted by ghostly creatures known as "Beached Things", players will be running away from hordes of freakers. Whether they are chasing a guy on a bike or a baby in gas tank matters little to these mindless monsters.

Additional fixes include ability to numerously reset Ambush Camps, Hordes, Infestation Zones and Jobs. "Black Friday" leaderboard gets a one-time only reset and number of Freaker ears is increased to let you repurchase ammo and weapons.

During development phase of DS, both Kojima Productions and Guerrilla Games were working together in collaboration. Bend Studio has contributed as well and now they are introducing gears and items inspired by the game.

Days Gone arranged an unconventional cross-promotion to celebrate launch of Death Stranding that only make sense in a twisted way. Another nice little common ground these two titles have is that they both divided critics and fans upon release.
