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.

Sony has been doing considerably good with their recent PS Plus lineup after coming under fire by fans in July for providing games with seemingly lesser value than usual, especially after they decided to stop including PlayStation 3 titles.

The Last of Us Part 2 Delayed to May 2020

Game director Neil Druckmann revealed a new release date for The Last of Us Part II, which has now been delayed to May 2020.

Last month, players finally got an anticipated early 2020 release date for upcoming PlayStation 4 action-adventure game The Last of Us Part II at State of Play presentation with new story trailer and a gameplay preview for press.

In an unfortunate note, game director Neil Druckmann officially announces today that TLoU2 will now be pushed forward to May 29, 2020 from a previously slated launch date of February 21 for a better playing experience.

It would come as a surprise for many fans that Naughty Dog studio would delay one of their much-awaited releases following a release date reveal even after taking a considerably long development period that started in 2014.

However, Druckmann clarifies that entire game would not likely be as polished as they would like it to be to ensure a certain standard of quality by time they will face a launch deadline as they are closing in different sections of it.

RELATED: The Last of Us Part 2 Gameplay Details

Therefore, they had to choose between two given options of either compromise their vision to release in set time or take enough time to nicely polish the game to maintain excellence while avoiding development crunch time.

Coming next year, The Last of Us Part II is a PS4-exclusive title from developer Naughty Dog and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment, which is a follow up sequel to 2013 universally acclaimed survival horror game The Last of Us.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Goose from Untitled Goose Game

A winged fury from Untitled Goose Game invades the world of Resident Evil 2 Remake in a recent mod.

Following an anticipated launch of classic survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom, it became universally acclaimed and has become a favorite subject of experiment for modder community.

A common trope for RE2 Remake mod is basically about taking a known pop-culture figure to replace with menacing antagonist Mr. X. In a latest twist, a honking force of nature has arrived on Raccoon City to terrorize players.

After giving people nightmares by swapping Thomas the Tank Engine with T-00 model Tyrant known as Mr. X, modder ZombieAli is back again with another of his weird take where he adds winged enigma Goose from Untitled Goose Game.

Lately, the above-mentioned stealth puzzle title from developer House House and publisher Panic has become an indie sensation because of its nonsensical gameplay of running amok in an English village as a goose, creating humorous situation.

Currently a work in progress, ZombieAli has offered a brief peak at how Goose will appear in his upcoming mod.

Marking his arrival at Raccoon City police station, Goose pushes aside the crashed chopper within the building by spreading its buffed wings while approaching to an awestruck Claire Redfield, who tries to point her firearm at it.

When final version of his work will complete, Goose will be fashioning Mr. X's iconic fedora and will include extra HONKS. There is no release date yet but people will surely want to try it out as soon as possible to see an unhinged Goose in action.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds DMX Song

Running loose from last month, this feathered fury has honked its way to many franchise crossovers by fans and become a popular meme. Thus, it has become a worthy subject of sidelining Mr. X in a recent modding experiment.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is already out now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, selling over 4.5 million copies in a few months. Various reports suggest that Capcom is planning a remake for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis to release soon.
