Death Stranding: Director’s Cut was released on PC today, delivering an enhanced version of the first – and currently only – game in the “Strand genre” that game designer and Batman fan Hideo Kojima led development on.
On PC, you can expect the same graphical enhancements as the regular edition of the game, with new content and enhanced gameplay features added to protagonist Sam Porter Bridges’ story. You can expect more weapons, gear, vehicles, modes, and missions, as well as additional areas to explore, as well as expanded scenarios and UI improvements.
The Director’s Cut was originally released on PS5 in September of last year, and the PC upgrade will set you back $10. Death Stranding did well after launch as the game saw over 5 million sales on PS4 and PC in March 2021.
As for Kojima, a recent report claimed that he was working with Microsoft on a new Xbox game, although this has yet to be confirmed or officially announced. In other genre news, Norman Reedus recently teased that Death Stranding 2 could be in development.
For our updated Death Stranding PS5 review, Justin Clark said, “The Director’s Cut still does an admirable job of enhancing this experience for maximum immersion. Even when trying to push himself towards something more accessible, he doesn’t there’s still no such thing as this game.”
