Death Stranding

Death Stranding “Director’s Cut” launches September 24th. State of Play brought the goods, with a new look at Kojima Productions debut title.  Hideo Kojima’s majestic solo debut has been expanded upon from the ground up. Originally debuting in November 2019, the divisive title was touted as the first “strand” game. Connecting players in an unorthodox multiplayer concept, Death Stranding heavily leans on the concept of communal assistance in the open world. 

Death Stranding “Director’s Cut” Launches September

Remastered for the PlayStation 5, the “Director’s Cut”  is ready to bring the following features: 

  • Experience environment effects with the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback.
  • Get closer to the world of Death Stranding with bespoke adaptive trigger resistance.
  • Hear sound effects come to life in 3D Audio (requires compatible headphones).
  • Get into the action quickly with the PS5 console’s ultra-fast SSD and near-instant load times.
  • Choose from two picture modes – Performance Mode with upscaled 4K and up to 60FPS or Fidelity Mode in native 4K – both with ultra-wide and HDR support**.

On top of the quality of life improvements, equally new additions to the core gameplay are present too. From the widely fun A.I assistant “Buddy Bot” to the useful implementation of “Cargo Catapults”, Death Stranding is definitely far more than a walking simulator. Surprisingly, for players who already own the game digitally / physically, the new remaster will be available for $10 this September. Save files will be able to transfer over progress too. 

Alongside the Cyberpunk and Half-Life themed DLC, additionally the most interesting addition here is the inclusion of new story missions. Whilst details are scarce, it is understood that characters familiar and fresh will appear. 

Death Stranding “Director’s Cut” is available to pre-order now from the PlayStation Store, from £44.99.
