During today’s State of Play broadcast, Kojima Productions revealed that the director’s cut for its critically acclaimed action game, Death Stranding, would be released for the PlayStation 5 on September 24, 2021. Described as the definitive experience, Death Stranding Director’s Cut is a fully remastered version of the original that features not only new content, but enhanced gameplay features. Those include “more weapons, equipment and vehicles, a variety of new modes, missions and areas to explore, expanded storylines, and enhancements to the UI.” Death Stranding Director’s Cut will also introduce new online features such as Friend Play and Leaderboards. The upgrade will cost only $10 for Death Stranding fans who already own the PS4 version.
Although I can’t really go into too much detail about the new missions and extended storyline at this point, what I can share is that a few hints have been added to the latest trailer we’ve released that give a few clues as to what you can expect – we’ll have more to share on that in the weeks to come – though I can confirm now that all the Half-Life and Cyberpunk 2077 content introduced to the PC version of Death Stranding will also be available in Death Stranding Director’s Cut.
