Haven’t journeyed too far into the original PC release of Death Stranding yet? You may want to consider stepping up to the director’s cut, an upgraded version of Hideo Kojima’s open-world adventure game that is now available to purchase via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Initially released for the PS5 in September 2021, Death Stranding Director’s Cut attempts to improve upon the original experience with all sorts of added content, including new story missions, locations (i.e., the “Ruined Factory”), melee abilities, cosmetic options, and much more.

PC gamers who own a DualSense controller can even enjoy the addition of haptic feedback support, something that will allow players to feel each of Sam Porter’s footsteps as he makes his way across a post-apocalyptic U.S. plagued by mysterious creatures.

Death Stranding Director’s Cut is available for just $9.99 for those who already own the standard version, while new players can grab the full game for $39.99. Support for Intel’s new upscaling technology, XeSS, is expected to be added this summer.
