Are you ready for new package delivery in a devastated world? It will be better than ever before! So at least says Hideo Kojima, the director who in Death Stranding: Director’s Cut has finally been given the freedom to get rid of the shackles of producer Hide Kojima and make the game he always wanted to make.
Death Stranding: Director’s Cut arrives on September 24, 2021, exclusively for the PlayStation 5 console. The improved edition will include several add-ons, but let’s get to the technical side of the story first. Death Stranding will have two play modes on the PlayStation 5: Performance Mode with upscaled 4K resolution and 60 frames per second, and Fidelity Mode in native 4K resolution. Both performance modes will have support for ultra-wide monitors, just like the PC version.
The arrival of the game on the PS5 means the implementation of new vibrations on the controller, the introduction of 3D sound, and "almost instant" loading. Unfortunately, it won’t be free for owners of the PlayStation 4 version, but there will be an upgrade option for $ 10, which isn’t that expensive.
There will be additional weapons, equipment, and vehicles. Interface improvements and new online functionalities such as Leaderboards and Friend Play are mentioned. Of course, some new missions, new areas, new enemies, and gameplay elements are waiting for us. Additional content for Half-Life and Cyberpunk 2077 from the PC version will also be included in Director’s Cut.
We’ll be able to upgrade the fighting skill of the main character in Director’s Cut. Then we will be able to try racing on different tracks (?). There will also be new cargo transport tools, such as a catapult or robot that can not only carry the load next to you but also carry you with the load. In case you need a little practice in shooting, a training mode is also introduced.
From Kojima Productions they say that they naturally incorporated all these novelties into the game and that none of it was inserted to be played separately, ie outside the main experience of the game. And the good news is that recorded positions from the PS4 version will be able to be transferred to the Director’s Cut version.
The Death Stranding: Director’s Cut version will cost $ 50.
