Death Stranding Director’s Cut has been officially announced and it’s headed to PlayStation 5 very soon via courier.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut was announced at the Summer Games Fest Kickoff Live event hosted by Geoff Keighley.
Reports of the Death Stranding Director’s Cut surfaced earlier in the year claiming that it will release with brand new content, as well as arriving on both PS4 and PS5.
A couple of months later, new rumours made the rounds that the Death Stranding Director’s Cut was almost ready to be released.
Paying homage to Metal Gear Solid!
The gameplay trailer was inspired by Hideo Kojima’s iconic video game series, Metal Gear Solid. During the opening moments of the gameplay, we saw protagonist Sam Porter Bridges enter a warehouse of patrolling guards.
The scene gave me vibes of the opening moments from 1998s MGS when Snake emerged from the water entering a small warehouse before boarding an elevator.
Continuing with the homage to the Metal Gear Solid series, Sam, played by The Walking Dead star Normal Reedus, even considers using the iconic cardboard box evade the guards.
The warehouse scene also confirmed that the Director’s Cut will come with new content. However, no details were revealed as to how this new content will link into the main story.
Thankfully, when asked, legendary developer Kojima confirmed to Geoff Keighley that Death Stranding Director’s Cut will be releasing “soon” and a full reveal is “just weeks away”. We can’t wait!
Will Death Stranding Director’s Cut come to PS4 and PS5?
Along with the new content, it’s also safe to assume that the PS5 version of Death Stranding will feature improved visuals and performance.
Sadly, however, judging by the end of the trailer, the Director’s Cut looks to be skipping the PS4 and will only release on PS5. Though I’m sure we’ll have official confirmation in the coming weeks.
