Death Stranding: Director's Cut is officially in development, the developers announced this in a blog post. It is reported that the game will be released on PS5 on September 24 this year.
Death Stranding is an open-world adventure game that tells the story of a post-apocalyptic future. The release took place last year, and now the game has become unexpectedly relevant in the current realities due to the theme of alienation and isolation. In June of this year, the developers announced a director's cut of the game for PS5, announcing that this version will be "expanded and improved for the next generation console." In the trailer, which was released earlier, Kojima Productions showed improved graphics and gameplay, as well as the main characters, played by the star cast.
The developers offer you to take the role of the main character, Sam Bridges, in the struggle for the future of America and all its inhabitants. Improvements awaiting you on PS5 include new weapons, new missions, and improved locations. In addition, new features will be including co-op play with friends and a board of achievements. "New content isn't just added - it's built from scratch," the developers note. According to Kojima Productions, they developed the director's cut from the beginning to make new content more embedded in the story. Interestingly, hints for updates can be found in the trailer, if you watched it carefully enough.
The developers emphasized that you will be able to transfer your progress from the base game on PS4 to the extended edition on PS5. If you already own Death Stranding, you can update your game for $10.
