This past July, Hideo Kojima’s animated philosophical movie and fully busy simulator, death strand, announced a director’s release with some extra goodies, which was dropped for PlayStation 5 in September. PC gamers will now get to try this release in the spring of 2022, roughly two years after porting the base game to Windows.
Death Stranding exit cut On a PC, you’ll take advantage of Intel’s Xe Super Sampling technology to supposedly improve performance, graphic fidelity, and frame rates. Ultra-wide screens will also be supported, in case that’s a concern of you. And as Kojima mentioned above, the game will launch simultaneously on the Epic Game Store and Steam. As with the PS5 version, Director’s Cut will come with the same add-ons including new weapons, quests, boss battles, and a racing mode.
There is no set date yet beyond the public “Spring 2022” window. If you’re looking to scratch the itch of a bleak future where loneliness is only outweighed by boredom, then perhaps watch Seon Sonu whispering star while you wait. As far as I know, Kojima has never claimed that the movie had an impact on his game (which also revolves around a heartless, replaceable protagonist who essentially acts as an Amazon Flex courier) but I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case.
