It’s hard to believe us PC players have had a port of Hideo Kojima’s haunting walking simulator, Death Stranding, since late 2019, but we are about to get spoiled with a port of the game’s stealthily dropped Death Stranding Director’s Cut!
Unveiled today at Day One of CES 2022, Kojima Productions is partnering with Intel and 505 Games, the team behind 2019’s base game port, to bring the definitive edition PlayStation players got not so long ago. Unique to the PC, Death Stranding Director’s Cut marches forward across the barren-yet-beautiful USA with the power of Intel’s new Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) graphics technology. XeSS’s machine learning further enriches already-stunning graphical fidelity as well as elevating gameplay and cutscene performance.
“We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Intel for Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PC. Death Stranding has been a hugely popular game with PC players and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experiences for DIRECTOR’S CUT.” eagerly exclaims Neil Ralley, President of 505 Games. “Death Stranding has been a hugely popular game with PC players and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experiences for Director’s Cut.” He adds.
In addition to improvements made to Death Stranding‘s already impressive framerate and cutscene stability, Death Stranding Director’s Cut for PC will include a photo mode, ultra-wide display support (bonus!) as well as crossover content from two of last year’s hottest love-to-hate-it titles, Cyberpunk 2077, as well as some extras from the Half-Life series.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut will be delivered via Sam Porter Bridges in the spring of this year… okay, maybe not by Sam personally! But it will be available on both Steam and the Epic Store. Learn more here.
