Hideo Kojima has been hard at work clipping together a final trailer for Death Stranding Director’s Cut which is due to be released in just a couple of weeks. Well today is the day we get to see that trailer as it’s finally been unleashed onto the internet. Here’s a look at how the PlayStation 5 version of the game is shaping up.

Death Stranding originally released for the PlayStation 4 in 2019, sees Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame take up the role of delivery man Sam, who’s job is to trek across a broken America and build bridges between the remaining settlements. This open world adventure isn’t as simple as setting up a new communications network as Sam regularly encounters “Beached Things”; creatures that are usually invisible to the human eye chasing him to consume his essence. Of course with this being a Kojima game, things aren’t exactly straightforward, which you can see from the trailer above.

The Death Stranding Directors Cut makes use of the upgraded horsepower of the PS5 so graphics are improved, load times are reduced and the DualSense heptics will be implemented. Not only that but game play has been tweaked and refined. Fall damage will be mitigated by a new pair of boots and a ‘delivery catapult’ will help speed up your deliveries. This is on top of the usual upgrades you’d expect to see such as new guns, equipment & missions to take part in.

There’s even a new race track where you can race and customise your own tracks. The package aims to bridge the social elements in the game into the real world. Friend Play and Leaderboards will be implemented so you can stay in touch with progress on your friends list.

All-in all Death Stranding Director’s Cut looks to be more of the game Kojima and his team wanted to release back in 2019 and while the game was a complete experience, the ageing hardware of the PS4 had its limits. We can’t wait to see how the new additions to the game and expanded missions plays out.

Death Stranding Director’s Cut is being published by PlayStation Studios and will release on PS5 on 24th September. If you already have Death Stranding you can pay around £10 to upgrade to the Director’s Cut.
