Kojima Productions developed this apocalypse survival game in 2019. It was the company’s first release following their split from Konami in 2015. Alongside some incredible graphics, the game has a star-studded cast. The cast includes actors such as Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Troy Baker, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Lindsay Wagner.

Death Stranding follows Sam Bridges, a porter for a company known as BRIDGES. As the protagonist, the player must deliver supplies to isolated areas. You are then graded based on the delivery and its efficiency and awarded with the ability to improve your character’s statistics.

What improvements does the Death Stranding Directors Cut feature?

The Directors Cut of the game does not only include better visuals and gameplay but also introduces tons of new features. Firstly, there are new missions for players to complete and storylines for them to explore.

Furthermore, there are new weapons for players to test out. The maser gun shoots electric currents at your enemies rendering them useless. Players can also place mounted machine guns as a form of defense against enemies. The entire melee system has also been enhanced to offer a more fluid and realistic combat system.

This Directors Cut version of the game will also make the most of the PS5‘s hardware. As a result, Death Stranding Director’s Cut will support haptic feedback and adaptive trigger resistance from the DualSense controller, 3D Audio, and near-instant load times. Players can also choose between the Performance Mode, which upscales to 4K and targets 60FPS, and the native 4K Fidelity Mode.

Players who already own the PS4 version of the game can upgrade to the next-gen version for an additional $10. This is quite a reasonable price given the sheer array of improvements made. Will you play Death Stranding on the PS5? Let us know in the comments down below.
