Now we know exactly what to expect from the director of Death Stranding.
During Thursday ‘s live broadcast of Sony State of Play, we received a new comprehensive trailer for Director Strand Stranding’s cut. The expanded version of Hideo Kojima is coming to PS5 on September 24.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut, announced in June, is a remastered version of the game from 2019, which comes with support for haptic feedback from the DualSense driver and adaptive triggers. The new version also uses the PS5 SSD to speed up loading time, as well as its 3D sound capabilities for an immersive experience.
PS5 gamers will be able to choose from two picture modes: one that prioritizes performance, targets 60 frames per second at upscaled 4K, and the other with native 4K – and both support HDR. Existing PS4 owners can upgrade to Director’s Cut Digital Deluxe Edition for $ 10. Save files are transferred between PS4 and PS5.
As for what’s really new in Director’s Cut, you can expect a lot of new content and updated game mechanics. For example, the appearance of shooting was greatly expanded with new weapons and equipment, as well as an update on the mechanics of shooting and close combat. You will also find a shooting range to try out all the new toys.
There are new missions, new battles and new areas to explore – expanding the storylines of the game. But perhaps the most interesting additions are the new delivery methods, which now include a cargo catapult, an independent support skeleton that follows you, a robot friend, and jump ramps that you can build to bridge the gaps.
And because it wouldn’t be an open world game without extra racing, Director’s Cut adds just that in the form of Fragile Circuit racing. Director’s Cut also brings several enhancements to the game’s user interface and online features, including a feature called Friend Play, which Kojima Productions will detail later.
