Death Stranding’s PC version, coming in June, brings a photo mode to the game. So far, creator Hideo Kojima is only talking about photo mode capabilities for PC, but the toolkit he showed off in a tweet earlier this morning is rather robust.
The standard array of editing tools — zoom, depth of field, focus, lighting, and the like — are all there; so is the capability to change a character’s facial expressions or remove them from an image entirely. A variety of overlays provide a final touch for your desktop-worthy capture of Sam Porter Bridges’ latest delivery.
These are some examples from the Photo Mode in the PC ver. We will introduce on how to create them in another video later. Me, and some staffs that loves to take photos enjoyed making this Mode! Available, June 2nd.— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) March 4, 2020

Death Stranding on PC, to be published by 505 Games, arrives June 2. In addition to photo mode, the PC version will offer support for ultra-wide monitors and higher frame rates. The game is available on both the Epic Games Store and Steam, where it will have a Half-Life-themed crossover giving Sam some Valve-styled cosmetics.
No mention has been made of photo mode for the PlayStation 4 version of Death Stranding, but it’s not unusual for the PC version of a game to get this kind of capability first, then see it come to console editions with a subsequent title update.
