Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, an upgrade of the 2019 game for PlayStation 5, is coming soon, Kojima Productions announced on Thursday.
The studio announced the new “enhanced and expanded” version with a lengthy teaser showing the game’s hero, Sam Bridges, figuring out how to equip a box, Metal Gear-style, somewhere in a subterranean level with gun-toting baddies on patrol.
Introduced by Geoff Keighley at the host’s Summer Game Fest 2021. Kojima Productions will have more to announce about Death Stranding: Director’s Cut in the coming weeks, Keighley said.
Death Stranding launched in November 2019 for PlayStation 4. A version for Windows PC launched on Steam in July of last year.
Earlier in the show, Kojima gave a brief interview to Keighley in which he discussed development and new projects — without any specifics — during the pandemic, which is still having a significant effect on daily life in Japan. “I can’t really say specifically,” what’s in store, Kojima said. “It won’t be like the past, it won’t be one step at a time. It’s a drastic change, just like after 9/11.”
