Death Stranding PC release date set for June 2 — with a Half-Life crossover

New, 4 comments

Coming to Steam and Epic Games Store

Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding will be released on Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on June 2, publisher 505 Games announced on Monday. The PC edition will launch with a new photo mode, high frame-rate support, and ultra-wide monitor compatability.

Here’s the weird thing: It’s also launching with a Half-Life crossover. There’s not much information on what, exactly, that entails, save for a brief teaser in the Death Stranding PC trailer: Sam Porter Bridges, Death Stranding’s main character played by Norman Reedus, has a red steam valve on his head. Sam can also enjoy wearing a headcrab.

Death Stranding was released on PlayStation 4 on Nov. 8 to critical acclaim — at the 20th annual Game Developers Choice Awards, it’s up for seven awards. (GDC has since been postponed, and it’s unclear how the awards show will proceed.) Much of Death Stranding’s gameplay is centered on Bridges, a glorified delivery person, as he treks across a destroyed version of the United States to reconnect it via a network, something akin to the internet, all while meeting up with a supporting cast that includes some of creator Hideo Kojima’s favorite famous people.
