Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, first introduced at the Summer Game Fest, showed a new trailer at Sony’s State of Play, featuring all the game’s new changes and features. This version is much more than a simple remaster of the latest Hideo Kojima game, and we will discuss all the new content that this version brings with it.
The most important new feature of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut are the new story areas and stages. It seems that these story contents are not part of the main story, but additional parts that are carefully placed in the game world. Not much of the story behind this content is available, but it seems that the early models of BBs and their mothers were at the top of them. According to the developers, these steps are not deleted content and were created entirely after the release of the original game. It has also been confirmed that almost an hour of new music was created by the game’s composer, Ludwig Forsell.
Other new features include a racing car mode and a shooting range. At least two new weapons have been approved: a Maser Gun with which to capture enemy power, and a machine gun to be planted on the ground. New equipment has been added, such as a catapult for throwing cargo, a new skeleton, the use of Buddy Bots to move around the map, and ramps for jumping with cars and motorcycles.
Death Stranding: Director’s Cut also includes some items and vehicles that were left unused in the main game. The game’s face-to-face battles have been improved, the user interface includes more details, and online features such as Friend Play and Leaderboard have been added to the game. Finally, the content of Half-Life and Cyberpunk 2077, which were exclusive to the PC version of the game, will also be present in this version, along with a very Hard level.
Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is a remaster of the PlayStation 4 version, and along with new content, it improves the graphics and performance of the game. It offers 60 frames per second performance mode and upgraded 4K resolution, while the graphics mode delivers local resolution to 4K. Both modes include HDR support and ultraviolet resolutions. Game loads have been reduced to almost zero thanks to the PlayStation 5 SSD, and dual-sounding features such as Heptic Feedback, Adaptive Triggers and 3D sound will also be present.
The standard version of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut will retail for $ 50, and a digital version of Deluxe will be available for $ 60. The deluxe version, in addition to the deluxe content of the original game, will include several new colors for power clothing and gloves, more personalization features for the BB tank and backpack, digital artbook, soundtrack and a few avatars.
Owners of all versions of the PlayStation 4 game can get the digital version of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut for $ 10. Owners of the physical version of the game should put the disc in the console to experience the improved version and play it after downloading the improved version. Fortunately, Death Stranding: Director’s Cut has made it possible to transfer a save of PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5.
Death Stranding: Director’s Cut will be released on September 24 or October 2 for the PlayStation 5. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
