Let me start this article by saying this: I am genuinely surprised by the amount of additional content that Hideo Kojima and his team at Kojima Productions are adding to the Director’s Cut of Death Stranding!
When it was first revealed at Summer Games Fest Opening Night back in June, I was hesitant. Not all Remasters/Re-releases are created equal and to be honest, I wasn’t sure how Kojima Productions would handle it.
Sure, Sony is publishing the game but when it comes down to it, KP is still an independent game studio whose got bills to and mouths to help feed after all. So when I discovered the PS4 to PS5 upgrade path is only $10 for current owners and they get all of the additional content below, The Brah couldn’t be happier!
- Experience environment effects with the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback.
- Get closer to the world of Death Stranding with bespoke adaptive trigger resistance.
- Hear sound effects come to life in 3D Audio (requires compatible headphones).
- Get into the action quickly with the PS5 console’s ultra-fast SSD and near-instant load times.
- Choose from two picture modes – Performance Mode with upscaled 4K and up to 60FPS or Fidelity Mode in native 4K – both with ultra-wide and HDR support**.
- The Half Life DLC content.
- The Cyberpunk 2077 DLC content.
- Cross-save support so you can continue off from where you were on the PS4.
- New story missions.
- An extended storyline.
- New ‘Fragile Circuit’ racing mode.
- New weapons and a firing range to use them at.
The upgrade path works this way: if you own the PS4 version, you can pay $10 and upgrade to the PS5 Digital Deluxe edition with all of the following content above and pictured below! You see what I’m saying? What a deal, Kojima!
For those of you buying new or gotta have that PS5 case, it’ll cost you $49.99, which is sweet deal as well.
Will you be returning to the strange world of Death Stranding or will this be your first visit?
