We now know exactly what to expect from the director’s cut version of Death Stranding.
In the Sony State of Play live broadcast on Thursday, we got a comprehensive new trailer Death Stranding Director’s Cut Version. The extended version of Hideo Kojima’s game will be available on PS5 on September 24th.
Announced in June, Death Stranding Director’s Cut is a remastered version of the 2019 game, supporting the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers of the DualSense controller. The new version also uses PS5’s SSD to speed up loading time and uses its 3D audio capabilities to provide a more immersive experience.
PS5 players can choose from two picture modes: one is good for performance and aims at 60fps under upgraded 4K, and the other has native 4K-both support HDR. Existing owners of the PS4 version can upgrade to the Director’s Cut Digital Deluxe Edition for $10. The saved file will be transferred between PS4 and PS5.
As for the truly new content in the director’s cut version, you can expect a lot of new content and updated game mechanics. For example, shooting seems to have been greatly expanded, with new weapons and equipment, as well as updates to shooting and melee combat mechanisms. You will also find a shooting range to test all new toys.
There are new missions, new battles and new areas of exploration-expanding the storyline of the game. But perhaps the most exciting new addition is the new delivery method, which now includes a cargo catapult, an independent support frame that follows you, a companion robot, and a jumping ramp that you can build to cross the gap.
And, because it won’t be an open world game with no extra racing mode, Director’s Cut adds this in the form of the Fragile Circuit racing mode. Director’s Cut also made some adjustments to the UI and online features of the game, including a feature called Friend Play that Kojima Productions will introduce in detail later.
