A few weeks ago the PS5 version of Death Stranding was finally presented, which will be released directly as a Director’s Cut. This expanded implementation of the Kojima hit has now been discussed again at the State of Play – and has now been given a release date.
On yesterday’s edition of State of Play, Sony and Kojima Productions also showed another new trailer for the Director’s Cut of Death Stranding. At the same time, it is now clear when you can slip back into the role of Sam Porter Bridges – played by Walking Dead star Norman Reedus.
The Direc tor’s Cut should then be officially available from September 24, 2021, including as a native PS5 version with a number of technical improvements. Separated from this, the new version of the title also brings other playful innovations with it.
Many improvements affect the battles in the game. Sam gains access to better melee attacks and can use new equipment to stun and kill opponents. In some places there will be new shooting ranges in the future, where Sam can test his weapons. The trailer also promises new fights and creatures, including a kind of flying whale with innumerable teeth.
In addition to the fighting, the core task of Sam Porter Bridges as a supplier is also taken up. Here he gets the new cargo catapult by hand, as well as the Support Skeleton or the Buddy Bot. In short: Sam can rely on a number of new helpers to deliver his packages.
Last but not least, the Director’s Cut will of course also bring new story missions with it. You can see the new trailer mentioned here.
