Can You Keep Playing Death Stranding After The Ending?

Can you play after the ending of Death Stranding? Or are you done when the credits roll? Here’s what you need to know.

Death Stranding is a thoroughly mind-bending game. Spawned from the brain-pan of Hideo Kojima, this open-world adventure has you reconnecting America by acting as a pan-continental delivery man. It’s mildly disappointing that you can’t just hoof your deliveries over a fence, then shove a tattered card through the letterbox, but Death Stranding is still a lot of fun.

It’s not a short game, though, so when you’ve spent 50+ hours finishing it, you might be not be in the mood to keep playing.


But, if you’re so inclined, you can keep playing Death Stranding after the credits roll. You’ll find yourself back in control of Sam, played by Norman Reedus.

This is supposedly the game’s fifteenth chapter, but really it gives you the opportunity to tool around pseudo-America, finishing up any side quests you might have missed – or just be an absolute idiot if you prefer.

So don’t worry: if you finish the game before you’d had time to go back to complete that optional mission you intended to, all is not lost. You’ll get control of Sam back once the credits have rolled.
