Death Stranding’s Director’s Cut is coming to PC this March, which is great news if you’ve never tackled this offbeat action adventure.
Created by Hideo Kojima, the designer behind the Metal Gear Solid series as well as the cancelled Silent Hills, it casts you as a delivery man roaming a post-apocalyptic America. That’s the short version, at least. The slightly longer version is that, in your quest to rescue the Bionic Woman, you use an unborn baby to avoid ghosts, grow mushrooms with your piss and take orders from a man wearing a Poundland Halloween mask.
Death Stranding originally landed on the PlayStation 4, before getting a PlayStation 5 Director’s Cut last September. This new version adds delivery robots, a cannon which can be used to hurl parcels over great distances, a high-speed racing car and much more. Earlier this month we got wind that Death Stranding Director’s Cut was coming to PC but publishers 505 Games have now confirmed it’ll arrive this March 30th.
That’s not all they’ve revealed, however. There’s a whole community update available on 505’s website, but the important news is that yes, if you already own Death Stranding on PC, you can get the upgraded version for $10, whether you purchased it on Steam or via the Epic Games Store. But, even if you don’t yet own Death Stranding, you can get the Director’s Cut for a low, low price.
Yes, Death Stranding Director’s Cut isn’t out yet on PC, but the vanilla version of the game is heavily discounted on both Steam and the Epic Games Store. It’s 65% off on the Epic Games Store and 70% off on Steam so if you purchase it now and upgrade it yourself on March 30th you’ll have got a bit of a bargain.
Assuming, that is, it’s up your street; we admittedly, weren’t particularly taken with it, concluding that it was “an ambitious game, but it’s also one that’s self-indulgent and overwrought.” Still, you find – as some people have – that its weirdness grows on you.
