The game is heading to Steam, Epic Games Store
The game launched on PS5 on September 24th.
The new version adds “more weapons, equipment and vehicles, a variety of new modes, missions and areas to explore, expanded scenarios and user interface improvements” as well as new online features such as Friend Play and Leaderboards. The PS5 version supports haptic feedback and adaptive trigger resistance of the DualSense controller. People who already have the Playstation Version 4 can get an upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition for $ 10 or € 10 with support for cross-backups.
The original game shipped for the PS4 in November 2019. The game was released on PC via To smoke in July 2020 after a delay from June 2020 due to work-from-home orders due to the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) situation.
Kojima Productions describes the game:
Besieged by the tide of death at every turn, Sam Bridges must brave a world completely transformed by Death Stranding. Carrying the stranded remains of the future in his hands, Sam sets out on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time. What is the mystery of Death Stranding? What will Sam find on the road ahead? A gender-defining play experience contains these answers and more.
Kojima Productions developed the game using the Decima engine from Guerilla Games. The game is an action game and features open world elements with “a certain degree of freedom”. Kojima said the name of the game came from the cetacean stranding phenomenon, where dolphins and whales strand and die. While other games offer “stick”-like elements for gameplay, Death Stranding also offers “ropes” for binding and connecting players to each other.
