Today, 505 Games, global publisher of the PC version of Hideo Kojima’s genre-defying Death Stranding in partnership with Kojima Productions, revealed at the CES 2022 trade show that they will publish the Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PC. It will launch simultaneously on the Epic Games Store and Steam in spring 2022.
The director’s cut is the definitive Death Stranding experience, expanded for PC, and will, for the first time, incorporate Intel’s new Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) graphics technology for an enhanced experience for PC players. XeSS uses machine learning to enable players to explore the unique environment in high graphical detail along with elevated performance.
Neil Ralley, President of 505 Games, said, “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Intel for Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PC. Death Stranding has been a hugely popular game with PC players, and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experiences for the director’s cut.”
The game includes a high frame rate, photo mode, ultra-wide monitor support, and cross-over content from Valve Corporation’s Half Life series and CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077.
Developed by Kojima Productions, Death Stranding was one of the most anticipated projects of the last decade. Starring Norman Reedus as Sam Bridges, the game takes place in the near future, where mysterious explosions have rocked the planet, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With spectral creatures plaguing the landscape, and the planet on the verge of mass extinction, it’s up to Sam to journey across the ravaged wasteland to save mankind from impending annihilation.
The groundbreaking experience from legendary game creator Hideo Kojima also features the acting and voice talents of Mads Mikkelsen and Léa Seydoux.
Players can wish-list Death Stranding Director’s Cut now for PC from Steam.
