Death Stranding is getting an expanded Director’s cut for PS5 later this year. Find out all of the new content coming in the expanded version of the game.
Death Stranding was a game like no other. It put players in the shoes of a courier, delivering packages in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Luckily, fans of the series will be able to play an expanded version of the game when the Death Stranding Director’s Cut launches later this year for PS5. Find out all of the new content in the game that we know of so far.
Added Content in Death Stranding Director’s Cut
In case you missed it, Sony announced a Director’s Cut for Ghost of Tsushima. And the expanded version of Death Stranding will work in a similar way.
Firstly, there will be new missions and areas to explore. These will be”carefully woven into the core game experience” and players will discover this new content naturally whilst playing the game.
The Director’s Cut will also feature a Firing Range, more weapons, equipment and vehicles, and a variety of new modes. This includes the Fragile Circuit racing mode – who could have guessed?
There will also be additional online features like Friend Play and Leaderboards as well as some handy UI changes. There are also a number fo PS5 enhancements for the game.
Players who also own the original PS4 game can upgrade to the PS5 Director’s Cut easily. This is very similar to how you can upgrade Ghost of Tsushima to the Director’s Cut too.
Director’s Cut PS5 Enhanced Features
Additionally, there will be a number of improvements to the game that are all thanks to the PS5 and Dualsense controller.
Death Stranding Director’s cut will make the most of the Dualsense’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, as well as the improved 3D audio capabilities of the PS5.
Also, the load times will be near-instant thanks to the PS5’s SSD and players can choose between two graphics settings. Performance Mode with upscaled 4K and up to 60FPS or Fidelity Mode in native 4K.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut Release Date
Death Stranding Director’s Cut will come out on September 24, 2021. This will hopefully fill the gap in a fairly empty slate for Sony at the end of the year.
Meanwhile, insiders have leaked the release date of the PSVR 2. Will VR be the next big thing in gaming?
Also, Sony has been busy acquiring new studios. Returnal developer Housemarque is Sony’s latest studio purchase. This could mean that the 25 first-party PS5 games Sony is working on could increase very soon.
