As of March 2021. Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding has sold five million copies worldwide across the PlayStation 4 and PC. Originally released on the PS4 on November 8, 2019, the game was later ported to the PC on July 14, 2020.
“With Death Stranding being the first title developed out of Kojima Productions, from a sales perspective, it has performed quite well,” Head of Publishing Jay Boor told GamesIndustry.biz in an interview.
Sony has announced a Director’s Cut scheduled to be released on September 24, 2021. It will feature enhanced gameplay features, new weapons, missions and it will also take advantage of the PlayStation 5’s powerful hardware. Death Stranding has a Social Strand System that enables players to connect with one another by leaving gameplay clues for one another, Boor said the Director’s Cut “will expand on this system and we will be sharing more on that in the weeks to come.”
“In addition, Director’s Cut will also include visual and performance upgrades that take full advantage of the PlayStation 5’s next-gen features, as well as a variety of new content developed from the ground up. We’re introducing new missions and added storylines, more weapons, vehicles and equipment, we’ve even added a racing mode and online leaderboards as well,” he added
“The aim for Director’s Cut was to introduce new content that would further expand the world within Death Stranding while at the same time enhance the core game experience and its features.”
Death Stranding Director’s Cut will launch September 24 on the PS4 and PS5. Those who already own the game on the PS4 can upgrade to the Director’s Cut for $10 on the PS5. A fresh Director’s Cut purchase on the PS5 will cost $49.99 for the Standard Edition and $59.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition.
