If you think Death Stranding can’t get any weird or weird, the game of Director cut version includes a track. That new feature and many more were announced in PlayStation Play Status Stream today, along with the game’s release date.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut released on September 24. Most of the game’s changes revolve around combat. The game’s early combat mechanics were a point of criticism in early reviews. To fix that, this version includes “upgraded melee” and other improved combat mechanics. It’s not immediately clear how melee is changed in the game, though at one point Sam Bridges takes down enemies, which is brand new. Several new weapons were also added, including the Maser Gun and the mounted machine gun.
To test their combat skills, players will also have access to a shooting range, new battles, and even new story missions.
Perhaps as a response to players driving through its broken American version, Death Stranding Director’s Cut will also have its own track, sponsored by the in-game character Fragile. Players will be able to race through multiple courses, seemingly against the computer.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut will add to the game’s distribution system with a few new add-ons. The update includes a cargo catapult that launches packages, along with a new skeleton and a buddy bot that carries packages. For porters who like to live in the wild, a jump ramp is also being added to the game that allows players to jump through the game’s rocky canyons.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut launches September 24th for PlayStation 5.
