The Death Stranding Director’s Cut will head to PlayStation 5, with the announcement coming during Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Live event.
This news was revealed by the game director, Hideo Kojima, although not entirely clear Director cut would suggest. A short trailer was shown and it made some bold mentions of Solid metal gears, another game by Kojima.
Based on the trailer, this new version of Death Stranding will soon move to PS5, though its release date has yet to be revealed. During the Kickoff Live event, Keighley noted that we’ll learn more about Death Stranding Director’s Cut In short order.
In the trailer, the game’s protagonist Sam Porter Bridges can be seen infiltrating a base, but he stops to interact with a box labeled “fragile”. Bridges then goes inside the box, which is of course related to Metal Gear Solid – the series for which Kojima is famous. It’s unclear if the new game actually borrows elements from Metal Gear Solid or is just a cheeky reference.
As mentioned by Sony says, this updated version will be an “enhanced and expanded adventure” from Kojima Productions. There may also be some new content.
Original Death Stranding came to PS4 in 2019 and was the first game developed by Kojima Productions. The studio was founded by Hideo Kojima after he split from Konami in 2015 after his debut Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. During the Kickoff Live event, Kojima mentioned his next project, but unfortunately did not reveal any information about it.
