This spring, “Death Stranding Director’s Cut” will be released for PC

This spring,

Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PC will make use of Intel’s Xe Super Sampling to supposedly improve performance, graphical fidelity and frame rates. Ultra-wide monitors will also be supported, in case that’s a concern of yours. And as Kojima mentioned above, the game will launch simultaneously on the Epic Game store and Steam. As with the PS5 version, Director’s Cut will come with the same add-ons including new weapons, missions, boss battles and a racing mode.

Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s completely bizarre animated philosophy movie and busywork simulator, announced a director’s cut edition with some added goodies in July, and it was released in September for PlayStation 5. This version will be available to PC gamers in the Spring of 2022, nearly two years after the main game was released on Windows.


  • There’s no exact date yet beyond the general “Spring 2022” window. If you’re looking to scratch the itch of a bleak future where loneliness is only outweighed by tedium, perhaps watch Sion Sono’s The Whispering Star while you wait. To my knowledge Kojima has never claimed the film was an influence on his game (which also revolves around a replaceable, emotionless protagonist essentially working as an Amazon Flex courier) but I wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case.
