The PS5-exclusive Death Stranding Director’s Cut may be getting a PC release after an unconfirmed press release has seemingly leaked online.
Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding Director’s Cut is reportedly coming to PC according to a leaked press release. Death Stranding Director’s Cut released on PS5 in 2021, making for a more definitive edition of the original 2019 game. The Director’s Cut adds new content, missions, and features including haptic feedback on Sony’s latest console.
Death Stranding is the latest release from famed video game developer Hideo Kojima, and stars Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead as protagonist Sam Bridges. Despite a somewhat mixed reception from fans in 2019, the title has secured itself a dedicated following, and the Director’s Cut edition of the game has been highly praised by many. Speculation on a potential sequel has been rife for some time, fuelled in part by a photo from Kojima which many believe shows Reedus on set with the director. Reedus himself has previously stated Death Stranding 2 is in the works, but Kojima, Sony, and Kojima Productions have yet to formally announce anything.
As spotted by WccFTech, VideoCardz reports that Death Stranding Director’s Cut PC is on the way, citing an unnamed source who allegedly provided the publication with a press release on the game. According to the leak, Death Stranding Director’s Cut for PC will be the first title to support AI-based upscaling technology from Intel’s XeSS, which will “enhance player experiences.” 505 Games, publisher of Death Stranding on PC, is mentioned in the leak, with president Neil Rally reportedly stating the following:
“We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Intel for the Death Stranding Director’s Cut edition on PC. Death Stranding has been a hugely popular game with PC players and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experiences for Director’s Cut.”
The alleged release of Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PC is likely to be a hit with those unable to acquire a PS5 console. The title is currently only available on the Sony platform, meaning PC gamers only have the regular edition of the game, along with some PC improvements and new Half-Life and Cyberpunk 2077 content that was missing from Death Stranding PS4. Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PS5 adds the new Very Hard mode, a firing range, racing, an expanded storyline, and more, all of which would likely be available in the PC version.
At the time of writing, the Death Stranding Director’s Cut PC leak is currently unconfirmed. While it’s possible the news could be false, the release of Death Stranding Director’s Cut on PC makes sense, and continues the trend of PlayStation exclusives also getting a PC launch. Later this month, God of War (2018) will come to PC, and it’s also rumored that Ghost of Tsushima will release on Steam.
