Two Resident Evil titles and Assassin's Creed Mirage, too
In arguably a dazzling demonstration of the new Apple iPhone 15 Pro’s raw horsepower, the PS5 and PS4 console title Death Stranding Director’s Cut is coming natively to the device. No, that’s not a typing error: the entirety of Kojima Productions’ seminal hiking sim will be available...
Well, we suppose this was inevitable, wasn’t it? PS Studios and Kojima Productions have announced a documentary film named Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds, which promises to take you “on a journey into the creative mind of the most iconic video game creator in the world”. The film appears to revolve around the establishment...
Not bad for an independent studio
Kojima Productions has announced an impressive milestone on the third anniversary of the release of Death Stranding, which, along with Death Stranding Director's Cut, has seen 10 million players step into the battered boots of protagonist Sam Porter Bridges. Death Stranding was first launched on PlayStation 4 on...
In another bizarre twist, the Sony owned Death Stranding looks poised to be added to the PC Game Pass catalogue. It wouldn’t be the first PlayStation funded project to join Microsoft’s subscription service – actually, it’d be the third following the two most recent MLB The Show titles – but it’s certainly strange to see the Japanese...

Hope you like hiking, too

Instead, 505 Games will publish it on Steam and Epic...
PS5 console exclusive making the trek

It's been roughly two years since the release of the original Death Stranding, and Hideo Kojima's mad game about dead sea creatures and all that is still startlingly unique. In fact, the only game like Death Stranding is Death Stranding Director's Cut — the newly launched PlayStation 5 re-release that includes additional content, like...
Less than expected
When Death Stranding Director's Cut confirmed its PlayStation 4 to PS5 upgrade path would cost $10, it was sort of assumed the price would carry over to other territories. After all, Sony charges the same amount for its PS5 titles in both the UK and the US on the PS Store despite the currency difference. It turns out, however, the...

If Death Stranding Director's Cut is your very first time playing the game, you may want to skip viewing the launch trailer embedded above, as atmospheric and mysterious as it is.
