Death Stranding PS Plus PS4 PlayStation 4

Death Stranding is a game all about connecting with other people. To that end, if you play online, you can engage in some interesting asynchronous multiplayer elements, such as leaving items for others to discover, or helping each other out in combat. Of course, you'll need to be a member of PlayStation Plus to access this part of the game, right? Wrong.

Death Stranding PS4 PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle

Recently, UK retailer GAME listed the newly unveiled Death Stranding limited edition PS4 Pro. Looking closely at the box, you'll see a notice about PS Plus in the bottom left corner. It reads: "Paid-for PlayStation Plus subscription required for online multiplayer. Sold separately. Death Stranding does not require PlayStation Plus subscription."

In other words, everyone will be able to go online in Death Stranding and use its multiplayer features, whether you're a Plus member or not. As mentioned, a big part of this game is about connection, so it makes perfect sense that Sony has relaxed the rules for Hideo Kojima's enigmatic action adventure.
