Clocking in at well over 50 hours for the core campaign quests alone, Death Stranding already offers a meaty romp through the Icelandic-esque wilderness its sandbox provides. But there’s been intense speculation for months now that an extended edition is in the pipeline for both the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, with the rumour resurfacing following last week’s State of Play livestream.
According to ResetEra user Navtra – who previously leaked Final Fantasy XVI’s console exclusivity – the re-release has been “ready and done for a while now”. It’s reported that this updated version will include all-new story content that wasn’t in the original, although it’s unclear whether it will occur in the same locations as the main game or introduce some new environments.
It’d make sense to port the title to the PS5, of course, as it still ranks as one of the higher-profile Sony projects of recent years – despite it also launching on PC last year. We’d be interested in some fresh story beats, as we enjoyed the main game a lot, awarding it a 10/10 in our review a couple of years ago. Is this a title you’d like to revisit?
