Death Stranding News: A NEW VERSION OF THE KOJIMA GAME
During the last Summer Game Fest, Hideo Kojima let us know that his studio was working on Death Stranding Director’s cut. A new version of the game starring Norman Reedus, which would arrive in the near future on the PS5.
Now, thanks to the most recent State of Play on PlayStation we had the opportunity to see this new version of Death Stranding and the new gameplay elements that will be added, such as a new catapult and new story missions. In addition to that they gave us their arrival date, which is September 24, 2021.
YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY TO PLAY DEATH STRANDING ON PS5
Following the announcement, Kojima Productions released a Q&A video on Death Stranding Director’s Cut. It was here that they revealed that the cost of switching to this version, if you already have the PS4 version, will be $ 10. A price that is not very high when compared to the cost of the new Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut.
The price of this Death Stranding upgrade would be almost equal to that of a DLC. From what we saw in the State of Play preview, there are some gameplay improvements and new tools to help you deliver your charge. We don’t know much about the new story missions, to say if they will be worth it.
Although the cost is not so great. Anyway, the fact that they charge it seems to show one of the fears that fans have about these ‘director’s cuts’. One Twitter user talked about how this could be the new industry standard. Take out these versions to justify taking money again from a game that the user already has.
Also, the fact that this version of Death Stranding has new story missions makes us wonder the benefit that those who bought it first had. Perhaps this means that from now on, users prefer to wait for a subsequent version of the game instead of being the first to buy it.
The original Death Stranding arrived on the consoles, PlayStation 4, on November 8, 2019. Although it was generally well received, there were also some opinions that it was just a walking simulator, that its story did not make sense and that it was a very slow game. Apparently, despite these, we will have an improved version. Do you think the upgrade is worth paying for?
