Today, 505 Games and Kojima Productions have revealed that Death Stranding on PC will simultaneously release on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and retail on June 2, 2020.
The release will include some new features, such as a photo mode, a high frame rate, and ultra-wide monitor support in order to provide an "enhanced experience" for PC players. In a weird and quintessentially Kojima manner, there will also be a Half-Life crossover with Death Stranding, shown in this quick trailer:
Developed by Kojima Productions, Death Stranding is one of the more divisive releases in recent years. Alternatively declared a masterpiece or an exercise in futility, it nevertheless has inspired a lot of discussion that PC gamers haven't been able to take part in as of yet. Soon, though, PC players will be able to traverse the open plains of a post-apocalyptic America while wondering why there is approximately eleventy-two hours of cutscenes that could otherwise be explained in a few minutes.
In addition to the regular edition of the title, there will also be cool things for players to unlock. There will be "selections" from a digital art book called The Art of Death Stranding, the Death Stranding digital soundtrack--which also includes bonus unreleased tracks--and in-game items such as a swell hat and a pair of sunglasses, along with Gold and Silver Armor Plate and Power, Speed, and All-Terrain Skeletons. The physical edition (which will release at $69.99) includes all of these aforementioned goodies but also includes a Steelbook slip case and some Steelbook artwork.
Interestingly, the Half-Life crossover content is also coming to the Epic Games Store... marking it the first time that anything Half-Life related has been released on the storefront.
For anyone interested in pre-ordering Death Stranding's PC release, be sure to check out the Steam and Epic Games Store pages. The title will launch on June 2 for $59.99.
