Earlier this month, we learned about the debut of Photo Mode in Death Stranding for the PC version of the game. Now, we've heard that the Death Stranding Photo Mode PS4 launch is happening much earlier than expected!

Previously, Kojima Productions announced that a "photo mode" would be coming to the game as part of the PC release. If you're not familiar with the term, Photo Mode typically freezes the game's action and allows you to take really cool shots, applying various filters and exploring the area from different geometry. It's been a staple of some newer games (especially those with amazing graphics), so it's no surprise to see it coming to this game.

Unfortunately for current owners, Photo Mode was not yet available for the PlayStation 4 version of the game, although Hideo Kojima did say that it would probably be ported to the console version of the game. Now, we're happy to report that the port will let players take some really cool pictures on the PlayStation 4!

When is the Death Stranding Photo Mode PS4 Release?

So, when are you going to be able to get Photo Mode for Death Stranding on the PS4? Well, the good news is that you won't have to wait long — and by that, I mean it's available right now!

Kojima Productions tweeted the good news earlier today, announcing that PS4 players can now take cool snapshots on the console version of the game.

Of course, PC players are going to have to wait for their version to launch on June 2, 2020. You can add it to your wishlist on Steam or put in a pre-order for $59.99 or your regional equivalent. If you don't yet own the console version, you can get it physically on Amazon at a sweet 50% discount right now!
