Death Stranding: Director’s Cut launches on September 24, and ahead of that, review scores for the re-release have been posted online. We’re rounding up review scores and excerpts here to help you understand if the PlayStation 5 game is worth your time and money.
The Director’s Cut is described as the “definitive” version of Death Stranding, which was originally released in 2019 on PlayStation 4. The game has been “remastered and expanded” for PS5, and the new edition comes with new content like additional weapons, equipment, and vehicles. There are also new storylines and missions, along with new modes like racing.
The game also makes use of the PS5’s DualSense controller for haptic feedback and trigger resistance, while there is 3D audio as well for people who have supported headphones. The load times are now “near-instant,” thanks to the PS5’s SSD, while there are two graphics modes. Performance Mode features scaled 4K images and up to 60fps, while Fidelity Mode features native 4K.
