Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is now available to purchase on both Steam and the Epic Games Store. In our review of the Director’s Cut, we stated, “All in all, Director’s Cut doesn’t add a ton, but it didn’t have to. Death Stranding was already one of the most interesting games out there, and what’s new here simply fills a few niches to make a more complete experience.” While our original review stated, “Death Stranding is a story of rebuilding America by connecting people far and wide. Stealth, exploration, combat, and inventory management are all necessary in order to succeed. With a fantastic cast, incredible set pieces, an engaging story, and Kojima’s brand of incredibly enjoyable crazy, you won’t want to put your controller down.” You can read more below:
