When is the Death Stranding PC release date? Everyone’s having a blast with it over in PlayStation land, but it’s not out on the ol’ personal computer just yet.
There are plenty of reasons to be excited about Death Stranding. The game is Hideo Kojima’s first release since the Metal Gear Solid designer left Konami to create his studio in 2015. Boiled down, the game has you delivering cargo to isolated cities as a means to connect them. The Death Stranding review critical consensus has been largely positive since launch. Some find the repetition of terrain traversal to be quite serene, while others have found it frustrating.
So, if you’re stuck waiting for Death Stranding to come to PC, then read on for a nifty round-up of everything we know. We’ll go over an array of details from the Death Stranding release date and gameplay to story details and other details to do with the Death Stranding ending. We’re still digging through the game ourselves, but we’ll update this guide with information as we get it. To that end, here’s everything we know about Death Stranding on PC.
DEATH STRANDING PC RELEASE DATE
It has been confirmed that Death Stranding is PC bound, and while it’s not exact, the Death Stranding PC release date is summer 2020. We don’t have a more specific Death Stranding release date than that right now, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled. On the bright side, though, Death Stranding is coming to Steam and the Epic Store, so you have your pick of storefronts.
We’ve also got our fingers crossed that we’ll get a more solid Death Stranding PC release date at The Game Awards on 13 December, 2019. With Death Stranding nominated for a few awards and host Geoff Keighley in the game itself, there’s at least a slim chance.
Death Stranding trailer
While Death Stranding’s trailers tend to give little away, they are still worth a watch to pick up on the vibe of the game – they are also peak Kojima, if that’s your sort of thing.
Death Stranding story
As you’ll glean from the trailer above, Death Stranding is confusing, and keeps its cards close to its chest. Basically, you’ll find yourself in remains of post-apocalyptic America – where ruin has been brought about by a cataclysmic event known as Death Stranding.
You’ll find yourself in the walking boots of Sam Porter Bridges, a delivery man who stumbles across the remains of North American cities in a bid to connect them. There’s a supernatural element, too, as spectral apparitions called Beached Things – more commonly known as Death Stranding BTs – make your life more difficult. The BTs are connected to the Death Stranding.
Death Stranding gameplay
Traversal is what you’ll mainly focus on but there are challenges along the way. The weight of your backpack and how it’s distributed matters as it affects your balance. Walk around with an uneven backpack and you’ll be prone to falling over.
There’s also a good chance you’ll stumble across MULEs in Death Stranding, too – a cult of rogue, bandit-like porters who also like to deliver cargo. While that might make them sound like-minded to you, they also tend to steal other people’s cargo so they can deliver it themselves. How you deal with them is up to you as you can sneak past them, tie them up, or just charge in head-on and bludgeon them with an object.
As you connect more cities through the Chiral Network, you’ll gain access to maps of new areas. You’ll also get blueprints which allow you to produce consumable items and structures through your fancy 3D printer. With these items, you’ll be able to tackle tough terrain and get to unexplored areas. You don’t come into contact with other players directly, but you can come across their lost cargo and deliver it for them.
And there you have it, everything we know about Hideo Kojima’s latest game, from the Death Stranding PC release date to some of the finer game details. As ever, we’ll keep our eyes peeled and shall update this accordingly with details as we find them.
