Death Stranding was first released in 2019 on PS4. The game is set in the future when a mysterious event known as the Death Stranding has opened a doorway between the living and the dead.
The definitive version includes the ‘Ruined Factory’ location, a treacherous underground compound packed with fresh dangers. Plus, the game’s protagonist Sam Bridges now has a wealth of new delivery assists: from cargo catapults and ramps to a stabilizer function.
We’re also told that melee combat has been upgraded with enhanced moves such as the drop kick. The new Maser Gun pacifies enemies with electricity. Finding the perfect weapon loadout is now achievable thanks to the new firing range location, while a new racetrack minigame lets you race vehicles.
The ground-breaking experience from legendary game creator Hideo Kojima also features the acting and voice talents of Norman Reedus as Sam Bridges, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, and Lindsay Wagner.
