Death Stranding: Director’s Cut will expand its social component
In the same interview, Jay Boor recalled that the Social Strand system is “the main component” of the video game, “a unique feature” that uses asynchronous multiplayer “to connect players with other users from around the world through ingame actions ”. In this way, the “Director’s Cut will expand this system”. Even so, he has not specified the changes, since they will do so “in the coming weeks.”
As expected, the PS5 version will improve graphics and performance, but will also introduce unreleased content now developed from scratch. “We are going to implement new missions and story lines, more weapons, vehicles and equipment.” The goal of the Director’s Cut is to expand the world and enhance the experience.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut will be available on September 24. Those who have the title on PS4 will be able to update for approximately 10 euros to receive all the improvements and content additions. It will also be sold as a standalone product, both in physical and digital formats.
