Death Stranding: Director's Cut Coming September 24, New Trailer And $10 Upgrade Revealed

A new trailer for Death Stranding: Director's Cut debuted during Sony's State of Play, giving a release date and showing off a bunch of new tools for Sam Porter Bridges.


Sony showed a new trailer for Death Stranding: Director's Cut during its State of Play presentation. The video gave a release date for the special edition, September 24, and showed off a wide variety of new tools Sam can use as he makes his way through the wasteland.

The trailer promised new battles and advanced mechanics to deal with these tougher enemies, like improved melee combat and a electrifying master gun. You can also practice your skills at the firing range.

While exploring the world and making your way between apocalyptic settlements, you'll have a few new tools at your disposal. Those include a cargo catapult, support skeleton, buddy bot, and jump ramp. A new fragile circuit appears to be some form of race track for you to test your driving skills. We saw some of the new tools in action, like the cargo catapult which launches your wares far across the map.

Death Stranding: Director's Cut was announced at the Summer Game Fest event. In a developer Q&A video released after the State of Play, Kojima Productions confirmed those who purchased a digital version of Death Stranding for PS4 can upgrade to the Director's Cut digital deluxe version for $10. This is similar to the Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut, which is similarly a Sony exclusive and will cost a premium to upgrade on PS5.
