Death Stranding Update Finally Fixes Major Complaint

Death Stranding gets easier on the eyes with these patch notes.


Death Stranding is one of our best games of 2019 nominees, but there's always room for improvement. One common criticism among many players, including Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai, has been the itty-bitty text size. Kojima Productions promised a fix incoming, and now that patch is available. You can read the full patch notes below.

The 1.07 patch includes general bug fixes, but the major update is to the text size. You can change it using the Options menu in the title screen. Firsthand accounts of the change, like the one below, seem positive on the revision.
