Kojima personally edited this new trailer. He said in another tweet that the director's cut is not getting a lot of attention or promotion, and he said the final trailer will be "released quietly." Despite his belief that it will fly under the radar, Kojima said he edited the video "with all my 'soul.'"
The Death Stranding director's cut features "a ton of new content and enhanced gameplay features." Fans can look forward to more weapons, equipment, vehicles, modes, and missions, along with additional areas to explore, "expanded storylines," and UI enhancements. A trailer released during Gamescom showed off a number of the new features.
The director's cut launches on September 24. Death Stranding was originally released in November 2019 on PS4 and it sold more than 5 million copies across PS4 and PC.
Kojima's next game after Death Stranding might be an exclusive for Xbox with cloud integration. According to a report, Kojima and Xbox have signed a letter of intent, but it might not be a done deal, and it's early days in any event.
