PC DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR'S CUT Confirmed

An official press release confirms plans for a PC edition of the DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR'S CUT mentioned this morning. Word is this will arrive in the (northern) spring via both the Epic Games Store and Steam, offering PC enhancements including higher frame rates, a new photo mode, and ultra-wide monitor support. The announcement is quite similar to what was posted this morning, though it does correct the typo in Neil Ralley's name and puts the title in proper eye-scorching all caps:
505 Games, global publisher of the PC version of Hideo Kojima’s genre-defying DEATH STRANDING in partnership with KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS, revealed today at the CES 2022 trade show it will also publish the DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT. DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT on PC will launch simultaneously on both the Epic Games Store and Steam in spring 2022.

DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT is the definitive DEATH STRANDING experience, expanded for PC, and will, for the first time, incorporate Intel’s new Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) graphics technology for an enhanced experience for PC players. XeSS uses machine learning to enable players to explore the unique environment of DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT in high graphical detail along with elevated performance.

Neil Ralley, President of 505 Games said “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Intel for DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT on PC. DEATH STRANDING has been a hugely popular game with PC players and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experiences for DIRECTOR’S CUT.”

DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT on PC includes HIGH FRAME RATE, PHOTO MODE and ULTRA-WIDE MONITOR SUPPORT. DIRECTOR’S CUT also includes cross-over content from Valve Corporation’s HALF-LIFE series and CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077.

Developed by Kojima Productions, DEATH STRANDING was one of the most anticipated projects of the last decade. Starring Norman Reedus as Sam Bridges, the game takes place in the near future, where mysterious explosions have rocked the planet, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With spectral creatures plaguing the landscape, and the planet on the verge of a mass extinction, it’s up to Sam to journey across the ravaged wasteland to save mankind from impending annihilation.

The groundbreaking experience from legendary game creator Hideo Kojima also features the acting and voice talents of Mads Mikkelsen and Léa Seydoux.

A director's cut for film usually means restoring edited content to fit the theatrical viewing time to maximize profits. So does this mean it comes with content that was cut from the game because of time and budget? If not, what's the point of calling it a Director's Cut?

Kojima is renowned for attempting to bridging the gap between cinema and game. Director's Cut is just low-hanging fruit.

they are new. Nothing really significant, but eh, may be worth revisiting

Yeah, the naming is stupid since the first was a "directors cut" but maybe the term did not translate well.

Thanks for a link Jim. Just rather surprised it's not listed on their Steam Page.

Where are you getting all this other stuff?

Those are additions over CONSOLE version of the Director's Edition, not additions over the original. Blame the confusion and lack of details on the bad Steam page.

I got my info from doing research, crazy right? On the very first page of Google results:

"People also ask: What changes death stranding director's cut?
Death Stranding Director's Cut comes with a slew of updates and new content, including but not limited to new weapons, a new vehicle, new ways to deliver cargo, and even a brand new story mission."

Er, no, what? That's not true at all.

There are new weapons, new upgrades and gadgets. Some new missions. There's also new melee attack options, new stuff to build, one new vehicle and a race course. You can now take buddy bots out on missions with you instead of just sending them off to do side quests. Enemy camps have turrets later on so they're more challenging, and you have new missions based around sneaking into their bunker.

Here is what's listed on the Steam Page...
DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT on PC includes HIGH FRAME RATE, PHOTO MODE and ULTRA-WIDE MONITOR SUPPORT. Also includes cross-over content from Valve Corporation’s HALF-LIFE series and CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077. Stay connected with players around the globe with the Social Strand System™.

All copies of the game will also additionally include:
• “Selections From ‘The Art of DEATH STRANDING’” Digital Book (by Titan Books)
• Backpack Patches
• Bridges Special Delivery Team Suit (Gold)
• BB pod customization (Chiral Gold)
• Power Gloves (Gold)
• Bridges Special Delivery Team Suit (Silver)
• BB pod customization (Omnireflector)
• Power Gloves (Silver)

Where are you getting all this other stuff?

It will probably be free for a $10 upgrade fee, like it was for PS owners.

Yay for not being a Epic exclusive. Question is.... since all that's being added content wise is some costumes... is it a free upgrade for people who already own it?

Actually looks like a decent semi-expansion, rather than a lot of DEs that just slap on some new post processing effects, change random things for no good reason, and introduce a slew of new bugs.
