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.
