Not sure yet whether Death Stranding is the type of game for you? You can learn a bit more about it by heading over to our Death Stranding review. In fact, in our review, Brittany Vincent writes, “With that said, Death Stranding isn’t for everyone, but at the same time it’s about everyone. It’s about finding deeper connections that bring us all together and figuring out ways to honor them. I know it won’t resonate with everyone the way that it did me, but it doesn’t need to. It stands alone as one of the most unique titles I’ve ever played, and I feel truly richer for the experience of having played it.”

Now that you know that Death Stranding on PC won’t be an Epic Games Store exclusive, you can prepare for next year’s release by preordering it on your preferred online store. For more help, head back over to our Death Stranding guide.
