Death Stranding PC launch trailer reveals gorgeous new look and new content

Take a look at the new PC version of Death Stranding in this brief but exhilarating trailer with nods to new content from Valve as well.


The wait is over for anyone who's yet to have played Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding. It's finally coming to PC this week, by way of publisher 505 Games and Kojima Productions.

The PC launch trailer gathers up some great-looking footage that shows off what you'll be getting into as Sam Bridges, working to reconnect the remains of our fractured world in the future. The game, starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, and a smattering of other celebrities, is a memorable journey that's quite unlike anything else you've ever experienced.

The PC version of Death Stranding adds a higher frame rate option, ultra wide monitor support, and special content from Valve's Half-Life, including face huggers. So even if you finished the game on PS4, it's worth revisiting for these goodies alone. 

Previously, I reviewed Death Stranding and gave it a 9 out of 10. Here's what I thought:

"To me, Death Stranding feels like being free. Free of the constraints developers place on themselves – they can’t do this, they can’t do that – and the boxes we place ourselves in. As such, I hold it in such high regard after completing the lengthy, moving journey that I find myself wanting to speak less and less about it so as not to ruin the magic. It’s simple to explain why you dislike something, but nigh-impossible to capture why something moves you in such a way that your eyes well up now after hearing any of Low Roar’s discography."

Death Stranding will be available for PC players via Steam and the Epic Games Store on July 14.
