Death Stranding Director's Cut is headed to PlayStation 5 later this month (on September 24) and ahead of its launch Hideo Kojima has bought his editing skills to the final trailer for the game. A mix of music, cinematics, and gameplay, it presents the unique look and feel of the game in a way that feels in line with Kojima's vision and love of all things games and cinema.
It's even presented in the more cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio. Check it out.
With previous versions of Death Stranding out in the wild (here's our review from 2019) it's not concerned with spoilers -- adding a somewhat celebratory tone to the trailer. It's very Kojima, and that's cool. That said, it doesn't really explain or give you a better understanding of what the game is actually about so you wouldn't need to add a spoiler disclaimer.
In terms of the Director's Cut additions, the new version features a suite of updates including new vehicles, weapons, delivery systems, a virtual mission feature, and expanded story stuff. Plus optimisations for the additional hardware grunt that comes from running on PS5 hardware.
