Death Stranding Director's Cut screenshot of the cargo catapult

If you've been holding off on giving Death Stranding a try, now would be a pretty good time to dive in as the Director's Cut has just arrived onto PC. The whole package will set you back $40, while those of you that own the original Death's Stranding can upgrade to the new version for $10.

As for the actual improvements, the Director's Cut brings with it a variety of new equipment to play around with, including things like the colossal cargo catapult and the buddy bot, as well as smoother controls and enhanced melee combat. There's also new missions and storylines to explore, general UI improvements, as well as a whole bunch of new quality-of-life changes and customization options.

What all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can check out through one of the trailers below. Have a gander:

For those of you wondering whether Death Stranding is even worth diving into, that's a bit of a tricky question to answer. Death Stranding is heavily based around exploration, and so the vast majority of your gameplay will be spent running across seemingly infinite stretches of land before anything truly exciting happens.

So if you do decide to give it a try, make sure you're doing so because of the atmosphere and story rather than the sparse action. Despite its fairly large budget and impressive visuals, Death Stranding really does have a lot more in common with walking simulators of old than something like Metal Gear Solid.

Whatever your thoughts on the matter may be, you can learn more about Death's Stranding and the freshly released Director's Cut over at Steam. Enjoy!
