Besieged by death's tide at every turn. Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the stranded remnants of the future in his hands, Sam embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time.
What is the mystery of the Death Stranding PC? What will Sam discover on the road ahead? A genre defining gameplay experience holds these answers and more.
Death Stranding on the PC is the best way to play this game. It contains everything the PS4 version brought and it looks far better, as it should if your sporting a nice GPU.
The atmosphere created here; a plot that pulls the player in with compellingly designed and voiced characters; an addictive and highly polished gameplay loop; and a fantastically realised visual world. These are some of the reasons why Death Stranding is such a joy to play. In many ways, this is more than a game. Gameplay here is built to service the atmosphere rather than the other way around and it makes sense that there are some who find this a step too far. It is also why the act of being a deliveryman and keeping BB safe is more of a focus than the passable combat or the, sometimes, fiddly controls. Running like a dream on PC and looking incredible, this was the way Hideo Kojima's vision was meant to be played.
A masterpiece, quite simply.
Hideo Kojima's PlayStation 4 title Death Stranding has landed on PC, bringing with it a new standard of console ports.
The PC version of Death Stranding is clearly the superior version as it's better looking, but also offers more content, a new difficulty setting, and a few Easter eggs to Valve Software's franchises. On the other hand the game's initial drawbacks are still present, like that awful advertisement for an energy drink, or a messy UI.
As thrilling as it is boring, as fantastic as it is mundane, but one thing’s for sure - there’s truly nothing else like it.
Death Stranding is unlike any other AAA title on the market. It doesn't hold your hand or provide clear-cut narrative answers—it's downright confusing, at times. You're either onboard for this wild ride or you're not. Death Stranding is the definition of a divisive title, one with a plodding story and cumbersome menu system, but if you’re looking for something that challenges your perception of blockbuster games, it's certainly worth a play.
