Death Stranding is a third-person open world action-adventure game developed by Kojima Productions and published by 505 Games. Directed and designed by Hideo Kojima as his next work after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the game features a cast of film and TV actors, including Norman Reedus as the protagonist. Death Stranding is the first Kojima Productions game built on the Decima engine created by Guerrilla Games.

Originally released for PlayStation 4 on November 8, 2019 to generally positive critics reviews and subsequently announced for PC with a release date of June 2, 2020, the date was later moved to be July 14.[1][2] Similarly to its console counterpart, the PC release was met with critical acclaim.

The PC version of the game is available for Windows and distributed through Epic Games Store and Steam, making use of Denuvo Anti-Tamper DRM on both platforms at launch. It features 21:9 ultra-widescreen support, DLSS 2.0, high frame rates and adjustable graphics options, along with a new difficulty and bonus in-game content.[3][4]

Notes

  1. When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1190460/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1190460) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
