The PC release of Death Stranding Director's Cut was released just a short time ago today on Steam and the Epic Games Store. You can either purchase a $9.99 (USD) upgrade if you already own the base game, or plunk down $39.99 for the whole shebang if you don't yet already own the game.

This is said to be "Hideo Kojima's definitive vision of his critically-acclaimed and genre-defying epic." The game was developed by Kojima Productions and offers expanded gameplay beyond the core game.

Today's release offers additional storyline, new stealth missions, upgraded combat abilities, new buildable structures, new cosmetic options, and more. A bit more details on some of these new features can be found below.

Death Stranding Director's Cut will also soon support Intel's new Xe Super Sampling scaling technology. Apparently the first Intel Arc GPUs are starting to be released today on mobile devices, so I'm sure we'll hear more about that all soon.

Most notably, DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT now includes the ‘Ruined Factory’ location, a treacherous underground compound packed with fresh dangers, plus Sam now has a wealth of new delivery assists, from cargo catapults and ramps to a stabiliser function. Melee combat has been amped up with enhanced moves such as the drop kick, whilst the new Maser Gun pacifies enemies with electricity. Finding the perfect weapon loadout is now achievable thanks to the new firing range location, whilst vehicles can be raced on the new racetrack minigame. Protagonist Sam Bridges can even ride Buddy Bots to traverse the wastelands with greater ease.
