In an interview with “GamesIndustry.biz”, Kojima Productions has revealed that its debut game known as “Death Stranding” has sold over 5 million copies on both Playstation 4 and PC.
“With Death Stranding being the first title developed out of Kojima Productions, from a sales perspective, it has performed quite well,” Jay Boor, Head of Publishing says. “As of March 2021, Death Stranding has sold through over five million units worldwide on PlayStation 4 and PC.”
Death Stranding was the first game Hideo Kojima has published after his infamous departure from Konami, bringing to an end his highly acclaimed run with the “Metal Gear” series.
A new version of the game known as “Death Stranding Director’s Cut”, is now announced to be released on September 24th only on Playstation. The new version is set to have new combat mechanics, a brand new fringe range, and most importantly new main missions. The game will also be upgraded and enhanced for the PS5.
“The aim for Director’s Cut was to introduce new content that would further expand the world within Death Stranding while at the same time enhance the core game experience and its features.” Jay Boor elaborated. “Director’s Cut will also include visual and performance upgrades that take full advantage of the PlayStation 5’s next-gen features, as well as a variety of new content developed from the ground up. We’re introducing new missions and added storylines, more weapons, vehicles, and equipment, we’ve even added a racing mode and online leaderboards as well.”
Playstation fans may want to make good use of the new version of the game, as it is rumored that Hideo Kojima’s next game is headed exclusively on Xbox Consoles. Death Stranding’s Director’s Cut is available now for pre-order and is coming your way on September 24th.
