You may not be aware but the Death Stranding Game Pass story has now been confirmed. This followed rumors after a profile picture change on the official Twitter account. The story was confirmed by Xbox Wire earlier today.
However it is only coming to PC, so Xbox owners sadly you won’t be playing this on your console. However, it looks like it’s not the Director’s Cut being added but the original standard edition. The Xbox Wire article does not mention anything in regards to that version. As for the launch of the Death Stranding Game Pass addition, it’s coming on 23rd August.
With the announcement, I went back to revisit the game. I played through it on either the PlayStation 4 Pro or the upgraded Directors Cut on PlayStation 5 and it is a fantastic-looking game as well as incredibly designed. For those unaware, it’s an open-world action-adventure game that is described in the announcement post as “genre-defining”. The game is described as.
In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the globe, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With otherworldly creatures plaguing the landscape, and mass extinction imminent, it’s up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation.
