The final trailer for the Death Stranding director’s cut was personally edited by Hideo Kojima himself, and it will premiere on September 8th.
Its release time is rather strange–12:00 a.m. PT/ 3:00 a.m. ET/ 8 a.m. BST–and can be seen on the official Kojima Productions YouTube channel. Kojima asked people to “please watch it with a sound environment if possible.”
Kojima previously talked about how the Death Stranding director’s cut is not getting a lot of attention or promotion. He mentioned this last trailer will be released quietly; since the trailer is launching later into the night, quiet it will be.
Despite this, Kojima said he edited the video “with all my ‘soul.’ ”
The release of the new Death Stranding trailer comes just one day before Sony’s next big showcase, which will happen on September 9th.
Death Stranding’s Director’s Cut features “a ton of new content and enhanced gameplay features.” This includes more weapons, equipment, vehicles, modes, and missions, as well as additional areas to explore, “expanded storylines,” and UI enhancements.
The director’s cut launches on September 24th for PS5. Death Stranding originally released back in 2019 on PS4 and it sold more than 5 million copies across PS4 and PC.
