Death Strand­ing: Direc­tor’s Cut is mak­ing its way to PS. Cre­ator Hideo Koji­ma made an appear­ance on the Sum­mer Game Fest stream and chat­ted about his next project. A trail­er for the Death Strand­ing: Direc­tor’s Cut also debuted, with ele­ments from Met­al Gear clear­ly seen.

The trail­er was cap­tured on a PS5, and showed Sam “Porter” Bridges explor­ing a small stock room, dump­ing out a box of oranges and hid­ing inside just like Sol­id Snake. At the end, a title sequence popped up reveal­ing the Direc­tor’s Cut, fol­lowed by a shot of a PS5 con­sole. Host Geoff Keigh­ley stat­ed that a full reveal is “weeks away” and that the PS5 update will be out soon.

Koji­ma had dis­cussed how COVID-19 impact­ed game devel­op­ment at his stu­dio and teased some details about his next project, before the trail­er was shown. He told Keigh­ley that COVID-19’s real­i­ty felt sim­i­lar to the world of Death Strand­ing, which has caused him to rethink his cre­ative process. Koji­ma said he can’t say what his future cre­ative projects will look like, but he look­ing into new ways of cre­at­ing games.
