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.
Coming soon, DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT will also support Intel’s new Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) graphics technology for an unparalleled experience on PC. XeSS uses machine learning for elevated game performance and enables players to explore the unique environment of DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT in staggering graphical detail.
