They’re nice logos, at the very least. Hideo Kojima just can’t seem to stop teasing his next game, whatever it might be, this time showing off some logos which… well, they look nice, I guess! At this point I think we all get the deal with Kojima. He’s a bit of a showman, he likes to do things in a way most other people won’t, like pretending his eventually-cancelled Silent Hill game was made by an indie developer. This time, with his next, untitled game, he’s been posting some teasers, like his reveal that Elle Fanning will be in it….

Yep, Death Stranding is coming to PC Game Pass

Earlier this week, the official Game Pass Twitter account was playing silly buggers with their profile pic, stating that “sometimes we just like a good landscape picture”. Immediately, internet sleuths deduced that the landscape in question looked suspiciously like Death Stranding, leading many to believe it was a teaser for Kojima’s hiking postal sim appearing on the subscription service. And yep, they were right on the money, with confirmation arriving today that the BB Boys will be pulling into Game Pass next week, on August 23rd. Read more

Death Stranding Director’s Cut is stranger, weirder, and the best version of Kojima’s hiking postal sim

It’s a strange thing, returning to the world of Death Stranding after more than a year away. Having done that classic thing of rinsing almost every last delivery out of it before finally strapping myself in for its rollercoaster ending back in 2020, there hasn’t been much reason to return to my precious, daft BB Boys in the intervening months – not even its Cyberpunk 2077 crossover was enough to tempt me back. At long last, though, I have cause to load up the BB train again. Death Stranding Director’s Cut arrives on Steam and the Epic Games Store today,…
