Death Stranding Director’s Cut has been rated for PS5

By Dom Peppiatt 22 June 2021 11:06 GMT The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has classified Death Stranding Director’s Cut for PS5 – and only PS5.Back at E3 2021, Kojima Productions confirmed that Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is indeed real and a full reveal for the game is just ‘weeks away’.Now, we’ve seen evidence backing that up, with the ESRB’s classification suggesting the game is close to launching – and maybe coming exclusively to PS5.Usually, if a game is going to arrive on multiple platforms, we’d see that noted in the ESRB listing. With this one, however, that has not been the case; it’s only listed…

Death Stranding’s official PC case needs more BB Boys, if you ask me

Death Stranding‘s been a big hit on PC, judging by publisher 505 Games’ recent financial report, and now Japanese peripherals maker Tsukumo are showing it some love with an official Bridges-themed PC case. The custom case has been designed in conjunction with developer Kojima Productions, and it recently launched in Japan for ¥26,800 (that’s around £186 if you want to import it). It’s a lovely-looking case, capturing the monolithic design of the game’s Bridges buildings down to a tee. But let’s be honest. If there’s going to be an official Death Stranding PC case, why is it not shaped like…

Someone caught a cryptobiote up close in Death Stranding and I am so confused

Death Stranding has quite a robust photo mode and someone has completely taken advantage of it by getting this absurd shot of a cryptobiote. When Sam first encounters Fragile at the beginning of Death Stranding, she pulls out a cryptobiote and chows down. I didn’t think about it much – it’s a strange, floaty bug/land-based marine-looking animal thing, and this is the world of Death Stranding, where nothing really makes sense anyway.So I thought, sure, why wonder what on earth is going on with cryptobiotes when they’re not even close to being the weirdest thing in Death Stranding. But now…

Kojima recently shared a tweet published by the official Kojima Productions Twitter account, which has been posting a list of anecdotes from the veteran game designer titled “Hideo’s musings.” One such musing described some of the odd jobs Kojima used to do in order to earn some money during university.His first part-time job involved filming wedding ceremonies. He reckons that taught him what it was like to be, in his words, a “salary…
