Death Stranding PS4 owners can upgrade to the PS5 Director’s Cut for £5

Sep 21, 2021

UK pricing confirmed after $10 / €10 upgrade path previously detailed Posted by Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that UK players who own Death Stranding for PS4 will be able to upgrade to the PS5 Director’s Cut for £5. UK upgrade path pricing was announced on Tuesday ahead of the game’s release this Friday, September 24. Sony previously said Death Stranding PS4 owners in the US and Europe would be able to upgrade to the PS5 Death Stranding Director’s Cut Digital Deluxe Edition for $10 / €10 . With the Director’s Cut priced at $49.99 / £44.99, players wanting to play the PS5 version could save money by picking up a cheap PS4 copy and using the upgrade path – the PS4 version currently costs $29.99 / £19.50 on Amazon, for example. Death Stranding Director’s Cut Final Trailer PS4 console save data will be transferable to the PS5 version of the game, Kojima Productions ‘ head of publishing Jay Boor said in July. “We wanted to ensure that players, no matter where they are in their journey, could pick back up relatively in the same area as they left off when playing the PS4 version, while also enabling players who have already completed the game the ability to jump to the areas where new content and equipment can be discovered.” The upcoming PS5 remaster boasts enhanced visuals, fresh missions and several new features not available in the PS4 original. These include new combat mechanics designed to make battling enemies more enjoyable. Melee attacks have been upgraded, a new Maser gun can be acquired, and players can also find mounted machine guns.

New items include evolved stabilisers with thrusters which reduce the impact of landing when jumping from height, while the cargo catapult can launch cargo over long distances. Boss battles can now be revisited and fought again repeatedly, with scores sharable in an online ranking system. Players can compete against each other on a new racing track too.
