Since being separated from the Metal Gear series and Konami in 2015, Hideo Kojima is finally here for the first time with Death Stranding, the best-kept secret by the company until its launch. A lot of fans have been left amazed. It is basically released on PS4 by Sony. But it is also going to launch for PC next summer. Now it is available for pre-order on the Epic Games Store and Steam.
There were also speculations that the Death Stranding PC version is launching soon in 2020, but the question was on which store. It is now cleared that the Death Stranding will be released on both Steam and Epic Games Store for PC at the same time. Along with it, the base price of pre-orders is $60/£54.99 on each store.
We partly expected Death Stranding to release on Epic Games Store, as 505’s last title Control was exclusive at Epic Games Store. But the availability at Steam is a new change.
Death Stranding is basically not easy to absorb for everyone. It consists of a lot of intense threads, corny moments, silly names, and heavy exposition on its plot with a very simple message. It comes to a lot clear in the mundane moments of the game when you can find a ladder which is desperately needed behind a player.
You can also get a ladder by getting a letter appreciating your efforts by NPC. In both its gameplay and story, it argues that adversity makes things that are worth to do. In short, this game needs compassion, patience, and love. Of course, it is the one you need now.
With the launch date is yet to be announced, the pre-order bonuses might be available here for the Death Stranding PC version. But you can still have the special editions for $70 along with $200 for Collector edition, which comes with some physical accessories.
The pre-order bonuses for Death Stranding were usually gold versions of items to secure a copy before November 8. You can get those bonuses in-game using other ways, apart from a PS4 theme and some PSN avatars.
If you could do so before the launch, you can get Chibi Ludens PSN by preordering the game on PS4 and dynamic theme for PS4 as pre-order bonuses for PC. You can also get gold versions of several in-game items with a pre-order. However, these items are unlockable with gameplay –
The Gold Hat
- Gold “Sam” sunglasses
- Gold Armor Plate (protects Sam against any kind of damage)
- And the Gold Speed Skeleton (boosts movement speed of Sam once equipped)
It is available with the base game in the steel book along with other pre-order bonuses. You will also get a gold version of the album and Ludens Mask sunglasses, which have a digital download as well as making or behind-the-scene footage. You can get it for $70 on Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and GameStop.
Standard Edition (PS4)
It has simply the base game, along with the pre-order bonuses. It is not confirmed yet as to whether those bonuses would come with Epic Games Store and Steam versions. You can get it for $60 at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, PlayStation Store and Wal-Mart.
