Death Stranding Comes to PC This June With Photo Mode and a Headcrab

Sam is getting some Half-Life goodies.

Kojima Productions' debut project finally has a date for its PC port. Death Stranding will be coming to both the Steam and Epic Games storefronts on June 2, 2020, and will come with a few new features.

Most of the features packed into Death Stranding's PC debut are the norm for console-to-computer ports. Support for higher frame rates and ultrawide monitors are big ones, and the Photo Mode looks like it could be pretty fun to mess around with, especially given Sam's proclivity for making faces. Now, you can climb mountains, build bridges, and crush cans of Monster at blistering frame rates.

But there are also a ton of Half-Life features in this version as well. In the trailer, you can spot the gravity gloves from Half-Life: Alyx, as well as the steam valve thing on the back of Sam's neck and a headcrab hat. This is hopefully not also given to you by a popular late-night host.

Death Stranding was one of the boldest and most perplexing games of 2019, and a fitting project for Hideo Kojima's first solo outing with Kojima Productions. It was confirmed for a PC port last October. Now it looks like gaming rig owners won't have to wait long to trek across a ruined America, delivering packages and taking care of a baby that can sense ghosts.
