While E3 2020 did not happen this year, there has been plenty of video game news this summer. The news train chugged along this week with Ubisoft Forward, and next up is the next part of Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest with an announcement about Death Stranding.
Hideo Kojima and artist Yoji Shinkawa from Kojima Productions will speak to Keighley on July 13 for a chat about the PC edition, which releases on July 14. Kojima and Shinkawa will have a “special conversation” with Kojima about the game, according to a promo, but no further details were divulged.
Death Stranding was announced for PC earlier this year, after launching exclusively on PS4 in 2019. The port will feature higher frame rates afforded by more powerful PC hardware, ultra-wide monitor support, and a photo mode (which was recently added to the PS4 version). The port also features some crossover content with Half-Life, with Sam Bridges seen wearing a Headcrab in the announcement trailer.
Death Stranding was one of our favorite games of 2019. In our 9/10 Death Stranding review, critic Kallie Plagge praised the game’s themes and its relevance, saying, “It’s positive without ignoring pain; in fact, it argues in both its story and its gameplay that adversity itself is what makes things worth doing and life worth living. It’s a game that requires patience, compassion, and love, and it’s also one we really need right now.”
