A source has given videocardz.com a yet-to-be-published press release from Intel from CES 2022. It reveals that the Death Stranding Directors Cut that launched on PlayStation 5 last year will be heading to PC in the near future.

In the press release Neil Rally, president of 505 Games who publish the game on PC, is quoted as saying “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Intel for the Death Stranding Director’s Cut edition on PC. Death Stranding has been a hugely popular game with PC players and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experience for Director’s Cut.”

XeSS stands for Xe Super Sampling, an AI driven upscaling technology. The press release also mentions that 505 Games are using the tech along with Codemasters, Techland and Ubisoft, so expect enhancements in the likes of Dying Light 2 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Is Death Stranding Director’s Cut an essential upgrade for PS5 owners? we asked back in September. Well short answer is no, “It’s nuts and it’s still brilliant, but with 60fps and a new gun or two,” I concluded, but if you haven’t played the game on PC then you might as well wait for the super definitive version.

With 505 games handling the PC version of the game that leaves Kojima free to work on his next project, but that many not be a game. Late last year he added a TV and film arm to his company. The new division is headed by Riley Russell who previously spent 28 years at PlayStation. “The new division will be tasked with working with creative and talented professionals in television, music and film, as well as the more familiar games industry,” commented Russell.

“The team has as its charter, the goal of expanding the reach and awareness of the properties now under development at Kojima Productions, and to make them even more a part of our popular culture. Although we are a global organization, the new business development team will be centred in Los Angeles, CA. We are truly excited and looking forward to working with the very best entertainment talent we can, across all of the entertainment industries.”
