On August 23, 2022, those with a PC Game Pass will be able to play Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding. The PC Game Pass version will be the base game and some add-ons. This means that the additional content that came in the Director’s Cut version of the game will be absent. [Thanks, Escapist Magazine!]

Aside from the base game, the PC Game Pass version of Death Stranding will have:
- Chiral Gold / Omnireflector “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses (Color Variant)
- Gold and Silver Power Skeleton
- Gold and Silver All-Terrain Skeleton
- Gold and Silver Armor Plate
Essentially, players will be able to play through the original story while bedazzling Norman Reedus (who “play” protagonist Sam). However, PC Game Pass players may still see Monster Energy drink in Death Stranding. While the reason is unclear, the Director’s Cut has removed all mentions and images of Monster Energy.
Death Stranding came out in 2019, and the Director’s Cut version appeared in 2021 on the PS5. The Director’s Cut version also appeared on Windows PC in 2022. The game follows Sam Porter Bridges, who is a courier delivering supplies to colonies after an apocalyptic event devastated Earth. It is Kojima and Kojima Productions’s first game since they left Konami in 2015.
Death Stranding will be available on PC Game Pass from August 23, 2022. You can also play Death Stranding on the PS4, PS5, and Windows PC. A sequel is in development.
