DEATH STRANDING Gets a 2019 Release Date
A new Death Stranding trailer has released the game’s release date and it is this year! It will be available on November 8, 2019.
The game is also now up for pre-order, and there are four different versions of the game that can be purchased: the Standard Edition, Special Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and Collector’s Edition, as revealed on the PlayStation Blog.
The Standard Edition ($59.99 USD) comes with the game and a series of golden pre-order bonuses: gold “Sam” sunglasses, gold hat, gold Speed Skeleton (which increases the speed of your in-game movement), and gold Armor Plate (which offers increased damage protection). These match up with the leaked bonus seen earlier today.
For the Special Edition ($69.99 USD), you get all of the Standard Edition bonuses, plus a Steelbook case, a gold “Ludens Mask” sunglasses set obtained through gameplay, the soundtrack, and a behind-the-scenes video.
The Digital Deluxe version ($79.99 USD), only available for download, includes all bonuses mentioned earlier, plus a gold Power Skeleton (which enhances your ability to lift heavy cargo), the gold All-Terrain Skeleton (which enhances your ability to balance on uneven terrain) and a level 2 upgraded version of the gold Armor Plate.
And finally, if you want to spend $199.99 USD, the Collector’s Edition adds a life-sized BB (Bridge Baby) Pod statue, a BRIDGES Cargo Case, and a Ludens Keychain.
The gameplay shown in this latest trailer is the best look we’ve had so far at the game, but it has done small to crack the secret about what you actually do in Death Stranding. Kojima said Death Stranding is all about player collaboration. Today’s footage shows a bit more that could be considered collaboration, and so it still remains to be seen how the game will actually pan out.
