505 Games will publish the PC version of the game, it announced on Monday. Additional details about the PC release of Death Stranding will be revealed in the near future, it said.
[UPDATE: 505 has confirmed that Death Stranding PC will release for both Steam and Epic Games Store.]
“We are extremely excited and honored to be working with the supremely talented team at Kojima Productions and to bring Death Stranding to PC gamers around the world,” said 505 Games co-founder and CEO Raffi Galante in a statement.
“Death Stranding will take gamers through a completely original experience that will delight PC gamers everywhere.”
Death Stranding features a cast of high-profile actors including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner and director Guillermo del Toro.
Kojima has described Death Stranding as “a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society”.
He told PlayStation Blog: “It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the ‘Strand’ or connection.
“As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or ‘Strands’ with other players around the globe.
“Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.”
Sony recently announced a limited edition Death Stranding PS4 Pro Bundle featuring a special Death Stranding 1TB console, game and controller for $399.99/£379.99. It’s available to pre-order at Best Buy and Game.
