Death Stranding Director’s Cut announced for PC
And just like that, it officially happens; Death Stranding Director’s Cup is coming to PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store in Spring 2022. The official announcement of the PC’s simultaneous launch on both platforms follows reports of a leaked press release announcing the title in the part of Intel’s presentation today at CES 2022, and it appears the leaked press release was 100% accurate.
According to the announcement, Death Stranding Director’s Cup on PC will use Intel’s Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) technology for improved graphics and better performance. What that actually looks like in practice remains to be seen, but it looks like it basically boils down to using machine learning-based technology to reclaim some of the graphics load. More generally, Death Stranding Director’s Cup on PC will offer higher frame rates than the previous version, as well as the new photo mode and support for an ultra-wide monitor.
