Death Stranding by Kojima Productions will be available on Game Pass for PC starting August 23, according to 505 Games.
The original version of Hideo Kojima’s widely regarded and genre-defying epic “falls into the Microsoft ecosystem for the first time, available to registered viewers on the PC version of Xbox Game Pass,” according to a press release from 505 Games. .

“The original version”, which implies that the Game Pass edition does not include the enhancements and changes made by Kojima Productions in the Death Stranding Director’s Cut, is the critical term in the line mentioned above. New plot tasks, weapons, delivery tools and combat techniques are among them.
This may be because Kojima Productions and Sony have already signed licensing agreements. Although the upgrades were made available on Steam in March this year, it’s possible that an established console exclusivity agreement – of the type suggested by Microsoft as a “blocking fee” – is preventing the upgrade from being released on the Microsoft platform.

Director’s Cut launched on PS4 and PS5 in September 2021. Another possibility is that Kojima Productions doesn’t want to make all aspects of Death Stranding available to Game Pass subscribers.
In any case, there are plenty of activities in the basic version of Death Stranding. Kojima Productions’ epic video game, in which you take control of post-apocalyptic delivery man Sam Porter Bridges, is quite mechanically sophisticated and has a vast scope.

In his review of the game, former Gamer student Andy Kelly said that while the story was a little over the top, he otherwise enjoyed it and that “any worries I have about it are finally allayed. by the majesty to travel over this wide and rocky terrain”.
