PlayStation version of Death Stranding Director's Cut Trailer

Development is in full swing on a sequel to Death Stranding. While we wait for that, this could be the perfect time to visit the hauntingly beautiful open world title starring everyone's favorite crossbow-toting hero from the Walking Dead, Norman Reedus.

A discount for those buying early

The Director's Cut includes new locations to explore, like an underground factor. It expands on the story mission in the original. And it gives you new items that will help with your delivery missions throughout the game.

Those who order early through the App Store will be enjoying a 50 percent discount. So even if you played the original and chose not to revisit the Director's Cut on PlayStation 5, at the price of $20, it could be worth buying the new one. And if you've never played this game before, you're in for a weird, but wonderful adventure!

A little PSA, that while the on-screen controls are fine when gaming on iPhone, particularly with the Pro Max, if you want to keep that real estate open, you'll want a gaming controller for your iPhone. Our favorite is the BackBone one for many reasons which you can learn all about. Just make sure you buy the USC-C version, not the lightning version.
