'Death Stranding' Hits PC in Summer, 2020
Now I’m not yet sold on Hideo Kojima’s newest project, Death Stranding, with the gameplay shown so far leaving me somewhat cold – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t millions of gamers who want to try it out, which makes news of it coming to PC a pretty big positive in terms of audience size.
Now we don’t much about the port, what the PC spec requirements will be, or even a firm date – but we know you won’t have to wait all that long with ‘summer 2020’ as the target.
The great news is that a PC port virtually assures there’s going to be all kinds of super weird ‘Thomas the Train’ or ‘Baby Shark’ mods available for it…
Here’s the press release:
