505 Games will publish the PC version of Death Stranding on Steam and the Epic Games Store, and pre-orders are open now.
In case you hadn’t noticed, Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding is out now today on PlayStation 4. As you might expect, the game has been met by a gamut of reactions, ranging from the wildly appreciative to the ridiculously ridiculing.
Death Stranding is a hiking sim, bridge-building sim, social network, ad network and stealth action game that is not as wild as Kojima would have us believe, but is still intriguingly experimental for a major AAA game.
Death Stranding is also heading to PC with a little help from 505 Games, and the publisher has announced that the game is now available to pre-order from both Steam and the Epic Game Store.
The PC version has a recommended retail price of £54.99/$59.99. An exact release date hasn’t been confirmed, but it’s scheduled to arrive in summer 2020.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
