Death Stranding Game Details

  • Release date: November 8th for PS4, Summer 2020 PC
  • System Requirements: Medium-High
  • Genre: Action game
  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Death Stranding is an action game set in an open world. Hideo Kojima describes the new title as “a completely new type of action game”.

The story follows characters living in isolation where the aim is for the player to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. 

The storyline and gameplay are designed in a way where everything is bound together by strands or connections. 

Playing as Sam Porter Bridges, you will seek to bridge the divides in society, creating new “strands” with other players.

Kojima said: “Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.”

Other than that and the trailers, we really don’t know a whole lot about what the game is actually about. The trailers show some fascinating imagery and promise a storyline unlike others we may have seen.

With big-name voice actors such as Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, there has been a huge amount of buzz surrounding this game. We can’t wait to see what’s in store.

Optimal Hardware Suggestions

As there are no official system requirements for Death Stranding we can’t yet make any informed opinions on what kind of hardware suggestions to offer to get the most of the game. 

Based on some of the predicted requirements, screenshots and cinematic trailers we know that this title will have medium to high system requirements. We’ll likely know more the closer we get to release – we’ll keep you updated as we find out more. 

As with most games, we expect that the minimum system requirements should run the game at least 30 FPS at around 720p, usually on low to medium settings. We hope for a game of this caliber that the recommended requirements should bring us up to 60 FPS on medium to high. 

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend?

Based on the predicted requirements and a bit of speculation on our part, we think you will be safe with the following PC build if you are hoping for ultra settings – with a solid resolution above 1080p with a consistent FPS count above 60 FPS.

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz / AMD Ryzen R5 1600
