While Death Stranding was previously scheduled to hit PC on June 2, PC players will need to wait a short while longer to check out Kojima's latest game. Kojima Productions temporarily closed earlier this year to switch into a work-from-home environment, which has slightly impacted the PC release date for Death Stranding. It's now scheduled to be available on July 14, 2020.

Death Stranding first released on PlayStation 4 back in November 2019 and the PC version is coming with some extra graphical tweaks, including widescreen support and the ability to go for higher frame rates, if your hardware supports it. There's also some PC-only cosmetics, like a Headcrab from the Half-Life series.

Death Stranding takes place in a post-apocalyptic America, where porters have to carry supplies to cut-off groups of survivors. As Sam Porter Bridges, you'll work to reconnect society.
