With pre-loads now live for Death Stranding, it’s time to find out when the game will actually unlock.

Death Stranding officially launches on November 8, but the game doesn’t unlock for everyone at the same time. Instead, those who pre-ordered the digital version on the PlayStation Store will have to wait for their regional countdown to end.

Unfortunately, as is often the case with PS4 digital launches, the PlayStation Store isn’t always forthcoming with launch times for the different regions. But, thanks to those who have already pre-ordered the game digitally, we know exactly when we’ll be able to start playing.

Read on below for the Death Stranding launch times across the world:

  • New Zealand: 12am NZDT on Friday, November 8.
  • Pacific US: 9pm PT on Thursday, November 7.
  • Eastern US: 12am ET on Friday, November 8.
  • UK: 12am GMT on Friday, November 8.
