"Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding launches on Steam & Epic Games Store on June 2, 2020," the tweet reads. "The PC edition features Photo Mode, high frame rate, ultra-wide monitor support & content from Valve’s Half-Life!" You can check out the Half-Life content in the video, which shows Sam wearing a sort of Head Crab hat. Obviously Kojima couldn't resist.
PC users already have the option to pre-purchase Death Stranding from either Steam or the Epic Games Store, which allows you to avail of extra content such as HD wallpapers, in-game omnireflector sunglasses (which will look really cool when you're skulling cans of Monster Energy), and a snazzy silver speed skeleton. If any of that piques your curiosity, you can watch the full new Death Stranding PC release date trailer below.
