Sony will “explore” bringing more exclusives to PC

Earlier this year, Alice0 mused that it would be weird if Sony didn't bring more exclusives to PC and by golly it looks like they were listening to her specifically because now they're having a proper think about it. Sony now say they will "explore" bringing more games by Sony-owned studios to PC players.

Feature: One for the road

I’m photographing my Death Stranding road trip with BB, and loving every second

It's been over two weeks since Kojima's mad courier sim Death Stranding came out on PC, but during that time I've only just about managed to make it across Lake Knot to the game's second big area. It didn't help that, once I'd arrived at the big port town and finished showering its first boss monster with a torrent of poop grenades, I decided to…

Feature: Sight for sore eyes

The eyes have it – I can’t get enough of Death Stranding’s immaculate faces

I'm not afraid to say that I have absolutely no idea about what's going on in Death Stranding after a couple of hours with it. Something about a big apocalypse, some strands, a man who has the face of Guillermo Del Toro but not his voice keeps trying to me to kill a baby in a jar, and apparently my mum is the president of…

Feature: Ultrawide load

Even Death Stranding’s ultrawide resolutions find a way to be weird

Death Stranding has had several lovely upgrades for its PC release, including uncapped frame rates, 4K resolution support and Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 tech. But the one I've been most looking forward to trying out is its 21:9 ultrawide monitor support. After all, Death Stranding is effectively Beautiful Landscape: The Game in addition to being a surprisingly engrossing postman sim, and seeing its huge, expansive vistas…

Death Stranding’s first PC patch addresses bugs and stability

Bridge man Sam Stranding or Die Bridgeman or whatever his name is has been trekking across post-apocalyptic America now that Death Stranding is out on PC. You'll have an update queued up before you can get back to delivery mode though, as 505 Games have released the first quick patch for strand simulator before the weekend. It's a collection of small bug fixes for better…

Feature: Gravitas notwithStranding

I like weird storytelling, but even I think Death Stranding is a bit much

I am big into weird stuff. My tastes lean towards being surprised over being moved, and my favourite games and films and books reflect that. Give me wild fantastical sci-fi first, interesting character arcs second. So far Death Stranding has given me a very quiet yet very grumpy man while frontloading some of the most delightful nonsense I've seen in videogames. I am here for…

Feature: One Off The List

The 7 best couriers in PC games

Death Stranding, the walking simulator about the sad Deliveroo man, is finally out on PC, allowing thousands of keyboard clackers to decode the complex metaphors embedded within such characters as “Mama”, a woman with a baby, and “Heartman”, a man with a pacemaker, played here by an aging and tired Danny Wallace. Look beyond the sub-textual nuance of such masterful creations, however, and you will…

Feature: The Where's Wally of graphics effects

Spot the difference between Death Stranding and its DLSS 2.0 tech

When I first tested Death Stranding's DLSS 2.0 tech in the run-up to the game's release, I wasn't able to show you what it actually looked like. I could tell you that switching it on would turn any RTX card into a 4K 60fps machine, but not how its clever, AI-driven upscaling wizardry affected the in-game visuals. Well, now I can, and as you'll soon…

Death Stranding Half-Life cube locations: how to get the gravity glove

The PC version of Death Stranding is finally here. To make up for the long wait, there is some Half-Life stuff that has been added to the game. To get the items, you'll need to find companion cubes with clues to their locations hidden in emails.While the most intriguing inclusion is the gravity glove thanks to its ability to drag in items from a short…

Death Stranding tells the worst elements of open world games to take a hike

Having bounced off the opening exposition of Death Stranding on PS4 last November I was not anticipating falling in love with its craggy exploration on PC. And yet here I am, some 40 hours under my belt (along with a pair of spare boots and 30ft of climbing rope) and readily committed to 40 hours more. Underneath that initial hit of lore, acronyms and holographic…

Death Stranding comes packed with a swathe of upgrades for PC, including 4K resolutions, unlocked frame rates, ultrawide monitor support, special Half-Life missions and, of course, a great big photo mode…

Death Stranding is now out on PC

Following its PlayStation debut last year, Death Stranding is now out on PC too. This is the latest game from Metal Gear Solid maestro Hideo Kojima and his studio Kojima Productions, and stars Norman Reedus as a post-apocalyptic postman traversing the wastes of the USA. Something's spooky has happened, see, so Norm needs a baby in a bottle to help protect himself from extradimensional ghosties.…

Get Death Stranding for free when you buy an Nvidia RTX graphics card

Death Stranding isn't going to be a particularly demanding game to play on PC if my early performance tests are anything to go by, but it is one of the few games at the moment that's going to support Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 upscaling tech to help it hit smoother frame rates at higher resolutions. And to celebrate it being one of a handful of playable…

Death Stranding’s DLSS tech will turn any RTX card into a 4K 60fps machine

We've still got two weeks to go until Kojima's post-apocalyptic deliver 'em up Death Stranding comes out on PC, but as my early performance tests showed yesterday, even GTX 1060 owners should be able to run the game at 60fps on max settings at 1080p. However, Nvidia have since confirmed that Death Stranding will also be getting DLSS 2.0 support when it comes out on…

Death Stranding runs beautifully on PC, even on a GTX 1060

Kojima Productions' esoteric postman simulator Death Stranding isn't out on PC until July 14th, but I've been strolling around an early preview build of the game for the last couple of days and man alive, it's really very heartening to see such a good-looking PS4 game run at a proper 60fps on PC, lemme tell ya. It bodes extremely well for Horizon Zero Dawn's eventual…
