Death Stranding is releasing for PC on July 14, giving PC players a chance to experience Hideo Kojima’s strange opus. We’ve already seen the minimum and recommended specs for the game, but now publisher 505 Games has revealed some more details about what to expect if you load the game up on a powerful rig.
Death Stranding on PC will feature Nvidia DLSS 2.0 technology, as long as you have a GeForce RTX GPU installed. This means that the game can run with a frame rate over 100fps at 1440p, or at over 60fps with a 4K image.
The press release sent to GameSpot includes a quote from Kojima Productions’ Akio Sakamoto, praising the game’s PC release with NVIDIA tech. “The extra performance Nvidia DLSS 2.0 delivers in Death Stranding allows gamers to unlock the vast graphical potential of the PC platform by increasing the graphics settings and resolution, delivering on the vision we have for the game,” Sakamoto says.
A new trailer has also been released, showcasing the game’s stunning PC graphics.
GameSpot editor Michael Higham has gone hands-on with the PC version of Death Stranding, and says that it “runs like a dream” on the platform.
“Death Stranding looks great and runs well, and can even surpass that of the PS4 Pro, given you have the proper PC hardware,” Higham writes. “It often goes without saying, but this is good news–the broader takeaway here is that the quality of Death Stranding’s PC port can speak to how Sony’s first-party exclusives can get another lease on life on a new platform for a different audience. “
Death Stranding received a 9/10 in GameSpot’s review of the PlayStation 4 version. “It’s a game that requires patience, compassion, and love, and it’s also one we really need right now,” reviewer Kallie Plagge wrote–a statement that holds even more true in 2020 than it did in 2019.
