Kojima Productions has released the Death Stranding 1.04 update patch notes ahead of the game’s highly anticipated launch tomorrow. It’s unusual for a game to have this many update before it’s even released, but it does (hopefully) mean that Hideo Kojima’s title will run without any hitches.
Death Stranding 1.04 Update Patch Notes
This update appears to be a pretty minor one, so don’t get too excited about the patch notes below. Grab ’em while they’re hot!
- Various performance improvements
- Multiple problems fixed
And that’s your lot, folks.
Death Stranding is finally released for PlayStation 4 tomorrow, after three years worth of development. The game is also coming to the PC, but not until summer 2020.
Death Stranding was first announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, some six months after Hideo Kojima departed Konami. The game was largely shrouded in mystery for the next couple of years, and all that we got to see of the game were jar babies, dead whales and Norman Reedus’ rear end.
Kojima-san has recently revealed that he may need to produce a sequel to Death Stranding in order to establish what he calls the ‘Strand’ genre of video games. In addition, he Metal Gear creator also said he’d like to work with Keanu Reeves at some point, too.
In addition to Reedus, Death Stranding also features Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo Del Toro, and cameos from Geoff Keighley and Conan O’ Brien.
Kojima is already looking ahead to his next project, revealing he wants to produce a ‘new format of game,’ whatever that might be.
Here’s the full synopsis:
In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the globe, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With otherworldly creatures plaguing the landscape, and mass extinction imminent, it’s up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation.
