Tech giants Digital Foundry have put Death Stranding: Director’s Cut through its paces, and the good news is, the PS5 re-release of Hideo Kojima’s Norman Reedus-starring romp is up to scratch in terms of its performance.
First up, the game’s Quality Mode hits native 2160p/60 FPS, although there are dips in frame rate during BT enters and cut scenes, which can drop to the lower 50s. Meanwhile, the Performance Mode runs at 1800p.60 FPS, and the frame rate is maintained at all times.
The load times are equally impressive, clocking in at about 3 seconds on the PS5. Elsewhere, both modes in Death Stranding: Director’s Cut feature the same graphical improvements, enhanced textures, models, water quality and draw distance.
