Death Stranding on PC Game Pass? Difficult

Over the past few hours, the Twitter profile of PC Game Pass (aka Xbox Game Pass for computers) has been updated, with a new profile photo that may have revealed what will be one of the next games in the pipeline on the service. And it would not be an indie game or a Microsoft exclusive, but Death Stranding.

A lot has been written about Death Stranding, perhaps too much. The game is Hideo Kojima's first work as a developer unrelated to Konami, the first original title after a life spent on Metal Gear Solid. Its original version debuted in 2019 on PlayStation 4, and then arrived on PC. Subsequently, in 2021, Kojima Productions launched a special version, called Director's Cut, which includes a series of new content and a radical change in gameplay (however optional), with a launch on PS5 first and later on PC. Now, according to some users, there is a very good chance that the game could arrive right on Microsoft's service.| ); }

Clearly, at least for now, we are facing speculation. However, the German fair's Opening Night Live could be the perfect time for such an announcement. To find out the truth it will be necessary to wait a little less than a week: the Teutonic kermesse will start on 23 August 2022. Will you be able to be patient?

Xbox's PC Game Pass Seemingly Teases Death Stranding Is Coming To The Service

Death Stranding is one of 2019’s best games (in my personal opinion), and it’s one I hope everyone gets the chance to try. Sure, you might not like it, but if it hits, it hits hard. 

PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 players know that, as the game was PlayStation exclusive at launch. It hit PC in 2020, but you had to buy it outright like any other PC game. Now, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass members might get the chance to try this Norman Reedus-led adventure across America with their subscription if a new, somewhat cryptic tweet from the official PC Game Pass account is anything to go by. 

Check it out for yourself below: 

As you can see, PC Game Pass draws attention to the fact that it’s changed its profile pic to that of a familiar landscape. If you look at the profile pic, you’ll see what appears to be a landscape shot from Death Stranding. Now, it could be a different game but like, come on, that’s Death Stranding, right? 

All of this is to say that it seems like a formerly PlayStation-exclusive game – mind you, one developed by independent studio Kojima Productions that was funded by Sony Interactive Entertainment – is coming to PC Game Pass, a subscription service that’s a part of the Xbox ecosystem.
