505 Games, the publisher behind the PC version of Kojima Production's Death Stranding, has confirmed that Death Stranding will release simultaneously on both Steam and the Epic Games Store.  

Death Stranding released on PlayStation 4 on November 8th to mixed reviews; mostly due to the game's atypical gameplay and story focus. The PC version of the game will launch in "Early Summer 2020", with 505 Games opting not to take part in Epic Games Store exclusivity, as they did with Control. 

Right now, it is possible to pre-purchase Death Stranding on both Steam and the Epic Games Store. At this time Death Stranding has been revealed for no other PC storefront. Sadly, this means that there will likely be no GOG version of Death Stranding, at least at launch. 

On PC, Death Stranding will cost $59.99/£54.99/€59.99. At this time the game has no confirmed PC system requirements. 

Below is 505 Games' announcement of PC pre-orders going live. Strangely, this announcement has mentions of the Epic Games Store redacted on Steam. On Valve's storefront, the announcement reads that the game "will launch simultaneously on Steam" redacting "and the Epic Games Store". The Steam announcement also redacted "store of your choice", and replaced it with "store page...". At this time it is unknown who made these alterations, 505 Games, or Valve/Steam.  

     Last week, we unveiled the exciting news that 505 Games will bring Hideo Kojima’s genre-defying Death Stranding, to PC next Summer. We’ve been flooded with questions across our social channels since and the response off the back of our announcement has been overwhelming. First things first, thank you for taking the time to show us so much support. And secondly, we hope this short but sweet blog covers a couple of those burning questions…

Developed by Kojima Productions, Death Stranding is one of the most anticipated games of the last decade and stars Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Léa Seydoux (Spectre) with additional appearances by Academy Award® winning director Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), comedian and television host Conan O’Brien (TBS’ Conan) and games personality Geoff Keighley, creator of The Game Awards®.

Death Stranding follows the story of Sam Porter (Norman Reedus), who must travel across a ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation after mysterious explosions set off a series of supernatural events and otherworldly creatures begin to plague the landscape.

Now for the news that many of you have been waiting for… Death Stranding will launch simultaneously on both Steam and the Epic Games Store, priced at $59.99/£54.99/59.99 Euros.
What’s more… Death Stranding is available to pre-order right here, right now. For more information, head on over to the store of your choice!
