Death Stranding Director’s Cut wide mode is quintessentially Kojima

A ‘final’ trailer for Death Stranding Director’s Cut has been revealed by director Hideo Kojima, showcasing the updated game’s new wide mode.

The trailer, which was captured entirely within the PS5 version of Death Stranding and edited by Kojima himself, showcases the updated game’s (initially confusing) widescreen picture mode.

Death Stranding Director’s Cut wide mode sees horizontal cinematic black bars added to the top and bottom of the screen (without cutting off these parts of the image), making the aspect ratio 21:9 (rather than 16:9) and stretching the sides of the image out. Essentially it means that players will see more of the background, enemies, and items.
