Hideo Kojima and KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS' DEATH STRANDING arrives on PC July 14th, replete with new PC features, graphical enhancements, and performance-accelerating NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 technology. Furthermore, NVIDIA, 505 Games and KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS have partnered to deliver the very best experience for PC players, with optimized performance, Game Ready Drivers, engineering assistance and testing, and much more.

If you haven’t heard of the game before now, DEATH STRANDING casts players as Sam Bridges. In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the planet, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the DEATH STRANDING. With spectral creatures plaguing the landscape, and the planet on the verge of a mass extinction, it’s up to Sam to journey across the ravaged wasteland to save mankind from impending annihilation.

DEATH STRANDING is rendered by Guerrilla Games’ Decima Engine with beautiful, realistic photogrammetry textures, high definition models, and stunning landscapes. In addition, the PC edition of DEATH STRANDING is enhanced with a range of new features, headlined by NVIDIA DLSS 2.0. Powered by dedicated AI processors in GeForce RTX GPUs, called Tensor Cores, DLSS 2.0 is a deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, crisp game images. It gives gamers the performance headroom to maximize game settings and increase output resolutions, for a superior, higher-fidelity experience.
