Death Stranding (opens in new tab) is out today on the PlayStation 4, but won't come to PC until sometime in 2020. You can purchase it on that platform right now, though, as Death Stranding store pages are now live on both Steam (opens in new tab) and the Epic Games Store (opens in new tab).

Neither site is overly laden with information and there are no PC system requirements listed at this point, although the Steam page indicates that it will support achievements—no real surprise there—and "partial controller support." It sells for $60/£55/€60, and is slated to drop in the summer of 2020, which lines up with a Kojima Productions tweet (opens in new tab) from October.

The biggest revelation here is confirmation that Death Stranding will not be an Epic Games Store exclusive. Kojima Productions never said it would be, but Death Stranding on PC is being published by 505, whose previous big release, Control, is Epic exclusive; that, coupled with Kojima's consistence in saying that it's "coming to PC" without naming a storefront, led to speculation that it could be another big Epic exclusive.

In case you missed it earlier this month, here's Death Stranding's ridiculously long launch trailer (opens in new tab), and because you want to know, we've also got a roundup of PS4 reviews (opens in new tab), with a little bit of the discourse sprinkled on top to keep it fun.

From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
