Death Stranding Patch Available Now Ahead of Game’s Launch

by Liana Ruppert

Death Stranding is almost here and though the reviews seem quite polarizing, that hasn’t halted excitement from the community for seeing Hideo Kojima’s breakout title for themselves. Day One patches are so last season, so there’s a new one available now before the game launches. We even have patch notes, so for those interested, here’s what’s new ahead of launch: 

  • Multiple problems fixed
  • Game balance adjustments
  • Translation quality improvements
  • Updated save data version

The notes also included that Save Data created in version 1.03 will not be compatible with earlier versions of the game. Since many have already gotten their hands on the title before its embargo lifted on November 1st, this is important.


As for the game itself, Death Stranding is releasing just around the corner! The PlayStation 4 version officially arrives on November 8th with a 2020 window for the beginning of PC! You can learn even more about the game, including the awesome new collector’s edition, with our previous coverage here! You can also check out the official synopsis below: 

 “Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the stranded remnants of the future in his hands, Sam embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time. What is the mystery of the Death Stranding? What will Sam discover on the road ahead? A genre-defining gameplay experience holds these answers and more.”
