An announcement from Kojima Productions on Twitter has confirmed that Death Stranding will be getting a PC release in early summer 2020. Presently set to launch for PlayStation 4 on November 8, the game was originally confirmed as an exclusive to Sony’s console.

The PC version will be be published by 505 Games, while the PS4 version is still being published by Sony. 505 Games said it would reveal more details on the PC version in the “near future,” presumably including its digital storefront. The publisher was also behind the release of Remedy Entertainment’s Control.

As of now, it appears that Death Stranding will not be releasing on any other platforms. Though Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain did release on Xbox One, Kojima’s games have often been released exclusively to PlayStation. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater initially only launched on PS2, for instance, while Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has remained a PS3 exclusive since its release over a decade ago.

Death Stranding remains one of the most-anticipated games of the year, both because of Hideo Kojima’s track record and the numerous stars set to appear in the story. Alongside protagonist Norman Reedus, the game features Léa Seydoux, Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo del Toro, and even Conan O’Brien. Some of these actors will essentially be making cameo appearances, while Mikkelsen and Seydoux will play major roles in the story.

The bizarre narrative involving apparitions, powerful babies, package delivery, and reconnecting a fractured United States has bewildered us thus far, but that is something we’ve come to expect from Kojima over the year s– we look elsewhere for straightforward storytelling.

Death Stranding will release for PS4 on November 8. Alongside the standard version of the game, there is also a Digital Deluxe Edition, a Special Edition with a steelbook, and a Collector’s Edition with a baby statue. Given that the PlayStation 5 is due to release in just a year, it’s also possible that Sony will bring an enhanced version to its next-generation system, as well.

Saddler looms in front of amber in the Resident Evil 4 remake.

Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 remake is just a few days away and the anticipation couldn’t be higher. After a wave of glowing reviews, fans of the GameCube classic are ready to have their heads chainsawed off all over again. That wait will come to an end on Friday, March 24, but impatient players may find themselves looking for a way to kill the time until then.

If you’re in the boat, or simply want to properly prepare yourself for the remake, we’re here to help. Part of the Resident Evil 4 remake’s appeal is the way it engages with not just the original game or the series’ past, but the 20 years’ worth of gaming history that would follow it. With a game as important and influential as Resident Evil 4, you don’t need to go far to see how it impacted the action-adventure genre. The remake shines because it’s seemingly aware of that idea, examining the original through a modern lens.

The day of reckoning is fast approaching: The Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop isclosing down on March 27. When that happens, you’ll no longer be able to make any digital purchases on those systems. Considering that several games on each platform only ever got digital releases, it’s creating a bit of a preservation nightmare. Hidden gems that never came to another platform, like Affordable Space Adventures, will be totally lost to time.

But it isn’t just obscure indies that are impacted by that change: One of Nintendo’s biggest franchises is about to lose a piece of its storied history. You’ve only got just over a week to grab a certain Legend of Zelda game before it disappears forever -- though it’s probably not one you’re expecting.
