The pre-loads for Death Stranding are live and now we know the exact launch times of the game across the world.
Kojima Production’s long-awaited Death Stranding will officially launch today, on November 8 and while the game hasn’t come out yet, it managed to divide most players into two distinct groups. Some are admiring what Hideo Kojima and his team did with creating this brand new IP from the ground, and others don’t like the presentation and what Death Stranding has to offer in the gameplay department. Nonetheless, the release date for Death Stranding is finally here while the pre-loads of the game are live for quite some time now, Death Stranding doesn’t unlock for everyone across the globe at the same exact time and those who went on and pre-ordered the digital version of Death Stranding on the PlayStation Store, need to wait a little bit longer in order for their regional countdown to finally end and let them play Kojima’s latest game.
Death Stranding preorder bonuses for the base game include Gold “Sam” Sunglasses, Gold Armor Plate, Gold Hat, Gold Speed Skeleton as well as the Dynamic PS4 theme of Death Stranding and the Chibi Ludens PSN Avatar. By pre-ordering the Special Edition of the game you will get all of the base game preorder bonuses in addition to Custom Steelbook that includes the game, Gold “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses and Death Stranding: Timefall original music digital album with behind-the-scenes digital video. The game also has an amazing Collector’s Edition which offers Gold “Ludens Mask” Sunglasses, Gold Power Skeleton, Gold Armor Plate (Lvl 2), Gold All-Terrain Skeleton, 10 PSN Character Avatars, Ludens Keychain, Bridges Cargo Case, BB Pod (a golden baby in a vat) as well as all the pre-order bonuses available in both the base game and the Special Edition.

- New Zealand: 12 am NZDT on Friday, November 8.
- Pacific US: 9 pm PT on Thursday, November 7.

Death Stranding will be available for PS4 on November 8th, with a PC port of the game coming at some point in 2020. Here is a summary of everything you need to know about Kojima Production’s newest game, from explaining the drama between Kojima and Konami to exploring the story of Death Stranding, the gameplay, the famous cast of the game and much more. In another Death Stranding-related new, Hideo Kojima recently said that he wouldn’t recommend playing the game offline because you completely lose the support of other players and it becomes an entirely standalone, single-player experience but his vision for Death Stranding has always been to make the game feel like a single-player experience while naturally connecting you to other players around the world (you can read more about that here.)
