Hideo Kojima's latest video game "Death Stranding" will be available for PC users on both Steam and the Epic Games Store, it has been confirmed.  The game was previously confirmed to be coming to PC rather than simply remaining a PlayStation 4 exclusive. 

The game's release date remains Summer 2020, with a simultaneous debut on both platforms, though both storefronts have opened pre-orders already. Like the PlayStation 4 release, the PC version of Death Stranding will run $59.99 for the base price. 

It was unclear at first which PC distribution service "Death Stranding" would rely on to reach players who prefer to game on computers. Recently, Rockstar Games created its own game launcher for the release of "Red Dead Redemption 2," so there was speculation that "Death Stranding" may very well follow suit. Fortunately, that's not the case, and players can choose which platform they'd rather play the game on. Steam is already a very established name in the digital distribution service game, and the Epic Games Store is barreling toward becoming a behemoth in the space as well.

"Death Stranding" released Friday (Nov. 8) on PlayStation 4 and remains a confusing, divisive game between critics and audiences. It currently stands at a Metacritic score of 83, though many of the complaints levied against it seem to show that the reviewers were confused by the narrative, which is actually quite straightforward to understand. However, those that praise it and offered high review scores note that it's a "true original" and moves the genre forward. 

It's true that the game is vastly different from what you may be used to when it comes to Hideo Kojima's series of video game titles. It's hardly similar when it comes to games like "Metal Gear Solid," which Kojima is known for, but instead brings a totally unrecognizable set of functions to the table. 

No matter your take on the game, the fact that it's coming to PC means it will be much more accessible to all types of gamers going forward. That way, "Death Stranding" can truly look to fulfill its purpose of "bringing the world together" after all, even if the game's actual contents divides people who play it.
