Death Stranding Director's Cut Rated by the ESRB - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 21 June 2021 / 899 Views
Kojima Productions and Hideo Kojima during Summer Games Fest Kickoff Live announced Death Stranding Director’s Cut for the PlayStation 5, which will be "coming soon." The full reveal for the game is "just weeks away."
Death Stranding Director’s Cut has now been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and unsurprisingly been given a Mature rating due to blood, intense violence, partial nudity, and strong language.

Check out the ESRB rating summary below:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a courier (Sam Porter) transporting packages across a post-apocalyptic environment. As players traverse mountainous terrain, they can be attacked by human settlers and ghostly apparitions. Players use machine guns, grenades, and shotguns to kill enemies; firefights are highlighted by realistic gunfire, large splashes of blood, and cries of pain. In some stages, players can perform stealth takedowns of enemies (e.g., strangling characters from behind). Cutscenes contain more intense instances of violence: a man and an infant shot—the latter, accidentally (blood splatter appears below the infant); a character shooting a comatose patient in the head; a man stabbing himself repeatedly in the distance. A handful of scenes depict a character with his buttocks exposed. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
Death Stranding launched for the PlayStation 4 in November 2019 and for PC in July 2020.
