Initially released in 2019 as a PlayStation console exclusive, the years since its release have seen a Death Stranding PC release and now, after much teasing, it's now officially coming to Xbox Game Pass.

Taking place in the USA after a mass extinction event, Death Stranding PC sees players taking on the role of Sam Bridges (Norman Reedus) as he travels across America to try and unite the divided survivors spread across it while avoiding the paranormal BTs and bandits that stalk the land.

Perhaps one of the more unusual video games to release in recent years, Death Stranding PC is a genre-defying experience that takes the traditional AAA formula and shakes it up to create something new in a way that only Hideo Kojima can.
