The recently released Director's Cut of Kojima's Death Stranding is seemingly coming to PC very soon and will be one of the first games to support Intel's XeSS upscaling tech.

It looks like Death Stranding Director's Cut will not remain a PlayStation exclusive after all. According to the leaked Intel press release, obtained by VideoCardz, the developers are currently implementing Intel's Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) AI upscaling technology to many games including an exclusive implementation for Death Stranding Director's Cut.

Here's the part from the press release that mentions Death Stranding Director's Cut PC port:

"Intel announced ISV partner momentum with its XeSS AI-driven upscaling technology, which is currently being integrated into many game titles across a range of publishers, including exclusive integration into Kojima Productions' Death Stranding Director's Cut, which also includes core optimisation for 12th gen Intel Core processors."

Furthermore, Intel's press release mentions that many developers are currently working with XeSS tech including Codemasters, Ubisoft, Techland and IO Interactive to name a few. 

Sadly, the press release does not mention when exactly will Death Stranding Director's Cut arrive to PC. The president of Death Stranding publisher 505 Games mentions that they are delighted to work with Intel on the PC release of the Director's Cut version but does not specify a release date. 

However, we assume the PC release should be announced very soon given that this press release is probably part of Intel's CES 2022 appearance.
