How Much Does It Cost to Upgrade to Director’s Cut?

Death Stranding Director’s Cut will be launched exclusively on PS5 and won’t be available on PS4.

If you already own the game on your PS4, you can $10 and upgrade it to the PS5 Director’s Cut Digital Deluxe Edition. Now, this is more like a bug in Death Stranding’s upgrade system that allows players to get the PS5 Deluxe Edition cheaper than its $60 price tag, but how?

Well, if you own a PS4, you can buy a Standard Death Stranding code for it for $29.99 from Amazon, or even cheaper from third-party retailers. Once you activate the code, you can pay $10 extra and get the Death Stranding Director’s Cut Digital Deluxe Edition on PS5.

So, this way, you have paid $39.99 for a product that is being sold for $59.99. It’s even cheaper than the game’s Standard Edition on PS5.
