FAQs by Developers

Will achievements also be transferred if I choose to upgrade to DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT?

Yes! Achievements will be transferred but there are a few achievements that have changed in DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT. You will need to fulfil additional conditions in order to obtain certain achievements in DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT.

Can we have multiple saves in DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT? Will I be able to redo the story from scratch then jump back into my main file that has near 100% completion?

Multiple saves are possible, and it is possible to start the story over from scratch and then jump back to the main file that is near 100% completion.

However, it is safer to save the main file that is close to 100% completion in advance when starting the story over from scratch, as the save data may be overwritten.

Will DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT be treated like a new game on Steam?

DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT will not overwrite DEATH STRANDING, but please be sure that if you are upgrading your save files from DEATH STRANDING to Director’s Cut, you will not be able to continue playing with the save file on DEATH STRANDING.
