Death Stranding Director's Cut Rated by ESRB for PlayStation 5
Written by Ankit Gaba

Death Stranding Director’s Cut was recently revealed some days ago, and it has been rated by ESRB now for only PlayStation 5; despite Death Stranding being on PC, this could mean that Death Stranding Director’s Cut might not be coming to PC or any other rumoured Platforms for a while.

We do not much about Death Stranding Director’s Cut yet, but here’s the ESRB description “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 states, 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” appears in the dialogue.”
For comparison, the original ESRB rating of Death Stranding didn’t contain some stuff the Director’s Cut does; you can click here to compare them. 
It is rated as “M” and contains “Blood, Partial Nudity, Intense Violence and Strong Language.”
