Death Stranding has Gone Gold, Won’t Require PS Plus for Multiplayer
There’s a couple of good news for fans of legendary game maker Hideo Kojima and those counting the days till they can start playing Death Stranding. The first is that the game has gone gold and is on track for its November 8th launch.
Kojima Productions made the announcement on Twitter, posting an image of Kojima himself holding the gold master copy and the entire development team celebrating. In the tweet, the team thanked everyone who worked on the game and the support of the fans.
You can check out the tweet below:
DEATH STRANDING is complete and has gone gold!! Hideo Kojima, the Kojima Productions team, everyone at Sony and Guerrilla, cast members; all put their heart and soul into it. Thanks for your support, we can’t wait to bring you a new “A HIDEO KOJIMA GAME”. Play it on Nov 8th!! pic.twitter.com/Nj73oGG05p— Kojima Productions (@KojiPro2015_EN) September 26, 2019
The second good news, and one that might just be even better than the first, is that Death Stranding will not require a PlayStation Plus subscription for multiplayer. Spotted first by the sharp-eyed folks at Multiplayer First, the box art for the Limited Edition Death Stranding PS4 Pro Bundle (GAME exclusive in the UK) has the following text printed: “Death Stranding does not require PlayStation Plus subscription.”
This is definitely good news not just because getting to play multiplayer without having to pay a subscription is awesome, but also because Death Stranding’s multiplayer elements won’t really allow you to play directly with other players but only have them affect your game world and in different ways (and vice versa).
Death Stranding launches on November 8th exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
