Death Stranding Director's Cut Launching on iPhone 15 Pro and Apple Silicon Macs on January 30

Kojima Productions and 505 Games today announced that Death Stranding Director's Cut will be launching on select Apple devices on Tuesday, January 30. The popular game will be available on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max with the A17 Pro chip, along with all iPad and Mac models equipped with M-series chips.

Death Stranding
The game can be pre-ordered now on the App Store for a discounted price of $19.99 in the U.S. for a limited time. Regular pricing will be $39.99.

Directed by Hideo Kojima, and starring Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame, Death Stranding Director's Cut is a post-apocalyptic open world adventure game that tasks players with exploring and completing missions in a fictional sci-fi wasteland. The game was first released for the PlayStation 5 in 2021, and for Windows in 2022.

Both the A17 Pro chip for iPhone 15 Pro models and the M3 chip for Macs support hardware-accelerated ray tracing and mesh shading for improved graphics rendering, including more accurate lighting, reflections, and shadows.

One of my favorite games of last gen - this is one that you either love or hate. I am in the first camp.

I haven't played a game since Marathon LOL. I'm getting this for my iMac M3 so I can experience the new capabilities and games. I still suck at games but I gotta have this one for the new hardware. Pre-ordered and can't wait to play this.

"In related news, Apple are partnering with Peleton for a special visionOS version of this award winning walking simulator. It will allow players to use a treadmill to move forward in the game whist immersed in a [S]Virtual Reality[/S] Spatial Computing environment. The sophisticated technology in the visionOS headset detects if the wearer is about to take a step and slowly activates the treadmill via a wifi connection. Apple advises signing up for AppleCare+ before using the integrated feature."

Curious what kind of performance we can expect on non-pro M-chips. I have MBA M2 and would like to try this game, but don't want to spend $20 on a crappy visual experience.
