The awesome Christmas free game – Death Stranding Director’s Cut was rescinded by Epic Games, and blamed on an intern!
Death Stranding Director’s Cut Fiasco : What Happened?
On Christmas Day 2022, gamers worldwide were delighted to find that Epic Games gave out an epic AAA game – Death Stranding Director’s Cut!
But their delight soon turned to frustration as many reported that they were unable to add it to their account, or were logged out when they tried to check out.
That sweet taste of Christmas soon turned into bitterness when everyone finally realised that Epic Games switched out the Director’s Cut for the standard Death Stranding base game.
Even worse – those who “successfully” received Death Stranding Director’s Cut apparently reported that their game were eventually replaced with the standard edition.
Epic Games giveth, and Epic Games taketh away.

Epic Games China later apologised for the mistake.
Death Stranding Director’s Cut Fiasco : No Big Deal
What’s new really? It’s always an intern’s fault. These mistakes are never made by regular staff, or the company. It’s always an intern.
Of course, you may ask – why would you give such an important task – releasing an AAA game on Christmas Day – to an intern? Or you may ask – why didn’t anyone check on the intern’s work before approving it?
In the meantime, the poor intern (if he/she exists) is being chewed up by everyone for making a mistake while everyone else was enjoying Christmas with their families.
If the poor intern is reading this – you are an intern, and you are there to learn the ropes; not to be hung out to dry for making a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes. This wasn’t your first mistake, and won’t be your last mistake. So just chill and ignore the flak.
As for us cheapskate gamers (yes, I’m one), there’s no need to rip off our shirts in anger. We are not losing much with the standard edition of Death Stranding.
The Director’s Cut for PC only adds some minor cutscenes, and an extra mission, as well as small freebies like backpack patches, Bridges Special Delivery Team Suit (Gold and Silver), BB pod customization (Chiral Gold and Silver), and Power Gloves (Gold and Silver).
You will still get the same HIGH FRAME RATE, PHOTO MODE and ULTRA-WIDE MONITOR SUPPORT, as well as cross-over content from Valve Corporation’s HALF-LIFE series, from the Director’s Cut.
And remember – Director’s Cut or not, you are getting a triple A game for FREE! So just enjoy the freebie, and stop bitching!
