Please: (1) TAG ANY SPOILERS; (2) SEARCH the subreddit before asking questions. Details below, thank you!

Hello there, porters! As we approach another new horizon, I'd like to share some vital reminders:

1. Be mindful of others and mark any spoilers in your submissions/comments. Although the main game has been out for a while, there are still many people experiencing Death Stranding for the first time!

General rules:

Use [SPOILER] tags and flairs (Important: Check the sidebar or this page for details.) No spoilers in post titles or thumbnails Don't spoil in the comments if the post isn't tagged as "spoilers" Don't spoil the events of further chapters

Please report any untagged spoilers! You will greatly help the moderators and the community.


2. Do you have questions? Well, good news! Chances are, they have already been answered before!

Please search the subreddit before asking or check our FAQ. A quick query usually pops up some useful results, but if your question is unique and hasn't been answered before, please feel free to ask!

P.S. Some posts might be removed if they don't comply with the subreddit rules, and some posts end up categorized as "spam" by Reddit itself. The spam filters seem a tad bit too aggressive as of right now, but since it's a site-wide initiative, there isn't much we can do to help it. If your submission gets deleted, please don't be offended! We check all the submissions manually, and we'll get to yours as soon as possible.

I got a web page here with some starter guides aimed at helping new porters and answering additional FAQs. Some subpages have spoilers that are marked. I'm more than happy to answer any other questions, too!

also I gotta give props to the mods and this community for keeping spoilers under wraps despite the game being a couple years old. It's such a wild story and new players should def be able to go in blind if they want to.

Dude. That's an incredibly helpful webpage. Thank you for taking the time to put that together.

Exactly what I needed. Brilliant guide. Still not sure how to get my own rope, but presumably it will be given to me at some point.

ID: hfh3rg9

Climbing rope? You'll be given the ability to fabricate it early in chapter 2. If you mean the Strand, you begin with it and it's usually last in the equip menu.

What do we use to tag the new Director's Cut story segments?

ID: hepu5jr

Good question! I assume an ideal solution is to use a [DIRECTOR'S CUT] tag in the beginning of your titles, but also to mark any spoilers manually (the toggle at the bottom of your post that blurs out the content). I'll try and set up our bot to auto-flair those too.

Some awesome examples include the following posts:

[Director's Cut] - A preview of the new road which links; Distribution Centre South of Lake Knot City to Mountain Knot City

[DIRECTOR'S CUT] New Missions not available?

Hello! For those who have already managed to play the director cut how long are the new missions and are they interesting(not including shooting range,racing,etc.).And i have finished the gane on ps 4 would you recommend another playthrough on the ps5?Thanks!

Most of the new missions are retrieval type orders. Some involve MULEs, some are just going out to grab a thing and return. Some have twists, like new type of cargo, not seen in the original game. The new structures and goodies from the HL & Cyberpunk stuff add a lot of fun and genuine utility too. If you enjoyed the game on PS4, def give a replay on the DC a shot!

You didn't mention when posting a spoiler post to state the chapter number in your post.

ID: hduzy5f

Wanted to keep it brief for this post, since the details are already plastered on every page of the sub. However, I'll move the "check this page for details" sentence up a bit to make it extra visible. Thanks!

How much is the Director's Cut upgrade in CAD?

ID: hf84pnr

$15 monopoly monies

7 : Anonymous2021/10/06 17:53 ID: hfmpds9

So I have the game physically on PS4, i put the disk into my new PS5 and saw the 10$ up grade.

I apologize if this is a dumb question or was hidden in the FAQs i didn't see.

But after i buy the 10$ upgrade can i play the game without my PS4 disk in the drive?

Is there no daily discussion thread or a quick Q&A thread where i can ask a small question every now & then? I dont want to make a post for every small query.

Didn't realize my post was a garbled mess. How does the sub handle photography? I checked the faqs and didn't see anything about it unless I missed it? I have some photomode snaps that are pretty amazing and wanted to share so any information would be awesome!

ID: hjx0kcm

The subreddit loves in-game photography! Please feel free to post your pictures, and here are some tips:

Try not to create too many separate posts over a short period of time. You can make a carousel of your favourite images, if there are many. If there is only 2-3 images you'd like to share at one time, you can pick either a carousel or post them as separate posts, with unique post titles. Try to host images directly on Reddit, as opposed to using indirect links to other websites. That way more users will see your content. Make sure to mark spoilers (blurring the image suffices in many cases). Using "[SPOILER]" tags in the post title is always welcome when applicable, but in case of the photo mode posts, the title can be anything you want, really. Use the "Photo mode" flair. Also, check any posts with this flair to see how others make their posts.

That should be all you need!

Thank you for the reply! What if my photos are taking from the cut scenes? Should I include a spoiler tag for good measure?

What's the average time for post approval?

I see new posts a few hours old but my own has been sat waiting approval for 2 days now.
