Great stuff, the game was great and something different from the typical AAA games out there.
Great Directing, Story, Music, Aesthetics.

Gameplay wasn't for everyone but I really liked it, I will replay it for sure.

Many people didn't like Death Stranding because they were expecting it to be more similar to MGS, the games that made its director popular.

So maybe he made the Directot's Cut to more MGS-like, more similar to the previous games of the director. Even if using mostly existing features, who knows if added like a lot of VR missions-like infiltrations, cardboard boxes, sneaking into air vents, etc. So now stealth gameplay becomes more important and that's why they included into the ESRB description.
That is why I'm curious of what the differences are because if it is very substancial it should be worth of a new playthought.

To play this masterpiece in 4K 60fps with Dualsense support is enough justification of me to pay again, I normally hate double dipping but Death Stranding is one of those few special games that I would pay the price of admission for ten times over.
I'm right with you here. Along with Cuphead and TLOU2, DS provided one of my favourite experiences last gen. To play this on PS5 is worth paying full price again for me.

Depending on how much new content will be in it I will either hate this director's cut or love it.

Cause if it's substantial I can't play it, CAUSE NO PS5.

I found this game actually really soothing. Just traverse landscapes on your own, and at the right moments, some suspense thrown in. Then I wasted too much time grinding materials for infrastructure. If they update the stealth gameplay thats pretty cool.

Maybe I’ll tease myself into the idea of going back if it becomes a PS+ offering down the line, but the endgame grind and some of the mechanical frustrations are difficult to stomach when you already know the story beats.

What if the upgrade is free?

If they do a "peaceful" mode that completely removes the MULES and the BT's I am 1000% on board, for sure.
