Hideo Kojima has taken to Twitter to give us a sneak peek at what the photo mode will look like for Death Stranding (opens in new tab) on PC. Check it out below.
These are some examples from the Photo Mode in the PC ver. We will introduce on how to create them in another video later. Me, and some staffs that loves to take photos enjoyed making this Mode! Available, June 2nd.Pre-order nowhttps://t.co/TxRuNL91u2 pic.twitter.com/WvMwqzPiBnMarch 4, 2020
While the world of Death Stranding is eerily beautiful, it looks like the photo mode will be fairly standard, with the ability to capture a pic from a variety of angles, change poses, adjust color and brightness with sliders, and apply filters. There's even a Polaroid option for the Urban Outfitters millennial in you (I feel seen). Considering the PC version of Death Stranding will support ultra-wide monitors, photo mode seems like a no-brainer.
Kojima's teaser has PS4 fans wondering if the console will get a photo mode, as you can only capture gameplay via screenshots. While he hasn't responded to requests to add a photo mode to PS4, he did discuss how he's including photography modes in most of his games, starting with the original Metal Gear Solid. Kojima also discussed potentially hosting Death Stranding photography competitions, so expect a lot of BBs on your timeline again in the near future.
I came up the idea called “camera” in MGS1(1998). I thought it’d be effective having the items like “sniper rifle”, “remote control missile” and “camera” if we could switch the camera POV ⇄3rd person view if the game world can exists all in 3D.March 4, 2020
Death Stranding will drop for PC on June 2, along with a Half-Life tie-in (opens in new tab) that lets you put headcrabs on Sam's head. If you pre-order the game you'll get some
HD wallpapers and cosmetics, but everyone who buys the PC version of the game will get a digital art book, an expanded score, and some other special cosmetics including Ludens mask sunglasses and a gold and silver all-terrain skeleton.
