A new update for Death Stranding (1.13) adds the option to export save data from the PlayStation 4 version. You will then be able to transfer the data to the Death Stranding Director’s Cut, launching later this month on PlayStation 5.
To export the data, open your menu and navigate to ‘System’ then ‘Export Sava Data’. Here you will see the entire list of what will and what won’t carry over.
A new trailer for the Director’s Cut has also been released earlier today, edited by Kojima himself. The game is releasing on September 24th.
