Here’s when Death Stranding goes live on PlayStation Network

The latest PlayStation 4 exclusive is on the horizon, and players are adjusting the straps on their backpack and stuffing their babies into bottles (bear with us) in anticipation of Kojima Productions' Death Stranding.

Digital copies of the game will unlock pretty early, so anyone that's pre-ordered the title will have the opportunity to download and play the game very soon.

The game, which is absolutely off-the-wall and unlike anything we've ever played before (see our Death Stranding review for more insight) launches on November 8th for most regions, coming out late in the States on the 7th.

Check out below for exactly what time the game will be available to play on your PlayStation 4, and check ou t Death Stranding pre-load page to learn what you need to know about downloading it as soon as possible.

Which PlayStation exclusive are you most excited for?


What time does Death Stranding release on PS4?

Here's when you can expect Death Stranding to launch in your region (hat-tip to VG24/7 ):

  • 21:00 PT on November 7th

  • 00:00 ET on November 8th

  • 00:00 GMT on November 8th

  • 00:00 NZDT on November 8th

If you are keen on playing the game the second it is physically possible to do so, you're going to want to get it downloaded.

Before any sort of Day One Patch is applied, Death Stranding's file size is around 55GB.

That file size puts the game at slightly bigger than other PlayStation titles we've seen so far this generation. Take Marvel's Spider-Man and Horizon: Zero Dawn, for example – each of them coming in at around 50GB at launch. Death Stranding just about pips them for size.

You can download it from the PlayStation Store now if you've pre-ordered the game.

Death Stranding Review – 5/5

Reviewed on PS4 Pro

Death Stranding is the most unique big-budget game I’ve ever played, a socially-minded injection of inventive ideas into a genre that has long survived by being lazy and brutish. This ambitious formula-flipper is brimming with empathy and carefully courts cinematic influences, an ensemble cast and a world of eye-watering scale, delivering a sticky gameplay loop to tie it all together and create a console generation-defining experience.

All of this is complemented by an epic narrative and a meticulously melancholy world that carefully reflects the endangered society we live in, somehow using the surreal and imaginative elements debuted in trailers to deliver impactful truths and commentary about our divided world. Once more Kojima has proven himself as a brave game maker with boundary-probing ideas that will advance and influence the space for years to come.

The Good

  • A rich understanding of cinematic principles and a stellar cast results in a nuanced, affecting narrative
  • The gorgeous, oppressive world balances heavy gloom and hope to leave a lasting impression
  • A remarkable body of music soundtracks a series of tear-jerking moments, with emotion layered carefully into the sticky gameplay loop
  • Best in class graphics thanks to the stunning detail afforded by the Decima engine

The Bad

  • I’ve played it all and I’m desperate for more
