The director’s cut came out last week. In addition to the new content, players saw some fresh references to Hideo Kojima’s previous games. So, the author of the YouTube channel Douglas N Gomes found Easter eggs associated with the teaser and the original.
While resting in the hideout, Sam may experience two new nightmares. In the first scene, the hero wakes up and sees a ghostly figure in the shower. The creature begins to whirl and make sounds like Lisa from PT. Next, it takes the pose of Psycho Mantis, one of the bosses of the original. At the end, the monster breaks out of the booth and attacks Sam. Judging by the glasses on his face, this creature was Kojima himself.
In the second scene, the hero of Norman Reedus enters the underwater world and sees a giant sperm whale.
The Director’s Cut of Death Stranding is only available on PlayStation 5.
