Anyone who would choose to order Sackboy: A Big Adventure Digital Deluxe Edition will get freebies on top of the base game, which includes an exclusive Death Stranding costume.
Coinciding the launch of Sony’s next-gen console on Nov. 12, 2020, the Digital Deluxe rendition makes for a perfect complement with the shiny new console. Not exclusive to the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 owners can also experience the game on the same day.
Set at a price point higher than just getting the game, the Digital Deluxe Edition features exclusive content that comes alongside the Sam Bridges outfit. For $80, this special edition will get any buyer the following contents:
- 20 Sackboy Avatars
- Digital Soundtrack
- Digital art book
- Four unique Sackboy costumes, including Connor, Deacon, Jin, and Sam Bridges
- Four Sackboy emotes which corresponds to each costume

While each custom skin is special by themselves, Death Stranding’s Sam “Porter” Bridges makes for an outstanding inclusion to the list. Featuring the game’s main protagonist himself, it shows the “Sackboy” version of Sam, albeit in a manner that may not fit everybody’s taste.
One criticism boils down to how Norman Reedus’ facial hair is incorporated into Sackboy. Another points to the “sack” depiction of “BB” in a special pod. Everything else is standard fair, but could have seen more improvement by highlighting more on the number of boxes that stacks at the back.
With a direct partnership with Death Stranding’s developer itself, Kojima Productions played its part with the marketing. In a form of a video tweet, the company’s official Twitter channel displays the Sam Bridges skin. Alongside it is a link to pre-order the game online.
Players who still yet could make the jump to PS5 but has the budget to purchase the PS4 version are encouraged to do so. As anyone who will own the PlayStation 4 release of the game is entitled to a free upgrade to the PS5 version. Essentially, giving the players instant access to the game. All the while also providing future considerations should they choose to finally upgrade their experience on the PS5.
However, for individuals with a lot more budget to spare than $80, an additional $9.99 will grant an exclusive plushie. The plushie shows a Sackboy in a tiger costume.
Meanwhile, those on a tight budget can instead opt for just the base game at launch for $59.99. But this comes at a caveat that no bonus costumes come in it.
