My copy of Windows 10 is fully updated, but DEATH STRANDING is asking me for an older version before I can play.

Please ensure that both the DEATH STRANDING executable (ds.exe) and your Steam app (steam.exe) and/or Epic Games launcher (EpicGamesLauncher.exe) do not have an older version of Windows compatibility enabled.  

ds.exe can be found in [drive:]\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Death Stranding

steam.exe can be found in [drive:]\Program Files (x86)\Steam

EpicGamesLauncher.exe can be found in [drive:]\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Portal\Binaries\Win32

Please note that your path location may slightly vary from the above depending on your preferences.

Right-click on the .exe and select Properties. Select the Compatibility tab and ensure that the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box is not checked:
