Death Stranding Game Engine

When Hideo Kojima left Konami, he had to leave his technology behind. Fox Engine is Konami’s property and it will stay that way. Kojima needed something new for Death Stranding and he found the right engine at Guerrilla Games.

DECIMA, the Horizon Zero Dawn Engine, is being used for Death Stranding. According to GG, in essence, it is the engine used for all of its games but in the last couple of years in has taken a massive technological leap.

Death Stranding Release Date/Window

Death Stranding is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro sometime in 2018. Kojima spoke at TGS and announced that Death Stranding will be out before 2020. He mentioned that it will be out before the year Akira is set in. Akira is a film that is set in 2019 so by that reasoning, Death Stranding should be released in 2018.

Death Stranding Plot

The latest trailer for Death Stranding was revealed at The Game Awards 2016. The footage teases the idea of the multiverse, different dimensions, and even time travel. However,  at this point, we can not even begin to make sense of what’s going on.

Death Stranding is a PlayStation 4 console exclusive. The IP is owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment. In the beginning, we did hear about a PC version but both Sony and Hideo Kojima have been silent since then.
