Hideo Kojima continues to show off his upcoming Death Stranding, most recently to the developers of The Division 2. Julian Gerighty, a Creative Director at Ubisoft along with other developers got the chance to see the mysterious game from the creators of Metal Gear Solid and they were really impressed.
In a recent Tweet, Gerighty shared a picture of him with Kojima while explaining his visit to Kojima Productions. He referred to the upcoming game by calling it mind-blowing and timeless.
Over the course of making The Division 2 we did many many awesome things and received support from many other developers.
Hugely thankful to Kojima_Hideo for having welcomed us to his gorgeous studio and shown us his mind blowing game.
Trust me, Death Stranding will be timeless.
This doesn’t come as a surprise because the game has always managed to receive considerable praise from actors, movie directors, worthy game developers and musicians in the past.
Joe Penna, the director of Arctic said that he has seen nothing like it and the creator of Quantum Break says that the game will push boundaries. Control’s Remedy Studios and Horizon Zero Dawn’s Guerilla Games were also able to check out the upcoming game and were very impressed by what they saw. However, being called timeless is the biggest praise for a game that we haven’t seen yet.
Despite all the remarks from various developers, the game’s story remains a secret. Norman Reedus put an end to all the speculations by saying that the game “is still a mystery”. He tells us that the released trailers barely show us the actual picture. It’s “whole other thing” for those who have it all figured out from the trailers and easter eggs.
The concept is so far out into the future. Instead of eliminating everyone around you, it’s bringing everyone together. It’s a very positive video game, but scary and depressing at the same time.
With no available release date yet for Death Stranding, it remains to be seen what the game is actually about and how the gameplay works. To know it all, we will have to wait apparently until 2020 because of Sony not attending E3 this year.
Kojima recently confirmed that the game’s planned release date is slightly delayed and it’s not in the polish state yet.
Death Stranding is currently being developed exclusively for PlayStation 4. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 releases on March 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
