Kojima Productions hit us with a big one today as they dropped a new trailer for Death Stranding and its release date. The PlayStation 4 exclusive game will be hitting shelves on November 8, 2019, according to Hideo Kojima.
The new Death Stranding trailer is a nine-minute-long video in which Kojima Productions showed a bunch of new gameplay content such as new environments, new equipment, a new story-line and so much more in addition to the Death Stranding release date.
Not only did Kojima Productions hit us with a new trailer that gives us an in-depth look into the game-play of the game. They also released a new statement about the themes of Death Stranding and its game-play.
People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation.
Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.
The game stars Norman Reedus as Sam Bridges, a courier who must explore the dark world that has been transformed by a mysterious phenomenon known as the “Death Strandings”. Players are tasked with reuniting the games shattered world by forming new connections.
The overall story of Death Stranding remains mysterious. But the new trailer does provide a glimpse into how the game will actually play. The game has various survival elements and gives off hits horizon zero dawn. Mainly when you need to “plug into the other world” and use the “bridge baby” to see strange creatures.
Interestingly, the game deals with many themes that were addressed in a leak last year. Since the Death Stranding leak had no credibility not many people paid attention to it. However, in the light of the new trailer and recent teasers, the Reddit post has become intriguing.
Death Stranding is developed by Kojima Productions and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game will be directed by Hideo Kojima and is an action game set in an open world environment. The game was first unveiled at E3 2016, just a few short months after Hideo confirmed his departure from Konami. Kojima Productions has since then released teasers and trailers at events like E3, Tokyo Game Show, and The Game awards. Although none of these had a clear insight into the games game-play or world.
To add to all this excitement, pre-orders for the game are now open. Those who order now will be getting various golden goodies, including special armor and an exoskeleton that increases your speed. Of course, the game also comes in Special, Digital Deluxe, and Collector’s Editions.
