After three years of waiting, the time has almost come. Death Stranding development ended today, according to Hideo Kojima, and the game has gone gold. The game will, as planned, be releasing on November 8 of this year on the Playstation 4 and other platforms that it was being developed for.
Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima’s first game since he was fired from Konami, a highly controversial incident that Konami paid dearly for. However, now under Sony’s umbrella and with full creative control, Kojima has come back with a vengeance and given birth to one of the most-anticipated games of the year.
Death Stranding, a game that ever since its announcement has been the topic of intense speculation about its story and world, focuses on Sam Bridger, a deliveryman who is working to attempt ot bring the scattered enclaves of a post-apocalyptic United States back together.
Threatening him along the way are monsters known only as BTs, and a terrorist group known as Homo Demens who wish to devastate the world even more. While we still don’t truly know the plot of the game beyond that, knowing how Hideo Kojima thinks it will quite likely be absolutely bonkers.
Death Stranding development has been a mystery to many for the entirety of its existence; trailers would often pop up without notice at big gaming events to confuse people even further, and it’s only this year that we got an actual story trailer that attempted to explain things.
While we’ve gotten some idea of how Death Stranding will play, and how the game’s multiplayer will work, it’s still being kept very tightly under wraps exactly what the game will be like when we actually play it, though we have gotten gameplay clips.
Either way, with Death Stranding development over, you can expect it to come to the Playstation 4 on November 8 of this year.
