You won’t need to wait until November 8th to find out whether Kojima Productions’ upcoming title is a hit or miss. According to the latest news, the Death Stranding review embargo will lift on the 1st of the month. Brace yourselves for the ratings.
Metacritic has announced the official review embargo lift for Death Stranding. Their related post on Instagram is now deleted but it was enough to let the word spread around. Sony has a “killing spree” of high rated exclusive titles, with Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War and Detroit: Become Human paving the road for more to come.
Regarding the review embargo on Death Stranding, it officially lifts on 1 November 2019 at 09:00 SAT (12:00 PT). There is basically a whole week until the game releases. This is the case with God of War last year and it was worth it. Sony seems to be confident about the game’s ratings, believing that most reviews will be positive.
In related news, the ESRB ratings for Death Stranding are out. The game has an M 17+ tag, along with the features of blood, violence, nudity and strong language.
The description has also a few twists about the cutscenes. If what people close to the development team say is true, then we are looking at a game foreshadowing the evolution of the industry.
Mads Mikkelsen recently talked about Death Stranding and has revealed that video games are coming close to what movies have been fore years. However, he doesn’t think than one can destroy the other.
Sony Interactive President, Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that too by saying that Kojima’s upcoming title is something like “a well done Netflix original series”.
Stay tuned for SegmentNext’s own Death Stranding review when the embargo lifts. Until then, we’ll be covering all the latest news on the title. Note that the game releases on November 8th, exclusively on Playstation 4.
