Hideo Kojima teased news for Death Stranding for this week, but no-one could have guessed that the game would get a release date, but it did, the next epic from the famed creator will released exclusively on PlayStation 4 on November 8. A new trailer was released, but before you watch it, Hideo Kojima has written a message.
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.
