After hours of teasing through a cryptic Twitch stream, Hideo Kojima unveiled his next game today, Death Stranding, will be launched on PS4 on November 8.
The long stream contained a series of handprints for what looked like gameplay material, although it was difficult to tell what was going on, what fits what we have seen so far from the game. As the stream continued and captured viewers, more of the images became visible. The stream was linked to the slogan & # 39; the world is in your hands & # 39; and it ended with the release date news along with a new trailer with the main cast including – yes – that scary baby. The trailer gave a few glimpses of the right gameplay, which apparently will revolve around rebuilding a destroyed society while fighting angry people in dangerous suits and sneaking past ghostly creatures in a dark forest. It seems as confusing as ever.
Death Stranding was first unveiled in 2016 as the first major Kojima project since its widely published departure from Konami and the Metal Gear Solid series, including the cancellation of the expected reboot Silent hills. Since then we have seen a series of disturbing and deliberately strange trailers for the game with artists like Norman Reedus, Guillermo del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen. The most recent clip of last year's E3 brought Léa Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner together with the first glimpse of the real game.
Death Stranding is still largely a mystery, but at least we know when we can finally play it. Meanwhile, the other high-profile exclusives of the PS4 – Spirit of Tsushima and The last of us: part II – still no release dates.
