We have seen a lot since the announcement in 2016 Death Stranding via trailers, including the long new images from yesterday. At the time, however, it was not clear what exactly you were going to do in the game. And although we still have many questions, the official website of the game has been updated to give a better idea of what the moment-to-moment experience will be.
Firstly, here is the starting point for the post by Hideo KojimaMetal Gear Solid world:
In the near future, mysterious explosions have turned the whole world upside down and caused a series of supernatural events, known as the Death Stranding. With extraterrestrial beings plaguing the landscape and mass extinction threatening, it is up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the devastated wasteland and save humanity from impending destruction.
The object of the game is to "reunite a broken nation" while transporting an enormous amount of cargo, which apparently requires a variety of activities. Challenges include protecting your valuable things from bandits, avoiding strange monsters called Beached Things and finding ways to navigate the world by building bridges or finding new routes.
One of the most interesting aspects of the game is how it approaches death. Death Stranding will not have a typical "game over" screen. Instead, when you die, "you will find that you are in an inverse realm, looking for a way back to the living." It also sounds as if nonviolent approaches are not only possible but also encouraged. "Choose your fighting methods carefully, because killing your enemy is almost never the solution – and every death has consequences," says the site.
And last but not least, Death Stranding will also contain asynchronous multiplayer, which is very reminiscent of the Souls series. You will be able to help other players by sending them supplies or designating safe houses, and you will also have the opportunity to "follow in the footsteps of fellow couriers to reunite civilization."
Of course, even with those details, there is still a lot we don't know, but luckily the game finally has a release date. Death Stranding is coming to PS4 on November 8.
