Death Stranding Introduces Troy Baker's Character

A brand-new video from Death Stranding shown at Tokyo Game Show 2018 presentation reveals Troy Baker's character in the game.

The last time we had a peak at the upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding was at E3 2018 press conference, where we saw an ever expanding cast with some more details on the main character.

For long, there was no more update regarding development progress of the game and developer Kojima Productions has been working with their heads down until they got us something spectacular to show at the recent stage of Tokyo Game Show 2018.

Today, Kojima Productions have showcased a brand-new trailer titled "The Man in The Golden Mask" that introduces Troy Baker's character to the game.

Opening of the video shows Sam Porter Bridges headed for another of his deliveries with a human female on his back and we get our first-look at the character Troy Baker (Mortal Kombat X, Resident Evil 6) is playing who comes out of nowhere greeting the protagonist.

He wears a golden skull-mask and sports a look similar to Psycho Mantis-esque figure we saw in the teaser trailer. Their conversation suggests that these two have crossed paths before in the game and that definitely wasn't pleasant for the protagonist.

The mysterious antagonist then takes off his mask and hit the ground with it for some deathly spirits to appear around within a swirl of black goo at his feet and then hold the mask in the air above to conjure up a giant Hellhound-like beast wearing a golden mask.

While laughing, he warns that the beast looks hungry and the only way to make it out alive is to not getting eaten by it. Leaving Sam Porter to deal with it, he then disappears putting his mask back on, leaving the fate of this confrontation unknown.

Aside from already having a superstar cast on board, game director Hideo Kojima recruited Emily O'Brien (Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, League of Legends) and Troy Baker back in February for his most anticipating upcoming release.

Also, voice actor Tommie Earl Jenkins (Patriot Games, The Bourne Identity) have confirmed his involvement in the game and revealed the news seven months after being cast via a recent Tweet which includes an artwork of his character.
