Since they have added real-life renowned actors like Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead), it may drive interest of movie fans to this game.

Earlier this year, many casual gamers and so-called critics were desperately crying for an Easy Mode for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice by developer From Software, debating about accessibility in video games through extreme difficulty levels.

Although that very point was debunked by a quadriplegic player showed how there is no need for difficulty settings. Though it took some efforts on his part but he eventually managed to defeat notorious boss Corrupted Monk like a true champ.

Kojima himself was opposed to that idea of difficulty levels as well and even let players become undetectable to enemies in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for wearing a silly chicken hat, which would let them play on easier settings.

He probably had a change of heart for adding a Very Easy Mode and movie-goer people who would be able to immerse into Death Stranding experience just because of that will surely appreciate him considering an easier difficulty.
