Death Stranding May Come to PC

After a timed exclusive period on PlayStation 4, Hideo Kojima's upcoming masterpiece Death Stranding may come to PC.

After action focused PlayStation 4 game Death Stranding has revealed its upcoming release date lately, a new rumor starting spreading around that it may also be coming to PC and that is something people are wondering for a while.

Italian journalist Antonio Fucito recently hints on a Twitch stream that the game is speculated to have a timed PS4 exclusivity period of around six months or so and then a PC version is very much possible to happen if not 100% confirmed.

He already established his credentials with sources earlier when he posted the game's release date 24 hours ahead of reveal on Twitter.

Fucito also reflected on its box art not featuring "Only on PlayStation" branding because DS will probably arrive on PC on a later date but there won't be an Xbox One version. He is not sure if it will remain exclusive for six month or a whole year though.

We have yet to have a confirmation from developer Kojima Productions and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment if any of his claims are true but he never has claimed once that any of this information he shared is concrete.

Even before Kojima Productions and Sony came up with a definitive title for their team-up effort, there was mention of a PC release in a now-deleted Medium Q&A post by EU community manager of PlayStation back in 2015.

That being said, Sony has never marketed Death Stranding as a PS4-exclusive, even in promo arts. Considering how Quantic Dream studio has brought their PlayStation games to PC most recently, there surely is some loophole in exclusivity term.

Besides, game director Hideo Kojima and his studio are using Decima Engine from Guerrilla Games, which is owned by Sony and Kojima wouldn't be able to resist much if they decide to release the game on PC at a later date.

Antonio Fucito clarified that Death Stranding coming to PC is not 100% confirmed as its release date, which he knew in advance. His speculated solely based on lack of an exclusivity logo on box and initial announcement of 2015 but he is still pretty sure about his claim.

Kojima Productions have released new Death Stranding trailer for PS4 and it will be available on November 8.

For long, upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding by legendary video game director Hideo Kojima has kept itself from dropping new images or footages but then came an announcement for something big on May 29.

Today, developer Kojima Productions and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has finally made an anticipated reveal of a brand-new gameplay video and its official release date, which is set to arrive on November 8, 2019 for PS4.

An almost nine minute-long trailer opens up with protagonist Sam Porter Bridges wandering around in a post-apocalyptic world that has been ravaged by mysterious entities only referred to as BTs and society has been collapsed long ago.

We see brief glimpse of gameplay here and there that showcases Sam engaging with enemies in hand-to-hand combat and even using stuffs at his disposal. Mechanics that are solely focused on helping him on exploration are also shed lights onto.

French actress Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) is playing a character named Fragile who is confronted by Higgs, played by Troy Baker (Mortal Kombat X, Resident Evil 6), who is leader of a separatist group called "Homo Demons".

First look at actor Tommie Earl Jenkins (Patriot Games, The Bourne Identity) playing a mysterious character named Die-Hardman is revealed and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) appears as Deadman.

New character Mama and Heartman are being played by actress Margaret Qualley (Death Note, The Leftovers) and Danish film director Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Valhalla Rising) respectively in their yet to be specified important roles.

Amelie was probably someone who was trying to find "Strand" or connection before Sam and is played by Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman, Six Million Dollar Man) while Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) portrays Cliff.

Sam is obviously portrayed by actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead), who is working in teams with Die-Hardman and Deadman. He uses a Bridge Baby to perhaps maintain link between past and present just in case.

Cliff is first shown to have been talking to one of the Bridge Babies before becoming a black-goo soaked revenant-like entity with a connection to something greater than himself but apparently, Higgs too can access the same link.

Sony Reveals PlayStation 5 Console Plans

Mark Cerny of Sony outlines what hardware features to expect from next-gen PlayStation console.

Rumors are going around among gaming communities for some time that Sony Interactive Entertainment has been working on next-generation PlayStation console for some time and people are already calling it PlayStation 5 despite any official confirmation.

Apparently, they were working on it for past four years now and most recently, lead system architect Mark Cerny spilled some beans about some planned outlines for the hardware in an exclusive interview with monthly magazine Wired.

Sony plans for their next video game console to be powered by CPU based third-generation AMD Ryzen line of processor and GPU based on Radeon Navi series, a custom variant to support ray tracing and up to 8K resolutions.

Ray tracing allows for simulating complex 3D environments and is common in Hollywood for visual effects. Some companies are trying to employ it for their high-end processors like Nvidia RTX line but no console was able to handle it so far.

Although the method is mostly used for graphical aesthetics of rendering objects more accurately to maintain realism, it can dramatically change audio experience as well, such as enemies being able to hear players' footsteps and all.

Next-gen PlayStation consoles will be using a solid-state drive for utilizing its speedy bandwidth to significantly decrease loading time of games and delivering faster online multiplayer experience than ever before.

RELATED: PlayStation State of Play, March 2019

Also, it will be backwards compatible for PS4 games and comes with PlayStation VR support but Cerny did not drop further details on their future plans for VR yet. Nor did he talk about any services or other features other than hardware specs.

Generally, Sony would have a keynote presentation at E3 in June but since they are skipping the annual game show for this year, our best guess is that any brand-new State of Play episode of their broadcast will most likely do that.

Some of most-anticipated PS4 titles of 2019 like Death Stranding from Kojima Productions, Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch and The Last of Us Part II from Naughty Dog can probably see a two-platform release by debuting on PS5 later to span across generations.

Though developer kits are handed to a number of game studios to work on their upcoming titles, Sony has yet to reveal an official release date for PlayStation 5 and assured that it will not launch in stores within 2019 but we can always wait for 2020.

Death Stranding Confirmed for 2019 by Best Buy?

According to listing of the game on Best Buy, Hideo Kojima's long-awaited title Death Stranding maybe releasing in 2019.

During mid-November 2018, a Brazilian website suggested citing an anonymous source that we are about to get an official release date for upcoming action game Death Stranding by video game legend Hideo Kojima at The Game Awards 2018 event.

Unfortunately, that never happened as the man himself announced on Twitter that he couldn't make it this time. However, social media was curious for any clues regarding the release date and according to Best Buy, the game is coming in 2019.

Even if the listing is to be taken seriously, we are still in the dark about exactly when it is going to drop because aside from a release year of 2019, it has nothing else. The only reason we take this leak seriously because of Kojima also teasing of launching it this year.

In an interview with video game magazine Famitsu back in December 2018, he asked whether 2019 is the year of the Whale, even though it actually is the year of the pig. Since people saw whales in the promotion of his game, they have reason to believe this to be a tease for a launch date.

RELATED: Death Stranding E3 Gameplay Revealed

What we are estimating right now is that we may get another look at it at E3 2019 with more footage and then finally releasing the game within the next few months after that, most possibly somewhere around October. Nothing is set in stone though.

Action oriented Death Stranding is an upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive title from Kojima Productions and Sony Entertainment that was revealed back in 2016 and is considered as one of the most-anticipated video game titles ever.

Death Stranding Rumored to Announce Release Date?

Rumor has it that Sony will announce a release date for Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding at The Game Awards 2018.

It all begin at the E3 2016, when former Digital Entertainment president of Konami, Hideo Kojima took the stage to reveal his upcoming action game project Death Stranding from his studio Kojima Productions and people who know of his work lost their minds.

He also revealed that the game is going to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment and will be a PlayStation 4-exclusive. No official release date has been given so far for the game but rumors are suggesting an announcement on that with new footage is on the way.

After shooting down the possibility of attending E3 2019, Sony opted out from this year's PlayStation Experience claiming they don't have enough to show off even though they have both Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima in development.

According to Brazilian website Combo Infinito, they have learned from someone close to Sony Brazil that Sony may showcase trailers for the above-mentioned titles at The Game Awards 2018 and reveal release dates for the games.

RELATED: Death Stranding E3 Gameplay Revealed

None of these buzz brings any absolute evidence to the table but it's not like Sony ever made such big announcements during a show like this and given the relationship Geoff Keighley of The Game Awards has with Kojima, it wouldn't be shocking if Sony does so.

From the very moment of revealing back in 2016, Hideo Kojima has kept the story of Death Stranding as a mystery to everyone. However, that never stopped people from theorizing about it. Do you really think that Sony would announce the game's official release date at The Game Awards 2018?

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.

Initially film director and close friend Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), actor Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) were cast by Kojima in various roles of the game.

French actress Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) and Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman, Six Million Dollar Man) also made short appearance in the E3 2018 gameplay trailer in their unspecified roles.

Death Stranding E3 Gameplay Revealed

Hideo Kojima is back with another Death Stranding trailer that features a first look at gameplay but still doesn't make much sense.

It's been two years since 2016 that video game genius Hideo Kojima has been teasing us and then leaving us wanting more for more of his upcoming much anticipated action game Death Stranding, which is an exclusive for PlayStation 4.

With this one, we are seeing creator of Metal Gear Solid series make a huge comeback and Kojima has something special to show off. Just as predicted, he releases another trailer of the game at E3 2018 conference too blow everyone's mind again.

This marks to be the third trailer that came out for Death Stranding and for the first time in a long while, we get to see a few gameplay moments.




The first teaser that came in 2016 and we got to know that actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) is going to be playing the role of protagonist in it.

Then at TGA 2016, another footage released where we saw film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) and actor Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) both playing important roles to the story. A few months earlier, Emily O'Brien and Troy Baker has also joined the cast.

Apparently "Porter" and "Bridges" words from previously released clips and poster doesn't indicate to any organization but they in fact belong to the character Reedus is playing, who goes by the name Sam Porter Bridges.

This trailer has started with a cinematic opening, then we see a bit of gameplay with different camera angles and then it cuts back to story before switching back to actual playing sequence again. The blend between these moments is naturally meshed to perfection.

The gameplay moments suggests it involves a lot of climbing and scaling to canyons, jungles, mountains and rivers as the story progresses. Sam travels these unfriendly regions to make deliveries of boxes in backpacks, tight-wrapped dead bodies and what not.

While carrying a baby in a pod, he goes from one place to another because he can sense those mysterious shadow entities approaching that has taken over the world and can come back if they happen to eat him alive.

The female character played by French actress Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) who talks to Sam in the beginning, seems to have almost the same gift as Sam but maybe better and she seems to know a lot about what's going on than he does.

It appears that he can sense those creatures, whereas she is able to even see them. She offers him to work for her which he gently declines and then called him by his name before departing to his ultimate surprise.

New revelation regarding the threats of that world is likely to be race of extraterrestrials in form of some sort of shadow demons. These near-invisible floating entities causes to rain whenever they appear, which is called "Timefall" and whatever it touches, ages rapidly.

We previously saw that happening to Sam's colleagues in the last trailer before they were devoured. Though not visible, they do leave footprints on ground that resembles to a webbed foot of a giant frog.

The importance of silence in their presence is brought up by the new female lead once again and we think it hints us that stealth will be a very important aspect of the game. They often ignore sounds but do react to breathing for some unknown reason.

Also, whenever one of those beings touches someone or eats them, they die but some people have the ability to come back. So does Sam but when he does, it causes a massive nuclear-like explosion that leaves a massive crater.

This means, she can come back from dead as well with same side effects. The second female lead introduced near the end of the clip was actress Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman, Six Million Dollar Man), who reveals almost nothing about her role except a connection to Sam.

Despite making more scenes public, Kojima has still left the fans wandering in a maze they were in since the first teaser, proving this is how you showcase a game. He definitely has a creative but weird and beautiful world in his mind for Death Stranding, which he slowly revealing like puzzle pieces.

This project is being developed by his independent game developing studio Kojima Productions. As a plus side of this new reveal, we got our hands on tons of brand-new screens and posters of the game.

Kojima Teasing Another Death Stranding Trailer?

Ahead of E3 2018 conference, Hideo Kojima maybe teasing to drop another trailer for his upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Death Stranding.

Twitter is a great source of news these days and who better knows this than fans of video games and movies? Whether it's about an announcement of an upcoming project or some leak reveal, you will always find it there.

Major developers and publishers also like to tease the fans on this platform too. Video game legend Hideo Kojima is no different as well and looks like he is hinting at another massive reveal for his PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding.

Since E3 is near, we can take his hints seriously this time because the founder of independent game developing studio Kojima Productions has been teasing his fans on Twitter with a series of photos showing how he is busy with editing some game footage.

Kojima is mostly known to many as the creator of Metal Gear Solid, which he created during his time in Konami. Then at Sony's E3 2016 conference, he announced Death Stranding which has no official release date set yet.




Many have speculated that Death Stranding would be one of Kojima's best works ever because he is now free from any corporate restrains and a self-governing entity. What we saw up to this point from mysterious black ooze, babies inside human throat and a cryptic version of Psycho Mantis.

Then there are giant floating creatures only to tell us that we haven't seen them all. It is best to assume that Kojima san has still a lot of strange imagery under his sleeve to catch us off-guard and throw us off-balance.

Sony has announced lately that they will be focusing on their upcoming video game titles at E3 2018 and being one of the most anticipated upcoming titles, Death Stranding would surely be there.

So, whatever we saw Kojima is doing wearing that Planet of the Apes t-shirt while sitting beside a Godzilla statue in his Twitter photos, we probably won't be disappointed. Even the baby from the game we saw earlier is showing thumbs up to anyone who's watching, although nothing else is shown.

We are also riddled with the question that if we are going to see some more celebrity appearances in the next event for the game. Hopefully, E3 2018 will introduce another renowned celeb linked with to increase the hype. It could be Emily O'Brien and Troy Baker, who recently joined the game's ever-growing cast.

Up until now, we know that film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), actors Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) are already tied with this project, which made everyone curious.

Death Stranding Key Poster Released

If you people are well aware of who Hideo Kojima is, then you must also know that this fellow is a master of developing mind-bending video games that creates all sorts of buzzes and makes history. He's intending to do that once more with his forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive release Death Stranding from his very own Kojima Productions. He started messing with our minds from back in 2016 and now he has taken a step further by releasing a wickedly bizarre trailer.

Well, just as soon as the trailer dropped and everyone was just recovering from having their mind-blown by the pure chaotic wickedness, Hideo Kojima took his personal Twitter account to reveal the new key visual art for the game.



Playing the role of the protagonist of Death Stranding called Sam, actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) is on the primary focal point of the two posters. Both of these posters are designed in a movie-like fashion and while there are similarities in them, they are still apart. Like the first one have a close focus on Sam and the baby but the second one, despite picking the same frame has set in slight distance.

Reedus’ character is looking at the distance and probably observing the gigantic alien creatures that have taken two of his team-mates moments ago and he is holding a pod which one of his fallen colleagues dropped moments before he was taken. While the antenna-like flashlight gear attached to his back is fixed onto something, the baby he is holding inside the pod is looking straightly at the viewers.

I say, since maestro Kojima has introduced breaking of the fourth wall in video games, the baby looking straight to the viewer may be a nod to that. I mean, at this point every other eager fan is trying to piece out the clues to make some sort of sense out for this game as Hideo Kojima is playfully dropping them so often these days, anything could just mean everything!

Of course, everyone was happy that they are getting something new from Death Stranding after a long time but people were less happy after witnessing the 8-minutes of wickedness with everything that is involved to the world Kojima is creating. All we can say is that, something fascinating is coming our way and we don't even have a release date but the upcoming PlayStation Experience event may change that.

Death Stranding Teaser Trailer

Video game mastermind Hideo Kojima is mostly known as the creator of Metal Gear Solid, which he created during his time in Konami. Following his departure from the company, his fans were worried for sometime thinking if the maestro will ever return into the biz. He did with his very own Kojima Productions and announced of releasing a PlayStation 4 exclusive action video game titled Death Stranding last year.

Death Stranding – Teaser Trailer – TGA 2017

From the very moment players have known about the existence of Death Stranding, everyone was excited as hell as Kojima himself was involved in the project. Next, when the news of the involvement of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) to the game came out, people simply started losing their minds.

To throw the Kojima fan-base off their seats, Kojima Productions have dropped the new teaser trailer for Death Stranding. We would like to warn you in advance that the following footage is disturbing and can be extremely messy for your psyche (I already lost mine a little). So, viewers beware.




The clip starts with showing Norman Reedus’ character Sam stranded on a barren place where he wakes up with two other crews in a secret operation that clearly has gone wrong and one of them is half-stuck under a vehicle. Suddenly the gear on the shoulder of one of his fellow team members starts signaling like crazy for something on their way and as the crew panics, Sam suggests that they don't even breathe. Then we see an invisible creature approaching towards a body-bag near Sam while leaving lizard-like foot mark behind.

The body-bag seemingly melts into some black goo and the creature move towards Sam as he is bleeding. Then as his wounded teammate makes a noise, it quickly gets him and the other crew shot him to spare him a horrific fate. He throws a pod containing a baby to Sam before trying to shoot him but failed and then tried to stab himself to death. Left behind as the only witness of this carnage, Sam sees some extra terrestrial life-forms floating around him and all he sees is extinction all around.

This is so far we know about Death Stranding for now and there is no apparent release date announced yet. Even though people are familiar with the fact that master Kojima likes to play with our head every once in a while, the Death Stranding clip may have done that a little too much considering this is just a teaser trailer. So, God knows what else is up ahead!

After leaving Konami, modern master of game making, Hideo Kojima founded his very own Kojima Productions. He announced a new game from his own production house titled Death Stranding on June, 2016. What we know up until this point is that the game will feature the appearance of director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), actor Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead).

Cryptic “Bridges” Poster

Everyone eagerly waiting to hear anything from him thought that the game will be previewed this year on Electronic Entertainment Expo but unfortunately, that's not happening anytime soon. However Kojima Productions apologized to the fans with a cryptic poster, which Hideo Kojima himself also posted saying he cannot give up any more info than this.



Now, as soon as he revealed the poster to tease the fans, many got busy to theorize the image and its cryptic nature. The poster contains in bold letters, the word "BRIDGES" under a spider-web appears on a black background. As Kojima apparently isn't willing to unveil anything more and fans have a quite long time up ahead to wait for the game, they become overzealous and came up with the idea that it means actor Jeff Bridges (Arachnophobia, R.I.P.D.) will be in Death Stranding.

REVEALED: Death Stranding Revealed

While this theory cannot be brushed-off just yet, some theorists on Reddit pointed out that there is a "BRIDGES" connection that can be found in the Death Stranding teaser trailer released at The Game Awards 2016. Del Toro's badge on the lapel reads "BRIDGES - United Cities of America". Also note that the dot of the badge is on New York City, which could also mean that the crisis hit at NYC first or it is one of the last remaining cities unaffected by the catastrophe.

Now, "BRIDGES" might be an organization that Guillermo del Toro's character works for and they are working on some sort of metaphorical bridges perhaps. Also, it could be a division created by United Cities of America to establish some kind of connection. The "BRIDGES" could be between time and space or even consciousness. There is also a possibility of them being the one responsible for creating the Homo Ludens’ spacesuit.

Most probably none of these theories means nothing that Hideo Kojima hinted at or have nothing to do with Death Stranding at all. All we can do is for him to drop some more tease so that someone could possibly figure something out of it as we are pretty damn sure that maestro himself is gonna keep his lips sealed on it and let everyone argue all they want. These days, Kojima Productions is awfully busy with the development of the game while collaborating with the likes of Del Toro, Mikkelsen and Reedus.

Death Stranding Teaser

Previously, Hideo Kojima dropped the bomb on the eager fans on E3 2016 by releasing the reveal trailer for his next project Death Stranding but honestly, many who have seen the trailer is still gazed and confused about what to make of it yet. He returns to take the stage at The Game Awards to show us something weird once again. Yup, he did it again. He just dropped another cryptic trailer for Death Stranding that will left people in chock and awe.

Kojima Productions have already bagged actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) for Death Stranding. Now, involvement of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as two other important character has been revealed through the teaser as well.

Below is the recently released teaser that Kojima have unleashed at The Game Awards 2016 and it surely adds more with the already piled bank of mystery.




We see Guillermo del Toro's character is running through a lot of dead sea life towards a bridge dressed like some sort of official while fighter planes fly over. He has a neurosurgical scar on his forehead and is holding a pod of some sort as he looks frightened looking at those planes. One of the planes flew his way as he headed towards the bridge. Form under the bridge, he sees a convoy of soldiers marching forward who definitely appears odd and they have a tank that has tentacles coming out of it.

Just as they passed by, black gooey liquid drips over the bridge which goes unnoticed by the guy and he activates the pod. We see a baby inside who opens the right eye. Inside the tunnel under the bridge, five skeletal soldiers comes out of dark and we see them all linked with cords to their leader; Mads Mikkelsen's character. By the looks of their attitude, it's fairly evident that they are after the baby and their leader gives a pretty devilish smile.

Right after revealing the clip, Industry Icon Award winner Hideo Kojima twitted two brand-new posters of the game featuring both Guillermo del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen's character.



So far, the reveal trailer has hinted us that something extraterrestrial is at work here and now this. Looks like advanced science have collided with magic or something very mystical. Since, Kojima shares his likeness for mysterious stuff just as much as his collaborator Del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen is in fact one of his most favorite actors, this one is surely going to turn out to be a homerun situation.

A brand-new trailer for Death Stranding was revealed by Kojima himself just to let us know what he's been up to and the game will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Two brand-new posters are also released afterwards the trailer clip was dropped as reveal art.




The trailer opens up with William Blake quotes from Auguries of Innocence about heaven and eternity. Then the shot goes to a frame that quickly moves forward over a dry-sandy beach with dead crabs lying all around. We see giant lizard-like palm print on the sand that is immediately filled with water but no creature is visible. It stops near a naked man wearing handcuffs that blinks and there is also a baby connected to him via a cord!

The man slowly picks the baby up to his arms and breaks into tears of agony. The baby suddenly disappears leaving black gooey handprints on his legs. Marks of a c-section performing is visible in his lower abdomen as he completely stands up and looks up at the distance, where hundreds of dead fish along with a few dead whale are seen all connected to some sort of cords and then there are five beings are seen seemingly floating around as the clip cuts off.

Upon Kojima's departure from Konami, his fans were really worried if they would ever see the master of mind-bending game-making will ever return. The king indeed has returned and as an added surprise, he brought actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) into the game, for providing voice and appearance capturing to portray his in-game character. Set to be an open-world action game, Death Stranding still haven't announced or hinted any release date.
