Kojima Productions has unleashed the much-anticipated Death Stranding launch trailer for your consumption. Creator Hideo Kojima has been teasing the trailer for a while now, having prepared the footage personally ahead of the game’s release in early November.
Keep in mind that the trailer contains spoilers, and it’s pretty lengthy at over seven minutes long.
Death Stranding Launch Trailer
Have a gander at the Death Stranding launch trailer below.
Kojima-san confirmed yesterday that Death Stranding will be coming to the PC in summer 2020, although the game is still a console-exclusive to the PS4.
Death Stranding was first announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, some six months after Hideo Kojima departed Konami. The game was largely shrouded in mystery for the next couple of years, and all that we got to see of the game were jar babies, lots of lush scenery, and Norman Reedus’ naked backside.
Kojima-san has recently revealed that he may need to produce a sequel to Death Stranding in order to establish what he calls the ‘Strand’ genre of video games. In addition, he Metal Gear creator also said he’d like to work with Keanu Reeves at some point, too.
In addition to Reedus, Death Stranding also features Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo Del Toro, and cameos from Geoff Keighley and Conan O’ Brien.
There’s a lot riding on Death Stranding, especially as it’s Kojima’s first game since he completed Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain back in 2015. I’m still not even sure what the game is all about, but that’s the beauty of Kojima, right?
Here’s the full synopsis:
In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the globe, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With otherworldly creatures plaguing the landscape, and mass extinction imminent, it’s up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation.
