Hideo Kojima has been making masterpieces in the gaming industry since quite long ago with his successful Metal Gear Solid Franchise, Hideo knows how to make the perfect game and that’s exactly what he’s doing with the new Sony PlayStation exclusive (reportedly) title known as The “Death Stranding”
We already saw some of the teaser trailers in previous E3 shows, and the suspense of the game keeps on getting better and better since people don’t really know what the game is about, except for the premade speculations
Now, Death stranding is returning to Sony’s E3 2018 press conference with another grand, wild, bizarre look. Hideo Kojima of Kojima Productions wasn’t on hand to introduce it so instead, they brought something just as good: gameplay.
The headline of the new trailer was Norman Reedus’ character Sam Bridges, the protagonist of the game. We saw him in a rainy, jungle-like environment trying to survive. Including climbing mountains, carrying a heavy sort of life pack — in which he holds a tiny baby, encased in a synthetic fictional womb — and even brutally pulling off an infected toenail.
In the latest trailer, we actually got to see the gameplay of Death Stranding for the first time ever. We can see bridges walking up those mountains and making his way painfully through an intense rainstorm. His mission appears to be saving people who have been taken hostage by mysterious forces. We’ve seen those before, too; they were included in a trailer released last year.
Besides the gameplay, we also met two new characters in the new trailer. The first character we get to see is played by Lea Seydoux, who walks and talks in circles around Bridges and eats what appears to be an alive maggot at the trailer’s end. The second one is Lindsay Wagner, whose role is even more uncertain.
Death Stranding is going to be the first game released by Kojima Productions, the studio formed by Kojima after he had some bitter issues, causing them to part ways in late 2015. We still have no idea when of course. But at least we know it’s playable now.
