For most of the morning, PlayStation was streaming a partially obscured version of Death Stranding on their Twitch channel. We all knew this was simply a Prelude to something big, and now the other shoe had dropped courtesy the PlayStation Blog. That's right, tons of news is out now including the release date (November 8th) a new trailer and how many editions (FOUR!) of the game will be available for preorder along with pricing and rewards.
In addition, to answer the "What" is this game, a special message from Hideo Kojima was released:
People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation.
“Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.
Now, please enjoy the latest Death Stranding trailer.
