Hideo Kojima is back again in 2019 with directing another ambiguous game a long time after the termination of Konami back in 2015. Came late, came strong, Hideo is changing the arc of gaming experience by his new project named Death Stranding.
The trailer looks promising and when the Japanese video game designer and the director is on board it’s absolute that gamers can expect much more. Death Stranding was announced in E3 2016 and since then it has generated global buzz. The action game is developed by Kojima Productions and distributed by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
On a post made in the Play Station blog, Hideo Kojima revealed the official synopsis of the video-game, ‘People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation. Death Stranding could be a utterly new variety of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so all parts, 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 expertise enjoying the sport, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.’
The trailer for the game has been dropped and fans, as well as developers, are in bit confusion about the genre of the game. Hideo Koshima made a twitter post clearly mention it is neither a stealth game nor it is an FPS shooting game.
This open world action-adventure game includes a character named Sam Porter Bridges. A player controls Sam Porter Bridges to tour across the demolished swamp for saving the left humanity from obliteration. Death Stranding events have been started along with the world after an unknown explosion shook the world.
Also, the PlayStation official page of the game mentions that asynchronous multiplayer is going to be a vital part. The page reads, “Help other travelers without ever crossing paths via asynchronous online gameplay. Send supplies, share safe houses and walk in the footsteps of fellow couriers to reunite civilization.”
Death Stranding comes in PlayStation 4 on 8th November 2019.
