Kojima Productions has shared a lengthy 50 minutes worth of gameplay footage from Death Stranding giving fans an in-depth look at the game.
Death Stranding is a brand new IP from Kojima Productions that they are developing exclusively for the PS4. This new game has a strange concept that is not easy to grasp. At its core, it is a mere walking simulator but with a lot of different gameplay mechanics that are in place to support combat, traversal, and more. The storytelling happens in a trademark Kojima style with lengthy cutscenes.
After the gameplay demo at Gamescom, a lot of fans were anxious to find out more about the game. Kojima had promised a lengthy gameplay demo which is just one of the many demonstrations that will happen until the launch of the game in November. In the demonstration today, we can see a good chunk of the gameplay loop.
Ahead of the gameplay, there was a new briefing trailer shared that gives an overview of the story and concepts present in Death Stranding. This was first leaked through and off-camera recording and now it is available in high-quality through official channels.
Death Stranding has multiple retail editions and a release date set for later in November. It is out exclusively for the PS4 but there has been some doubt over a potential PC version later down the line. Kojima has used the Decima Engine developed by Guerrilla Games to create this new IP.
The game has an all-star Hollywood cast with Léa Seydoux, Mad Mikkelson, Lindsey Wagner, and Margaret Qualley. The supporting cast also includes Guillermo Del. Toro and Troy Baker. The game is slated for a launch on November 8, 2019.
