Back in 2015, Hideo Kojima, the creator behind the Metal Gear Solid series, parted ways with Japanese game company, Konami. With a new partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment, Kojima unveiled a new game called DEATH STRANDING, which stars Norman Reedus, who's best known for The Walking Dead series. Back then, we don't know much about the game, including its launch date… until now. I think.
I mean, we now know what the game will entail, thanks to the newly-released trailer this morning: wide-open landscapes; the UX… we're also privy to additional casting in the game ("Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn plays 'Heartman'? Okay.") and we get a better sense of the story, one that's about "reconnect[ing] isolated cities and a fragmented society".
But the trailer does leave a lot of questions like, 'what happened to America?', 'what's the deal with the baby in the canister?' and I wanna know how to get in touch with my emotions like the characters in the game.
Like, I want to know what it's like to have feelings and shit.
Do you need to delve into your past and dredge up some horrible moment? Is it onions? A malfunctioning tear duct? A really dusty atmosphere?
Digital pre-orders start on 30 May. The game will be available as your Standard Digital Edition Blu-ray (SGD79.90) but it also comes as a Special Edition (SGD97.90) and Deluxe Digital Edition (SGD108.90). And then there is the motherload—the Collector's Edition but pricing and where to get it will come at a later date.
DEATH STRANDING is only available as a PS4 exclusive and is slated for a November 8, 2019 release.
