Death Stranding is one of the most anticipated games right now and even though we do not have a release date for the game, it is expected that it will release some time this year. We have learned that Death Stranding is going to be an emotional game. Norman Reedus and Hideo Kojima confirmed that the players might cry due to the decisions that they need to make.
Kojima also talked about how connection is an important theme in Death Stranding. He mentioned that in the game, the player will need to reconnect the world. This seems to be very interesting indeed. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
The player will have to reconnect the world in the game. You’re very alone, there’s solitude, but you’re trying to connect. The story and the gameplay, the keyword is ‘connection.’ There are so many things in-between, of course, but the key is connection.
Kojima mentioned that compared to the games that we have seen so far, Death Stranding is going to be really different. There is a lot of hype around this title and even though we have seen some footage we do not really know what it is about and what we can expect to see. Kojima went on to mention the following about connection in Death Stranding:
I also threw in a really new idea. You’re connecting the game, and everyone is playing it together, and you’ll be connected, everyone will be connected together as well. I can’t say anything because Sony will be very unhappy. I don’t want to be disconnected from Sony.
This could be a hint at multiplayer but we are not sure at this point. With Kojima, anything is possible and we will have to wait and see that this game is really about and whether or not it lives up to the hype.
Sony is not going to be at E3 2019 so we might not be able to learn more about the game at the Expo but Kojima did mention that we could learn more in a month or due during the Tribeca Film Festival. Right now, all we know for sure is that the game is playable in some form.
Let us know what you think about Death Stranding and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it comes out.
