Good luck understanding Death Stranding after its new trailer

Wednesday, 13 Jun, 2018

Today, that all changes, as a new trailer was revealed during Sony's E3 press conference, showing off what look to be gameplay footage. We've had a heap of insane visuals to go with the game but nothing that really shows us how it would play. The device seems to be hooked up to the baby that he is delivering to somewhere. Bridges climbs mountains with attractive motion capture making it seem more realistic than most games, but is mostly trying to survive the elements and environment, which seem to be out to destroy life.

The trailer also adds Lea Seydoux and Lindsey Wagner to the cast, but sadly had nothing to say on any kind of release window. Interestingly, characters other than Reedus are shown carrying out similar explorations, and numerous slides throughout the trailer highlighted cooperation or interaction. "Two goddesses, Lindsay Wagner and Léa Seydoux", Kojima wrote. But don't take our word for it, watch the eight-minute trailer yourself and see if you can spot anything interesting to share. A typical hero is usually some sort of elite or someone with a military background. Sam refers to himself as a delivery man in the trailer, too. Someone with a skillset akin to a blue-collar worker. "Herein lies our challenge, to create both a new form of gameplay and a hero that has never been done before".

Since its initial announcement, Death Stranding has been a constant enigma for gamers to puzzle over. Very awesome work by the team.
