Death Stranding is finally on.
Let’s explore the gorgeous landscape of the stranded world with Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus.
After the disbandment of Kojima Productions from Hideo Kojima in 2015, they have finally released their first game Death Stranding for the PlayStation 4 by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Famous actors including Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen have provided motion capture, 3D scanning, and vocal performances, while film directors Guillermo del Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn also took part in the creation of the game.
In the game, players acting as the main character Sam Bridges is tasked with delivering cargo to various isolated cities known as KNOTs and is evaluated by the company and recipients based on their performance (including “likes” similar to social networks). The player’s main enemies include otherworldly creatures known as “beached things” (BTs), as well as MULE—a cult of rogue, bandit-like porters who attempt to steal other porters’ cargo and deliver it themselves.
Apart from PS4, the game is also scheduled for release on Microsoft Windows by 505 Games in 2020.
