Hideo Kojima was saved for the last of the Gamescom Opening Night Live event, and he delivered in spectacular fashion. Kojima entered the stage to thunderous applause and then revealed more about Guillermo del Toro’s Deadman character who tells us about the baby and its link to the mother.
Kojima further surprised everyone with exclusive gameplay footage which shows Norman Reedus’ Sam character asleep and then waking up and interacting with the world around him.
Speaking of surprises we got to see Sam urinating which seemed odd at first but has a specific function as it helps grow things and the more people do it at the same spot, the better yield is expected. Urine can also be used as a weapon which remains to be seen as to how exactly.
The surprises weren’t over just yet as we got to see two new characters in the game one of which is Margaret Qualley of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood fame which works alongside Sam and has a baby of her own, but she is trapped in a single location as the baby is present in another dimension and we can also see a translucent image of her baby.
Geoff Keighley also has a cameo in the game and he will help Sam from early on, Geoff Keighley’s character is voiced by Matt Mercer has tasks for Sam to complete which throughout the game will probably develop into a strong relationship.
The gameplay video also shows Sam’s character falling off a clip which hurts the baby and Sam has to console the baby which the players will be in control of using their PS4 controller’s motion sensors.
As per Kojima’s words, the main motive of the game is to connect the world together and if you check out the map you will see the strand that you keep making. You will most probably begin at the East Coast of the United States and work your way towards the West while battling terrorists and BT’s as you progress.
Death Stranding is in the final stages of its development with more gameplay footage promised to be revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2019.
Death Stranding is being developed by Kojima Productions and as of right now remains a PlayStation 4 exclusive game.
