To kick off Gamescom 2019 last night Geoff Keighley, the man behind the yearly Game Awards, hosted an opening night showcase.
Closing out this showcase was the great Hideo Kojima, who was on hand to share some new trailers for Death Stranding, his highly anticipated first non-Metal Gear game as director since 1994’s Policenauts—not counting the P.T. demo for the Silent Hill game we’ll never get to play, sadly. Kojima shared three new character trailers for the game, found below, one of which includes new peeks at gameplay footage.
Gamers have been excited about the latest game from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, titled Death Stranding, for three years now. But trailers and gameplay peeks we’ve seen over those three years, while awesome and intriguing, have left us clueless as to what the hell is actually going on in the game.
Thankfully a new trailer has been released, and I can absolutely confirm that I still have not a freakin’ clue what’s going on. But damn, it is pretty awesome. In fact, if I get a chance to review the game it might just say “Damn, that was awesome” and leave it at that.
The trailer shows off more of the game, including some new gameplay action, and introduces some new cast including a second film director making an appearance. It also reveals something Kojima fans have been eagerly awaiting for a long time: a release date. You can find more info and check out the trailer below.
It’s been two years now since we were first introduced to Death Stranding, the latest game from Hideo Kojima, at E3 2016, and tonight at E3 2018 we got our first peek at actual gameplay.
Another lengthy trailer for the game was shown, clocking in at over eight minutes and presenting plenty of new cinematic footage mixed with the aforementioned first looks at the game in action. No one still has any freakin’ clue what’s going on in this one, but it is progressing toward finally making its way to our confused eyes.
Thankfully we now have a brief description of Death Stranding to shed a little bit of light on what it’s about, and you can find that below along with the new trailer.
Fans were devastated to learn that the new Silent Hill game, which had been announced a couple of years back from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and Hellboy and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro starring The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, was canceled by Konami.
But while we’ll never get to play that game, Kojima isn’t letting that slow him down. Now that he has departed Konami, Kojima was back at E3 2016 to share the first trailer for his new game, titled Death Stranding, which stars…wait for it…Norman Reedus! What’s the game about you ask? I have absolutely zero freakin’ clue, but the trailer is one strange trip. You’ll absolutely have more questions after watching it than answers. Continue below to check it out.
