The trailer highlights a member of BRIDGES known as Heartman, who is committed to researching the truth of the Death Stranding. The video is straight gameplay where Heartman is interacting directly with Norman Reedus’ in-game character Sam Porter Bridges. The two discuss some strange topics as the video shows Heartman flip a timer that reads a countdown until Death, after just being resurrected. It seems as though Hearman’s life is on a timer of 21 minutes and he must do everything he needs to do in that time, sleeping and sex as well.
As the two talk viewers can learn a little about Heartman and how he spends his 21-minutes. In this life, he believes his soul is already on the beach and he is already dead.
Death Stranding was initially revealed back in 2016. The game marks Kojima’s first major project since he left Konami, and unfortunately, leaving the Metal Gear Solid series behind. Kojima has been giving us cryptic clues for Death Stranding via obscure trailers, but the latest trailer is the first true reveal of the game.
