Sony Interactive Entertainment uploaded the promotional trailer for Death Stranding giving fans a dramatic overview of Norman Reedus’ character, Sam Porter Bridges and his mission to reconnect people during the game’s desolate times.
The trailer opens with Sam Bridges as he tries to escape a mob of villains known as Mules. As he struggles to stay a step ahead of them, Sam is narrating about his important mission to connect the world. The trailer closes on Sam preparing for his journey to deliver a package, overlooking a giant figure in a crater that looks to spell bad news for him.
With Death Stranding just a little more than a month away, the trailer is more meant to refresh fans, as well as newcomers of Sam Bridges’ mission, and the expectations of what we can look forward to when the game launches next month.
During Tokyo Game Show, the game’s director Hideo Kojima showed off a giant, nearly 50 minute gameplay walkthrough of Death Stranding showcasing features like survival elements, dropping items that other player can find, different ways to manage your package loads, fighting bosses and even playing a harmonica for your bridge baby, which by the way is a link between two dimensions.
Death Stranding was announced during Sony’s E3 presentation back in 2016, with a few months before that Sony unveiling a new partnership with the newly founded and independent Kojima Productions. From then to now, as Death Stranding went gold last week, known active development is about 4 years, no small task for Kojima’s first fully released title since Metal Gear Soild 5: The Phantom Pain.
Death Stranding is set to release November 8, 2019 on PlayStation 4.
