Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that Death Stranding, the latest project from legendary game creator Hideo Kojima, will be available 8th November 2019 on PlayStation 4.
In Death Stranding, play as Sam Bridges and traverse a ravaged nation to reconnect a fractured society and save mankind from the brink of extinction, one step at a time.
A special message from Hideo Kojima was shared on the PlayStation Blog with more insight about the game:
“Death Stranding is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the ‘Strand’ or connection.
“As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or ‘Strands’ with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.”
