Death Stranding is Kojima’s first new game since his split with Konami. Very little is known about the game, and that appears to be intentional, with Kojima weaving secrets into its new trailers and teasers like the one he released today.
The game features a number of celebrities, including The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus in the lead role, as well as Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Guillermo del Toro, and Troy Baker.
Speaking to Metro, Reedus said he’s never seen anything like what Kojima is doing with the game.
“The concept is so far out into the future. Instead of eliminating everyone around you, it’s bringing everyone together,” he explained. “It’s a very positive video game, but scary and depressing at the same time. It’s kind of a new movie. I’ve never seen anything like what we’re doing.”
At the Tribeca Film Festival in April, Kojima talked about how Death Stranding will make you cry.
No release date has been set as of yet for Death Stranding. The game was announced for PlayStation 4 and PC, and it’ll be released on console through a partnership between Kojima’s new studio, Kojima Productions, and Sony. A recent report said Death Stranding might also release on PS5.
