It seems that even Guillermo del Toro, whose likeness appears in Death Stranding, has no idea what the game is about either.
Welcome to Hideo's world.
Thats the fun part right?
We already know who the pro and antagonist are. We know it has something to do with black holes. We know it takes place in an alternate United States. We just don't know the exacts about the story line. An incredible amount of research has been done studying nearly every aspect of the game. Some hints: Bridges: https://pbs.twimg.com/media... More science related hints: http://www.playstationlifes... Research: https://www.youtube.com/wat... @UltraNovaI ts actually funner not knowing and trying to figure it out.
Join the club sir.
its not surprising as he only has his likeness in the game, he has stated he has no other input in the game itself.
Lol. So... this Games a hit based off the creator not his creation so far. I don't get the hype around a game no one has an idea about.
The hype is hideo kojima. All his games get this hype. The thing I find funny is how people think this will come in 2018/2019. This is minimum a 2020 game. Maybe even later than that.
Fall of 2019 seems right
Kojima said himself that he plans to release it before 2019...
Its a PS4 exclusive being supported by Sony. Its also being created by one of the best video game creators of all time, and you dont get the hype? Thats like saying I dont get the hype behind a new R* game. Its not like Kojima moved to phone games like Konami. Its a full on slap to the face to Konami, so you know Kojimas gonna be working day and night to make sure this is stellar. If you look at how fast Kojima opened his studio and created this game, you can tell hes still got major beef with Konami. Its a matter of proving them wrong, which is a good thing for gamers as this would have probably released way later if he didnt have his beef with Konami. Looking forward to the PSX panel. Hopefully they announce a release window.
So the game could be called whatever and the trailer could of been a dot zooming in and out of focus for 2 mins and people would still be hyped? He's previous works doesn't guarantee success but it's something to consider... I get that. Too soon to put all eggs in the basket though. So we are hoping he delivers as he's done in the past Is this the case with this Dev? I thought we would have learned already this generations hypes things that don't live up to the hype and games have a launch date with a post launch fixes.. hype can wait... at the least let's us know what to be hyped about as far as game information goes.
@B1uburner there is information for the game in regards to subject matter. Kojima leaves clues in all of this interactions with the media and fans. the dog tags around norman's neck are equations to black hole theories and quantum physics. he spoke of how until now, most multiplayer games have been the sticks (keeping enemies away) where this game will be the rope (keeping friends and value close) theres even some theories out there based on character models and designs that this might be a spiritual successor to Silent hill. What we do know is that they have been working with GG on the Decima engine to improve its uses for what he needs, but the fact he chose (or help build the engine) says what is possible with that engine and his idea for the game. heck he has an office in Amsterdam at the GG studio, and GG has an office in the Kojima Productions Studio. The man knows how to hype up a game, but he does it in the right way, instead of plastering and constantly talking about his game, he leaves the info intertwined with his day to day operations, everything he says, posts and shows has been carefully orchestrated to show only the keen eye'd viewer what the game is about
It's not exclusive it's coming to PC also.
I love people disagreeing with FACTS hahahaha THIS IS NOT A SONY EXCLUSIVE!!!!!! Get over it fanboys. The best place to play this game will be on PC.
Sorane It's not too late to get a Ps4. I know it hurts but Death Stranding will be a ps4 exclusive, and will probably be the best looking game when it releases on the pro, lmao.
I think what he included in the trailer looks really interesting. The actors for this game are odd, the whole umbilical cord attached to everything is interesting. I was interested because of everyone's hype, now I'm interested in how the trailer is connected and the crazy theories that people have created. Interesting and bored.
I think you're struggling to shake off the idea that this will be a Ps4 exclusive.
Hideo is the epitome of an overrated... oh cut that. I forgot the many, many fanboys who are mixing up good narration with Hideo's weird output.
Why is he overrated?
Because Death Stranding won't be Xbox.
To a degree I would agree, but he has done some awesome stuff. Metal Gear Solid is considered one of the best PSX games. MGS3 is my favorite ps2 game and one of my favorite pieces of media of any kind. For that reason alone he has my interest. I’m not overly hyped, but i am interested.
This is sounding like a bit of a mess if you ask me. Does Kojima even know what Death Stranding is about? Is he keeping the information closely to himself? Is he Still Experimenting? Is their even a game called Death Stranding in the works? At this point, no one knows.
Do you really think he doesn't know what his game is about? Just because we don't know doesn't mean he doesn't know. He has left a ton of clues in the trailers and his Twitter posts. Just because we haven't figured it out only means he has succeeded in keeping in secret. He is a professional, not some bumbling novice.
My apologies, you are right After watching the last trailer. I am really hyped. Was having a bad day when i wrote this
unlike the haters in here i'm giving kojima the benefit of the doubt. The same way i'd give any studio the benefit of the doubt when they have a good track record. People say he's overrated but the man created a genre of games and mechanics ppl use to this day. If you don't like the mgs series then i can see why it would annoy you but you can't say his games don't have attention to detail and novel gameplay ideas. Edit: On topic, as for people being unable to know what his concept is I think it's going to be something very creative. Also if any of the haters bothered to read the article they would know that kojima didn't explain or say anything to him about the game just did a scan.
Hey if the gameplays good who cares, still buying it. Remove the Xbox one and PC tags this is a PS4 exclusive 😃
Like to see the world from his eyes is like trying to fit a commercial jet into your 2 car garage, he see's the possibility where no-one else does and he makes it happen then you're like WTF HTF DID YOU DO THIS... This is why MGS is so amazing (up to Guns Of Patriots) because the series has been sooo cryptic playing it several times you still are like OHHHH.... And if you were to play MGS up to Guns Of Patriots or own all of the games and play them in correct order. You'll realize that besides the whole metal gear aspect, it is very much what is happening in todays world.
Lol the salt is real in this comment section xD
I honestly don't think Hideo knows either.
No knows what this game is about, but it is always being brought up like it is a hit. Wait until you play the game or see some reviews before you call it a hit.
It looks interesting,it's a Hideo Kolima game & it's a PS4 exclusive..you can't go wrong with that.
It's coming to PC also. It's not exclusive.
It's a PS4 gaming console exclusive,it will not be on the XBO or Nintendo gaming console.
People still making dumb comments like yours, Mark Cerny is Technical Producer on the game, Decima Engine is owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment, the collaborates of the engine GG are owned by Sony and the Trademark is owned by Sony and every game that Uses Decima is PS4 exclusive, your not playing Untill Dawn, Rigs, Horizon Zero Dawn, Kill-zone Shadow fall, The Inpatient, Hidden Agenda on PC, what makes you think Death Stranding is coming on PC, who is paying you guys to make such ridiculous comments with next to none background information.
@Persian Because they said it was you idiot hahaha. What does the engine have to do with it? Decima is not an exclusive engine even if only Sony exclusives use it now. It was never for one second a Sony exclusive. Please point to anything that says it is. Sorry a Sony console won't be the best place to play Deaths Stranding, but you hardcore Sony fanboys should be getting used to it now. Hahahaha and you of all people trying to say people get payed to post about other platforms. I'd say Sony should pay you, but you'd have to know what you're talking about first. You didn't even know this game was announced for PC hahaha.
Wheres your proof?
" It was never for one second a Sony exclusive. Please point to anything that says it is". Can you not read or do you suffer from reading comprehension? Mark Cerny works for Sony he is Technical Producer for DS, SIE Visual Arts Group is capturing the Facial Capture and Mo-cap again also owned by Sony, engine again only used for exclusives. The only evidence you could cling to is a deleted Q&A which came from a community manager who works for SIEE guess what Kojima never even mentioned PC. Then there is a matter of Sony owning the trademark, and funding Kojimas new office space and now Kojima Production Amsterdam which also funded by Sony, Kojima is getting both help with development and publishing at this point Sony is more involved with the game then him.
@maf Where's yours? Or you just show me one second of the trailer last night where it said it was an exclusive? I won't wait for your answer since I already know you have no proof. @Persian I can read just fine. You are obviously having problems though since absolutely nothing you posted proves for 1 second that it's exclusive. Bringing up a useless trademark just proves how little you are clinging too. If you knew anything you'd know trademarks don't mean a single thing about IP ownership. Even Sony fanboy sites reported the trademark had nothing to do with IP ownership. I hope Sony isn't paying you guys much because you're not good at your jobs. The definitive edition on PC is going to be sweet.
sorane, this game is running off a SONY owned engine. MGS4 has been a PS exclusive for ages. ...What makes you think it's coming to PC? You need to do your reading a little closely.
I pray this game makes it through to us and that every detail and desire of Kojima's wishes for this game are fulfilled in its creation and final presentation and that it is a sight to behold and a message to all... that games can be art and treated like a movie and should be respected and that it is a medium to get a message across. That Kojima can find his place above and beyond the Ludens and the rest of the world... including Konami (and EA) sees what a true masterpiece and labor of love is and how it benefits the player and the investor. Cause true art is not about the money, but pays for itself.
Hideo's one of the only guys that knows how to tease his audience in a clever way without spoiling stuff. Meanwhile FFXV...
Of course Del Toro don't know... Kojima hasn't shown him of the story at all.
Dont feel bad, no one else does either.
Speaking of him. I love Trollhunters, really nice animation he created. Season 2 starts Dec. 15 :D
im excited for this. And it even has Mads Mikkelsen. Color me hyped and interests piqued
Good. He can't give anything away.
Not the only one...
