Sony Interactive Entertainment and Kojima Productions presented a brand new look at Hideo Kojima's next game, Death Stranding.
I’m so confused! Looks amazing though.
That's alot of people, this is so creepy but we love it can't wait to see more.
I'm confused. The last sequence of the trailer talks about time fall and him being surrounded. Also that the creatures can't see you but can hear you. Sam isn't a fighter but a delivery guy. Too cryptic... Ok, I'm still intrigued but Damn it Kojima, I need more, TGS and PSX needs to deliver the goods. 4 Trailers and we still know so little
THAT was the 'silent' trailer as Kojima has said, here: http://n4g.com/news/2178292... The actioner one awaits ;)
this conference had horrible pacing. im not sure what the hell sony just did.
yeah, conference itself could have been better. I enjoyed Microsoft's conference the same or a little more. That said, Death Stranding is probably the best game I saw at E3.
Why? It looked like a walking simulator with a creepy soundtrack.
Gotta agree with 343. It's literally what I said; felt like a walking simulator. But I'll reserve judgement for the final game bevause I think there will be a lot more to that come release.
I simply took it at face value. Not as a walking simulator, but showing you some of the environments you’ll be in from the playable character’s POV. Hadn’t seen that before. Halo infinite did something similar. Snapshots of the world. Plains, waterfalls, mountains, red mars looking area, dilapidated rainy ruins. Shadow of the colossus teasers did that too. The combat will come. Always does. The puzzle here, is no one knows what’s going on yet, lol. Kojima’s using ? instead of !
This is getting hype because it's Kojima and it's on the leading console, PS4. Imagine if MS had shown this trailer from a new studio. It would be ripped to shreds on this site. This game has shown me nothing so far. I'm not interested in the least bit.
@ denawayne, Doesn't really matter, when MGSV was revealed same amount of awe vs naw was in the air... as Kojima himself just revealed this was the "silent" trailer for Death Stranding... the smooth, action-less one... haha just wait for the one with all the gusto, see Kojima's words: http://n4g.com/news/2178292...
I agree with P bomb, but yall hate on Septic too much, what they said is perfectly reasonable. We all know it is way more than a freaking walking simulator, it’s just a joke. The game is being crafted by a god, so I can’t see his game sucking.
It's abiut games thought and sony was better in that department
Halo Infinite was an in engine demo not actual gameplay footage. It gave you just enough to imagine what will happen in the next Halo. Chief new ring world. Marines. Death Stranding showed actual gameplay of walking. Yes walking.
They did say, don't expect the same E3 experience. You already know 98% of everything MS showed will be on PS4. So they showed something else. Something different than the same thing you usually see at E3. But still show AAA games without the filler. They could have just showed game after game after game and just walked away while dropping the mic.
I would like a PS4 conference that starts before Microsoft, UBI, EA and Bethesda. For years it was always the last with Nintendo. But then again they have enough of their own material that they have up their sleeves. I liked how this conference dove deep into the gameplay of the major games.
Yeah for tv viewers but that was just the beginning of the show so he'll at least they showed gameplay of the 4 games and some good announcements, freaking nioh 2.
Looks like we’re gonna be doing a lotta walking.
Still have no idea what's going on
I think Norman Reedus' character and those he are with are dead. They are shifting things in the afterlife or in a place between life and the afterlife. A place where souls are stranded. Perhaps the baby isn't a baby but an innocent soul.
I also think the picture isn't a picture. Its how he chooses to represent his memory of his still living family.
I believe you are looking too into it. This game doesn’t take place on earth nor is it in the present. Hypothetical guess is a off world colony, where something bad happens (Guessing a bad experiment ala Doom/deadspace). You play as a drifter and going to call it now... Just like Hideo used Snake Pliskin from escape from LA/NY, he’s taking alot of inspiration from another John Carpenter movie. This time its ghost of mars...
"I believe you are looking too into it. " Actually I am not looking into it ha ha. Death Stranding. Stranded by Death. Where would death strand you. Pretty simple really. Listening to several interviews with Reedus and Mikklesen, it doesn't seem to be ordinary sci-fi. Kojima used EFNY, not LA. The latter wasn't out when he created Metal Gear. And he took the Plissken name but used the likeness of Michael Biehn's Kyle Reese from The Terminator on the cover of the first game. So Kojima draws on a lot of sources at once.
My theory was that they're in Limbo. Between life and death. Stranded that is. Especially if you actually look up the term Death Stranding and Live Stranding. The Whales kind seemed like a clue in the original trailer.
"My theory was that they're in Limbo." My point exactly :)
@Morganfell Glad someone agrees with me. I've posted my thoughts as such since the very first trailer and all the other things shown so far has me convinced. First to preface why I thought so since the first trailer. What does the term 'Death Stranding' mean? When whales get trapped in a bay when water recedes and they die as a result its called a 'Death Stranding'. If the water returns and the whales survive the ordeal its called a 'Live Stranding'. What was present in the first trailer? Lots of dead whales populated the beach where Norman Reedus character wakes up. What else indicated to me this theory? The camera pans up and we see the scar on his body which looks like an upside down cross and when the trailer ends he looks up and it looks like 4 or 5 floating figures are in the sky. They appear like angels. Common images of the afterlife? Angels. Since then we found out he's a Porter. What is a Porter? By definition: a person employed to carry luggage and other loads, especially in a railroad station, airport, or hotel. We've seen them carry dead bodies in the new trailer. So a Porter for the Dead? To the afterlife maybe? Like say the Ferryman who brings the Dead to the Afterlife? We clearly see the Porters wading though water multiple times in the trailer. On that note water is prominently featured in almost every trailer as a I think is imagery of a path way. Definition of Ferryman: Charon (Greek mythology) the ferryman who brought the souls of the dead across the river Styx or the river Acheron to Hades So my theory is they were studying a subject that is a common interest in science which is the science of death. They find a path and follow the crumbs and unfortunately they opened a door that shouldn't be opened. Doors unfortunately go both ways. Now they're trying to undo or fix some messed up paradox that resulted from an experiment that has gone horribly wrong. So now everyone is trapped between Life and Death.
I love that i dont know what its about. Makes me want to play it even more, because i really want to find it out.
Game looks amazing, interstellar meets osirus new dawn = norman reedus walking dead. Im down is all im saying, day one buy for me
Same here. Listening to Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen talk about this project and Kojima gets me completely amped up even more than I am already. Norman Reedus: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Mads Mikkelsen: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Also this one was the 'Silent' trailer, as Kojima just revealed. Action oriented is definitely coming up... maybe PAX or TGS... see here, Kojima's words: http://n4g.com/news/2178292...
Yea I'm not even kojima fan unless were talking mgs on psone. This game looks great.
Beautiful, amazing, intense, confusing...too much to take in.
What I don't get is how everyone wants the whole story and all the big gameplay elements ruined for themselves instead of just playing the game and interpreting themselves. Its like watching 5 trailers for that movie you want to watch only to have all the best moments and premise completely ruined by the trailers. I would rather the trailers be confusing and entice me to want to play and figure out what is going on when I play the game.
I mean I don't think people want the story spoiled but we at least want to know what the game actually is. This trailer showed us nothing but a bunch of walking, some weird cryptic shit about the world and a tiny bit of actual stealth gameplay. They need to give us more info
@Ripcity I understand that. Its just that its a Hideo Kojima game so asking for it to 'make sense' might be a bit much. Also the game isn't dated for release yet and it seems its a series of trailers he's releasing. There is Paris Game Show, Gamescom, Tokyo Game Show and Sonys own Playstation Experience still to come this year. Plenty of time to show more.
Walking simulator. There I said it...
Obviously Kojima doesn't want to reveal the meat of the gameplay yet. I guarantee you that there is more to this game than wandering through the landscape. I assume we'll get a more action oriented gameplay reveal at PSX later this year.
@I_am_Batman I definitely know there is more to this game, and i expect and look forward to great things from it. But for the title to say this showed great gameplay is laughable.
He pulled out a gun at the end. lol. I'm sure we'll find out more sooner or later. I'm excited
There better be more than what we saw. There was zero fantastic game play shown. It was literally him walking the entire time. Where was the fantastic game play? Maybe I missed it.
Kojima screwing with your minds once again, another masterpiece on the way
If this was a movie I would how said: this would make a great game but then again it would be impossible to translate to a game.. yet here we are. Kojima doing whatever he wants ;))
Looks freakishly amazing. Still scratching my head as to wtf is going on?
I dont understand what this game all about LOL but honestly, its creepy :(
After that reveal, Death Stranding is still shrouded in mystery. There is something Kojima is still hiding here. Nonetheless, awesome showing for DS. I wish Kojima gives more gameplay details soon.
Apparently though, the baby is cognitive and aware, so it isn't just some set piece to move along the narrative. At the very least we can say the baby has something to do with the abilities that exist....whatever they may be. Creepy game though. Have a feeling this game is going to be more of a thriller suspense type game than an outright action game.
Man the atmosphere is haunting. It really gets under a persons skin. The song fits perfectly. With that being said I love the desolate environment. A lot like Shadow of the Colossus environment. Even though its a big empty environment, it never really feels empty. Compare that with many open world games that say theres so much to do but are completely empty and lifeless.
Jesus the dislike from xbox fans are real lol.
More like disappointed Sony fans.
Sony fans are excited for it.
Not gonna lie, gameplay I'm very iffy about it. Looks like a alot of walking.........and some stealth. I understand they are probably wanting to keep the gameplay elements a secret with the story which is fine. I may be in the minority and I know my comment will probably get alot of disagrees, but gameplay wise I was a bit disappointed with what we saw. Granted like I said, there could be way more then we know. But as it stands now, I'm a bit disappointed on the gameplay part. The story has me 100% interested though.
Well obvi the game is no where near ready lol
lol I know, did you not read my comment lol
I would be happy if this game doesn't have the gore to be honest, Sony and gory games is getting a bit boring now. At times it's like i'm watching a bunch of trailers for slasher horror movies.
Well...There was the cuts on the feet, the toenail, and the lady eating something creepy at the end. Plus a baby fetus in a jar. If you're looking for a game without gore, then I have a feeling this won't be it.
That was.. special, toe nail scene had me and mine crawling though!!
The more I see, the less I want to play it. Because it looks messed up. Are we going to use a baby as a battery?
Nobody puts baby in a battery!
This looked absolutely terrible. The Postman: the video game. It's obvious why Konami was keeping Kojima on a short leash.
Stop it man
This was the "Silent" trailer as Kojima himself just revealed, here: http://n4g.com/news/2178292... Hehe judging already?, Even knowing Kojima?? Just wait for the action one ;)... you sound like you weren't around in the MGSV reveal days :D
It's knowing Kojima is why I'm judging.
Knowing Konami and in what pit they fester as in right now, we ALL know it was upheld by Kojima alone... the latest MGS with horny guys? ahahahaha... Too good Kojima is with right guys, his slight impact through P.T. already showed what creative freedom could turn into... too bad Konami was not ready to provide that... much like what Microsoft did to Rare ;)
Haha yeah you chose Rare's most oblivious/out-of-touch failure (SoT) as an example of MS' allowing them to make something they wanted to make AFTER practically destroying them with corporate pizzazz ... from ultimate heroes to ultimate zeroes :D ... but don't worry, DS WILL have content... unlike SoT hehehe... See, Eurogamer did the whole article on their demise after the MS acquisition, we all know 'who killed rare' ;) ;) ;) https://www.eurogamer.net/a... But yeah, doesn't change the fact it was Kojima Productions that were upholding Konami's life :D ... an not the other way around, and its Kojima's very same eccentric-ism that holds sway even today!
Yea, Rare is dead which is why they have been the most successful under MS. And another hit in SoT. https://www.bleedingcool.co... Meanwhile, when everyone is writing Rare is dead articles and wishing for the original creators to come back...how did Yooka Laylee do? But I get it, say an opinion that doesn't line up with the mind hive here and then go into "bubububububu Microsoft" mode. ;;;;;;;;)))))))) Death Stranding looked terrible, a Norman Reedus delivery service with a baby flash light companion. Being strange and wierd doesn't make a game deep and surreal.
