I’m sure that Death Stranding is meant to be psychological horror, but even after a good seven minute cinematic trailer from The Game Awards last night, it just looks like very well produced incomprehensible nonsense. There’s invisible monsters, gigantic visible monsters, the baby in a jar returns from previous videos and there’s Norman Reedus, though he’s wearing clothes this time. So… great?
Obviously, we’re still at the point where there’s an achingly slow build up of hype and teasers with the mere fact that it’s a Hideo Kojima game as its foundations. Watch the trailer here, but there’s a long way to go and I’ll be more interested when there’s something a bit more tangible to go on.
