The first trailer to reveal gameplay for Hideo Kojima‘s mysterious new video game title Death Stranding is here … and we still have a lot of questions. Maybe more than we did before its arrival. But at least we have our first good look at how some of the gameplay will work in this highly anticipated adventure, from exploring the world(s) with extendable ladders and rappel lines, to engaging in combat whether on foot or astride a futuristic motorcycle. And as the newly revealed release date confirms, this one will be out just in time for the holiday season this year.
Starring Norman Reedus as Sam, Mads Mikkelsen as Cliff, Léa Seydoux as Fragile, and Lindsay Wagner as Amelie, with Margaret Qualley as Mama, Troy Baker as Higgs, and special appearances by Guillermo del Toro as Deadman, Nicolas Winding Refn as Heartman, and Tommie Earl Jenkins as Die-Hardman, Death Stranding arrives November 8, 2019.
