Death Stranding - Launch Trailer | PS4.
Death Stranding is an action game set in an open world, and also includes asynchronous online functions. Kojima compared the genre to how his earlier game Metal Gear - now considered to be a stealth game - was called an action game during its release because the stealth genre was not considered to exist at the time. The player controls Sam Bridges, a porter for a company known as Bridges. The player is tasked with delivering supply cargo to various isolated cities known as KNOTs, while also connecting them to a communications system known as the Chiral Network. The player is evaluated by the company and recipients based on their performance (including via "likes" similar to social networks), including whether the cargo was delivered, and if it is intact among other factors. These merits are, in turn, used to level up the player's statistics (such as stability and weight capacity) and increase their standing with individual locations and characters (which can improve rewards). How cargo is packed by the player, and the overall weight being carried, can affect Sam's ability to navigate through the environments. The player's main enemies include otherworldly creatures known as "beached things" (BTs), as well as MULE - a cult of rogue, bandit-like porters influenced by an obsession with cargo, who attempt to steal deliveries so they can deliver it themselves. BTs are surrounded by a rain known as "timefall", which damages the player's armor and cargo by speeding up their deterioration. BTs are normally invisible, but Sam's suit is equipped with a robotic sensor that points towards BTs he is in close proximity to, and the player can then scan the area to reveal them.
Death Stranding was scheduled to be released on November 8, 2019 (worldwide) and in 2020 by Sony Interactive Entertainment, 505 Games and Kojima Productions.
