Death Stranding release date trailer is here and we’re more confused than ever before

Unless you aren’t one of the three million people that have already watched Hideo Kojima’s highly-anticipated game, you’re about to get weirded out (and extremely hyped at the same time).

Death Stranding finally has a release date thanks to its recently released eight minute-long trailer, so expect to figure out what on Earth is happening in everything we’ve seen so far (or get even more confused) on November 8, 2019.

Check out the trailer below:

More puzzled? Yes, but the trailer also shows off just what we can do in the game, with our personal favourite being the extremely long ladder to traverse the apparently “post-apocalyptic America” terrain.

We love it as it indicates that players can explore anywhere, giving us those Breath of The Wild kind of feels.

As impressed as we are with a simple ladder, the trailer also features the militant separatist group Sam (Norman Reedus i.e. the player) will be facing off against, along with the creepy supernatural beings that will drag you to the “other side”.

Initially we thought Sam was just a delivery man of sorts, but now we see he can fight back with his fists and weapons, which means third-person shooter action.

There are quite a few notable stars in Death Stranding, including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen as what looks like the main bad guy named Cliff, Nicolas Winding Refn as Heartman, Troy Baker as Higgs and even special guest Guillermo del Toro as, erm, Deadman.

There’s even a guy in a skull mask called Die-hardman played by Tommie Earl Jenkins. Yup, this is a Kojima game alright.

If all the strangeness has got you hyped enough, you can pre-order to PlayStation exclusive now on the PS Store.
