Coming on November 8 exclusively for the PS4 (for now), Death Stranding finally pulled back the curtain in giving us detail on characters previously named "Unidentified _", as well as showing actual gameplay. The Japanese cast will also include Maaya Sakamoto, but game director Hideo Kojima did not confirm Sakamoto's role.
The game has been teased repeatedly, but the closest we actually have to a full-on release date is Hideo Kojima's assurance that the game will be available before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. However, Kojima and that trailer revealed a bunch of new information about the game. It's sure to sell out quickly. Now, though, as we head into the final months before release, many people are curious as to whether or not Death Stranding will be a PS4 exclusive.
In Death Stranding, you play as Sam Bridges who will "traverse a ravaged nation to reconnect a fractured society and save mankind from the brink of extinction".
The themes of connection and players working together are just some of the things that Death Stranding is built on. Plus, you'll also receive special gold versions of various in-game items, but you'll have to unlock them through gameplay.
In addition to the supposed leaked date, a pre-order page for Death Stranding popped up on the PlayStation Store. You'll also get 10 PSN character avatars. We imagine it'll sell out quickly as these types of editions are prone to do, so snag the Collector's edition fast if you want it for yourself. Since Death Stranding's announcement, we've gotten a series of cryptic trailers with some dark and interesting imagery, but the mysterious nature of it is still ever-present.
