When Kojima Production chose to show a new trailer for Death Stranding during The Game Awards 2016, I was really looking forward to learn something about the game.
The reveal trailer, while cool and all, didn’t show too much (or anything) from the game – only a naked and obviously emotional Norman Reedus and lots of dead sea life.
Sadly for me, the second trailer isn’t much clearer. If anything, I now have more questions regarding Death Stranding, the most pressing of which is the one you see in the title. Another major one is “Why is Guillermo Del Toro here, and what is he doing with that baby?”
Oh, and apparently Mads Mikkelsen is in this, which automatically makes the game much more creepy and bizarre. He plays a… military commander? Let’s go with commander who controls a squad of skeleton soldiers connected to what I’m assuming is his bellybutton via electrical embryological cords.
It’s all very symbolic and rather disturbing, and you can watch it for yourself above. Death Stranding is a PlayStation 4 exclusive that’s coming out in the future.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links.
