Brand New Characters And Gameplay Revealed For Death Stranding

Brand New Characters And Gameplay Revealed For Death Stranding

After years of existing as an amorphous, inky blob, Death Stranding is finally taking shape before our eyes: first with actual cargo-hauling gameplay at E3 2018 and now with what looks very much like the intro cinematic to a boss battle.

Fans of the highly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive Hideo Kojima game, Death Stranding, were slightly disappointed when it was revealed that the game would not be playable at the Tokyo Game Show 2018 this weekend. He appears to be a villain in the game's world although details around his character were surrounded in mystery. In addition to this, another new character played by Troy Baker was revealed at the panel.

As for the Man in the Golden Mask, he looks like a sinister counterpart to Sam, with a similar hooded outfit and even his own weird little baby pod (though his glows red). This is suddenly interrupted by Troy Baker's charismatically charming voice, sending Reedus into hyperventilation.

Of course, Baker isn't in it for the fight this time around, summoning a enormous, supernatural, mask-bearing canine to do the dirty work.

Hopefully the trailer makes more sense to you. All he said was, "The release date for Death Stranding hasn't changed... yet".

KitGuru Says: Personally, I'm happy that there is some amount of familiarity as Kojima has crafted some of the best boss fights in the history of video games. That offers the possibility that Death Stranding may be farther along than one may think.
