Death Stranding

Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions released a new and rather lengthy trailer for Death Stranding today. It features a mix of actual gameplay with some story segments spliced in. Furthermore, the studio announced that Death Stranding will be released on November 8, 2019 for the PlayStation 4.

There are a variety of different package offerings for the game, starting with the base game pre-order at $59.99 (USD). In addition to the trailer, a new PlayStation Blog posting gives a few additional details about the game, some of which we'll share below.


In Death Stranding, play as Sam Bridges and traverse a ravaged nation to reconnect a fractured society and save mankind from the brink of extinction.

A special message from Hideo Kojima:

People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation.

“Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others."
Death Stranding pre-orders come in four different flavors. We already mentioned the Standard Edition for $59.99. That will be available both digitally and as a physical release. Here are details about pre-order bonuses for every version along with the bonuses in non-Standard versions. Also included here are images for each of the below purchasing options.
