The latest trailer for Hideo Kojima’s upcoming action game Death Stranding shows a lot that hasn’t been seen before as well as showcasing a track by Finnish symphonic metal band Apocalyptica, and revealing the game’s anticipated release date.
Clocking in with a runtime at just under nine minutes, the new trailer offers a little more regarding the mysterious storyline while still leaving a lot unexplained. Mortality and connections seem to be recurring themes in the game.
The trailer predominantly features the track “Path” by Apocalyptica, taken from their third album Cult which was released back in 2000.
The open-world nature of the game is once again shown off as our central protagonist Sam traverses various locales such as open fields, mountaintops, and crumbled buildings.
We also see more of the game’s UI as Sam is seen selecting a ladder with which he uses to climb higher parts of the game world. Ropes can also be planted in the ground, allowing him to safely abseil down to lower areas that are otherwise unreachable.
Much like the Metal Gear Solid series, players will be able to use stealth and evasion to avoid enemies, or they can elect to use hand-to-hand and weapon-based combat to take them out.
Death Stranding has a star-studded cast including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Nicolas Winding Refn, Tommie Earl Jenkins, Troy Baker, Lindsay Wagner, and a special appearance by film director Guillermo del Toro.
The game is scheduled for release on 8th November for PlayStation 4.
