Death Stranding Releasing November 8, Pre-order and Edition Bonuses Revealed

The more we see of Death Stranding, the more intriguing it gets. Release date, pre-order bonuses, and editions announced.

It’s been a long time coming, but Kojima Productions has finally shown us more of what’s to come in Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s first project since separating from Konami.

Throughout its near nine minutes, the trailer finally gives us a glimpse into the world of Death Stranding and it’s not just cutscene footage.

In a world changed by an event yet unseen, humans must forge connections with one another amidst the threat presented by “BTs”. It’s best to watch the trailer itself than to read my stumbling through of how to describe it. However, let’s just say that Kojima seems not to have lost his touch. From Kojima’s Twitter:

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

“DEATH STRANDING” is a completely new type of action game, where the player’s goal is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. All elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of “Strand”, or connection.

As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to “Bridge” these divisions, and in doing so, 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.

Now please enjoy the latest Death Stranding trailer.

Along with the trailer comes a release date. Death Stranding will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4 on November 8. Naturally, with this announcement are pre-order bonuses and different editions, so let’s jump right into that since it’s easily describable.
