Death Stranding Finally Gets Its Release Date

One of the most anticipated video games of this year Death Stranding has finally gotten its release date. Kojima Productions has delighted us with another trailer, which showed a bit more of the whole gameplay and the story behind it. 

The Long Journey of Death Stranding

Starring Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, Danish acting phenomenon Mads Mikkelsen, and French actress Léa Seydoux, Death Stranding is a huge open-world adventure video game that has been in the works for years. Founder of Kojima Productions Hideo Kojima first announced it at Sony’s conference during E3 2016 with the first trailer, garnering intrigue from the gaming community.

A second 4K trailer came out during The Game Awards at the end of 2016. It has come a long way since then, with another sneak peek coming out from Sony’s E3 in 2018. With the new trailer revealing the release date, fans all over the world can rejoice and start pre-ordering the game.

Gameplay and Expectations

The latest trailer published on May 29 gave us some more details about what we can expect to experience in November. The action takes place in the near future, where mysterious explosions have ravaged our planet, bringing the humankind to the brink of extinction.

The main character Sam Bridges, played by Reedus, embarks on a journey across the devastated landscape filled with threatening spectral creatures. While a lot has been shown in the trailer, there’s still a lot of confusion with its story as a whole but it seems to lean in on trying to save the human race from annihilation. Climbing through hills and fighting extremists plotting in the shadows while carrying a baby is just the start in exploring the vast world of this game. Sounds intense.

The trailer revealed the release date of the game which slated to be on November 8, 2019. While waiting for November which will also bring us Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Truck Driver, and XIII Remake, you can pre-order Death Stranding on the PlayStation website and Amazon.
