E3: Death Stranding is intriguing

E3: Death Stranding is intriguing

It is no surprise with Hideo Kojima; but Death Stranding is just as unique as it is difficult to understand. What is certain is that its game world will leave no one indifferent and that we can't wait to figure out what this title is all about. French actress Léa Seydoux joins Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen in the cast and she seems about as mysterious as the other characters.
Update: Added an image gallery.
Update 2: Watermark-free video added.

Thanks for this. Very intrigued. The graphics looking amazing, maybe the best of E3 alongside Ghosts of Tsushimi, TLoUs2 and Cyberpunk 2077 (although that was only cutscenes so...)

At first I was thinking: no way this can run on a PS4. But then I looked closer, and it seems to be all vertical slices where you have no control over the camera. You can see it in every scene that the camera is not being controlled. So, this is a big advantage for better visuals as it's not a 360 view they have to be able to render, just a slice.

this sounds like utter tosh.

still a super intriguing game, and still beyond impressive visually. decima engine is a beast, you can see why kojima opted for it. but those many many box carrying scenes? is that like a core element of the game? being a delivery guy?

Kojima said that some of the camera angles in the trailer were just specially chosen for cinematic effect. The camera in all the gameplay scenes is fully controllable.

Then I was wrong. I didn't see the conference (too late in Belgium), so I don't know what he said. But hearing that the camera is fully controllable, then I have to say: how is this possible on PS4??? That engine must be super efficient and every game going for realism should use it.

@Korn: I was wrong as said above. It seemed that way. I also said 'seems', so I wasn't sure in the first statement :-)

I do hope it's the core of the character. A delivery guy going through an adventure sounds great to me.

I think the question is - how much of this is a game and how much of it is an interactive movie like Detroit Become Human.

Are you kidding me ? Kojima better delivers some exciting gameplay because this "hiking" simulator definitely isn't worth all the hype -___-

A walking simulator trailer, but visually mindblowing. I was hoping to see something else than characters wandering around empty masive environments...

It looks such bland game, I was nearly falling a sleep last night watching this! Compare this to TLOU 2 which looked incredible Kojima has got a hell of alot to do in the next year or two!
Commented on 2018-06-12 14:01:07 In reply to Xoar
that's the key thing to take away from this. this game is upwards of 2 years away!

what we saw of this looked stunning, but they're clearly still pretty early in content development. seems they've purely been focusing on rendering and character movement so far.

in kojima we trust!

Visually great, but this was the most boring trailer of the game so far.

We still have yet to see a lot of other stuff, so the wait could be worth it at the end.
Commented on 2018-06-12 14:34:45
Hmmm, I wonder how many more big name celebrities are going to be involved with this game.

Kojima and his esoteric trailers, you gotta love'em.

Korn - this has cross gen written all over it. :)

Really liked this trailer, only thing I thought it missed was combat, which I'm sure they're waiting for TGA, PSX, or maybe even in E3 2019. Depending on how much longer it takes, this might turn into a PS5 launch title along with PS4, of course.

It's obviously using photogrammetry and physically based rendering, delivering some of the most photo real landscape visuals ever seen in a game.

Others might be baffled, or even bored, by the gameplay segments of it, but to me that's the best part. It looks like this one is going to be a game that takes its time. It'll be methodical and concentrate more on world exploration and immersion. It looks different, and different to the usual Ubisoft, EA and the rest conveyor belt games that all look like the same shite in a slightly different skin. I want to see more, which is more than I can say for the rest.

Most disturbing, dark, sad, hopeless atmosphere I have seen in a video game. Absolutely mindblowing. I just hope it wont focus on combat and dull crafting.

Exactly. It's like a David Cronenberg/David Lynch collaboration of some sorts.

Btw, from where source did you get the trailer? I'm talking about the Ps4 Exclusive logo in it, I want to show it to some skeptical friends

Thank you so much for this version of trailer !!!
For me, 4K quality and 60fps is exaggerate: my pc and ps3 doesn't support that.

So... THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!

These trailers make history, must be preserved in the best version and quality.
And thanks to you, this is possible. Thanks again, D.

I'm curious about all the baby imagery

Clearly the creatures also have umbilical cords

And inside that box is a human baby which somehow detects those giant enemy babies... baby weapon

mads mikkelsen also had umbilical cords attached to his skeleton squad. there's also a recurring "wink" that appears in the trailers, including this one with the baby.

based on the dialogue in this trailer, is sounds like people have either inherent or bought abilities ("dooms" i think she says?) which have a level system. norman reedus's character seems to have one that prevents him from dying (but results in a huge crater (void out) left in the location he dies) called "extinction factor" and he seems to consider the womans abilities better or more useful than his own (who i assume allows her to see the creatures and avoid them?)

it risks being overly convoluted for the sake of being convoluted... it is a kojima game after all, but it's ridiculously compelling and intriguing to watch.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm super skeptical of COD BR too though.. there are so many hurdles there. COD is not designed as a large scale shooter. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I think the hero shooter stuff is its weakest point. They should just forget about it. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I feel like COD has an identity crisis. It doesn't know what it wants to be because it wants to be everything. (3 Hours ago)
