Good luck understanding Death Stranding after its new trailer

Good luck understanding Death Stranding after its new trailer

Sony showed off some gameplay for Hideo Kojima's upcoming game Death Stranding during their E3 2018 press conference on Monday night. Bridges climbs mountains with lovely motion capture making it seem more realistic than most games, but is mostly trying to survive the elements and environment, which seem to be out to destroy life.

Lindsay Wagner, known for her role in 70s TV series, The Bionic Womam is another new actress that has joined the Death Stranding cast. The first gameplay footage had next to none combat and there were hints about multiple characters that could be playable, however, Kojima has confirmed that the player will only control Sam, who is the character portrayed by Norman Reedus. An off-screen character references that Sam will "come back" even if he fails, which is in line with what Kojima revealed earlier about death not meaning game over.

From the new trailer, it seems that Norman Reedus, whose in-game name is also still a big question mark, is like The Transporter, delivering "things" wherever they are needed. No combat, just traversal... and removing an injured toenail. Ugh.

That's about all we've seen at the E3 showcase. Unfortunately, he didn't quite evade their notice, and the scene concluded with a bunch of the creepy wraiths dragging him down into a deep black puddle. The goal of the main character is not yet clear, but he appears to be saving other folks who were trapped by unknown creatures.
