Death Stranding launches November 8

Go on a journey to reconnect a fractured society.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding will launch for PlayStation 4 worldwide on November 8, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and deveoper Kojima Productions announced.

Here is a message from director Hideo Kojima:

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

Death Stranding is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing 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.

Here is an overview of the game, via PlayStation.com:

Tomorrow Is In Your Hands
