Death Stranding Includes "Very Easy Mode" For Movie Fans

Pop some popcorn and relax as Norman Reedus pees on mushrooms in Death Stranding.


As we barrel towards Death Stranding's November 8 launch on PlayStation 4, game director Hideo Kojima confirmed that the action-exploration game will feature an additional difficulty mode specifically targeted at film enthusiasts.

Kojima tweeted that Death Stranding's very easy difficulty mode was implemented for movie fans to enjoy the experience and appreciate the star-studded cast assembled for the project. A Death Stranding play tester and personal assistant of Kojima's confirmed as much, saying that the very easy mode is for "people who usually don’t play games, movie fans, or RPG fans." Conversely, other difficulty modes--like normal and hard--are designed for action game fans.
