Now Playing: Death Stranding Full Stage Presentation | Gamescom 2019

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

At Gamescom Opening Night Live, Hideo Kojima appeared on stage to debut new gameplay footage from his upcoming PS4 game, Death Stranding. In the brief segment, we saw Norman Reedus' character exploring the environment and making a special delivery.

First, Reedus' character Sam stood up in the middle of a hilly field, and after making a menu selection he urinated on some plants. (The camera strategically kept focused on Sam's back, and they demonstrated how you cannot swing it around to see his front.) Somehow, that appeared to grow a mushroom. After climbing a hill with a high-tech deployable ladder, Sam delivered a package. Then he exited the building, but fell down a hill. Since he was caring for the baby (BB) at the time, he comforted it before sliding down the rest of the way. You can watch the gameplay video below or check out the full Death Stranding portion of the stream above.

Kojima spent some time both before and after the presentation talking about his upcoming game. And since this event was being hosted by Geoff Keighley, the two made a point to point out that the man Sam delivered a package to was played by none other than Keighley himself, and voiced by Matthew Mercer.

Before this, we also got a better looked at another of Death Stranding's characters, Mama. The game still largely remains a mystery despite its launch coming up quite soon--its release date is scheduled for November 8 on PS4.
