Death Stranding Trailer Makes Sense After Playing 4-5 Hours, Sony Exec Claims

PS4 boss Mark Cerny says at PSX that the bizarre game actually makes sense...eventually.


Ever since Hideo Kojima's new game, Death Stranding, was announced at E3 last year, many have been wondering what type of the game it is and what all the weirdness is all about. We still don't know. But today at PlayStation Experience, PS4 boss Mark Cenry confirmed that the game is already playable and everything will make sense...eventually.

Cerny said he has played 4-5 hours of the game, noting that the story--or parts of it--will make sense after getting this far. It was also confirmed during the keynote that what you saw in the newest, strangest-yet trailer for Death Stranding was captured on PlayStation 4 Pro. Additionally, Kojima confirmed that the sequence in the new trailer where Norman Reedus' character is underwater is playable right now internally.

Now Playing: Death Stranding Game Awards 2017 Trailer

A new trailer for Death Stranding--the strangest one yet--was shown off during The Game Awards this week and again tonight during PlayStation Experience. You can watch it again in the embed above and check out our breakdown of the big moments here.

There's no official word yet on when Death Stranding will release, but Kojima himself hinted that it might launch in 2018. It stars Mads Mikkelson (Hannibal), director Guillermo Del Toro, and Reedus. In April, Kojima spoke a little about the game, explaining why he wanted Norman Reedus to be naked in the game's first trailer. We've since learned why its fog looks so nice.
