"Give me your hand in life... give me your hand in death... give me your hand in spirit." - Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding finally has a gameplay trailer and it's... predictably weird.

The trailer featured a lot of Norman Reedus' character climbing, over hilly, rocky, mossy and mountainous terrain - carrying a big backpack, then what looked like a body, and getting very sore feet.

Lots of atmosphere-building, basically - we could probably expect no less - but the thing to note is that a lot of it was actually gameplay: specifically the hiking and what looked like a stealthy section as Reedus' character sneaks past a swathe of those terrifying, floating enemies using some kind of brilliantly sci-fi dowsing machine powered by a... foetus?

The footage is in 4k, features actual gameplay, and is running on a PS4 Pro, according to Kojima himself on Twitter.

Other things to note include new cast announcements - La Seydoux features as a mysterious, spiky-leather-clad ally and Lindsay Wagner is introduced right at the end.

It's weird, but it's gameplay. Still no sign of a release date though, which probably isn't much of a surprise.
