Death Stranding gets lengthy gameplay and story trailer

Seydoux you think it'll be out soon?

"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 new trailer for Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding is sci-fi craziness at its best

Hideo Kojima took to the stage at The Game Awards to reveal a new trailer for Death Stranding and it's... well, I'm not sure what it is.

The video stars a virtual recreation of The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, who along with some other characters faces off against mysterious invisible monsters. At one point we travel inside Reedus' body, via his mouth, and see a baby who gives us a thumbs up. Really.

It's impossible to get a sense of what kind of game Death Stranding is from this latest video, which is a cut scene in classic Kojima style, but there's a definite horror vibe. Death Stranding is published by Sony, so expect it out on a PlayStation console of some description at some point in the future.

We were all very excited to see Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro appear in the latest trailer for Hideo Kojima's highly anticipated, highly mysterious game, Death Stranding, suggesting that maybe the storied director would be heavily involved in its creative process, just as he allegedly was with the cancelled Silent Hills project. But it looks like that's not the case this time around.

Death Stranding's second trailer is even stranger than its first

Death Stranding's second trailer is even stranger than its first

Its a Mads world. And is that... Guillermo Del Toro?

Hideo Kojima just revealed a second trailer for Death Stranding at The Game Awards tonight.

The new trailer confirms what we pretty much already knew: that Hannibal and Men & Chicken actor Mads Mikkelsen will star in it alongside Norman Reedus.

What we didn't know is that the game will feature a character who looks suspiciously like Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro, who was slated to collaborate with Kojima on the now-cancelled Silent Hills project. Could he be involved, or is this just something wacky for the trailer?

Death Stranding is an action game with an open world

Hideo Kojima stars during Sony's Tokyo Game Show media briefing.

Hideo Kojima has talked a lot about his new game, Death Stranding, since leaving Konami, and during Sony's media briefing this morning he talked about it again, but this time with a new snippet of information.

Hideo Kojima is still very much on his world tour, it seems, and having only recently sampled the breakfasts of Brighton (a woeful hash brown, some miserable button mushrooms and a tiny little sausage - come on Brighton, we can do better than this) he popped up at this weekend's Comic Con to unveil the first 30 seconds of Death Stranding, and indeed every forthcoming Kojima Productions game.

Reedus a happier bedtime story!

The exciting Sony-Hideo Kojima partnership has produced fruit: a new game called Death Stranding. It stars Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead.

Death Stranding was unveiled at E3 by Hideo Kojima who introduced an unsettling trailer he said was running in real time.

In the trailer, the camera pans across a beach, showing a dead crab - fittingly for the 10th anniversary of Sony's Giant Enemy Crab E3 episode - and then a body, Reedus' body. He's naked and handcuffed, and near him lies a baby. He picks the baby up but it disappears.
