More than 10 minutes of new Death Stranding footage closed out Geoff Keighley’s Gamescom livestream, with the usual mix of bizarre Hideo Kojima fare.
Initial, a character trailer for “Mama”, played by The Leftovers actress Margaret Qualley. In this, we learn Qualley’s character is “Mama” to a infant from “the other side”. It is invisible, so you do not see it breastfeeding via her clothing.
Subsequent up, a trailer for “Bridge Child” and “Dead Man”, the latter of which is the character played by Kojima pal Guillermo Del Toro. In this, there is some heavy exposition for what the babies glimpsed in the game are employed for – despite the fact that immediately after the clip played, Kojima and his translator then spent additional time laying it all out. Perhaps the complete game will make a lot more sense.
Lastly, a chunk of actual gameplay footage, exactly where we see key character Sam – AKA Norman Reedus – undertaking his rounds as a sci-fi Deliveroo driver. He can take a piss and it grows a mushroom. He can also do a job for a character with the face of Geoff Keighley.
Just after that clip aired, Keighley expressed delight at becoming integrated – his face was scanned some time ago, he mentioned. Kojima also created clear you will not be in a position to rotate the camera to see Reedus’ penis.
Death Stranding launches 8th November on PS4, and sometime thereafter on Computer.
