Game developer Hideo Kojima posted screenshots of renders from Guerilla Games' Decima Engine, which his new Death Stranding game uses. Some of the screenshots recreate Kojima Productions' meeting room, and feature assets from the recent trailer for the game.
The trailer debuted earlier this month, and features character models based on director Guillermo del Toro and actor Mads Mikkelsen.
Kojima Productions, Kojima's own development studio, is developing Death Stranding, and it will star Norman Reedus. Kojima previously said the game will show "a different side of Reedus than fans of The Walking Dead might expect." Kojima Productions is developing the game using Guerilla Games' Decima Engine.
The game will be an action game, and will have open-world elements with "some degree of freedom." Kojima stated the game's name originates from the phenomenon of cetacean stranding, where dolphins and whales wash up on land and die. While other games offer elements analogous to "sticks" for gameplay, Death Stranding will also offer "ropes" to tie and link players together.
Kojima stated earlier that the game will have online gameplay, but it will also be fully playable in single player. The game will also include a female protagonist, but the character has not yet been cast.
Yoji Shinkawa, the character and mechanical designer for the Metal Gear Solid game series, hinted that he wanted to see mechs in the game. Shinkawa is currently working on the game alongside Kojima.
