Kojima Productions revealed a new trailer for Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding PlayStation 4 game during Sony's E3 2018 press conference on Monday. The trailer unveiled the full name of Norman Reedus' character as Sam Bridges, and also revealed Léa Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner as part of the game's cast.
Kojima revealed three new pieces of key art for the game, showing the character Sam Bridges, as well as the characters played by Seydoux and Wagner.
The video also contains a description for the game:
Besieged by death's tide at every turn, Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the stranded remnants of the future in his hands, Sam embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time. What is the mystery of the Death Stranding? What will Sam discover on the road ahead? A genre defining gameplay experience holds these answers and more.
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.
A trailer for the game debuted in December 2016, and it features character models based on director Guillermo del Toro and actor Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). Kojima asked del Toro to be a character in the game.
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.
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.
