It's True, Death Stranding is Releasing on PS4 This November

The Norman Reedus delivery game is coming this fall to PS4.

After years of trailers and teases, we finally have a release date for Hideo Kojima's next game. Death Stranding is coming to PlayStation 4 on November 8, 2019.

Starting with a countdown stream yesterday, Kojima Productions built up anticipation to today's reveal. Though the date was leaked a little early by a posting, this still confirms that not only is Death Stranding coming this year, but it's coming to this generation of consoles.

The trailer features a predictably Kojima-themed collage of oddities and themes. The game centers around Sam Bridges, a deliveryman in a ruined world using tools to navigate the environment and avoid enemies. Those seeking to stop your deliveries range from a militant separatist group to nigh-invisible monsters who drag you into some oily muck. While the former requires some nimble footwork and suitcase combat to deal with, it seems like you can only run and hide from the supernatural monsters.

There also seems to be some time-travel elements, as Sam is shown traversing World War I, hiding behind a tank and shooting an assault rifle in trenches. The trailer also ends with Mads Mikkelsen's character in another, later warzone, seemingly in reference to Vietnam.

The end of the trailer shows off Death Stranding's star-studded cast list featuring names like Guillermo del Toro, Mads Mikkelsen, and Léa Seydoux. Also, you're rebuilding America and know the president? I have more questions than answers at this point, but frankly, that's fitting for a Kojima game. We'll hopefully learn more as we get closer to the November 8 launch date.
