Death Stranding gets stranger somehow in this new trailer

Death Stranding gets stranger somehow in this new trailer

Another trailer for Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding was shown during The Game Awards 2017 and, just like the first trailer featuring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus and the second trailer from last year's Game Awards featuring Guillermo del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen, it's a real mindf'er. The haunting trailer goes on to tease Sam and the team's enemies: several odd, alien lifeforms only barely visible in the footage.

There's more Norman Reedus, more Norman Foetus, and those odd black figures from the game's debut trailer over a year ago. At one point Reedus sinks to the bottom of a lake that appears out of nowhere and looks up to see a giant bug skate across or above the surface. The trailer closes with Norman Reedus' character stating, "Once there was an explosion, a bang that gave rise to life as we know it".




The trailer, as one might expect of Kojima, featured a lot of artistic imagery that somehow manages to inform the viewer while telling them absolutely nothing. Look, you should probably just watch the trailer. He then sees the floating figures we've seen before, this time above a huge crater, hammering home the explosion motif.

Still, the latest trailer for Kojima's next project, Death Stranding, takes the creator's trademark absurdity to a whole new level.
