Death Stranding is an action game developed by Kojima Productions. It is the first game from director Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions after their split from Konami in 2015. It was released by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 in November 2019 and by 505 Games for Windows in July 2020. Death Stranding received generally favorable reviews, with critics praising its voice acting, soundtrack, and visuals, with more mixed opinions regarding its gameplay and story. The game was nominated for and won several awards, including Game of the Year. Numerous commentators noted that elements of the game resembled the COVID-19 pandemic, which began within a month of its release.
The game is set in the United States following a cataclysmic event which caused destructive creatures to begin roaming the Earth. Players control Sam Porter Bridges (Norman Reedus), a courier tasked with delivering supplies to isolated colonies and reconnecting them via a wireless communications network. Alongside Reedus, the game features actors Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Troy Baker, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Lindsay Wagner, in addition to the likenesses of film directors Guillermo del Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn as supporting characters. From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying experience. Death Stranding is a digital experience – movie like, but more game than interactive novel / mild interaction.
Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the disconnected remnants of our future in his hands, he embarks on a journey to reconnect the shattered world one step at a time. Starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, and Lindsay Wagner. Additional PC features include HIGH FRAME RATE, PHOTO MODE and ULTRA-WIDE MONITOR SUPPORT. Also includes cross-over content from Valve Corporation’s HALF-LIFE series. Motion capture, high fidelity graphics and an environment reminiscent of the raw natural beauty of Iceland. The environment is a character on its own, where through the course of the game you will learn it’s nooks and crannies, where crossing a river becomes a serious consideration. This game isn’t for everyone, it’s a unique title that can carry a lot of emotional weight/resonance if you’re in the right frame of mind. Lots of atmosphere.
