New Screenshot Released for Death Stranding
Ever since E3 2016, Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding captivates many by its complex ambiguousness. Today is no different with Kojima posting a new screenshot on Twitter today to get us speculating some more.
From Kojima Productions, this PS4 exclusive title is highly anticipated at E3 this summer. Featuring The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus and Hannibal’s Mads Mikkelson, we still know little about the game’s story and gameplay.

Well, it is exciting to see an excerpt of what the Decima Engine will do. This game engine was previously used by Guerilla Games for Horizon: Zero Dawn and showed gorgeous results in its open-world rendition.
Apart from the graphical teaser, some people speculate about what clues may be hidden in the lichen but nothing tangible has yet been deciphered.
At any rate, we were promised a new Death Stranding trailer for Sony’s conference in 3 weeks and are hopeful to understand more about this title. One thing’s sure, Kojima truly knows how to build and sustain the hype and speculation train.
Actor Norman Reedus had previously said on the game in a B&H Podcast, “The concept is so mind-blowing, because it’s not like, you know, “kill everybody and win the game”, it’s a connecting thing. It’s like the opposite. And, you know, it’s so ahead of its time. And there’s elements of social media in it, and the idea is that, you know, you have so many games, and so many parts of millennial culture I guess, is being alone in a room. And you lose physical contact with people. This is after that and the re-establishing of that physical contact.”
In February, we learnt that Troy Baker (Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us, Far Cry 4) and Emily O’Brien (Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, The Order: 1886, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider and soon, Days Gone) had joined the cast, which sounds even more promising.
With the last trailer released during 2017’s Game Awards, it is now time for a new one.
So, Mister Kojima-san, we cannot wait to see more this June.
