Is the game set in Iceland?
Keighley x Kojima
Keighley and Kojima sitting in a tree, we probably can't finish this joke for legal reasons. The game industry's deadliest duo is back are back in the headlines after Geoff Keighley posted a picture of Hideo Kojima on Twitter, as the daddy of Metal Gear stood next to a screen with The Game Awards logo on it. For those...
Everyone's favourite industry analyst Michael Pachter reckons Death Stranding, the PlayStation 4 exclusive from Hideo Kojima, will end up being a cross-gen title. In other words, it'll arrive on both PS4 and the inevitable PS5. "My bias is that will also launch in 2020, so no reason to announce any current generation...
Death Stranding added two new names to its all-star cast list in last night’s curious gameplay reveal: French actress Léa Seydoux and the Bionic Woman herself Lindsay Wagner. Both actresses will have prominent roles in the PlayStation 4 exclusive, alongside Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen – an insane cast. Director and auteur...
Just enjoy the journey
As promised, Hideo Kojima brought a lengthy new look at Death Stranding to E3 2018, and it confused everyone. The gameplay still looks quite early, but it’s clear that the auteur has a mind-bogglingly bonkers vision for this PlayStation 4 exclusive opus. Exactly what your objective in Death Stranding is remains unclear at...
How often does a game actually surprise you? God of War is probably the last announcement that actually took me aback; I was genuinely expecting a repurposing of the franchise’s established format, albeit transposed into a Norse environment. So when Kratos stepped out of the shadows at E3 2016 and Sony Santa Monica introduced...
Is the game set in Iceland?
Remember that time Hideo Kojima hired a Swedish guy in full body bandages to hold an interview with Geoff Keighley? It was part of the viral marketing campaign for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, with some even speculating that the so-called CEO of Moby Dick Studios was in fact being rendered by the Fox Engine, and...
Mads Mikkelsen on Hideo Kojima's upcoming exclusive
Death Stranding star Mads Mikkelsen has been speaking to Total Film about the forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive. In an interview at the Cannes film festival for the premiere of his new movie Arctic, the Danish actor described the game as complicated, crazy, and beautiful. He also spoke about the...
The ever-enigmatic Death Stranding is one of Sony's four flagship exclusives we'll be seeing more of at E3 2018, and the mind behind the madness, Hideo Kojima, has been teasing a new trailer on Twitter recently. In response to Neil Druckmann's tweet, itself building excitement for The Last of Us: Part II at Sony's showcase, Kojima
Here we go
We can’t freakin’ wait for this one. Sony’s said that one of the four games it will “deep dive” during its E3 2018 press conference next month is Death Stranding, and Hideo Kojima has been teasing the title’s latest trailer all over his Twitter. The auteur’s spent the past week posting pictures of Adobe P
This is realiti
Well whaddya know, Grimes has been hanging out with Hideo Kojima and the Death Stranding crew. For those out of the loop, Grimes is a Canadian musician who mainly dabbles in art pop. She's also a regular feature on the Push Square office stereo, so you can see why we're eager to pen this article. Anyway, Grimes has...
A post on Instagram has confirmed that Emily O'Brien and Troy Baker, one of the most prolific video game performers around, are set to appear in Death Stranding. The post comes from O'Brien herself as she, Baker, and Norman Reedus pose for a shot. If you're not familiar with her work, you'll have heard her voice characters such as...
Exclusive is ahead of its time
Looks like legendary director Hideo Kojima is about to rip up the rule book yet again, as Norman Reedus has been eulogising Death Stranding on a recent B&H Photography podcast. As reported by Metal Gear Informer, the actor described the PlayStation 4 exclusive as “mind blowing”, and hinted that t
"We've never seen a game being created at such a fast pace"
Hideo Kojima and protracted development cycles go together like cheese and pickle sandwiches, but it sounds like the Decima Engine is bringing Death Stranding to life quicker than anyone expected. Speaking in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation (as translated by Gematsu), director Hideo...
A few key questions answered
What the heck was that Death Stranding trailer about, then? IGN sat down with Hideo Kojima in order to ask that very question, and while the auteur shied away from some details, he was surprisingly candid in his responses about the game. So, where to start? How about the
Game makes sense after "four or five hours"
Death Stranding’s new trailer is not a CG concept – it’s running in real-time on the PlayStation 4 Pro, courtesy of Guerrilla Games’ stunning Decima Engine. In fact, according to creator Hideo Kojima there’s actually bits and pieces of gameplay in it – although it’s not immediately obvious...
The critics will be quick to point out that we still don't actually know what Death Stranding is, but don't let small details get in the way of genius. As expected, Hideo Kojima delivered an eight minute long cinematic masterpiece during The Game Awards 2017, and it's... Well, just watch it for yourself. It's absolutely mind-bogglingly...
Confirmed guest presenters
We’re a little bit torn on Death Stranding right now. It’s been a year since we last got an update on Hideo Kojima’s madcap PlayStation 4 exclusive, and part of us is gagging to see more. But we can’t help but feel it would be really cool if Sony and Kojima Productions resisted the urge to reveal more, and just...
And is as revolutionary as promised
Death Stranding, the next game from Metal Gear maker Hideo Kojima, is already playable on the PlayStation 4, according to PlayStation America boss Shawn Layden. Touching upon the title’s absence from E3 2017, the amiable executive admitted that he has played the game, and that it’s everything the auteur has...
But is he trolling?
Don’t expect anything new on Death Stranding at E3 2017 next week is the message from director Hideo Kojima on Twitter. While the auteur will be at the show and participating in an interview with Geoff Keighley on 14th June, the ex-Metal Gear man has warned that he won’t be bringing his new title to Los Angeles as his te
She can't say anything about that, apparently
Stefanie Joosten – the actress who lent her likeness to Quiet in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – has said that she "can't say anything about" potentially working with Hideo Kojima again. Much like Emma Stone, there have been persistent rumours that the star is set to appear in Death Stranding,...
Fake image emerges
Emma Stone is rumoured to be one of the characters in Hideo Kojima's upcoming Death Stranding – you can read the original report here if you want to know more. This weekend, however, an image has been doing the rounds purporting to show the award-winning actress' in-game character model. This is what it looks: The picture...
"That's a lovely rumour"
At this point, we can probably safely say that Hideo Kojima has been given a blank cheque by Sony to make Death Stranding. The auteur not only has one of the most stylish indie game offices in the universe, but he's also busy snapping up hot Hollywood talent like Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen to star in the game. And one...
We thought everyone hated Konami, so consider our surprise when we spotted £50 Bomberman smirking at us among the UK sales charts top ten today. Whatever. It seems that Hideo Kojima is still busy poaching staff from his ex-employer, as Horizon: Zero Dawn's credits list a number of names from the new Kojima Productions. Included in the...
Hideo Kojima has been chatting about Death Stranding and Guerrilla Games' Decima Engine, as he tends to do every couple of months or so. In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, the auteur has revealed that he believes the aforementioned Dutch developer's Decima Engine technology to be a "league ahead" of everyone else, and that's...
We didn't see this one coming, did you? That's a… Y'know, spot of sarcasm there in case you didn't detect it. As you should already know, Guerrilla Games and Kojima Productions have partnered on the Decima Engine which powers Horizon: Zero Dawn, so unsurprisingly there's an Easter egg for Hideo Kojima's next game buried among the...
Do you remember last year when Metal Gear man Hideo Kojima toured the world with PlayStation 4 architect Mark Cerny searching for an engine to run Death Stranding on? The auteur's voyage spanned America and Europe, stopping at every single one of Sony's first-party studios, including Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Media Molecule. But...
We need intel
Let's face it: we don't know much about Death Stranding or how it plays. Kojima's gone off on a few tangents in the past, alluding to stealth and hitting people with sticks - if we remember right - but it's difficult to picture gameplay until we've actually seen it. Still, at least we know that it's not going to join the ranks of...
Oh so Quiet
Hideo Kojima has said that he wants to take a "different approach" to the way that female characters are represented in PlayStation 4 exclusive Death Stranding. The auteur was chatting with the BBC's Newsbeat following a recent studio tour, and he said that he wants to avoid heroines who have "big breasts and no back story". He expla
Seeing is believing
Hideo Kojima has opened the doors to the new Kojima Productions for the first time, revealing the futuristic studio space where Death Stranding will be made. The company, which the auteur founded in late 2015 following his departure from Konami, is almost ready to begin full production on its PlayStation 4 exclusive project –...
Hideo Kojima has departed Konami – and he's bringing all of the top talent with him. The new Kojima Productions, which will launch Death Stranding exclusively on the PlayStation 4 as its first project, has quietly been fultoning high-ranked employees and adding them to its office. We already know that art director Yoji Shinkawa,...
Death Stranding's two trailers are connected – though you'll need a YouTube Doubler to understand exactly how. You may remember the first clip showing Norman Reedus clutching a baby before it disappears. Well, it turns out that – when played aligned with the new trailer – it's actually Guillermo del Toro's character who's pulling...
Mads Mikkelsen joins the cast
What the hell? Hideo Kojima accepted his industry icon award during The Game Awards 2016 this evening, and then decided to bring the house down with a feature-length trailer for his brand new PlayStation 4 exclusive, Death Stranding. In the clip, we see Guillermo Del Toro and Mads Mikkelsen. It looks more pretentious...
Dead or alive
First revealed during Sony's press conference at E3 back in the summer, Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima's typically batsh*t baby, and we may be seeing - or at least hearing - more about it at next month's PlayStation Experience. About time, we reckon. Obviously, we don't know much about Death Stranding at this point. All we've seen...
Death Stranding, the first PlayStation 4 exclusive project from Hideo Kojima, will release in 2018, the auteur has hinted. Speaking as part of a panel at the Tokyo Game Show, the veteran said: "It will be out before the Olympics. To go a little further, there is a movie called Akira, and it will be out before the year in which...
Hideo Kojima explains exclusive game
Hideo Kojima really taxed the translators at Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference today, talking cryptically about his upcoming game Death Stranding – which will launch exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Given that development on the title only started a few months ago, the acclaimed auteur didn't have...
Hideo Kojima – the creator of bonafide classics like Metal Gear Solid and, er, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – believes that Death Stranding, his brand new PlayStation 4 exclusive game, will be his greatest work to date. The veteran was speaking in Brighton at the Develop conference alongside fellow legend Mark Cerny, who...
Honestly? No idea
Death Stranding, the new game from Hideo Kojima, looked freakin' rad, didn't it? But, er, what the f**k was going on? That's exactly what the Internet's been trying to decipher for the past 24 hours – and it hasn't come up with any solutions yet. There are theories out there, though, which are fun to chat about, we suppose...
And it is very very weird
Hideo Kojima unveiled his new project at Sony's E3 press conference today, and it was delightfully bizarre. There is very little we actually know about the game - which is called Death Stranding - but here's our basic rundown of the trailer: Naked Norman Reedus is attached to a naked baby. The baby dissapears, but leaves a...
