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...
