Death Stranding PS4 PlayStation 4

We're still collecting ourselves in the aftermath of yesterday's onslaught of Death Stranding goodness. Having watched the excellent new trailer a number of times, it looks as though stealth may play a key role. In the video, we see protagonist Sam hiding from enemies in long grass, and attempting to sneak past the creepy BTs -- Beached Things, in case you were wondering what that stands for.

However, despite this, Hideo Kojima has plainly stated this crazy PlayStation 4 exclusive "is not a stealth game." Well, what is it then, Koj?

Oh, right. It's a Strand Game. We don't really know what that means, either, but we're excited to find out.

After creating one of the stealth genre's most iconic series with Metal Gear Solid, it seems the creative madman is trying something brand new. If Death Stranding doesn't share stealth in common with MGS, it certainly has its fascinating characters with bonkers names.

Anyway, even though it seems stealth will be part of the action, it's apparently not the focus -- so says the main man himself.
