About the upcoming action-adventure game

Developed by Kojima Productions and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, "Death Stranding" is an upcoming action-adventure video game set in an open-world gaming environment. "Death Stranding," which features multiplayer functions, is the first game from the Japanese video designer, Hideo Kojima, and his own studio Kojima Productions after Kojima’s disbandment from his former employer Konami in 2015.

In developing the game, Kojima has teamed up with Dutch-based game developer Guerilla Games, the company behind the popular PS4-exclusive titles "Horizon Zero Dawn" and "Killzone" series. The Dutch-based company has provided the proprietary game engine Decima, which helps Kojima in the development of their upcoming game.

The game was first announced at Sony’s conference during the E3 2016 gaming event with a trailer. The game features Norman Reedus and Mad Mikkelsen, who provide the voice and motion capture for the game’s main characters. Lea Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Mads Mikkelsen, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Troy Baker have also provided voice performances, motion capture, and 3D scanning. The name "Death Stranding" is a reference to the cetacean stranding, a phenomenon in which sea creatures such as dolphins and whales strand themselves on the beach.

"Death Stranding" will be officially released on November 8, exclusively on Sony’s PlayStation 4 console. The game will be made available in standard and collector’s editions. The Collector’s editions will cost around $200 and will include a life-sized BB Pod statue. For more about "Death Stranding" and pre-order bonuses just visit the game’s pre-order guide online.
