Hideo Kojima has stretched on a themes and stream events that desirous Death Stranding, that is due to launch exclusively for PS4 this November.
Speaking in an talk with Game Informer (via VG247), a conduct of Kojima Productions was impossibly straightforward about what desirous his new outing: “It’s about America.”
“I done that map deliberately not rightly America. Maybe it looks like Japan from that angle. we wish people to not consider ‘America,’ though ‘where we are.’ Because it depends on who is saying it. And of course, it’s in a future, and everyone’s connected by internet, though everybody is fragmented. That’s kind of a embellishment as well.”
Hideo Kojima’s catalog is no foreigner to domestic themes, with Metal Gear Solid being an roughly unintelligible thread of domestic intrigue, troops strategy and a proceed thoughtfulness on how record would come to figure a world. In a way, it was roughly prophetic, if impossibly stupid during a same time.

Death Stranding appears to take a rather identical approach, with a tract following Norman’s Reedus’ impression Sam ‘Porter’ Bridges as he travels a fractured United States delivering packages and anticipating his deeds will assistance square a ebbing nation behind together.
Throughout a game, players will bond to UCA services (United Cities of America) joining opposite locations by an intertwining network that will eventually move them together. This is where a thought of ‘strand’ comes from in a title.
“It’s like 1984. Some people might not like that, and contend ‘I’m not going to bond to UCA, since we’re going to repeat a same thing that we did.’ Like Trump, or a EU, these things. It’s a metaphor,” explains Kojima, touching on Trump’s administration and potentially Brexit, and how these events have usually left multitude some-more divided than ever before. Death Stranding takes this thought to a extreme, throwing in paranormal elements for good measure.
The account of Death Stranding is elementary during a core, though all of a surprising concepts surrounding it give Kojima Production’s entrance tour a bizarre turn that hardcore fans will expected spend months delving into. In terms of gameplay, it feels like a fascinating reduction of Metal Gear Solid and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of a Wild. Players are let lax in a outrageous universe filled with possibilities, and over a categorical campaign, we can make it your own.
