With the Game Awards on tonight, the ceremony was also a time for the debut of new footage from several key upcoming games.
Few titles are more anticipated than “Metal Gear Solid” creator Hideo Kojima’s new title “Death Stranding”. Teased with an enigmatic brief trailer earlier this year, the new preview runs almost six minutes and is even stranger. Living foetuses in jars, war torn cities, Lovecraftian tentacles, a score like something out of “Suspiria”.
Fans will be able to see character designs based on filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, “Hannibal” actor Mads Mikkelsen and of course The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus who serves as the primary character. “Death Stranding” is a PS4 exclusive expected to debut sometime in 2018.
