The anticipation and excitement surrounding Death Stranding 2: On the Beach is at an all-time high, despite the fact that there are more questions than answers when it comes to the details and progress of the game. The latest presentation at Sony’s State of Play has left the community in a flurry of theorizing and speculation about what to expect in Kojima Productions’ new adventure starring Sam Porter Bridges.
To add fuel to the fire, the creators of the game have shared never-before-seen details through a 50-minute documentary on Kojima’s new projects on the HideoTube YouTube channel, which has been silent for a long time. This has only sparked further speculation and excitement among fans.
In Death Stranding 2, players once again step into the shoes of Sam Porter Bridges to establish the Chiral Network in a different territory from the first game, although the specifics are not yet detailed. The video provided explanations for the new adventure, revealing that the private company Drawbridge, led by the character Fragile, will be responsible for the task as the UCA cannot be involved due to it possibly being considered an invasion.
The video also delves into details about the characters confirmed so far. Fragile will be taking on a more significant role and leading a new group called Drawbridge, while Léa Seydoux’s character is expected to have a crucial influence in the game. Elle Fanning’s character remains shrouded in mystery, leaving fans to speculate if she will be an ally or an enemy.
The game will also feature real-time ground deformations such as earthquakes, forest fires, and floods to create obstacles along the routes, making the journey more difficult for Sam. Additionally, a mobile ship called the Magellan will accompany the protagonist in the game, allowing for movement in connected areas and easy access throughout the adventure. The title will also include “many vehicles” for players to navigate around the map.
Kojima and his team also touched upon the graphics of Death Stranding 2, expressing their confidence in achieving significant visual improvements in the coming weeks, promising an extremely detailed adventure.
Lastly, the HideoTube video briefly addressed the reasons for the development of Physint, an action and espionage game that Kojima is working on. It was confirmed that Kojima finally decided to work on a new action and espionage game as per the request of users who have been waiting for a new Metal Gear game for years, something that was not forged until 2020 when he went through a serious illness.
Overall, excitement continues to build for Death Stranding 2, and fans are eagerly awaiting further details about the highly anticipated game. Stay tuned for more updates and details.
