After Gamescom 2019’s bizarre Death Stranding showing, a proper Death Stranding gameplay reveal is slated for Tokyo Game Show 2019 (TGS 2019). Creator Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to announce that it won’t be a live demo for the game. Instead it would be a 49 minute video in which map and items have been edited out to prevent any spoilers. The reason for Death Stranding’s gameplay reveal to be pre-recorded rather than live has to do with the usual issues you’d expect an event like TGS 2019 — namely the fear of failing a live demo and possible network issues. Hopefully the latter doesn’t imply that Death Stranding is an always-online game.

Death Stranding TGS 2019 gameplay reveal date and time

The Death Stranding TGS 2019 gameplay reveal date is September 12 and will take place from 3:30pm JST (noon IST).

Previously, Kojima announced Death Stranding would ship with a very easy mode. Death Stranding is a PS4-exclusive game with a November 8 release date and it seems that even non-gamers shouldn’t have a problem playing it. Kojima claimed that those who weren’t able to finish the first level of Pac-Man would be able to finish Death Stranding.

When games and game developers pride themselves on being exceptionally tough and challenging, its heartening to see Kojima go in a direction that’s a lot more accepting and accessible. Perhaps the only challenge in Death Stranding would be understanding what exactly is going on in the game?

Death Stranding is out on November 8 for PS4.
