While Death Stranding is a PS4 exclusive (for now), we’ve seen nothing in terms of gameplay leading up to its November 8 release date. That is, until now. At Gamescom 2019’s Opening Night Live event, Hideo Kojima showed off a sliver of gameplay from Death Stranding. And if you were expecting anything along the lines of the gratuitous details we got of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain in the months leading up to its release, think again. Rather, Death Stranding’s PS4 gameplay amounted to watching protagonist Sam cradle a baby, urinate, put a ladder, and deliver a parcel to one-time journalist and Doritos Pope Geoff Keighley who is in Death Stranding as a non-playable character. Yes, in that order.
While Kojima did suggest that TGS 2019 will be where we see a more generous slice of what to expect from Death Stranding, it’s disturbing that we know so little leading up to the release. Hopefully it works out for the best. You can watch it right here.
In more tangible Death Stranding news, you can pre-order the Special Edition of the game in India right now.
Death Stranding has two limited edition variants — Special and Collector’s. While Sony is yet to confirm the latter, the former is indeed making it to India. Speaking to The Mako Reactor, retailers have been told that they will receive stock of Death Stranding Special Edition with pre-orders starting now.
The Death Stranding Special Edition price is Rs. 4,999 and should have a release date in line with the standard edition of the game — November 8, 2019. Expect the likes of Amazon and Flipkart to have it listed in addition to specialist storefronts like Games The Shop. Offline stores have already started taking pre-orders.
