Death Stranding özgü always been a strange and surreal video game but during the latest look of its sequel, Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, Kojima and co. have amped the weird to 11.
The first look was the closer to Sony’s Playstation State of Play livestream that took place on Wednesday, which featured other games like Metro: Awakening and the Silent Hill 2 remake. None of that, however, could top what Kojima cooked up for his latest game, a sequel to the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic delivery simulator Death Stranding.
In this 9-minute announcement trailer, we’ve learned that Norman Reedus’ Sam Porter Bridges is back on a new journey around the world to connect the globe lest humanity face extinction. Among many of the dreamlike visuals on offer during the trailer, there’s BB spitting a flying ship out of its mouth, Troy Baker’s Higgs as an Eric Draven-inspired robot samurai, and oh yeah, the low frame rate talking puppet.
No, I did not make any of this shit up. Yes, it’s still a walking simulator. There’s no release date yet, but do yourself a favor and go watch the trailer for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach right now.
