Hideo Kojima's new Death Stranding trailer is just as weird as before

Earlier rumors pointed to Kojima Productions using a modified version of Sucker Punch's Infamous: Second Son engine but now we know Kojima settled on another Sony studio's technology. A new trailer for the game featuring Norman Reedus (following Kojima from Silent Hills) and Mads Mikkelson premiered at The Game Awards.

Why don't you see it again and tell us what secrets you have found. Then the camera moves down the tunnel, revealing a squadron of skeletal soldiers. At the end of the trailer, it was confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen will also appear in the game. He opens the capsule and plops an animated baby doll into a growing body of water. His expressions make it amply clear that he's the bad guy, but there's a lot more details in there that we simply do not understand. It's beautifully weird and utterly inexplicable. The goal of the infant is unknown, but del Toro retrieves it after spotting a number of heavily armed soldiers, so perhaps infants are used by the characters in Death Stranding for power. But I'm not sure that Eat Standing makes a terribly good video game title either. However, since he left Konami, we were eager to see the return of Hideo Kojima - creator of the Metal Gear franchise. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami. We might not have long to wait to find out, as Kojima will be hosting a panel at this weekend's PSX to discuss the tech behind the game. "It will feel familiar". The game's director was literally "locked in a separate room on a different floor" than his development team. "The story is about connections, what you call "strands" in psychology - how people are connected". Any idea what the hell is going on?

The newest trailer did very little to clear anything up about what this game actually is, but the mysterious visual design and creepy fetus motif it featured made for some brilliant and hilarious internet reactions. Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead was starring as the protagonist. "Otherwise, I'll work with someone and his house would explode or something, you know?"
