Death Stranding “Is Not A Stealth Game,” According To Hideo Kojima
The latest Death Stranding trailer to arrive may have been the best yet, but it has still left many fans with a bounty of questions. Thankfully, we now know when the title will launch, but plenty still remains a mystery. That said, Hideo Kojima has now disclosed that the upcoming experience “is not a stealth game.”
As many of you likely know, Kojima is best known for the Metal Gear Solid series, which features a plethora of stealthy goodness. Some of the elements that we have seen in Death Stranding footage so far certainly indicate that stealth aspects will be present, but that doesn’t mean it’s a stealth title. “It is a brand new action game with the concept of connection (strand),” Kojima said. “I call it Social Strand System, or simply Strand Game.”
