Death Stranding Safe House Gameplay Revealed in New Trailer (VIDEO)
Why won’t Hideo Kojima let Norman Reedus shower? Why does he insist on zooming the camera in on his groin multiple times? Why does he want him to eat bugs? These are just a few of the many questions you may have after viewing the latest Death Stranding gameplay trailer. Hideo Kojima and his team have been showing a ton of new footage for Death Stranding at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
The first day of the event paid host to a nearly hour-long gameplay trailer that finally gave us a meaningful look at what kind of game Death Stranding is. While we’ve seen Norman Reedus shootin’, sneakin’, and scalin’ some rough terrain; I’m not quite sure we’ve seen anything in a Hideo Kojima game like what was shown today. Check out the 30-minute gameplay demo showing off Safe Houses here:
Based on the trailer, it seems that the Safe Houses will function as fast travel and/or rest points in the game. Players will be able to clean Norman up, customize the parts and colors of Norm’s equipment, as well as many other miscellaneous things. It all seems akin to the helicopter and oil rig base gameplay in Metal Gear Solid V, but expanded upon and more focused. In MGSV players could also shower and customize gear while in their base, but Death Stranding’s hub seems to have more personality. Norman Reedus treats the player camera like it takes up physical space in the world and will grab or otherwise interact with it.
Kojima ended the demo with a little more open-world gameplay, revealing an ability for the player to create Signs in the open world that other players will see. This seems very functionally similar to the Dark Souls message system, but more visual rather than verbal. We also got to see the urinating mechanic again, it’s still a crowd-pleaser. We’re all excited to grow mushrooms with our pee when Death Stranding releases on November 8th for PlayStation 4.
