Death Stranding Available November 8 on PS4

Watch the new trailer and get your first look at its Special and Collector's Editions.

It fills me with joy to announce that , the latest project from legendary game creator Hideo Kojima, will be available November 8 on PS4.

In Death Stranding, play as Sam Bridges and traverse a ravaged nation to reconnect a fractured society and save mankind from the brink of extinction.

A special message from Hideo Kojima:

People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation.

“Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.

Now, please enjoy the latest Death Stranding trailer.

  • Heck yes, can’t wait for this game. The trailer looks AMAZING!

    • iamtylerdurden1

      One of the best trailers ever. Death Stranding is legit. Wow.

    • I can’t wait either. String theory, parallel universes, world of the dead, I know this games gonna be good. I’ve only preordered ONE game out of the 320 PS3,ps4 games I own…TLOU. THIS GAME IS MY SECOND PREORDER!

    • I agree can’t wait to play the game has me intrigued and confused at the same time.

    • Agreed, going to Pre-order now!!! Kojima’s back !!!!!!!!!

  • Great gameplay reveal! I was on the fence because of what we’d seen so far, but this now intrigues me quite a bit!

  • Just finished watching this live on Twitch, looking forward to…Nov 8th can’t come soon enough!

  • TheMoonWizard77

    Very excited!

  • Mercenary09

    Yes! Game of the Year incoming! It looks so good Kojima.

  • Another First Party SIE WWS Game can’t wait!

  • THE-PLASTICA-MAN

    Can you please answer me about this? I know all Sony games have pre-order items that don’t get sold later separately afetr launch unlike Square-Enix and Capcom games. The only Sony game who made an exception was Spider-Man, having some pre-orders costumes that were unlockable later in the game so no one would miss any content from the game. Here it says ingame pre-order content are obtainable through story progression. Does that mean they are like Spider-Man where you get them instantly when you pre-order the game or you can unlock them later when you play the game without pre-order or is it only through pre-order that those items get available later when you progress in the story?

    • soundandvision77

      It seems to be worded like these are gold versions of the items that you would unlock during the game, which suggests to me that they are exclusive versions that you can’t get later. I could be wrong though!

      But wow, $20 extra to get the Digital Deluxe edition for a few DLC items and soundtrack is a bit much. I know that’s the way it goes these days, but yeesh!

  • Already pre-ordered! I can not pass on Kojima’s masterpiece.

  • The Image links (for different editions) are not working

  • Collector’s Edition ordered! Yeeeeeusssssssss

  • LaFlame_Jack

    Where can i preorder collector’s edition from italy?

    • I tried to get it in Canada, only Ships to US.

      So why they even have the CAD Price on there makes NO SENSE.

      eBAY it is… You don’t want to see those prices already climbing.

      It is, as of now, Best Buy (US) and Game Stop (US).

  • Is it just me or does it kinda feel weird such a game being announced this way. That said it looks great!!!

    • Nah I feel the same but Sony is supposedly skipping E3 so they didn’t have much choice.TGS would be too close to the launch.

  • iamtylerdurden1

    Wow

  • Hello and congrats to Kojima San, Kojima Productions, Guerilla and Sony! Monumentes moment for fans and Hideo himself, so happy and so proud! Question: Who is scoring the soundtrack?

  • I hope this insane game is a hit, because if it flops it might be the last for Gojira. Like Joe Biden levels of creepiness.

  • Still no “Only on PlayStation” logo on the box….

  • UNCLEBEATDOWN

    Sold!

  • The most amazing thing my eyes have witnessed.

  • Is it too early to call this game of the year? Damn, the Decima Engine is looking spectacular these days, thanks Guerrilla Games and Horizon Zero Dawn!

  • Looking slick still somewhat confused about the game. So this is just like a survival or what kind of game ?

  • Hello, I preordered the game with Amazon Canada around E3 2017. Do I get access to the chibi avatar now or upon release, along with the theme?

    Thanks. Game looks incredible!

    • LOL I did too! I preordered a bunch of games at that time after Amazon price matched with Wal-Mart. ;)

  • Apocalyptica – Path Vol5 for the soundtrack

  • As soon as the Special Edition shows up on either Best Buy Canada or EB Games, I’ll preorder it, because of Kojima’s historical pedigree alone.

  • Konami should offer to sell the IP rights of metal gear to Kojima because without him that’s about the only future their company will have of making any decent money off of that franchise now sure they had somewhat decent luck with survive but lets face it they were a one hit wonder and Konami got lucky but without Kojima he game will never be the same his fans followed him NOT the company and letting him go was a bad financial move on their end

  • Can we vote for Game of the Year based on a trailer?

  • Heavenly_king

    2019 the bike year!!!!

  • I’m an easy mark for a special edition physical release of anticipated game with a nice Steelbook Case

  • hey guys

    any idea when the collector addition well be available to preorder on amazon?

    • BIOHAZARDjihen_

      Would also like to know this

    • I think they may be sold out. I’m sure they’re going to restock soon

    • I missed it too, I’m waiting on PlayAsia. It will probably cost a bit more ($50.00 more) but they still have overstock of Resident Evil 2 remake which I bought via their site so I’m waiting for it to show up there. You’d better bookmark their website because typically Japanese are fanatics for Kojima games and it will sell out quickly. Right now they just have the standard version but the collector’s edition will show up for sure. It will be in Japanese but play on US/foreign systems.

    • sunonthesea

      I just preordered it via Walmart.com

  • tonydamiani

    Collectors Edition Pre-ordered! Can’t wait for November. Hopefully no Hurricanes…

    • Francium_Killer

      Where did you order that? Every site is showing not available now :(

  • This is awesome

  • TheMeanPanda

    When/where can we pre-order the Collector’s Edition in Canada?

  • Iamseven777

    La versión coleccionista llegará a Latinoamerica?
    :(

    • Alguien sabe si sera exclusivo? Someone knowsif this game will be sony exclusive

  • Francium_Killer

    Is there any information about a limited edtion console for this game considering it is such a huge release? I mean spider man got its own console…

    • sunonthesea

      maybe in Japan eventually, check PlayAsia occasionally for that. Kojima is huge among console gaming fans, not nearly as big a deal as Spiderman franchise though, but both are Sony exclusives so you have a point there.

  • Seriously excited for this game. Preordered and ready to go

  • Does anyone know when it will be available for pre-ordering in Canada? I have seen those links om the States’ online store such as Gamestop.

    • sunonthesea

      do they have Walmart in Canada? if so I just preordered mine from there.

  • Still need more action gameplay footage, I really hope the action isn’t limited in this title like how Uncharted 4 was.

  • Three_Moons

    Um, oh noez, Collector’s Edition already sold out? Is Sony selling these directly? Me want…

  • gor1llap1mp

    Hello

  • ThePotatoElite

    The Walking Dead fan here, and this one is a true Game of The Year for me!

  • A few hours after this was posted and immediately when I found out and I can’t even order the Collectors Edition anymore from either GameStop or Bestbuy…. Amazon doesn’t have it yet… I REALLY HOPE they allow more pre-orders… PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT TO PURCHASE ONE! SMH…

  • Jammers211989

    Day 1 for me! so excited about this game..

  • NukePistols

    I noticed something in the trailer that nobody is talking about. The box cover does not say Only on PlayStation like all exclusive games.

    • That’s because it is only a timed exclusive on the PS4, and will come to PC at a later date.

    • It is a PS exclusive, Sony owns the engine that the game is made on.

    • Yeah being Decima doubt it’ll go to PC but if it goes I’ll be extremely disappointed and kinda just kinda regret pre-ordering.

  • BobbyTheFlame

    Metal Gear Survive still has better gameplay honestly, But nice try Kojima.

  • I’m excited for this game, but I don’t see November 8th release date coming to fruition. Pretty much every Kojima release will have a release date and it usually releases about a year later. This is because Kojima is a perfectionist. That is a good thing. Still excited for the eventual release date, but I won’t be convinced until it goes gold.

  • sunonthesea

    I finally got in my preorder via Walmart. This has to be one of the coolest collector’s editions! that case and the little baby pod is insanely unique.

  • Day 1 buy of course,pre-ordered already.Was looking forward to see more about it and damn that was a lot,didn’t have time but will watch with more attention.Really eager to fully understand Death Stranding and I think it’s a bit early to call it GOTY…if Ghost of Tsushima releases this year too it’ll be tough but anyway I believe in what Kojima has been saying about it…might be a revolutionary game indeed.Anyway can’t wait the hype is real.

    PS:Wish I could get that collector’s…so damn cool.

    PPS:Nice message to the fans at the end of the trailer,I guess that dialogue won’t be in the final game lol.

  • GordoMillones

    Cant wait

  • sunonthesea

    for any still needing to preorder, I noticed PlayAsia hasn’t got their allotment online yet so there will more than likely be a window to get either the US Collector’s Edition or the Japanese version which will sell out almost instantly more than likely. Despite already getting in my preorder via Walmart I’m still waiting to see if the Japan CE edition offers something unique which they often do(otherwise is will be identical to the US version)
