Death Stranding is a game which has piqued the interest of many within the gaming community. There have been only 2 trailers released since it’s initial announcement at Sony’s E3 2016 Press Conference.
That might all change though this week at The Game Awards since most of the key individuals associated with the project will be not only in attendance for the event , but will also be presenters as well.
Yes indeed! The presenters being The Legend Hideo Kojima The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus and Hellboy and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro. Now that’s a three way deadlock on the game apparent appearance because the most common thing between the three is Death Stranding. With Kojima and del Toro as the creative minds behind the project and Norman Reedus playing the protagonist.
Hideo Kojima has bounced back after the fallout with Konami. The company created unnecessary hurdles for Kojima San and even barred Kojima from accepting an award for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in the category of Best Action/ Adventure game back in 2015. The award was accepted by actor Kiefer Sutherland instead, who voiced the protagonist in the critical acclaimed title. Geoff Keighley explained the situation to loud boos from the audience. Since then though Kojima has gone strength to strength while Konami has arguably been floundering.
It was Geoff Keighley has been doing quite his fair share of work to hype up the upcoming award show over the past few days teasing upto 14 “world premieres” (another word for some new trailers) With upto 4 more announcements during its Pre-Show.In a recent Q&A session with Keighley was quite vague on what level games are set to join Death Stranding at the show adding,
“Everybody has a different opinion of what a ‘triple-A’ game is. We have some really cool surprises and new game announcements that will happen at the show. Up to you to decide if they are triple-A, megaton level, or whatever you’re expecting.”
The Game Awards 2017 takes place this Thursday (December 7) at 5:30 pm PT. You can watch on YouTube, Twitch, and several other streaming platforms, or directly through your Xbox One or PS4.
