Death Stranding needs “collaboration from different people from different parts of the world”

Death Stranding will feature collaboration between players, according to Mads Mikkelsen.

We know next to nothing about Death Stranding, but it will require collaboration from different players around the globe.

Speaking with Total Film magazine (thanks, GamesRadar), Death Stranding star Mads Mikkelsen mentioned that little tidbit while he was discussing the game’s motion capture process.

“It’s been a little surreal, because obviously there’s nothing. We do everything. It’s mo-cap. But the storyboard is so immaculate,” said Mikkelsen. “[Kojima] tries to explain it again and again and again, and I thought I had it, but then this happens and I’ve lost it again. It’s too complicated. It’s too crazy. It’s too beautiful.”

Mikkelsen said while he doesn’t know much about the game (we’re right there with you, Mads) what little he has seen “it’s wonderful.”

“The whole concept of playing the game, as I understand, needs collaboration from different people from different parts of the world”, he said. “I’ve never seen anything like this, and [Kojima’s] not happy with it yet! It’s going to be ballistic.”

The game’s other star, Norman Reedus said previously the game will feature social media elements, so Mads comments make a bit of sense.

We’ll get a more in-depth look at Kojima’s game next month at E3 2018. Sony said its presentation this year will feature “exclusive looks and deep dives” on four of its big titles, and Death Stranding is one of those.
