A release date and new trailer dropped for Death Stranding today.

Death Stranding has finally seen a full reveal, with a new trailer and information on exactly what it entails.

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

Leaks earlier today provided that information, but a confirmation is always nice.

Here’s the synopsis provided by Hideo Kojima on the PS Blog:

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.

The game is out for PlayStation 4 on November 8 and is available now for pre-order.
