On May 29, Sony released a brand new Death Stranding trailer, including a release date for the game. Since its initial unveiling years ago, some questioned whether it would come out on the PlayStation 5. This is not the case, as the game will come out on November 8, 2019, right in time for the holidays, for the PlayStation 4. The trailer was a whopping eight minutes long and included snippets of gameplay, cinematics, the full cast for the game — essentially the whole shibang. There’s still much that we don’t understand about the game; so much is shrouded in mystery. It looks incredible though.

Gameplay wise, the trailer showcased both exploration and combat. While exploration was revealed at E3 2018, combat was not. The terminology in the trailer is completely foreign, but this adds a level of mistique to the game and leaves gamers itching for more. The cinematics are top-notch and showed off a number of emotional moments. Sony went all-out with their full unveil of the game, and announcing a release date adds even more hype to an already highly-anticipated title. Kojima has always come up with whacky ideas, but Death Stranding takes this to a whole new level. That’s a part of its charm though, not only Kojima’s, but the game itself.

The full cast of the game was also revealed and includes some superstars such as Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Sedoux, Margaret Qualley, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Troy Baker. Voice overs will be done by Emily O’Brian, Jesse Corti, and Darren Jacobs.

From everything seen in the trailer, Death Stranding appears that it will deliver in all fronts and will be an experience like no other. It is a must-have for all PlayStation 4 owners, and given that it is being released this November, The Last of Us Part II may be pushed back to early 2020. This makes perfect sense, as releasing two games so close together would take away from sales for both games. They are Sony’s crowning achievements for the PlayStation 4 and they want them both to have their own time to shine.

Again, Death Stranding will be available on the PlayStation 4 on November 8, and it can’t come soon enough.
