Death Stranding PS4
Death Stranding is an upcoming open-world action video game developed by Kojima Productions and released by Sony Interactive Entertainment on PlayStation 4. Its director is Hideo Kojima and will be his company's first game after the contract with Konami ends in 2015. Actor Norman Reedus will serve as the basis for the main protagonist. Kojima explained one of the main themes of the game through a short story by Japanese writer Kobo Abe, in which Abe says that the first tool created by humans was a stick, that it represented a protection between oneself and "bad things", and that the second tool was a rope, which used to be used to safely tie things that we consider important. Kojima compared the "main" tools in action games (sticking, shooting and kicking) with the sticks, and said that in Death Stranding he wants people to communicate through the equivalent that would be the strings. The title refers to when whales are stranded on the shores, remaining in the middle of one world and the other.
