Our first look at Death Stranding gameplay shows Norman Reedus making deliveries

Screengrab via Kojima Productions

Finally, we know what Death Stranding will play like - or at least some of it. Sony's E3 2018 presentation revealed the first gameplay video for Kojima Productions' enigmatic project, and it did not disappoint in terms of weirdness. This didn't provide any clear indication on what the game is all about. Lea Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner will have roles in Death Stranding, and their in-game character models are based on their real-life appearance. Carrying the stranded remnants of the future in his hands, Sam embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time.

The gameplay we saw consisted of the main character Sam trying to navigate past the invisible monsters of Death Stranding using a device that alerts him to their location.

E3 2018: Everything we learned about Fallout 76 from Bethesda
Once you have assembled a full code, you can descend into one of the silos and launch a missile somewhere on the map. With the anticipated release of the new Fallout 76 coming in November, all of that has been taken away.

There's more babies in a tank, Hollywood A-listers and somber (beautiful) music to accompany a lot of Norman Reedus walking and ferrying things from one desolate piece of empty land to another. We also got to see two other new characters for the first time. Sam is not. He is a working man of sorts - a hands-on professional. Someone with a skillset akin to a blue-collar worker. Again, however, it's hard to tell what these mechanics will mean for the game at large. It's probably why everyone is putting up with the vague, unusual trailers that he and Kojima Productions have been putting out for Death Stranding since its announcement two years ago.

It goes without saying that Kojima still have plenty of secret from Death Stranding that he and his team have yet to unveiled.
