A lot of new games and new trailers for upcoming games were announced on Gamescom Opening Night Live and Kojima Productions together with Sony Interactive Entertainment presented a bunch of new information about the upcoming game Death Stranding in three new trailers.
This time the focus is on Death Stranding characters. We get to see an introduction scene for character called Mama that is played by Margret Qualley. She is an American actress and dancer and is known for her role on HBO mystery series called The Leftovers (2014-2017). Mama explains why she can’t leave her location. She had a daughter who was born on “other side” and she is still connected to her by the umbilical cord. That’s why she can’t leave.
The second trailer shows character called Deadman and Bridge Baby. Deadman gets his looks from a Mexican filmmaker, author and actor Guillermo del Toro. He is known for his Academy Award-winning fantasy films as Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) and The Shape of Water (2017) – winning the Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture. Here we finally get full details on what Bridge Baby really is and what Sam is doing with it.
Deadman explains that a brain-dead mother of the baby (still woman) facilitates a connection between the world of the dead and the baby. The baby is connected to the world of the dead and as Sam connects to the baby it lets Sam the ability to sense BT’s. BT’s stand for Beach Things that are in some game theories believed to be dead people.
And last but definitely not least the third video shows Sam interacting with the Baby and creating a new Strand! In the previous trailer you can hear Deadman saying: “Remember that Babies are just equipment. Try not to get attached.” But in this video, we see Sam softly rocking the baby and after Sam falls the baby starts to and Sam jet again starts softly rocking the baby and talking to him saying “someone’s happy”. Interesting how that not-trying-to-get-attached” will work out for Sam.
Death Stranding is set to be released on November 8 exclusively to PlayStation 4.
