Influential game director Hideo Kojima revealed Death Stranding: Director’s Cut at the Summer Game Fest on Thursday. No release date was specified, although the end of the trailer said it would come soon.
The cinematic trailer showcased protagonist Sam Porter Bridges in an environment reminiscent of the Metal Gear franchise, with guards patrolling a warehouse filled with obstructions. Sam takes a cardboard box, an iconic item from the Metal Gear series, pours out its contents, and briefly entertains hiding inside it before placing it back on its shelf. Whether or not this is simply a coy reference to the Metal Gear series or hints at Metal Gear-related content in the Director’s Cut remains to be seen.
This post will be updated shortly.
