Death Stranding Is Launching This November; Collector’s Edition Includes Life-Sized Baby

Remember, remember, the eighth of November

I’ll be honest with you, a week ago I didn’t think that in seven days time I’d be here writing the words ‘Death Stranding release date revealed’. But as we’ve all seen, the games industry works in mysterious ways, probably no one more so than industry icon and Darryl Dixon’s number one fan Hideo Kojima.

Over the past few days PlayStation and Kojima have been teasing some sort of announcement regarding Death Stranding. At first it was thought maybe it would be a simple gameplay trailer, giving players a proper look at what to expect from Kojima’s latest piece of art.

Then more info started to leak, beginning with a screenshot of a PSN preorder page and then PlayStation’s Taiwan Twitter accidentally leaked the game’s release date of November 8, 2019.

A few hours later everything was confirmed with an 8-minute trailer – Death Stranding would launch on November 8.

It comes as a surprise given the word on the street was that The Last of Us Part II was going to grace our PS4 later this year.

A host of different editions were announced, including a Collector’s Edition that features a life-sized baby pod. EB Games currently have the Collector’s Edition listed at an estimated price of $299.95 AUD, as well as an exclusive Special Edition for $119.95 AUD and the standard game for $99.95 AUD. You can find all three right here.

If you’re still not sure what Death Stranding is you can read this explanation from Kojima himself:

“Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.

And finally, enjoy the game’s release date trailer below:
