Hideo Kojima Explains That Demise Stranding Is Not Precisely A Stealth Sport
We lastly received our first have a look at Demise Stranding’s precise gameplay final week in anticipation of its launch later this yr and it would not look solely completely different from the basics of Metallic Gear Stable. There’s sneaking and then you definately get caught and then you definately run and then you definately straight up homicide individuals. However in the event you had been to categorise it as a stealth title, director Hideo Kojima would disagree with you.
As an alternative, Kojima insists, it is…a strand sport.

We’d simply need to persist with “motion sport” on this one, however Kojima’s tweet does reiterate his emphasis on the sport’s theme of connections. So at very least the identify Demise Stranding makes extra sense now that it did when it was first revealed a number of years in the past.
It additionally speaks a bit to Kojima’s priorities on the title. He needs to emphasis that connection over what would generally be thought of the first mechanics of the sport. It is usually not like Kojima finds coining new phrases for video games to be notably alien to him, because the developer coined the time period “transfarring” when referring to shifting save information over from PS3 to Vita within the finally cancelled Zone of the Enders Assortment, although it did seem on PlayStation three nonetheless.
Demise Stranding releases on PlayStation four on November eight.
