Death Stranding Rumored details leaked; Multiple eras, PVP, Early 2020, PC release

Hideo Kojima’s PS4 exclusive Death Stranding will be one of the most anticipated titles for fans this E3. Years after the game’s announcement, we still know very little about the game so as E3 nears the rumor mill is in full swing. A supposed leaker on 4chan has put forth some juicy details that sound really exciting in my humble opinion.

Death Stranding is Kojima Production’s first project after them leaving Konami, the game is being published by Sony with them being heavily involved in helping with the game’s development.

Although nothing about the game so far makes sense check out the supposedly leaked details below:

Tons of weapons, vehicles, gadgets and gear from multiple era’s, from clubs to single shot muskets to energy swords.

The baby is something that exists as a singular, it is not something that is instanced each time you boot up the game. The baby is a single entity. He is what is causing the time distortions and dimensions crossing over, which is multiplayer.

When the community has reached the end of the game, there will need to be a global decision made to kill the baby and end DS multiplayer forever, or allow it to live and continue the multiplayer experience.

Players in other games can do things at certain points in time that will have a butterfly effect in your game, this can happen both while you are actively playing or while the game is off. They can be positive or bad things (Stick or rope)

PVP can happen at any point if you and another player accidentally cross timelines while time traveling.

When you die that timeline is closed forever, significant things that encapsulate that Sam’s story in that timeline will travel with you to the ocean floor before you re-emerge and continue in a new timeline. As you and other players pollute the ocean, it will cause sea-life to die and wash up on shore.

Early 2020 – Game got delayed internally.

yes it will be on PC at an undecided time after the PS4 release. Likely not for at least 12 months.

Sony wants it exclusive entirely, minimum contractual obligation is a year though. Well see after that. None of that is set in stone yet.

A PC release sounds really exciting but it’ll definitely be an issue convincing Sony considering their involvement in the game. Also voting on killing a baby? Kojima you crazy bastard!

Here’s some comments on the trailer:

Haven’t seen the entire final cut yet. It will be a lot more of the same though. Trailer will end with Sam laying naked and lifeless on the beach. At this point Kojima will take the stage, start the ps4 controller and the light coming on the controller will sync up with the light on Sam’s bracelet/handcuff. He will then stand up and we dive into gameplay. This is done as a continuous cut, at the end of the gameplay section we time travel backwards to the start of the trailer. We will see part of the trailer play out from the perspective of the player. The music the trailer is cut to will also sound as though its coming from off in the distance.

If i can be honest with you, its cool as fucking hell.

He will start the controller and it will be made to look like hes playing but its pre-recorded. The way Sony is doing their show this year makes it pretty easy to hide just due to setup and stuff. But that kind of thing isn’t uncommon at E3 anyway.

Now keep in mind, Kojima has been known to having themes of absurdist and other forms of expression in his works and while a lot of the stuff can be dismissed as just pure trolling, you have to keep in mind that Kojima has been known to play with the fan base, players and continue to catch us off guard every time.

Do take these rumors with a grain of salt but don’t they sound too elaborate to be fake? I mean 4chan’s previously been on a roll with the Pokemon leaks so why not this? I just can’t wait for E3 now!
