Sony has final­ly, offi­cial­ly revealed the release date for the much antic­i­pat­ed game, Death Strand­ing. It will be avail­able this fall, Novem­ber 8th, 2019 exclu­sive­ly for the PS4. A new game­play trail­er was also released, along with details on pre-order bonus­es and dif­fer­ent edi­tions of the game.

Hideo Koji­ma, cre­ator of Met­al Gear (and now Death Strand­ing), has a spe­cial mes­sage for fans before view­ing the trail­er:

Peo­ple have cre­at­ed “Walls” and become accus­tomed to liv­ing in iso­la­tion.
“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.
Now, please enjoy the lat­est Death Strand­ing trail­er.
