According to the Best Buy synopsis as seen here:

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/death-stranding-playstation-4/5360401.p?skuId=5360401

When the main character, named Sam, dies, the player is sent to another world, referred to as an upside-down world submerged in water.

Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding

Carrying the stranded remnants of the future in his hands, Sam embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world one step at a time

What is the mystery of the Death Stranding

What will Sam discover on the road ahead

A genre defining gameplay experience holds these answers and more

Original Synopsis of the game:
Let your heart skip a beat with Death Stranding for the PlayStation 4. Built for the bold-hearted, this thrilling episode is a pioneer in the genre of stealth gaming. Give your brain a workout by foiling your opponents and scheming your way to triumph as you navigate haunting landscapes, mesmerizing backdrops and scenes that give you goosebumps in Death Stranding. Life and death are connected to each other

Release Date: November 8, 2019

I'm super excited for this game.

"Sam, we really are the Death Stranding."

I still remember losing my mind when Mads Mikkelsen was shown. Seeing him perform in Hannibal just hyped me more. He's a fantastic actor. Same reaction with Lea Seydoux.

I had no idea there was actually a synopsis out there for that. So characters are in some kind of afterlife or something. That makes sense.

Man, can't wait for this game. Anything Kojima is a Day 1 buy. This game looks so mysterious, freaking love what they have shown so far.

It’s Kojima. I’m there no matter what.

It’s just icing that I think Death stranding looks legitimately fantastic.

Is there anything new about the game?
Seems every information on this thread was already known. I've seen that synopsis after E3.

That said, I can't wait for this game.

Very jazzed! As always, since Hideo has not let me down yet. And in particular I can't wait to see where his career goes now that he can do anything he wants. And since I love David Lynch, nice to see him in an even more surreal wheelhouse, and he happens to be tweeting about Twin Peaks a bit lately.

I don't know if I can even trust that description, that's how goddamn mysterious this game is to me; I don't even trust pressers. That being said, I'm in like Flynn of course.

Yeah all the info in that synopsis has been known but I'm really curious to see how this purgatory area you get transported to works, it sounds very interesting. I wonder if kojima is going mythical or more "scientific" on this one or both!

Also, I wonder if gear and protection against environmental hazards is going to be a mechanic in the game. I'm assuming time fall can age you to death so I wonder if theirs going to be any other things we'll have to watch out for besides monsters. Some of the environments in that last trailer looked pretty dangerous

That song, "Asylum for the Feelings" is such a perfect fucking song for the latest trailer of Death Stranding. I'm so captivated by it.Kojima has great taste in music.

I'll be waiting for that Yongyea breakdown video of this synopsis.

All seriousness though, I can't wait for this game. If Spider-Man wasn't releasing so soon Death Stranding would be at the top of my most hyped list.

I doubt Kojima will put every cutscene into every trailer this time.

For some reason it just occurred to me that these 'enemies' are similar in concept to Doctor Who's Weeping Angels. There is probably more to it, but it seems like being caught by them transports you to another point in time or alternate timeline.

It's hard to really gather concrete information from all of this, but damn am I pumped to figure out what the hell is going on in this game.

The question is: what happens if the player never dies? the game is focusing on multiple deaths and going back and forht between both worlds tos ee the impact of your deaths hence the name Death Stranding. I hope Kojima is aware of this and prepared a good experience for the skileld players that will neevr die so they can fully profit from the game and not just force some deaths through the sceanrio to show his vision.

Metal Gear Solid gameplay was more than just Kojima,so how many ex Kojima Production gameplay developers are working on this game? I'm not so sure why people have so much faith that just Kojima being just is a good thing.

I hope this doesn't turn out a hollow game like MGSV.

Also did someone find out Kojima's spotify playlist yet?

Btw I should stop reading Kojima the way Geoff Keighley says it: Kuh-jeema!

There's already 24 minute of trailer footage for this game? O_o

And we still know so little about the game .lol
The more they show the less knowledge I seem to have of the game, wtf?

Seeing Lea Seydoux on a game is quite strange...
Don't know if it's a good idea, people hate her in France.

What I find so interesting about this project is that going off all of the location scouting tweets and the hidden paintings in PT, this game has been in some sort of pre-production since Kojima was at Konami. That’s such a long time for an idea to gestate that I find it hard to believe this game can be anything other than his magnum opus. I’m so excited for it.

I remember being cold on the recent e3 trailer, but it really is something beautiful now that I’ve had time to reflect and watch it again.

Kojima has been a game dev since the 80s. He has a proven track record. It's exciting seeing what he can finally do outside of Metal Gear and Konami

I'm secretly hoping the plot of Death Stranding goes fully into Neil Breen territory. I don't think Norman Reedus will have godlike powers, but he is running around in the wilderness.
