E3 2018: Death Stranding Trailer Blew Our Minds and Confused Our Senses

Mads Mikkelsen and Lindsay Wagner also appear.

Recently at YouTube Live E3 2018, Geoff Keighley had a chance to interview Kojima and he asked him about the playable characters and lack of combat in the E3 trailer.

Hideo Kojima's, the creator of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, has devoted all of his attention to the PS4-exclusive Death Stranding.

By that, we meant that he actually left utterly confused once again just like the first three teaser trailers that he and his team at Kojima Productions have released for the past two years.

E3 2018 coverage at Giant Bomb: Still more commentary and news from E3, from our colleagues at Giant Bomb.

The trailer opens with a fetus giggling and rolling around, and only gets weirder from there.

Kojima revealed three new pieces of key art for the game, showing the character Sam Bridges, as well as the characters played by Seydoux and Wagner.

We also got a brief glimpse into world traversal, as we saw Sam carrying a variety of packages through environments like rocky mountain ranges and rivers.

The scenes jump from one situation and location to the next which make it hard to put each scene into context. It's probably why everyone is putting up with the vague, unusual trailers that he and Kojima Productions have been putting out for Death Stranding since its announcement two years ago. On an artistic level, the trailers are definitely effective in evoking a certain sense of horror, shock, even aversion.
