Up until Gamescom, trailers for Death Stranding left fans with way more questions than answers, but thanks to the latest gameplay and trailers revealed, we have a better idea of what's going on in the world the game is set in.

The second video introduces Deadman (portrayed by Guillermo del Toro). Dead Man explains to Sam that all the gooey babies in containment vats are known as "bridge babies" or "BBs" which are taken from "still mothers". It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the "Strand" or connection.

"You saw what the BB was about, and you saw that Sam always had this baby in his pod, and wondering what it was about". In one of the scenes, Sam falls from a high place and then he has to calm the baby down because the abrupt motion made him cry.


Throughout the game you'll maintain a symbiotic bond with the BB throughout the game.

"When you start to connect like this in the game with preppers and others, you'll notice you're connected to the people worldwide". Kojima began. "If you try to move the camera and try to see what he's doing, Sam will move away so you'll never see, actually, what he's doing", Kojima confirmed. "So, don't worry Norman fans...you don't have to worry about that", Kojima assured fans. Kojima stated that if many players choose to pee in the same spot, interesting things may happen.

The gameplay itself showed off Sam in an open world, delivering a large bit of cargo and urinating for a few moments out of nowhere before shouting into the open as he travels across a rocky hillside. Sam also can not urinate with other people around him.


Starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, and Lindsay Wagner. Yes, this was basically a Death Stranding press conference in disguise. With spectral creatures plaguing the landscape, and the planet on the verge of a mass extinction, it's up to Sam Bridges to journey across the ravaged wasteland and save mankind from impending annihilation.

You'll be able to rock babies and pee to your heart's content when Death Stranding launches on November 8 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
