Death Stranding: Everything You Missed in the New Trailer - Fri, 12/02/2016 - 19:18

In the beginning of the new Death Stranding teaser, we get an opening very similar to its reveal trailer from E3 2016: a panning shot of dead sea creatures scattered around in the mud. This time, we get a much clearer shot of the strands of black wire running across the sand and directly into the abdomens of a number of dead crabs.

In an interview at E3 this year, game director Hideo Kojima told IGN that Death Stranding will be played not with “sticks” like in most games — guns or other weapons — but “ropes.” We’ll see this manifest quite literally later in the trailer, but for now the wired-up crustaceans act as cryptic foreshadowing. They also call to mind Gyo, Junji Ito’s sci-fi horror manga about an invasion of technobiologically reanimated sea creatures.
