Story details from a post-showcase interview with Kojima have come out. Was misled by conflicting information; this is half from the trailer's description and half speculation based on an old leak that turned out surprisingly accurate.

Like I speculated a page back, it's a post-apocalypse brought on by an event called "The Death Stranding", caused by some Eldritch Abomination / Starfish Aliens and the mysterious phlebotinum "Chiralium," and Sam is a courier in this desolate world. The story revolves around his latest, most important job - safely transporting THE BABY (which was genetically engineered for an as-yet-unknown purpose) across the dangerous wilderness.

[up] Sure, just a sec.

EDIT: Was wrong about it coming from an interview (I heard this stuff second-hand), but part of it comes from the trailer's official description. Still looking for the rest.

DOUBLEDIT: Actually it seems some of this isn't confirmed at all, and may be partially speculation. My bad...

It at least partially derives from an old leak that accurately predicted Mads Mikkelsen, Lindsey Wagner, and Troy Baker's involvement. The leak claims that the plot starts off with Sam working for the US Government and going on a mission to space, only for an accident to occur and leave him in the post-"Death Stranding" world with no memory of how he got there.

So I rewatched the trailers, and I'm pretty sure all that bizarre Kojima stuff in the third trailer is what the "voidout" that gets mentioned in the fourth looks like.

T-minus five minutes. Here's hoping for some deeper gameplay.

EDIT: And we are go.

EDIT 2: All in Japanese, which I don't speak, so details are gonna be scarce until someone translates.

  • Japanese dub of the TGA trailer.
  • Kojima has taken the stage... in costume, because he's great.
  • Some Shinkawa concept art of Sam.
  • Japanese VA for Sam. Guy looks like a Japanese Norman, somehow. Or is that just me...?
  • Akio Ohtsuka is on board! Looks like it's mainly announcing the Japanese cast. Disappointing, but maybe some surprises in store?
  • According to someone on reddit (not the best source) the VAs are hyping up a reveal at the end. Fingers crossed.
  • More Shinkawa art. Nice to have that, if nothing else!
  • Lea and Lindsay's VAs seem overwhelmed (in a good way!) evil grin.
  • New character! Dude with a weird suit and a black skull mask. Played by Tommie Earl Jenkins.
  • NEW CINEMATIC! Golden Skull Mask Guy fighting Sam! Boss fight? He summons some freaky tentacle smoke monster! Golden Mask Guy is played by Troy Baker!
  • Same clip with Japanese VA. Neat.
  • Looks like we're getting Shinkawa art of all the major characters. Mads just popped up. Now Guillermo.
  • According to reddit translators: Combat in many situations is optional. The boss fight with Troy's character('s monster) can be resolved by either fighting or stealthily escaping.

EDIT 3: Okay, getting exhausted. Going to bed. Probably going to miss the coolest part or something, but I can't keep my eyes open much longer... sad

Troy Baker mask guy is quite honestly the first thing about this game that I found interesting.

Damn Kojima, you really getting a ton of folks to build up your hype machine, aren't ya?

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.
