'Death Stranding' Latest News & Update: Hideo Kojima Premieres Latest Trailer At Game Awards 2016; Gore Stars Mads Mikkelsen, Norman Reedus Featured
Hideo Kojima showcased a new trailer for "Death Stranding" at The Game Awards 2016. This is our first glance at the game since its E3 2016 premiere.
Film director Guillermo Del Toro stars in the latest look of "Death Stranding." Del Toro has worked with Kojima on the canceled game "Silent Hills." The trailer gives a weird creepy atmosphere and featured an in-game style of what looked like Del Toro holding a baby in an incubation chamber while hiding from the military.
There was a point when the camera panned downward to reveal another baby drifting in a stream of water. It starts glowing red as the camera centers in on another glowing red figure at a distance. Soldiers appear with the oil-like black liquid coming from their eyes. The leader of the unit is revealed to be Mads Mikkelsen, star of "Hannibal," reports Gamespot.
Mikkelsen is one of Kojima's favorite actors. The "Hannibal" star was rumored to take part in the game. Mikkelsen's character can be perceived as the antagonist. He was shown to have unique abilities as he eradicates his helmet by dissolving it like it was burning. He also has tentacles like those of appendages that link to the soldiers adjacent him. These remove when he directs them out on a quest in the "Death Stranding."
The finale of the trailer discloses that Mikkelsen joins The "Walking Dead's" Norman Reedus as one of the stars of the game. The latest "Death Stranding" trailer settles earlier hearsay that Mikkelsen would be included in the game. As the credit was shown, it failed to mention Del Toro's inclusion in the trailer.
The "Death Stranding" video shown is from a PlayStation 4 Pro, according to host Geoff Keighley after the trailer. Kojima will be available at this weekend's PlayStation Experience show to talk more about "Death Stranding."
