Death Stranding is a new Playstation 4 exclusive set to release November 8th. It comes from the creators of the Metal Gear series, Kojima Productions, a development house spearheaded by Hideo Kojima. There has been a wide range of trailers with limited info about the game so far. Death Stranding does star the likes of Norman Reedus, famously from the Walking Dead, Mads Mikkelsen, from the MCU’s Doctor Strange, Lea Seydoux and Guillermo del Toro.
The most bizarre news about the release of the game, is what comes with the collector’s edition. With a copy of the game in a limited edition steelbook case, DLC, a keychain and a BB pod with a life-sized baby model. That’s right, a life size baby. All of this material is placed in a BRIDGES cargo case. Fans don’t know what significance the baby pod could take place in the game, but it has to mean something, right?
With limited info we have, there are shots of Reedus’ character traveling through treacherous conditions, and players will be taking control of Sam Porter Bridges, who can be seen in the trailers moving these baby pods throughtout the trailers.
The baby pod collectors edition can be preordered now for $199.
