The highly anticipated Death Stranding 2 made a big splash at the State of Play event. Hideo Kojima’s game is a major release for the PS5 and fans have been eagerly awaiting news about the sequel. The final title, Death Stranding 2 On the Beach, was leaked a few days ago and has now been officially confirmed. The game is set to be released in 2025, as revealed in a nearly 10-minute trailer that focuses on the story.
The trailer sets the stage for a new adventure for Sam Porter Bridges, who is tasked with finishing the journey. The story begins on a ship with a “generous patron” and has a very different appearance from the first game, suggesting that it is a continuation of the events. Despite the new setting, Sam’s mission remains the same: to connect the world and save humanity from the brink of extinction.
The trailer features a mix of cinematics captured from the PlayStation 5 and gameplay footage, showcasing familiar mechanics from the first game. Sam once again faces mysterious entities that he can only detect with his sophisticated backpack, as well as monsters that emerge from the depths. The trailer also introduces a new civil organization called Drawbridge, signaling a shift in the world of Death Stranding.
One of the most surprising moments in the trailer is the return of Higgs, who has somehow survived and reached the beach. Sam will traverse new environments with different ecosystems, encountering new challenges along the way. The trailer also offers glimpses of a sinister doll and the character of Elle Fanning, hinting at the depth and complexity of the story to come.
Overall, Death Stranding 2 On the Beach promises to deliver an immersive and thrilling experience for players, with a rich and engaging story that builds on the success of the first game. Fans can look forward to an epic journey that will test Sam Porter Bridges in new and unexpected ways, as he races against time to save humanity from the looming threat of extinction. With its stunning visuals and innovative gameplay, Death Stranding 2 is shaping up to be a must-play title for PS5 owners and fans of the original game alike.
