Death Stranding, the mysterious and intriguing game from the mind of Hideo Kojima, has had its cover art revealed during San Diego Comic Con.
The basic version of the game’s box art features Norman Reedus’ character, Sam Bridges, out in the rain. You can check it out below in a tweet from PlayStation Europe.

The steelbook version looks a little fancier – it features a similar pose, but also has Sam Bridges covered in what appears to be the mysterious black goo that we saw Cliff (Mads Mikkelsen’s character) emerge from a few trailers ago. You can check it out below in a tweet from PlayStation.

Along with the cover art, Kojima also revealed that while he was recommended Keanu Reeves as a guest star in the game, he ‘wanted’ Mads Mikkelsen instead. Awww. (Thanks to kalai_chik on Twitter!)
