Death Stranding, the cryptic and mysterious PlayStation 4 game from Hideo Kojima, has finally reached an important phase in the game’s development.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about Death Stranding, such as when it’s due out, what it’s actually about, and whether it’s just a front for Kojima to hang out with renowned actor Mads Mikkelsen.

However, a Tweet from Kojima confirmed that the game is at least currently playable on the PlayStation 4.

The Tweet, roughly translated from Japanese and written in an easier-to-follow format thanks to a mixture of Google Translate and educated guessing, says something along the following lines:

Death Stranding is not yet in the debugging stage, but is currently having all the game elements and tools from different development systems combined into the game. It’s a process that involves connecting the parts, adding feeling, looking over the production, the specifications, looking out for trouble, taking things out and adding things in. I’m playing the game on PlayStation 4 every day. It’s a critical phase.

Attached to the Tweet was a picture of a miniature model of Kojima stood next to a DualShock controller.

Given that the game currently has no set release date, it’s not clear whether Death Stranding will be one of the last releases for the PlayStation 4 console or whether it will be released solely on a future Sony console.

There’s a chance that more Death Stranding information will be released during PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast tomorrow on March 25th at 2PM PT/5PM ET. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
