The trailer features highlights such as Mads Mikkelsen’s character Cliff gently singing a lullaby, a very futuristic looking motorbike, an ominous storm, gameplay footage, some intense violin music, and much much more. Trust us on this one – you need to watch it to fully experience what’s going on here.
Death Stranding appears to be an open-world action game. The PlayStation Store pre-order screen describes it as follows:
Sam Bridges must brave a world transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the remnants of our future in his hands, he embarks on a journey to reunite the shattered world.
The game features an all-star cast including Norman Reedus, Margaret Qualley, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Nicolas Winding Refn, Troy Baker, Guillermo del Toro, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Emily O’Brien.
DEATH STRANDING will release on Nov 8th 2019. There will be a Standard Edition (disc or download), a Special Edition, a Digital Deluxe Edition, and a Collector's Edition. Preorders start today. https://t.co/kzWprq4ILo

I had the opportunity to speak to Mads Mikkelsen in-person about his experiences with Kojima last year, and he said that he had a ‘lot of fun’ with the mo-cap headgear.
