Hideo Kojima adds private room with more encouragement for non-gamers to try his upcoming game
Hideo Kojima has not only stacked Death Stranding with every friend he can possibly make room for; he's also going to extra lengths to make sure all their fans can enjoy the upcoming game. His latest announcement is of special interest to fans of game stars Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen.
Kojima announced that there would be a "private room" in Death Stranding (as in other games) where the player—i.e., Sam—can rest. But he's also worked in a few "gimmicks" (his own word) for gamers who might be playing specifically for Reedus and/or Mikkelsen's presence:
The private room in DS is the place to rest for the player(Sam) but also I prepared some gimmicks for Norman & Mads fan to enjoy. For those who aren’t gamer, pls have courage to get hands on with Very Easy Mode. pic.twitter.com/jOuQkYhl4B— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) September 14, 2019
These early shots will be extra exciting for fans of The Walking Dead and Hannibal, who are among the many Kojima is specifically hoping to forge connections with when Death Stranding goes live. The games designer and friend to all the world's coolest people recently announced a "Very Easy" mode (along with harder modes for experienced gamers), encouraging fans of the game's cast to give it a try regardless of skill level.
Death Stranding comes out November 8.
