Death Stranding is a bit of a confusing mess and, honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love the speculation that Kojima creates. The last few trailers have at the very least let us in on some of the establishments in Death Stranding. We know that players will be delivering items across the expansive world, while having to fend off other-worldly creatures. It’s probably not going to be the easiest game to play on earth, but new gamers should not be concerned.
Hideo Kojima confirmed on Twitter that a ‘very easy’ mode will be included in the game. It’s been included for ‘movie fans’ who aren’t really gamers, but would love to see their favourite actors in the game. Considering that this is a Kojima game, it’s very likely that we’ll have hours and hours of cutscenes in the game that’ll play out like a movie for those who just want to experience the story.
Normally there’s only Easy Mode, but we added Very Easy Mode for movie fans since we have real actors like Norman, Mads, Lea starred in. Even Yano-san who never completed the 1st stage of PAC-MAN, was able to complete the game on Very Easy Mode 👍🌈🦀😅 https://t.co/fMZmuZltZw— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) September 6, 2019
Fear not, the game will still be a challenge for those who would like a traditional gaming experience.
Death Stranding launches exclusively for PS4 on 8 November.
