The official launch trailer for Death Stranding, one of the most anticipated games of the year, has officially been released on YouTube–and it’s nearly eight minutes long.
Clocking in at 7 minutes, 54 seconds, the cinematic trailer was edited by Hideo Kojima himself, as he announced on Twitter while counting down the minutes until the video’s official release. Fan reaction to the trailer has so far been overwhelmingly positive, with many viewers commenting on the presentation, as well as the questions left unanswered.

Developed by Kojima Productions, Death Stranding is a game many fans are waiting for with bated breath. Starring Normal Reedus (The Walking Dead), Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Léa Seydoux (Spectre), Death Stranding also features additional appearances by Academy Award winning director Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), comedian and television host Conan O’Brien, and games personality Geoff Keighly, creator of The Game Awards. Check out the brand new launch trailer for Death Stranding below.
Death Stranding follows the story of Sam Porter (Reedus), as he travels across a ravaged wasteland. Porter must save humanity from impending annihilation after mysterious explosions set off a series of supernatural events, and otherworldly creatures begin to plague the landscape.
“We are extremely excited and honored to be working with the supremely talented team at Kojima Productions and to bring Death Stranding to PC gamers around the world,” said 505 Games co-founder and CEO Raffi Galante. “Death Stranding will take gamers through a completely original experience that will delight PC gamers everywhere.”
Kojima Productions is a creative studio helmed by renowned game creator Hideo Kojima, perhaps best known for his creation of the Metal Gear franchise. The studio was established in December of 2015 under the banner of “From Sapiens to Ludens,” which signifies an evolution from “human beings” to “beings who play”.
