An epic summary of eight minutes for the next game Death Stranding debuted during The Game Awards on Thursday night, and is one of the most daring and daring trailers that has ever adorned the world of video games.
The trailer draws attention from the beginning in second place, comes into play, with the voice of Norman Reedus on the beginning of life in the universe and the beginning of its end. Once the character of Reedus is removed from the black swamp of the earth (if that is, in fact, the Earth), everything falls apart and never finds the ground again.
Death Stranding is the latest project by director Hideo Kojima, known for creating the acclaimed Metal Gear series. The first two trailers of 2016 painted one of the most ambitious, confusing, cinematic and impressive games ever made.
The third trailer on Thursday night starts it up.
Per Reedus's monologue is an explosion similar to the big bang ending life as we know it, and it is tearing humanity apart in inexplicable ways. People are being snatched away by invisible beasts, consumed by sticky black substance, and thrown by the rising and falling tides.
Kojima is causing something huge, something so immense that it is not even completely comprehensible when the game is published on the date to be announced. Certainly not understandable in this eight-minute fragment.
In the middle of the landscape of Lovecraft, people are fighting for their lives and the life of a baby, confined in an artificial womb, that appeared in the two previous trailers. It seems to be the last light of hope for humanity in its seemingly insurmountable struggle against the supernatural threat of the end of the world.
Each scene returns the last head, pushing more and more towards the darkness, from the oceans elevating hundreds of feet in a single moment to a baby, in some way, lifting a thumb from inside the esophagus of the Reedus character.
The trailer, and probably the game, is intoxicating. Kojima is throwing reality and its rules out the window and offering something amazingly bizarre. But given his career, that ambition could be paid ten times.
