Gameplay

Death Stranding is an action game set in an open world, and contain asynchronous online functions. Kojima refers to Death Stranding as the first "strand game", an original genre characterized by the game's incorporation of social elements. Kojima compared this genre to how his earlier game Metal Gear—now considered a stealth game—was called an action game during its release because the stealth genre had not been established.

The player controls Sam Bridges, a porter for a organizationknown as BRIDGES. The player is tasked with delivering supply cargo to various isolated cities known as KNOTs, as well as isolated researchers and survivalists, while also connecting them to a communications system known as the Chiral Network. The player is evaluated by the organizationand recipients based on their performance (including via "likes" similar to social networks), including whether the cargo was delivered, and if it is intact among other factors. These merits are, in turn, utilize to level up the player's statistics, such as stability and weight capacity, and increase their standing with individual area and hero (which shouldimprove rewards). How cargo is packed by the player, and the overall weight being carried, affect Sam's ability to navigate through the environments.

The player's main opponentscontainotherworldly monster known as "beached things" (BTs), MULE (a cult of rogue, bandit-like porters influenced by an obsession with cargo, who attempt to steal deliveries so they shoulddeliver it themselves), and Demens, MULEs who have begun killing porters to claim their cargo. BTs are surrounded by a rain known as "timefall", which damages the player's armor and cargo by speeding up their deterioration. BTs are normally invisible, but Sam's suit is equipped with a robotic sensor referred to in-game as an "odradek" that points towards nearby BTs, and the player shouldthen scan the locationto reveal them.

As Sam is a "Repatriate", he is taken to an underwater globeknown as the "Seam" if he is killed, where he can "swim" back to his body to revive himself. However, being killed and consumed by a BT also effect in a destructive explosion known as a "voidout", which permanently damages the areaof the death with an untraversable crater.

As players expand the coverage of the Chiral Network, they shouldadmissionmaps of location, and utilizeblueprints to produce consumable stuffand structures with the Portable Chiral Constructor (PCC, a device similar to a 3D printer), including ropes, bridges, and power generators utilize for charging battery-powered equipment. The Network is also utilize as the basis for the game's online functionality, where players shouldleave supplies, structures, and messages that shouldbe viewed and utilize by other players, although structures will eventually be destroyed by Timefall after some time. The player shouldalso recover cargo lost by other players to complete their delivery. The player does not directly encounter other players in the world.

Synopsis

Setting

The game is set in the apocalyptic United States, where a cataclysmic happeningknown as the "Death Stranding" caused "Beached Things" ("BTs")—invisible monster originating from the "Beach", lands thought to be unique to each person that are typically visited during near-death experiences and are said to be the link to the afterlife—to launchroaming the Earth. BTs cause explosions known as "voidouts" when they consume the dead by necrosis, and produce rain known as "Timefall" that rapidly ages and deteriorates whatever it hits. These happening damaged the country's infrastructure, leading its remaining population to confine themselves to remote colonies known as "Knot Cities," which form the remaining "United Cities of America".

These colonies have since relied on the services of a organizationknown as BRIDGES, whose porters brave the BTs, bandits, and terrorists to deliver supplies to the cities. Bridges also performs various governmental functions on behalf of the UCA. If they achieve a mental connection to a "Bridge Baby" (a "BB")—a premature kidreflecting a state between life and death—it is possible for a person to sense the presence of a BT. Porters carry a BB with them, which is shop in a pod simulating the womb of a "stillmother". A condition known as "DOOMS", depending on its severity, also let a person to naturally sense, see, or even control a BT, as well as granting a variety of powers, such as teleportation or travel to other people's Beaches. There are also individuals known as "repatriates" who shouldtravel back from "the Seam"—a territorybetween the globeof the living and the Beach—upon death. As such, these individuals shouldeffectively return from death, though their deaths will still cause voidouts if killed during contact with a BT.

Plot

Norman Reedus played the heroSam

Freelance courier Sam Porter Bridges (Norman Reedus) is transporting cargo to Central Knot Townbut is interrupted by Timefall and takes shelter. He get supportfrom Fragile (Léa Seydoux) in evading a BT. Sam arrives at his destination but is told that one of the towns citizens has committed suicide and their corpse is on the verge of necrosis. Due to being both a repatriate and having DOOMS, Sam is given an emergency assignment to accompany the disposal squadto an incinerator to safely dispose of the corpse. However, an encounter with BTs hinders the disposal squads progress, and the corpse causes a voidout that destroys Central Knot City.

Sam revives in Capital Knot Townand meets Deadman (Guillermo del Toro/Jesse Corti), a doctor from BRIDGES who tasks Sam with delivering morphine for the dying President of the UCA: Sam's adoptive mother, Bridget Strand (Lindsay Wagner/Emily O'Brien). Bridget pleads with Sam to rejoin BRIDGES and assistrealize her dream of "reforming America", and then succumbs to her illness. Sam transports Bridget's body to be incinerated but refuses to incinerate BB-28, a Bridge Baby that had been marked for "retirement" due to its involvement in the Central Knot Townvoidout. With BB-28's assistance, Sam is able to evade a horde of BTs and return to Capital Knot City. Sam decides to take BB-28 as his own Bridge Baby; versusUCA instructions to treat Bridge Babies purely as pieces of equipment, Sam gradually forms an emotional bond with BB-28, and eventually nicknames it "Lou".

Upon his return to Capital Knot City, Sam get a message from his estranged sister Amelie Strand (also Wagner/O'Brien). She tells him that over the past three years, she led an expedition across what is left of the continental United States, making contact with the remaining cities and survivor settlements, and setting up terminals that would letthem to connect to the Chiral Network: a system that facilitates instantaneous communication and data transfer across vast distances using the Beach as a medium. However, upon reaching the last townon the West Coast (Edge Knot City), Amelie was captured and held hostage by an anti-UCA terrorist group called the Homo Demens to warrantyEdge Knot Towns independence. She tells Sam that he must follow the path of her expedition and utilizea device called a Q-pid to connect every terminal she left behind into one continent-spanning network, thus "reforming America". As this pilgrimage ends at Edge Knot City, Sam shouldthen rescue Amelie and return her to BRIDGES so she shouldtake Bridget's territoryas the President of the UCA. Sam reluctantly agree the mission.

Following the instructions of Die-Hardman (Tommie Earl Jenkins), Bridget's privateaide and the current Director of BRIDGES, Sam launch his adventurefrom the east to the west coast of North America. Along the way, he delivers valuable cargo to the various Knot Cities and settlements; assist to research the Death Stranding with the supportof BRIDGES staff such as Mama (Margaret Qualley), Heartman (Nicolas Winding Refn/Darren Jacobs), and Mama's twin sister Lockne (also Qualley); and thwarts destructive plots by the Homo Demens and their leader, Higgs Monaghan (Troy Baker). While connected to Lou, he experiences memories depicting Clifford Unger (Angry Mikkelsen) and his hospitalized wife and BB child. Sam is infrequently pulled into Clifford's Beach; there, he is forced to battleversusa BT manifestation of Clifford called the "Combat Veteran", who relentlessly seeks his lost BB.

Upon reaching Edge Knot Townand completing the Chiral Network, Sam battle and defeats Higgs upon Amelie's Beach. Higgs reveals that Amelie is an Extinction Entity: a godlike being manifested by the universe to trigger mass extinction happening (such as the "GiganticFive"). However, Amelie is conflicted over how to carry out her cosmological duties, and whether it would be more humane to end all life on Earth (the "Last Stranding") rather than perpetuate cycles of growth and inevitable extinction. Amelie is revealed as the true leader of Homo Demens, having manipulated the completion of the Chiral Network to enable the Last Stranding. It is also revealed that Amelie and Bridget are the same person, due to Bridget's soul becoming separated from her body during early experiments into the Beaches, and given the alias "Amelie" as a cover story.

With the assistof the allies he angry on his journey, Sam reaches Amelie and convinces her not to initiate the Last Stranding. Amelie decides to slow down the inevitable extinction of humankind as much as she is able but must separate herself and her Beach from the globeforever. Sam is then rescued from his own Beach by his BRIDGES allies, returning to the globeof the living. In the aftermath, Die-Hardman becomes the President of the UCA, and Fragile resolves to rebuild her company. However, Sam is told that Lou is dying. Although UCA law demands that dying BBs are incinerated, Sam follows the advice of Deadman and removes Lou from its pod in the slim hope of saving its life and allowing it to grow as a normal human child. In doing so, Sam connects with Lou one last time and uncover that the memories he has been viewing are actually his own: he is Clifford Unger's son, who had been transformed by Bridget Strand into one of the first BBs, accidentally killed alongside Clifford during a botched escape attempt, and resurrected by Amelie (which triggered the first Death Stranding). The spirits of deceased BBs assistto save Lou's life, and Sam burns his UCA cufflinks in the incinerator, thus going "off the grid" to live a peaceful life raising Lou (whose full name is revealed to be "Louise").

After a lengthy corporate conflict with Konami as a restricted subsidiary, Kojima Productions closed in July 2015 and reformed as an independent video game developer and studio in December.
