Legendary Japanese video game designer Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions recently offered a new look on his upcoming PlayStation-exclusive open-world action game ‘Death Stranding’.

The Metal Gear Solid series creator recently announced that the much-awaited game would release on Nov. 8, 2019.

Alongside the trailer and release date announcement, Kojima released a statement about Death Stranding via Twitter and the Playstation Blog:

People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation.

“Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.

Aside from its in-game experience, what sets the game apart is the star-studded cast featured in the game. Big names include Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus, James Bond actors Lea Seydoux and Madds Mikkelsen, and The Leftovers actress Margaret Qualley.

Death Stranding releases on November 8, 2019 exclusively on PlayStation 4.
