Death Stranding Will Need Global Player Cooperation Says Mads Mikkelsen

Death Stranding actor Mads Mikkelsen has confirmed that Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima's new sci-fi game that continues to baffle at every turn, will require collaboration from players around the world.

While doing the press circuit for his newest movie Arctic, Total Film sat the Rogue One actor down and asked him a little bit about the experience of mocapping a performance and working with Hideo Kojima. After expressing how in awe, and confusion, Mikkelsen was of the project, he let slip a detail about the game.

"The whole concept of playing the game, as I understand," Mikkelsen told Total Film, "needs collaboration from different people from different parts of the world, which is also another level of fantastic-ness."

The game was last shown in a trailer airing at last year's The Game Awards in December and again the following weekend at PSX. It was named as one of the four games Sony is planning to heavily focus on at their E3 press conference this year, which will take place on Monday June 12 at 6:00 PM PT.

Our Take
It sounds like this is a little more similar to something like Dark Souls messaging, or a realization of what Kojima wanted from P.T., than anything like A Way Out or some sort of forced multiplayer segment.
