So Much Is Happening in DEATH STRANDING 2’s Trailer


The world of Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding has seen a lot of activity these last few months. The first game premiered on PlayStation 4 in 2019. We recently learned a live-action movie adaptation from A24 and Kojima Productions is in the works. And, perhaps most importantly, a sequel to the game is on the horizon. Kojima announced it at The Game Awards in 2022. In its first State of Play for 2024, Sony revealed a new Death Stranding 2 trailer full of gameplay and story hints. We also learned the game’s full title, Death Stranding 2: On the Beach.

A number of wild and weird things happen in the trailer. It shows off new locations, the return of the villainous Higgs, and a talking puppet thing? The nine minutes of footage don’t make a ton of sense, but that’s on par for Death Stranding. It’s an odd world, true, but it’s a world many fans are anxious to return to.

Death Stranding 2‘s premise is as follows:

Embark on an inspiring mission of human connection beyond the UCA. Sam—with companions by his side—sets out on a new journey to save humanity from extinction. Join them as they traverse a world beset by otherworldly enemies, obstacles and a haunting question: should we have connected?

The game sees Norman Reedus, Léa Seydoux, and Troy Baker return to Hideo Kojima’s universe. They will be joined by Elle Fanning, Shioli Kutsuna, and Academy Award-winning film director George Miller.

Death Stranding 2: On the Beach will arrive in 2025 on the PlayStation 5.
