Death Stranding Has A Nightmare Setting Like Silent Hills, As Illustrated by a Journalist At PAX Australia

Death Stranding is one of the biggest bets of this 2019. The hype in the players becomes more and more uncontrollable and, the aura of mystery that surrounds the title, is gradually thinning and more and more details seem to finally come to light.

On the occasion of PAX Australia, someone had the chance to try Death Stranding defining its setting “like a real nightmare.”

The journalist of Sausage Roll Erina Rosea described her gaming experience by cataloging it as disturbing. “Death Stranding’s environment is one of the scariest and immersive I’ve ever experienced in a videogame. Although the world may seem barren and void of life, it never feels like you are truly alone… and it is terrifying. You don’t know what will pop out from where and it feels like there is this larger than life presence constantly watching you through the friggen’ clouds! It feels like Hideo Kojima took the Silent Hills vibe and injected it with steroids,” the journalist said.

According to Rose, Death Stranding is “a massive open world with wide open spaces and you are completely exposed. As night falls you begin to hear creepy sounds but you have no idea what they are. You try to look around for signs of danger but a thick mist slowly begins to suffocate your site. The sound gets louder and you strain your eyes to see if you can see something and, lo and behold, there seems to be something floating in the mist, and towards you, I might add. I don’t know what this is, I don’t know what to do, I just freak out and toss the controller over to my friend. That’s my experience in a nutshell.”

Death Stranding will release exclusively on PS4 on November 8. In recent news, the review embargo date of the game was also confirmed.
