Death Stranding: Geoff Keighley Says “We Aren’t Ready for It’s Online Components”

The journalist and presenter Geoff Keighley believes that we are not prepared for the multiplayer components of Death Stranding.

We discovered some of the mysteries of Death Stranding during the Opening Night Live of the Gamescom 2019 thanks to various trailers in which the character played by Geoff Keighley as a cameo was also discovered. In an interview with IGN, he admits that “we are not prepared for the multiplayer mode” of Kojima’s new work. Let’s see his statements below.

“What I will say I think about the game is that what he’s doing with the online aspects of it, I think people aren’t quite fully ready for what he’s sort of doing. And if you remember, even in Opening Night Live, we talked a lot about how people like, you know, everyone can like pee on the mushroom, and it’ll grow bigger,” Keighley mentions in relation to one of the most unexpected aspects of the trailer.

“I mean, it’s silly and funny, but you got to take that concept and think about how that applies to everything you do in the game, and this sort of connected world and connecting people. People are like, oh, that’s so silly, crazy Kojima. But think about that, how that applies to everything you’re doing in Death Stranding. Yeah, and what’s going to happen? And again, I think he’s building something that is, it’s not just a single-player game is sort of these online components,” Keighley argued.

In addition to contributing his own vision of the playable details that we could see in the gameplay shown, Geoff also ensures that eventually Kojima will talk about more about the concept of the online mode he has created for Death Stranding. He also adds that even he (who already knows more than most) understands exactly everything about the title of the Japanese creative. Therefore, it only remains to wait until the game’s launch to understand.

Death Stranding will release exclusively on PlayStation 4 on November 8.
