Mads Mikkelsen: Death Stranding Will Require Global Collaboration Between Players
Death Stranding is still a mystery for players; however, very soon we will know more about its mechanics and story, as the title will be part of the Sony conference at E3 2018.
Mads Mikkelsen, an actor who works on Hideo Kojima’s project, came forward a bit and shared some details about Death Stranding. Kojima said earlier that his game is not based on competition, it seeks to create connections between players.
Mikkelsen emphasized this idea during a meeting with GamesRadar. According to the actor, the Death Stranding experience will require global collaboration among players.
“The concept is so mind-blowing, because it’s not like, you know, “kill everybody and win the game”, it’s a connecting thing. It’s like the opposite. And, you know, it’s so ahead of its time. And there’s elements of social media in it, and the idea is that, you know, you have so many games, and so many parts of millennial culture I guess, is being alone in a room. And you lose physical contact with people. This is after that and the re-establishing of that physical contact,” said Mikkelsen.
The actor also highlighted the surreal factor that prevails in the script of the game. From his perspective, the story can be quite complex. In addition, he commented that the movement capture sessions are on track. “He (Kojima) tries to explain it again and again and again, and I thought I had it, but then this happens and I’ve lost it again. It’s too complicated. It’s too crazy. It’s too beautiful. It felt a bit like being in drama school,” Mikkelsen added.
Although the actor gives some clues about the mechanics of Death Stranding game, it is still difficult to see what Kojima is preparing for this new project. The good news is that the developer is already working on a new trailer for E3 2018 and recently shared a mysterious image.
Death Stranding is in development for PlayStation 4 and for now it does not have a launch window.
