Death Stranding is an open-world action-adventure game developed by Kojima Productions and published by Sony. As per the official blurb, the game’s protagonist Sam Bridges (motion-capped and voiced by Norman Reedus) must brave a world transformed by a phenomenon called Death Stranding and reunite civilization one step at a time.

Integrated with its mind-boggling storyline campaign, Death Stranding offers an asynchronous multiplayer functionality that involves players assisting each other (such as sending supplies or sharing safehouses) without ever actually crossing paths.
