Death Stranding Will Have A Very Easy Mode, Kojima Confirms

I'm ready to confess I always choose the easy setting for games I play. It's just I'd rather enjoy the gameplay with minimal challenges as opposed to replaying shootouts, tough boss fights and difficult sections of a map. Thankfully, your quirky uncle Hideo Kojima, has revealed Death Stranding will have a 'very easy' mode so even non-gamers can enjoy his weird craft.

Kojima announced the news in a Twitter reply so in addition to having a regular easy mode, there will also be a very easy mode.

He cheekily explained the mode was for movie fans, rather than regular gamers, because it contained well-known actors like The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen and Léa Seydoux.

If you like to suffer a little more when you game, there will also be a Normal, Hard and 'BOSS' mode. But by looking at the gameplay footage that's been released for the past few years, you'd have to be a true masochist to enjoy a Hideo Kojima boss fight in the alleged 'BOSS' mode.

What Death Stranding is actually about, true to Kojima's brand, is still a mystery. In a PlayStation blog, he revealed a little bit more about what players can expect.

"The goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society," Kojima cryptically said. "As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or 'Strands' with other players around the globe."

Death Stranding's narrative and gameplay will hopefully untangle when it's released on November 8.

I Don't Need To Play Death Stranding Because I Already Love It

I don’t even have to play Death Stranding in order to review it. All I need is the 39 minutes’ worth of trailers released thus far, my hideous enthusiasm, and my terrible imagination. Allow me to utilise all three in this video presentation, a “pre-review” of Death Stranding.

    "The goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society," Kojima cryptically said. "As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or 'Strands' with other players around the globe."This is the bit that I'm wondering about. The last teaser for the game said as much but it never explained "how" Sam is doing it. The teaser mentioned covering the world in cable, possibly a reference to the internet, but it will be interesting to see how it works here.

    There's also references to micro blackholes, time travel (or at least aceleration) alternate universes/reailities so it's possible that a Porter's job is to reconnect the pieces of a reality shattered by the invisible beings who (seemingly) cause micro black holes when they touch someone in this reality.

    I don't have as much free time as I used to so I play lots of games on easy difficulty so I can actually finish them.
