In an interview with IGN, Guillermo del Toro talked a bit about Death Stranding. The filmmaker expects Kojima to show him gameplay soon.
“In Death Stranding I’m just a puppet. I don’t know what he’s gonna make me do. He’s supposedly going to show me the gameplay at some point in the next couple of weeks.”
During last year’s Game Awards, a new trailer revealed Del Toro as a character in the game, carrying a baby in some kind of tube. Aside from lending his appearance to the character, del Toro will not be playing the role, as he doesn’t have the time for that, so he has no idea what his character is going to be doing in the game.
As for a public gameplay reveal, many are expecting the first gameplay footage to debut at either PlayStation Experience or The Game Awards 2017, both of which will take place early next month. Nothing has been confirmed so far though.
