In a recent interview that another publication site struck up with President of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) America, Shawn Layden, some interesting bits of information came out regarding progress of Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding. Although there is very little information on the game at the moment, the interview brings out that there is an actual playable build of Death Stranding.
Recently President of Sony Interactive Entertainment America, Shawn Layden, took up an interview with publication site The Telegraph and noted some interesting things about Hideo Kojima’s upcoming game Death Stranding. The publications site covered quite a bit of things regarding this year’s E3 and the games present and absent at the event, including Death Stranding.
The site asked Layden about the current progress of Death Stranding and how the game is coming along during this very moment. Layden revealed that the game is progressing nicely and is actually playable. How much is playable you may ask? Well, that is uncertain at the moment given that Layden did not say how much is playable as of June, 2017, which to my guess the game is likely a ways off from being officially complete.
In addition to the above, we do know that the game is out of its concept stage and Layden, himself, noted that he actually played the game and said that…
“It’s as revolutionary a experience as Kojima has been promising.”
Furthermore, the interview also touched on how the game progressed so quickly in which Layden replied that it was due to Kojima and his team working with the Decima Engine from Guerrilla Games. If you don’t know, the Decima Engine is used to power Horizon: Zero Dawn, and is currently in use to power Death Stranding. According to the publication site we learn that prototype levels are set up and are playable too.
So what does the above all mean? It means that the game is coming together nicely, except it will still take time before it ships out whole for the public to consume. As of now Death Stranding is in development for PS4.
