Slowly but surely news and information for Hideo Kojima‘s highly anticipated and enigmatic Death Stranding has released. The lastest is a trailer featuring a rather peculiar new character.
It features a character, simply known as the Heartman, who is a strange and peculiar man who dies every 21 minutes and needs to be resurrected again by a heart mounted defibrillator. Of course, as he explains, this makes life rather intresting as everything he does needs to be squeezed into 21-minute intervals.
The character of Heartman is played by Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn and forms part of the organisation in the game called Bridges. His main objective is to research the mysterious Death Stranding and find the truth behind it. It would seem that this continuous life and death cycle has something to do with his research.
As with many of the previous trailers for the game, this one leaves us yet again with so many questions. I guess we’ll have to wait for the game to release on the 8th of November 2019 if we want more answers.
