Actor Norman Reedus has given some new details about Hideo Kojima's upcoming project Death Stranding. Reedus said that Death Stranding is a game that will bring everyone together as it's positive, scary and depressing at the same time.

Ever since the reveal back at E3 2016, Hideo Kojima's new game Death Stranding has been a subject of many predictions and speculations. To this day, players are yet to figure out what the game is actually about as every released trailer just wraps Death Stranding in more mystery.

The man who is set to play the lead role in the game, Norman Reedus, shed some light on Kojima's highly anticipated project. In an interview with Metro GameCentral, Reedus said that Death Stranding is "a crazy, complicated game" set "so far out into the future".

He added that instead of eliminating everyone around you, "it's bringing everyone together". He described it as a very positive game but crazy and depressing at the same time.

Reedus also said that Death Stranding is "kind of a new movie" and that he never saw anything like what they're doing.

While it's hard to conclude anything from Reedus' interview except that Death Stranding is different and crazy, it looks like Kojima is aiming for some sort of interactive experience.

Mads Mikkelsen earlier said that the whole concept of the game requires collaboration from people all around the world.

Reedus also talked about his relationship with Hideo Kojima. He described him as "genius" and mentioned a particular moment that happened during the Video Game Music Awards. 

"I saw that video game director at the Video Game Music Awards, walk down the steps and they lit up underneath his feet like Michael Jackson and he goes, "I'm back." And the place is like, "Oh my god." Like grown men in tears," Reedus said. 

Apparently, that was the moment he decided to work with Kojima. "I was like who is this god – whatever he wants to do I’ll do it. He’s a genius," actor concluded.

All in all, Death Stranding certainly doesn't sound like anything we've ever played before, It looks like a mysterious, interactive and different experience but did you expect anything less from Hideo Kojima?

Thanks, Metro GameCentral.
