Hideo Kojima, the famed creator of the Metal Gear series, returns from a brief hiatus after his highly publicized exit from Konami with his strangest concept yet: Death Stranding, a game that’s all about connections, according to the developer. Kojima’s goal is to create a game where players interact with each other beyond just trying to kill each other. 

The game stars Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen. It also features some collaboration with beloved director Guillermo del Toro, who previously worked with Kojima on the ill-fated Silent Hills project.

Here’s everything else we know:

Death Stranding Poster

Kojima tweeted this promotional image for Death Stranding around the time of E3 2017. The image’s use of the word “Bridges” is particularly interesting because, as IGN points out, that word was also seen in the game’s second trailer.
