Its not the same world we lived in, in this world you will be connected, connected to Death Stranding.
Hideo Kojima described the whole of Death Stranding into four lines,
“To see a world in a grain of sand.
And a heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in a palm of your hand.
And eternity in an hour.”
The first auteur of videogames, the man who revolutionizes the concept of stealth mode action games, and took the video game world to a whole new level.
Hideo Kojima is back again with another master-piece of his type named as “Death Stranding”.
It’s almost been three decades, since the series of Metal Gear has revolutionized the whole gaming world, and still it is continuing to do so.
But this time table has turned, as this time all the speculations of the public will go away as the new concept of Death Stranding will surely turn your world upside down.
Death Stranding Plot and Concept
Trying to decode the concept of Death Stranding was like solving the Da Vinci Code, as Kojima won’t let people easily know the total plot of the game.
So, what we can do is, we need to guess to its proximity, what could be the plot of the game.
As any of the final confirmation is not yet public about the game but by looking at the snippets available we can surely draw some conclusions about it.
Kojima seems interested in solving the jigsaw puzzle, as the whole concept of the game seems to be based upon the connectivity and some kind of links.
The initials showed that, the scattered wet world which still has corpses of the living beings.
But the common thing which I noticed was the umbilical cord which was present in each of the corpses of crabs, whales and other creatures.
Wait a moment! Did I just say umbilical cord? And that too connected to non-mammals?
Well yes! I did, as clearly, we can make out this is not a normal world to live in, as no other creature possesses umbilical cord.
It was also quite interesting to see that along with the non- mammalian creatures, the letters of the title were also having the cords connected.
So, I think by this they are trying to show a kind of connectivity like a mother is has with her child, as a mother is giving a part of herself through that cord and nourishes the child.
The lead character of this game, Norman Reedus, was showed lying on the shore with handcuffs on his left hand, with some different kind of dog tags around his neck.
Norman was portrayed naked lying on the shore along with a baby who was also connected by a cord with Norman.
But at another instance when he wakes up, the cord and the baby both are gone and there are hand prints of baby all over his body, as if the baby was never there.
It’s quite strange to see that, normally when we walk, our footprints get embraced, but in this plot of Death Stranding, there are handprints embraced when you walk.
It was quite interesting to see that the lead character of the game was free from any kind of connectivity, and he was the only being on the ground with no external umbilical cord connected.
And even he didn’t have belly button, his abdomen was also showed of having a large crossed shaped scar, as if some kind of operation or surgery has been done to remove it.
And he is being freed or abandoned from the connectivity that everyone shares.
So, in a nutshell, we can easily say that this thing surely shows a kind of connectivity which is not yet revealed.
The dog tags weren’t imprinted with the names of the soldiers rather there were some kind of equations embraced on it.
The first equations is Schwarzschild’s radius which has something to do with the black hole, according to this theory we can find out the radius of an object at which it can be turned into a black hole.
The second dog tag showed the Dirac equation, it describes the electron and quarks in the contest of quantum mechanics, which directly lead to the discovery of antimatter.
Now, the question is, what these two equations have to do with Death Stranding?
Well it’s still a suspense that is still unknown to all of us, until we play the game.
Death Stranding Development
The latest release of the Kojima Productions is an upcoming open world action videogame and it is being published by Sony Interactive Entertainments for play station 4.
The title of the game is being taken from cetacean stranding phenomena. According to this phenomenon, in which the beach whales die due to dehydration.
In this phenomenon, the subsidisation of whales also occur under their own weight and they also drown when the high tide covers the blowhole.

He also described the category as quasi- action game, but with all new levels and elements.
