Every gameplay trailer that’s come from Death Stranding has revealed something new and weird. So much that a lot of its details, big and small, may have passed over many peoples heads.
Here’s a rundown of some of the coolest and strangest things that Death Stranding lets you do.
Your PlayStation Controller Becomes a Baby
Maintaining a baby in real life can be a hard, grueling, but rewarding experience – so let’s do it in a video game!
For plot reasons, Death Stranding has you carrying a fetus across the harsh landscape. But it’s not just another simple delivery, this feeds into the gameplay.
You’re tasked with ensuring that this baby is nurtured and looked after, and this involves doing a variety of rather odd tasks.
Anytime the baby is distressed, you can ease it back to sleep and this is done by rocking the DualShock 4 controller back and forth.
How will you be alerted the baby is upset? Well, your controller will emit crying and other noises – duh!
It’s an interesting, if not slightly disturbing innovation that I’m sure many of us will be discussing for weeks to come post-release. It’s also worth noting that the limited edition Death Stranding console comes complete with a DualShock 4 controller in the same vein as the baby tank – gross!
