You know a game truly is an enigma when it’s using Rick and Morty as a promotional tool. An advert featuring the two iconic protagonists just dropped over on Adult Swim’s Facebook page, in which the pair are seen wandering through the same eerie, barren plains of Death Stranding as they try to work out what the hell is going on.
It’s the perfect storm of the amusing and the bizarre as Rick wonders whether they should eat BB, which Morty is nursing as wears the same sci-fi suit as Sam Porter Bridges.
You can check out the trailer for yourself below.
Death Stranding doesn’t release for another week on Nov. 8, but the review embargo is already up. So far, the critical reception has been wildly divisive, with scores ranging from mediocre to exemplary. Stand by for Twinfinite’s own review in the coming days.
