More Evidence Suggests Death Stranding Will Be Shown at The Game Awards

Geoff Keighley has been shoveling coal into The Game Awards hype train over the past few days, teasing 12 to 14 "world premieres" (the show's fancy name for new trailers). Since Reedus is the third one from the "Death Stranding" team confirmed to be appearing at The Game Awards 2017, fans couldn't help but speculate that the gameplay trailer for the mysterious game could be launched at the event.

We're excited to share that The Game Awards 2017 will include a special performance by the French band Phoenix, along with appearances by Hideo Kojima, Norman Reedus, Aisha Tyler, Guillermo del Toro, Felicia Day, Andy Serkis, Justin Roiland and Zachary Levi, along with our surprise guests to be announced.

Fans have been waiting to see substantial new Death Stranding footage since last year's Game Awards, so this Thursday's show marks the flawless time to finally unveil more on the game.

On Monday, The Game Awards organizers announced via Twitter that the "Walking Dead" actor is going to come to Thursday night's live show as a presenter.

Back in November, Del Toro said, in an interview with IGN: "In Death Stranding I'm just a puppet".

This of course prompts a big question: will we be learning any more about Kojima Productions' Death Stranding?

Details so far have been scarce, though the ex-Konami legend did make story comparisons to The Great Escape, and we do know that the Death Stranding game engine is the same hardware-pushing engine used in Horizon Zero Dawn.

Death Stranding is in development for PS4. The Game Awards 2017 starts on Thursday, December 7 at 8:30PM EST / 5:30 PM PST. "You have a lot of freedom of choice to do what you want to do and you can get in vehicles and so on".
