The PS5 version of Kojima Productions’ game was announced during Summer Games Fest Kickoff Live on June 10.
While the ESRB’s classification doesn’t reveal any new information about the product, it suggests more news about the game is coming in the near future.
It features a cast of high-profile actors including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner and director Guillermo del Toro.
Kojima has described Death Stranding as “a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society”.
VGC’s Death Stranding review scored the game 3/5 and labelled it “a bloated, showy post-apocalyptic melodrama that makes a meal of some engrossing mechanics and themes.”
In a video interview released to coincide with the announcement of Death Stranding Director’s Cut, Kojima said his design philosophy had been significantly impacted by recent world events.
