, we finally have a new Death Stranding 2 trailer featuring a host of story details. We also have a subtitle, On the Beach, and a release window: 2025.


As part of the first State of Play of 2024, Kojima Productions debuted a brand-new trailer for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach. Norman Reedus appears in the trailer, where we get a glimpse at this armory as he gets a tour of a ship.

His character, Sam Bridges, is working for a civilian outfit called Drawbridge who has a "generous patron." Sam is once again setting out to unite the world and bringing new areas into the network, and he's carrying a strange little puppet who hangs at his side (and seems to move at a lower frame-rate than the rest of the game.

The trailer features numerous environments, suggesting that it will be considerably more ambitious than the previous game.


"You helped bring America together, helped it become the UCA, but I'm afraid the Death Stranding is far from over. Humanity is still on danger, still on the brink of extinction," the narrator says.

As part of the gameplay, we also get a glimpse of Higgs as a robo-samurai character who looks like Sting and wields an arc welder-like electric guitar. Yep, it's a Hideo Kojima game. We also get a hint of BB-28's fate, and numerous other characters make a return as well.

Here's the official description.

Embark on an inspiring mission of human connection beyond the UCA. Sam—with companions by his side—sets out on a new journey to save humanity from extinction. Join them as they traverse a world beset by otherworldly enemies, obstacles and a haunting question: should we have connected? Step by step, legendary game creator Hideo Kojima changes the world once again.
