Hideo Kojima has discussed a little more about his upcoming game Death Stranding and its elusive multiplayer system.
Thanks to a new translation from Reddit user xxxjohnnygxxx, Hideo went into a little detail about the new multiplayer system. The news that came out of the quote is directly linked to the fact he compared the multiplayer system to something similar to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. This is very interesting as he notes “Miles thinks he is the only Spider-Man, then different characters from different alternate dimensions also become Spider-Man [….] DS will be different but it’s a clue towards what the game is about.”
Check out the full quote from Kojima himself down below:
I’m going to let you down, but I cannot say anything at the moment. All I can say is that it is an open world in which the players will quickly find out that the approach is different. Its going to be hard task and you must reconnect a fractured society and split up humans, you do this with a character who has nothing to do with superheroes. Sam is just by himself and must survive, he has no special power. The more you play the more you will notice that he isn’t the only one in this situation. At launch, there will probably be millions of people who will play and you will be CONNECTED to them USING SOMETHING…
It’s like Miles Morales in the Spider-Man Spider-Verse. Miles thinks he is the only Spider-Man, then different characters from different alternate dimensions also become Spider-Man and meet up, all of a sudden Miles is not alone! Of course DS will be different but it’s a clue towards what the game is about. Sorry but i really cant say anymore, is that ok?
