Always wanted to start your own happy family but could never meet that perfect woman? Buy Death Stranding’s Collector Edition and you will receive your very own BB pod with a life-sized baby inside. We know it’s not like the real deal, but hey… at least you don’t have to worry about soccer lessons or missing that piano recital anytime soon.
An unusual game as Death Stranding had to have one of the weirdest collector’s editions ever. For the *cough modicum *cough sum of $200 you can get a crap-load of useless in-game items, an even more useless key chain, and your very own, super-duper, amazing BB pod with a life-sized baby in it. Yes, you heard it right! A BABY! Just for you!
Your lonely days are over my geeky friend, and you can thank Hideo Kojima’s disturbed mind and Sony Interactive Entertainment for it.
About Death Stranding
After a pretty obscure trailer released at 2018’s E3, this end of May 2019 brought us the first real look at Hideo Kojima’s unusual game. With more Norman Reedus in it, we got a glimpse of the gameplay and some of the other characters. Characterized as a “a completely new type of action game”. Placed somewhere in the not so distant future, Death Stranding lets players assume the role of Sam Porter Bridges (Reedus) and embark on a mission to reconnect isolated American cities and a fragmented society.
We also got a look at the upside-world, the level where the player ends when it dies and from where it has to come back. Kojima suggests that when the player returns to the world of the living, anything they did or any damage that an explosion or the like causes when the player dies remains persistent in the world and does not go away. The BB pod, containing the said baby, made a longer but still pretty puzzling appearance, with its main purpose not yet revealed.
The new trailer was revealed together with a special message from Hideo Kojima itself:
“People have created “Walls” and become accustomed to living in isolation. “Death Stranding” is a completely new type of action game, where the goal of the player is to reconnect isolated cities and a fragmented society. It is created so that all elements, including the story and gameplay, are bound together by the theme of the “Strand” or connection. As Sam Porter Bridges, you will attempt to bridge the divides in society, and in doing create new bonds or “Strands” with other players around the globe. Through your experience playing the game, I hope you’ll come to understand the true importance of forging connections with others.”
