In case you’re unfamiliar, Death Stranding is an open-world action game from Hideo Kojima. After a series of cryptic trailers since it was first announced in 2016, we still have no idea regarding what the game’s story (or even its gameplay) will be. Still, as Kojima’s first non-Metal Gear game in decades, we’re definitely getting this on day 1!
Death Stranding will be released on the PS4 on November 8, 2019. The game will be released in the Philippines on the same day, with the standard edition priced at PHP 2,999. The Special Edition (SteelBook) meanhwhile, will be priced at PHP 3,899.
