OREANDA-NEWS Japanese game designer Hideo Kojima said his upcoming Death Stranding project will be an experiment in a completely new gaming genre. He told about this in his Twitter account on August 27.

Kojima said Death Stranding will not be a Stealth game (stealth-based video games). He himself classifies his creation as a Social Strand System or Strand Game. However, it is still unknown which elements are included in this genre.

“Since I am often asked about this, I note that Death Stranding is different from a stealth game. You can enjoy the game in first person, but this game is not a first person shooter. This is a completely new game genre, which is based on the concept of communication, and which we call an action game with a game of connections (social communication system),” said Hideo Kojima on his Twitter.
