'Death Stranding' News: Hideo Kojima & Guerrilla Games Partnership To Raise Bar; New Trailer Is More Twisted! [VIDEO]By Ernest A, UniversityHerald Reporter
Most of the fans of the acclaimed game designer Hideo Kojima are aware of the upsetting events where Konami abruptly canceled its "Silent Hills" game after they've just launched a PT (playable trailer) for it. Since then, Kojima has moved on to make his own studio. With his partnership with Guerrilla Games, they are planning to release "Death Stranding" which was said to raise the bar in the gaming industry. Moreover, the latest trailer for the game revealed that it is more twisted than the last, according to sources.
It was reported by Gaming Bolt that Kojima Productions' highly-anticipated open-world action game, "Death Stranding," was said to be using the new Decima Engine developed and based off of Guerrilla Games' technology. This is the same engine that is also being used in developing other upcoming triple-A games, like "Horizon: Zero Dawn" for the PlayStation.
The source went on to cite Mark Cerny, who is known as a system architect for the PS4, during the PlayStation Experience 2016. He went on to discuss that the partnership between Kojima Productions and Guerrilla Games was brought about the latter's Decima Engine being designed to be open to others, which resulted in the impressive looks of "Death Stranding."
Kojima chose to partner with Guerrilla Games for "Death Stranding" because other studios' engines were primarily designed to cater their own titles. On top of this, Cerny also mentioned that the Decima Engine is a very deep and intuitive tool-set.
As such, other notable people in the gaming industry took notice of this partnership and commended it by saying that they will raise the bar, Gaming Bolt reported. Naughty Dog's Drew Thaler went on to tweet that the partnership is a good match up where both creative powerhouses will soon raise the bar.
Kojima Productions using Guerrilla's engine is a hot, hot matchup. Creative and technical powerhouses. They're going to raise the bar.

Moreover, the recent trailer for "Death Stranding" was said to be even more twisted than the first, Wired reported. Though it didn't explain much to fans what's going on in the trailer, fans can discern that the game will be set in an open-world facing turmoil and crisis during a war.
As such, it seems that fans can expect only great things once Kojima releases "Death Stranding" on the PS4 and PC.
