Despite the fact that Death Stranding was officially announced two years ago during E3 2016, the forthcoming project from Kojima Productions still maintains a shroud of secrecy that makes it difficult to discern exactly what the game will be about. Nevertheless, the studio continues to diligently promote the new PlayStation 4 exclusive, and the developer has even announced that it will hold a stage presentation for the title during Tokyo Game Show 2018.
As seen in the tweet below from Kojima Productions' official Twitter account, Death Stranding's stage show at TGS 2018 will take place on September 23, 2018, and will feature the game's director, Hideo Kojima, and the cast members of the Japanese version. Unfortunately, though, no additional details have been provided as to what fans should expect out of the presentation during the annual Japanese video game trade show.

With little to go on as to what could be on display during Death Stranding's TGS 2018 stage show, lots of fans are understandably hoping that Kojima decides to use the expo to release footage that provides more precise details about how the title will play. While the gameplay reveal at E3 2018 was definitely impressive in terms of visual flair, it failed to elaborate exactly what players will be doing in the game, with many having argued that it only raised more questions.
All things considered, Death Stranding fans thankfully won't have to wait too much longer to find out what Kojima Productions has planned for Tokyo Game Show 2018, as the stage show is scheduled to occur in just a few weeks from now. While folks will have their fingers crossed for a better understanding of what's to come in the PS4 exclusive, if history is any indication of what will be on display, then we should expect to encounter even more mysteries.
Death Stranding currently lacks an official release date, but is expected to launch as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
