The upcoming PS4 exclusive Death Stranding, developed by Kojima Productions, showed off some social features in 49 minutes of gameplay at the Tokyo Game Show 2019 earlier this month. The gameplay showed how you will see bridges, ladders and more that other players have built and you can even like them. With this type of feature, there’s obviously a chance to troll others, leading them to their deaths, but Kojima feels that players won’t use this feature for evil much, at least not intentionally.
Hideo Kojima, the head of Kojima Productions, spoke about this social feature in an interview with GameSpot and seemed oblivious to the fact that gamers, especially with the anonymity that nicknames provide, can and will troll others at every turn. It is almost as if he’s never seen or played a Soulsborne game before, where notes of “hidden treasure” have probably led to millions of deaths.
Hideo Kojima explained that:
The chances of players not being evil too much in the PS4 exclusive Death Stranding is, without a doubt, small. There is just no way that players won’t go out of their way to troll others at every turn, by the thousands.
Hideo Kojima continued to explain situations in the upcoming PS4 exclusive that make him feel as if people won’t be intentionally evil to others all that much. You can read the explanation with examples below.
It remains to be seen if people will go out of their way to troll others, leading them into traps in Death Stranding. However, judging by every online game where things like this are possible, the head of Kojima Productions might be in for a surprise when the PS4 exclusive launches on 8 November 2019.
In the words of Barney Stinson: Challenge Accepted!
