Death Stranding probably won’t get a playable teaser

The recent teaser trailer for Hideo Kojima’s upcoming game Death Stranding was, in typical Kojima fashion, the sort of trailer which presented way more questions than it answered. Sadly, players who were hoping to work towards those answers via an interactive demo experience in the vein of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes or the P.T. demo for Silent Hills might wind up being disappointed.

Speaking with Polygon, Kojima said that he doesn’t currently have any plans to release a playable demo experience for Death Stranding, but he also hasn’t completely ruled the possibility out either. If he were to do one, however, it would probably be a different experience than what was seen in the trailer:

"It wouldn't be fun at this point, so I don't think that's going to happen, because I want to do something new. But if I was to do that, I probably would try some different kind of approach."

At this point, we still know very little about what the heck Death Stranding will be. All we know is that the game will star actor Norman Reedus (of The Walking Dead and the cancelled Silent Hills fame), and that it will involve oil, babies, weird futuristic handcuffs, and beached whales. Were you expecting anything different from the mind of Hideo Kojima?
