New Death Stranding Trailer Puts the Spotlight on Heartman

In a new trailer for Death Stranding, we get a chance to get a closer look at one of the more interesting characters in the game.

Just a little bit after revealing the box art, a new trailer was just released for Death Stranding that showcases Heartman, one of the characters featured in the game. And let me tell you, it’s a little weird. I know Kojima is going full Kojima in Death Stranding, which is apparently not a stealth game, and I can’t tell if that is going to be a good thing or a bad thing yet. All I know is that I can’t wait to play whatever the hell this game is.

In the new trailer, Heartman, one of the most ironic names you will ever hear, is resuscitated due to a heart condition that kills him every 21 minutes. When he is awoken, he converses with Sam about how his daily life goes. How all of the basic necessities of life can fit into a 21-minute window. He mentions that the two of the main difficulties of living with his condition is both sleep and intercourse. But he also mentions that someone like him doesn’t really need to worry about them.

At the end of the trailer, Heartman says that the 21 minutes that he spends alive is really just his downtime. What he really wants is to return back to his death so that he can continue his research on the Death Stranding.

The last line of the trailer was pretty ominous if you ask me. Heartman states: “My body may be present, but my soul is on the beach. I am already dead.” What the hell is this game?

Death Stranding is set to release on November 8, 2019, for PS4. If you would like to pre-order the game, you can do so right here through Amazon.
