2. Death Stranding
The latest game from Hideo Kojima, the director behind the hugely popular Metal Gear Solid series, Death Stranding is the most ‘Kojima’ game you can imagine. Nominally an open-world action game, it doesn’t look or feel like any open-world game you’re used to playing. A recently released eight-minute trailer teased a mind-bending story dripping with mystery and suspense. It also has an all-star cast of motion captured performances, including Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead as the player character, Mads Mikkelsen and Léa Seydoux. Bizarrely, film directors Guillermo del Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn, who also specialise in weird storytelling, perform in motion captured roles.
Death Stranding release date: November 8
