1440 ratings | 76868 views
Even after having seen three pretty meaty trailers for the game, we still don't know what Death Stranding is going to be like, or what it's going to be about- in fact, the number of questions we have about the game has only increased with each new trailer. In this feature, we're going to take a look at what we feel are fifteen of the best and most interesting theories we've read (or could think of) about the upcoming game.

Notice in Mads compass in his trailer is going apeshit, so maybe the "explosion or whatever has completely sent the earth's magnetic field haywire.

If anything? I am sure this game has something to do with reincarnation. @7:03 do you see the space suite keychain hanging from the baby's womb? This might indicate the inner child theory, meaning Sam Porters is holding his inner child in his hand. Because the guy in the space suit as we know, is NR.

And the baby doll has a "scar" on its belly exactly where Norman Reedus has one on his belly.
The baby Guillermo holds opens the exact same eye the baby doll does.

Has anyone theorized about why the people cover their mouths around the black hand prints..? I don't think it's simply to keep quiet ...

Del Toro and Reedus are wearing the same electronic cuffs.....if you want to understand the inverted rainbow, check out SYMBOLS IN AN ALIEN SKY... Did you miss Mads doing a complet Silent Hill change over? Then back to no black oil on his face? What about what his compass was doing? That under water seen is the real world. Notice all the fish and whale from the black sand beach are chilling like nothing is going on..
Lord Telperion (1 month ago)
-Bridges: The remnant of the central government "bridging" the gulf between the surviving cities of the USA. Instead of a contiguous whole, the nation is now more a network of settlements, thus the spiderweb symbol. It's other function could be bridging the gulf between dimensions, or the gulf between life and death. -Stands/black cords: Everything (at least everything dead) has a cord coming from them. Like an umbilical cord. I believe this is a visual manifestation of the link between yourself and your past, your birth and your death. OR, it represents the link to your future... the baby is your potential, all your possible futures. The cords are a symbol of you (or other beings) as your true self in the Fourth Dimension, as a long undulating snake from the moment of your birth to the moment of your death.  -Mads Mikkelsen's character: He could be linked, not to random dead soldiers, but to possible versions of himself in possible timelines. Instead of being connected to a baby, his past or perhaps his living future, he is connected to those worlds where he died. He's been able to reverse the natural flow and obtain some power of command over these dead futures.

Why does the baby doll from the second trailer have a C-Section like Norman Reedus

Hi guys, I feel like I need to say I don`t agree with most of the theories in this video. Allow me to explain my take on the trailers. #1: spiderweb logo, the name on the suit: I think this is a post apocalyptic world, our planet is attacked by some other dimensional beings. Civilization collapsed and one of the first steps to re-estabilish any kind of global civilization is to set up a messaging and transport servie. I believe Norman Reedus is a simple mailman. A Porter. The center of the postal service is New York, thus the spiderweb logo. #2: I don`t see this one mentioned anywhere: I think there are two kinds of beings in the trailers, one kind I call the ghosts, those are the bad guys and they are only visible by the special light device that most mailman has. They are the ones leave dark liquid around them, even in their footsteps (however they seem to walk on their hands) They take people for whatever reason. The other kind, is maybe weird to say, but I think they are the protectors and they show up at the end of every trailer. Five of them. They are not that ghosty, have a more visible egde of their bodies. When they show up, the other kind is "scared" away. #3: The bad ghosts can cause things of their world to be projected to our world, for example the black catepillars, they can also cause dead matter to move in our world, see the skeleton soldiers. They can cause visions in people, for example that water or black liquid is flooding. There is one part when Reedus goes completely underwater, that must be a dream. Then the 5 protectors show up and the water and dead whale visions are gone. Probably that is why the Porters have a dream catcher. Dream catchers supposed to catch bad dreams so it does not get into your mind. #4: I think the evil is fed by dead matter, see the main soldier character in the tunnel has cables to all of his skeleton soldier. And vica-versa the still living people has cables to babies. I think they don`t feed off of babies, but they discovered that the evil leaves them more alone if they carry a baby. So the baby is some sort of protection. #5: I think people shot themselves when they are being grabbed just because they want to die the conventional way. It may be much worse to die by the interdimensional beings, or they may want to avoid coming back as skeleton soldiers or some pupets.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand what a load of shite. Not one mention of it may being MGS0, set before metal gear solid 3 and this is all taking place in the boss' head whilst shes in a coma. The baby is ocelot, norman is the boss. Its purgatory. mads is the sorrow, isnt it obvious? hes controlling the dead fgs! the sorrow was a medium and communicated with dead soldiers to find out whats going on in the battlefield, theres too many coincidences between this game and mgs3.
nick brown (4 months ago)
If Mads is The Sorrow Death Stranding could be set in the same place The Sorrow sends Big Boss in MGS 3. Its not like that place Big Boss is sent in Snake Eater is under water. Its not like The Sorrow controls dead soldiers souls. The Sorrow hovers like that and points like that when using mind control exacly like that webs and all. Who else points like that and uses dolls on stings? Psycho Mantis. Plus a possible woman waiting on clone babys. Hmmm Someone forgot to tell Kojima Metal Gear died. Has Kojima Phantom Pained Metal Gear. Was Venom Snake and the end of Phantom pain a Kojima lesson? "Get used playing in a diffrent skin. Look you did not even notice you were not Big Boss". What took you so long Kojima? Its proberly not but to many similaritys for the mind not to drift there.

I wonder what the correlation is between the fish and whales in the death realm vs the beached fish and whales in the main (living?) realm? The fish are alive in the death realm but dead in the living realm?

Is Mads character The Sorrow?
TheTruth Spy (5 months ago)
Here`s my take on it. This game is purgatory. The tech device the character wears allows him to see the dead or enemy. The baby is him at birth which is a life source which must be activated whenever the evil spirits appear. And you play as him as an adult in purgatory. Everyone is dead, and the gameplay could be them having to face up to their regrets and choices they made in life, like interacting souls deemed to suffer until realisation sets in of where they are. Every thing in the game is dead basically, the whales in the trailer, the evil spirits etc. Its in between life and death I think. Like the tv series lost, they are in purgatory. He`s dead but I don't think he knows he is, and maybe that applies to everyone else, they need to "wake up", or "wake up" to move on from lingering In purgatory and dwelling on their past. The tv series Lost was the same, they had to forgive their mistakes and regrets and self actualize their life to be at peace.

Death Stranding has to do with mankind, after so many years of exploiting the environment, ultimately putting the final nail in the coffin regarding their survival and we know it. We had a chance to stop it, Global warming has forced its Superpowers to war with each other in a futile attempt at grabbing what dwindling resources each has left. Forced by desperation, it appears somewhere in or around NYC (Manhattan Project anyone?) some apocalyptic nuclear event occurred as a result of scientists throwing a Hail Mary for a solution to the crisis. Could be an experimental test on creating something like sustainable fusion energy or, considering the bleak tone of the storyline possibly something like cloning/key to immortality. Something could have gone very, very wrong during the attempt and the massive amount of energy being used created a mini black hole which ruptured space and time. It's called the United Cities because from the picture it appears either due to global flooding or the other cataclysmic event, the entire continent of North America was ripped apart from the bottom causing the states to no longer be "united". "Bridges" represents the company the main protagonist works for that he, and the members on the mission, are responsible for regarding the protection and transportation of some unknown precious cargo between whatever of those major metropolitan cities we have left. Regarding Del Toro's part, there's a pretty good chance he escaped with the secret formula/protagonist clone baby to keep it from being used and abused by Mans...hence the dog tags with advanced relativity-related equations written on it, so when he clones himself, despite being washed of his memories, he still has the most vital information. Probably the reason for something to do with the handcuffs as well. Hell, Del Toro could even be an older version of our main guy. Who knows?! All I know is I love this whole J.J. Abrams like tease they're throwing at us and am looking forward to more teasers further down the line

I have the feeling that there is a big plot in this game. It is that the child/fetus he carries is himself. But if that's right, then there's another thing.
Nick Plays (6 months ago)
what's clear to me for sure so far is that Kojima is definitely making the game he wanted to make with the PT project. While Konami might own Silent Hill they don't own the concept of PURGATORY. And that's what this game is about. It's Kojima's interpretation of purgatory, albeit a more sci-fi inspired purgatory than a spiritual one (like in Silent Hill) and that could very well be on purpose just for the sole bases of legal liabilities. Kojima's purgatory appears to be centered around inter/extra dimensional beings that have "Stranded" themselves onto our reality (not unlike how sea creatures will beach themselves). The reason for the invading beings "beaching" themselves in our reality has clearly not yet been revealed but their presence appears to be causing some kind of overlapping (or colliding) effect between the two (possibly more?) realities. For all we know Norman Reedus' character could very well be going through a personal purgatory haunted by the fact that he murdered his family (the people in the picture) where he's haunted by them until he can finally remember the fact that he murdered them...eerily similar (in my opinion) to several plot lines in Silent Hill.

Ivan Kazuya (6 months ago)
My theory is I think there is a natural interstellar enemy that exterminates species. They use all means for psychological trauma. Perhaps the protagonist is somewhat of an advanced/futuristic human which for some reason can get pregnant and has to take care of a infant which he carries inside him. I want to think the infant is him and that the reason is because this natural enemy manipulates time. The only way to keep time in place is to eat a worm. Perhaps the more he progresses with this existing reality in which this enemy can perhaps manipulate is to stay alive by going to different planets or carrying on with a mission to deliver goods for the sake of defeating the enemy. I also want to think that the protagonist was once a prisoner of some sort, perhaps he was an assassin or some sort of scientist. That's my theory. Nevertheless, I care more abut games that move my imagination than the average Hollywood blockbuster game. Like a good novel, I want it to take me places that gose beyond what the average mind can come up with. I wish we had more brilliant minds like Kojima-san.

My theory is, everytime Norman Reedus caught by that thing. That thing place a baby inside his body and Norman has to cut his stomach hence the scar on his stomach. The baby is will soon grow to be the dark entity thing, so before that happens the baby will be placed inside that jar. The baby is used to detect their kind. What yall thought about this?

emodesitt94 100% fake and stupid. No matter how convincing a youtube video picking out random obscure details (like how sorrow and mads do similar look up) it makes no sense. Konami did not allow Kojima and Del toro to publicly shit on them, cancel Silent hills and put out a game they knew people were going to hate just to hype another game. Kojima wants to make something different. Why in the world would he create an entire new world and theme just to slap the MG title on it

this game is actually a MSG prequel based on The Sorrow
