Recently, via a 49-minute gameplay trailer launched at Tokyo Game Show, Sony and the game producer Hideo Kojima revealed some of the best and worst features of Death Stranding. On the positive side, Death Stranding would be an excellent SSX game and will come with something exciting – a hoverboard as an in-game item.
However, that’s nothing new in Kojima’s games, although the fans showed their enthusiasm over the present of the hoverboard in Death Stranding. Besides, there will be other real-world items in the game. As revealed, similar to PUBG, whatsoever, you have to drink Monster Energy drink to restore your stamina.
We know that strange product placement in games is not a novelty for Hideo Kojima and Sony. However, the presence of real-world items in Death Stranding might not cause any issues among players. It might seem odd, but it could be the future of in-game advertising.
