The Game Awards 2017, held in Los Angeles this Thursday, will be hosted by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro.
The cinephile duo first started collaborating on the now legendary P.T. and, since Kojima’s exit from Konami, are now in collaboration for the upcoming Death Stranding – of which we know little about save for its nutty trailer.

Produced by Geoff Keighley, The Game Awards is both an awards show and a chance for big game reveals – last year’s show debuted the first gameplay footage of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for instance.
This of course prompts a big question: will we be learning any more about Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding? The game defies speculation – we’re talking babies in jars, Norman Reedus (who was to be in Kojima’s now-cancelled Silent Hills) naked on a beach, and Guillermo Del Toro showing up in-game.
Back in November, Del Toro said, in an interview with IGN: “In Death Stranding I’m just a puppet. I don’t know what he’s gonna make me do. He’s supposedly going to show me the gameplay at some point in the next couple of weeks.”
Nothing has been announced, so this is all speculation, but there’s a crackle in the air when Kojima has something to reveal.
