Hideo Kojima’s latest project that has generated an enormous amount of anticipation and curiosity has gone gold today. It has been a long road filled with many interesting trailers, a number of gameplay showings and then many more questions but excited fans are now just another step closer to getting their hands on Death Stranding to figure out for themselves on November 8th.
To announce the milestone, Kojima posted a tweet thanking all of the staff that contributed to the game and also showing pictures of Kojima with quite a happy grin on his face.

Going gold is a huge achievement for video game developers not only because it means the game is fully complete, but also because it means the game can be copied onto digital discs and is ready to be shipped around the world. Of course, the game will have DLC content ready to dish out online in the future so you can expect more content than what’s provided on the discs once you finish the main story campaign.
Even though the game is almost ready to come out, there are still a lot of questions about the mysterious title. Thankfully, within the last few months, we were introduced to some more characters in the story giving just a tiny bit more insight as to what is going on. One trailer recently was the introduction of Mama, which seems to be a woman who has a child tied to the violent invisible forces many are aware of in the game.
So many questions people would like answered and the wait is almost over to get engrossed into a bizarre and likely fascinating title that is the mind of Kojima. Death Stranding will be released on November 8th so sit tight just a little while longer.
