One of the most anticipated titles to be revealed at this years E3 is Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, the title at the moment has very little confirmed knowledge about it.

Last week we saw that Hideo Kojima posted a picture of some moss, fans mobilized quickly to begin to look for hidden messages amongst the greenery but it seems that perhaps they were reading to much into the simple picture. Twitter user Rafael Andrade has posted a side by side comparison between rocks found in Iceland and those that Hideo Kojima posted to his Twitter.

Kojima actually came across Andrade's comparison tweet and re-tweeted it which could suggest that fans are on the right track assuming the location is somewhat close to Iceland. This is not the only piece of evidence that points towards Iceland, from the latest trailer we can see in the background of a certain scene that there is some moss in the setting. Kojima posted a very similar image to his Twitter 4 years prior, stating "Only moss lives here???"

Jak joined the TweakTown team in 2017 and has since reviewed 100s of new tech products and kept us informed daily on the latest science and space news. Jak's love for science, space, and technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
