The Death Stranding director has cleared up what kind of genre Death Stranding is, saying the title has created a "totally brand genre".
As I'm getting similar questions so I shall re-post. DS is not a stealth game. Could move subjectively but not a FPS shooting game either. By incorporating with the concept of connection(strand), it's totally brand new genre called action game/strand game(social strand system). pic.twitter.com/1KaQUVH9zL— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) June 5, 2019
