Little is known about Death Stranding at this point, other than it is a dark, open-world RPG starring Normal Reedus and Madds Mikkelsen as the protagonist and antagonist, respectively. You can get a taste of the music from the trailer that aired during The Game Awards 2016 below:
In addition, hardcore fans should be pleased to know that the music from the trailer, by Icelandic band Low Roar, will be released on vinyl due to a collaboration between the band, Kojima Productions, PlayStation and Mondo. The 12-inch single of “I’ll Keep Coming” and “Easy Way Out,” which is available for pre-order now and ships in February 2017, will be pressed on 180 gram clear vinyl with heavy black splatter.
