Gamescom has always been considered to be Europe’s version of E3, with many of the same developers and publishers showing off games and projects. This year’s Gamescom will be no different, however today we learned that a special guest will be joining Gamescom’s opening night live stream. Hideo Kojima will be taking the Gamescom stage to show off never before seen footage of his upcoming game Death Stranding. This was announced on Twitter via Geoff Keighley who many know as a great personal friend and fan of Kojima.

With Death Stranding being just a little over 3 months away it will be interesting to see even more of the game. This will be Kojima’s first appearance at Gamescom since 2014. It will be very interesting to see what we could learn in this new footage.
