It’s hard to describe Death Stranding. It’s easy to describe what you do while playing it, though: You are Sam Porter Bridges, a man who builds literal and metaphorical bridges for an post-apocalyptic organization called Bridges. And, because why not, Conan O’Brien is there. It’s not subtle, but it can be confusing.
Everything you do in Death Stranding revolves around being a porter, delivering cargo, and helping others. You’ll also be fighting ghosts and terrorists, but that’s oddly tangential.
