On the Beach will get real-time changes on terrain, due to earthquakes, fires and more – That’s Gaming

The State of Play trailer for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach was a jam-packed one, and just days after its premiere, we’re still diving deep and discovering all the details it hides. And although making trailers that are intentionally mysterious and raise a constant stream of questions is very much Hideo Kojima’s MO for marketing his games, during a recent episode of his YouTube show HideoTube (the first in more than seven years) he shared some important new details about the game itself while commenting on the aforementioned trailer.

One important detail Kojima revealed was that Death Stranding 2: On the Beach will feature real-time terrain formation. Players will encounter natural disasters such as earthquakes, forest fires, floods and more, which will change the terrain dynamically and in real time, forcing players to change their plans and improvise on the spot.

Of course, we already saw glimpses of how that will materialize in the game in the recent trailer, where a flash flood was shown destroying a bridge, not to mention an entire mountainside collapsing during an earthquake. Whether we can expect all natural disasters in the game to be so severe, and how much variety there will be in the types of disasters you will face, remains to be seen.

Speaking of the aforementioned scene with the flash flood, Kojima said, “This is a flood. The terrain changes in real time during the game. There are earthquakes, forest fires, floods, so you have to be careful. A road can be cut off.”

In the original Death Stranding, analyzing your surroundings and figuring out how best to navigate them and overcome their natural obstacles was a key element of gameplay, so the prospect of dynamic natural disasters throwing a spanner in the works on that front is certainly an intriguing one.

During the HideoTube episode, Kojima also confirmed that Death Stranding 2 is not only not set in the United Cities of America (as his most recent trailer made abundantly clear), it is set on an entirely different continent

Death Stranding 2: On the Beach is coming out in 2025 for PS5.
