After Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding was confirmed to be a part of Sony’s upcoming E3 press conference, players have been left to wonder what about the game could be revealed during the event. We might have a better idea now, though, as the game’s director recently teased more footage might be in the mix.
According to a recent tweet from Hideo Kojima, players could see a new trailer during E3. As you can see below, the tweet contained two pictures, with the first showing the desktop of Kojima’s PC. The title of the only file on the screen begins with “E3_2018_trailer_edit.”
Due to the technical issues, this time I’m having sunlight filtering through trees just outside of the “window” instead of biting an “apple” to do my editing. pic.twitter.com/Bb3W8yNicE

The caption of the tweet also confirms Kojima was working on editing something, presumably the trailer in question. As for the second picture, which shows a model of Godzilla looking out of a window, it could have been a fun nod to the King of the Monsters or perhaps a tease that players will see a comparatively giant creature in the possible new trailer.
While the tweet doesn’t outright state a trailer will debut during Sony’s press conference, Kojima has previously teased announcements and details around Death Standing on social media. Last year, he tweeted about the progress of the game’s script and showed a new in-game image of one of the game’s actors, Guillermo del Toro.
However, despite the teases and debut of a lengthy trailer during The Game Awards last year, details about the plot and gameplay are still largely unknown, which could mean the teased E3 trailer will finally shed some light on the PlayStation 4 exclusive. Knowing Kojima’s aesthetic, though, we could just get more cryptic imagery.
Of course, the lack of concrete information about the game hasn’t stopped players from forming their own theories about it. In particular, fans recently pieced together clues that might point to who will be playing the game’s female lead.
Death Stranding is currently in development for PlayStation 4.
