Today, during a special panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Death Stranding creative director Hideo Kojima revealed Death Stranding's PlayStation 4 box art, for both the standard version and a steelbook version that presumably comes with a more expensive package of the game. The standard cover features the game's protagonist, Sam Bridges, who is played by Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame. Meanwhile, the game's steelbook version also features Sam, but a different look at the character.
As you can see in the images below, both covers are pretty simple and clean in design, which isn't very surprising given they are covers for a Kojima game. Interestingly, Kojima says he designed the steelbook version himself.
I don't buy physical copies of games -- unless it's a Sega Soccer Slam remaster -- but even I can appreciate these designs. They aren't the most grabbing cover arts, but they look nice, and will look great on a shelf alongside your other PS4 games.
Death Stranding is in development for PS4 and the PS4 only, though there are some rumors suggesting it will eventually come to PC as well.
