Very exciting news: Norman Reedus (@wwwbigbaldhead) will join us live to present @thegameawards on Thursday night! #TheGameAwards Don't miss the livestream at https://t.co/9G7L2Th1VG pic.twitter.com/kRPuTZHgjR— Geoff Keighley (@geoffkeighley) December 4, 2017
Through the use of motion capture, Norman Reedus plays the protagonist in Death Stranding, a mysterious new game from the mind of Hideo Kojima. While any title that Kojima takes on is worth paying attention to, the powerhouse cast of talent that the game will include that ranges from actors to game creators to directors makes its release that much more anticipated.
Prior to the reveal of Reedus making an appearance at The Game Awards, it was also confirmed that Kojima himself would be presenting during the event along with Guillermo del Toro, the movie director responsible for films like Pacific Rim and Pan’s Labyrinth. The director also has a spot as a character in Death Stranding through the use of motion capture, and with the combined efforts of del Toro, Kojima, and Reedus, it Death Stranding will be one of the more prominent reveals that’ll be seen during The Game Awards when it airs on Dec. 7.
It’d be hard to miss what’s being pieced together at this point, but even though these three presenters have all been confirmed, others are still waiting on the possibility that one more will join the lineup. Actor Mads Mikkelsen also has a spot in Death Stranding as an antagonist in the game, and even though he hasn’t been mentioned as a presenter during The Game Awards, that hasn’t stopped people from hoping that he’ll be the next confirmation.
The Game Awards is scheduled to air on Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. PT.
