Death Stranding Explained By Predictive Text

After years shrouded in almost-total mystery, a recent Death Stranding trailer has pulled back the curtain on this upcoming PS4 exclusive at long last. The footage provides some solid details about the gameplay, characters, and even a release date for the next title from the mind of Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima. So, everything makes sense now, right? Wrong.

Even though we know more about Death Stranding than before, many of the “answers” we got from the trailer simply led to more questions. We know Sam is the main character, but what drives him? What are all those villains with goofy names (like Cliff, Fragile, and Die-Hardman) doing? What’s up with Bridge Babies? Speculating is part of the fun, but we just want to put the theories to rest and get the real explanation, so we turned to the only authoritative source: our phones’ predictive text.

A bunch of Game Informer editors typed in some seed phrases (underlined below), and then let our phones finish the thoughts in order to reveal what’s really happening in Death Stranding. This is normally where we’d put a spoiler warning, but honestly, the odds of any of these things being correct are astronomically small, so you’re probably safe.
