Six more games are hoping to keep alive their hopes of reaching the GD World Cup knockout stages. We've got some absorbing encounters lined up today, and of course our big prize giveaway.  
We're coming up to the end of our first round of matches in the GD World Cup 2018, and two tournament favourites are about to slug it out. Cyberpunk 2077 is going to step out onto the pitched against Death Stranding. All you've got to do is vote on your most anticipated game to stand a chance of winning our grand prize.
Death Stranding is back, including the first gameplay, and it’s every bit as beguiling and confusing as it’s always been. Hideo Kojima is utterly ambitious and eccentric in equal measure, and even when we see footage of Death Stranding in action, we’re still precious little wiser as to what it all means.
It's the wee hours of the morning here in the UK, but it's time for the big one - Sony's E3 2018 PlayStation extravaganza. Sony comes into this conference safe in the knowledge that its PS4 is comfortably the bestselling console in the world right now, but it's going to be interesting to see how they maintain their hold on the market.
As expected, Hideo Kojima and Death Stranding were present and correct at The Game Awards 2017. Also as expected - a huge, cryptic new trailer for Death Stranding that’s happy to ask plenty more questions than it answers. Clocking in at eight minutes long, it touches on a number of themes raised in the previous two trailers, including babies in jars, all-consuming oil, floating figures in the sky, and Norman Reedus looking perplexed.
Death Stranding’s presence at The Game Awards this week is just about the industry’s worst kept secret. Last year we got a brand new trailer, and Hideo Kojima’s cosy relationship with Game Awards host Geoff Keighley is well-trodden ground.
As far as gaming mysteries go, Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding is right up there. It’s comfortably one of the most anticipated games in the world, and yet we know next to nothing about it except for a naked, crying Norman Reedus hugging a baby on a beach and zombie tanks. See, none the wiser. Still, Kojima’s confirmed during a recent interview that development of Death Stranding is going according to plan and the game is in a fully playable state right now.
Sony's favourite thing is to get you totally hyped for a game absolutely yonks before it ever hits PlayStation. This has got its upsides and downsides, but it does mean we could be set for an almost note for note repeat of last year's conference - Death Stranding, God of War, The Last of Us: Part II, Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human and Ni No Kuni II all inevitably being shown. If Sony's proven anything to us over the years though, it's that it's always capable of surprising us, and we expect E3 2017 to be no different.
