Tokyo Game Show 2019 is underway, and one of the first major events is the PlayStation Presents Live Show. The show starts strong with a gameplay demonstration featuring none other than Hideo Kojima’s much-anticipated new game, Death Stranding.

The show is being broadcast live, and you can watch through the embed below. We’ll continue to update this story as the event unfolds, so keep checking back for more. The briefing itself begins at 3:30 PM local time in Japan.
