Obviously the latter was fake- the ‘leak’ in question was actually a photograph of Mykie from the Glam&Gore YouTube channel, who today posted a long, detailed explanation of how it was achieved. You can watch that video below, actually, it’s rather fascinating.
However this doesn’t completely put Emma Stone out of the equation. Kojima has been consistently teasing about her involvement in the past so she may be in the game after all. Death Stranding itself is currently due out on PlayStation 4 at some time in the future, with a PC release to follow after that. Hopefully, we get another official trailer for the game this E3.
