Ahead of it's November 8 release, Kojima Productions' has announced that Death Stranding has hit a significant development milestone and has gone gold.

This means the game will be on its way to manufacturing, but the team will no doubt still be hard at work on the usual day one patch, which has become commonplace with the majority game releases.

These next few weeks will see Kojima Productions ironing out bugs and making last-minute tweaks in time for release day. It's been a fascinating development cycle, and I can't wait to get my hands on the game on November 8.
