The trailer itself wasn’t much to write home about, introducing some of the actors that will be involved in the title. We saw rather creepy headshots of actors Sophia Lillis, Hunter Schafer, and Udo Kier, as well as the reveal that famous director Jordan Peele will be involved in the making and that Kojima will be working closely with Xbox to make it happen.

Raiden’s shock reveal went down in history for all of the right reasons.

The trailer also ended with the tag “for the players and the screamers”, which gives us just a tiny hint that the game will be horror focused. Apart from that, we don’t know much else about OD, apart from the fact that Hideo Kojima is working with Xbox’s cloud technology to make a one-of-a-kind experience. It sounds like it’s going to be a mixture of a movie and a game, so it will be interesting to see how it shake out when it finally releases.

As for when that will be, we unfortunately didn’t get a release date for OD, meaning Kojima Productions now has two undated video games in production. Chances are we’ll have to wait until we see the release of Death Stranding 2 before OD releases to the public, though you never really know when it comes to Hideo Kojima these days. He may have yet another surprise up his sleeve in the coming years.

The reveal of Overdose will come as a welcome relief to fans of Kojima’s work, who have been wondering what the heck the title is ever since it originally leaked as “Overdose” back in 2022. A bunch of potato quality footage leaked at the time, revealing that Death Stranding actress Margaret Qually would be the leading role, and that it would be pretty spooky.

A very strange marketing campaign at the time hyped up fans even more, though it ended up being for Kojima’s other bizarre blockbuster Death Stranding 2. Ever since then, there’s been radio silence from Kojima and his team, other than the slightest tease from the man himself that his unannounced project is “unusual”. Given that all of Kojima’s games are unusual to a certain degree, that wasn’t exactly breaking news.

Thankfully, the game’s first official trailer has now been revealed, which fans will no doubt dissect for the smallest crumb of new information that may give us a better idea of what we’re actually looking at.
