Building a 5-star connection with BB in Death Stranding isn’t as simple as you’d think. If you’ve seen anything of Death Stranding ahead of its release you’re probably comfortable with the concept of a Bridge Baby, a jar-bound infant Sam uses to connect to the afterlife and keep BTs at bay. In-game your BB is your best friend as much as everyone else thinks it is nothing more than ‘equipment’, so you want to treat it right.
While the Death Stranding PC release date is still set for next year, we’re forging ahead with our guides coverage so that we’re 100% ready come launch day. Besides, we’re really enjoying our time with Kojima’s latest, even using a gamepad.
