Death stranding is going to be an asynchronous multiplayer. You won't meet other players in your game but the decisions they make will affect your game world. So, strand basically means that your game is connected with other player's game. So, for example, the scene wherein Sam takes a piss. This causes a mushroom to bloom at that spot, but if many players do the same thing at that spot, something different will happen. You are basically connecting your world with others through "strands" of gameplay. What do you guys think?
