Konami released a brand new trailer for METAL GEAR SOLID 5: THE PHANTOM PAIN, the next chapter of the METAL GEAR SOLID franchise at this year’s E3. This game will be available on Sony’s Playstation 3 and 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and One systems.
This new video features the FOX Engine’s exceptional level of photo-realistic visual quality with seamless integration of gameplay and cut scenes. This will also be the first time a METAL GEAR SOLID game gets the “open world” treatment and will feature real-time weather, realistic passage of time, and more importantly more freedom to choose your tactics to navigate the terrain and accomplish your missions. The returning characters what were revealed so far are the following: Snake, Kazuhira Miller, Ocelot, and Emmerich. METAL GEAR SOLID V: The Phantom Pain will also introduce new characters to the game’s universe and focus on the tragedies and ugliness of war. You can view the director’s cut video for a more vivid picture of these dark themes. You will also get a glimpse of a few new characters introduced to the Metal Gear universe.
I have to say I am very excited at the prospect of an open world stealth action game. It looks like an insta-buy to me even with such little details. Nevertheless, we’ll be digging up for more details to salivate over in the months to come.
