You probably already know this but Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriot is one of my all time favorite games. So when Konami announced Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, then you can obviously see the joy I have in writing this. It’s official! The fifth installment in the Metal Gear Solid franchise is set to release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 4, sadly no next-gen. Regardless, check out the new trailer below along with some awesome screenshots.
“Following the success of METAL GEAR SOLID 4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS, we have extremely high expectations for METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN,” said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “We hope to expand and revolutionize the METAL GEAR SOLID franchise utilizing the FOX Engine, while providing fans the high-quality and immersive experience they have come to expect from Kojima Productions.”
The trailer showcases the fall of Mother base and provides a visual connection of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Keep in mind however that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is actually a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and that they are actually two separate games. Till next time!
