Konami has unveiled a six minute trailer for their upcoming game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and it looks awesome! This is a visually impressive cinematic trailer that shows off a very cool and detailed world. It’s different from the previous games in the series, which I dig but others may not.
As the video came up on the big screen, two men on horseback were shown meandering through a dry landscape, speaking to each other about a situation involving Afghanistan. And one of them was Snake.
One unique aspect that may have come as a surprise to many is that it will be in an open world format. In addition, they’ve added new stealth maneuvers, one of which showed Snake leaning off the side of his horse to avoid detection on the nearside of his enemies. Another fun little addition is the inclusion of real-time weather persistent day/night cycle, a ton of vehicles ( horse, tank, and jeep were shown), and “unparalleled strategic freedom.” Other phrases Microsoft used were “Tactical Espionage Redefined…Deeper Stealth Action [and] Dynamic CQG.”
As for the game’s storyline, what we know so far is that it involves rescuing the character Kaz Miller, who originally appeared in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
To close out the Metal Gear Solid – The PhantomPain trailer, they previewed some new characters. A female sniper named Quiet was shown, as well as a boy named Eli, and characters named Ocelot, Emmerich, Code Talker, and Skull Face.
Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
