Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay demonstrates new box abilities

Cover your box in soldiers and swimsuit models.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Konami debuted new gameplay of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain showing the game’s enhanced box usage.

For examples, players can pop out of the box, take out an enemy, and hide back in the box. You can also use the Fulton launching system from within the box.

Additionally, when you’re in trouble, you can vacate the box and use it as a decoy while it draws the attention of the enemy.

You can also stand up in the box, while a picture of a saluting soldier is plastered on its front, tricking the enemies into thinking you’re an ally. Or, you can put a picture of a swimsuit model to draw in their attention.

These are just a few examples of the “many” new things you can do with the cardboard box, but there are more surprises to come, Konami teases.

Watch the new gameplay below.
