Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Konami has released the Gamescom 2015 gameplay walkthrough of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Here’s what you’ll see:

With the epic fifth installment of the stealth-action series released on Sept. 1, the new video will show all-new footage related to the Mother Base aspect of the game. The specially-created video will detail building options and unique customization elements. The video will also explain the game’s multi-player FOB (Forward Operating Base) feature, wherein users can establish additional bases around the globe to manage captured resources – and demonstrate for the first time – how users can infiltrate other players’ FOB bases to steal resources as well.

The new footage highlights the strategic heart to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The game itself spans a huge, open world setting and greatly expands the series’ famed sneaking elements. Likewise, a host of new characters – both allies and enemies – tell a story driven by revenge as franchise protagonist Big Boss enters a series of battlefields following the deaths of his colleagues. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is brought to vivid life with realistic weather patterns and day/night cycles. Thus, players can adapt their tactics to match the changing environment, creating an intuitive and non-linear gameplay experience.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will launch on September 1 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Its online component, Metal Gear Online, will launch in October on consoles and in January on PC.
