Konami Digital has announced the next chapter in the Metal Gear Solid franchise. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which will be released on the Sony PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To reinforce the announcement and address all the questions fans have been asking all year, Kojima Productions unveiled a brand new trailer for the new title at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco.
“Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots have been a phenomenal success and one of the most highly regarded titles of all time. As such, we have very high expectations for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” commented Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital. “We are confident that the FOX Engine will both expand and revolutionise the Metal Gear Solid series, and will provide the customary high-quality and immersive experiences that are associated with all titles produced by Kojima Productions.”
First unveiled in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker the new Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer shows the fall of Mother Base and provides visual hints that unveil the connection between Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The trailer also showcases the FOX Engine’s exceptional level of visual quality with seamless integration of gameplay and cut scenes. For the newly released trailer, please make sure to visit www.metalgearsolid.com as the video is behind an age wall, I can’t embed it on the site due to some of the scenes within it.
Now all we have do to is sit tight for a solid release date, either way its safe to say this is looking set to be one of the best looking games of this generation.
