MGS V demo

If you’re a fan of the Metal Gear Solid games and interested in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you were probably disappointed when the E3 demo was displayed only to the press in a closed-doors showing. Hideo Kojima didn’t feel it was ready to be shown to fans yet, as it still needs improvement, but so many fans wanted to see it that he finally gave in.

The demo was streamed this morning on Kojima Station, along with a discussion of E3 2014. Start at around 41 minutes into the video to skip straight to The Phantom Pain.

Despite Kojima’s reluctance to show it, this demo looks great and won a lot of praise from fans. Take a look and tell us what you think.

The Phantom Pain Dwarfs Previous MGS Games

MGS V

Well, if you missed the gameplay preview of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain because of us, we apologize. When we did the time conversion for the airing of Kojima Station, we accidentally reversed it and said the webcast would air Friday morning, instead of this morning.

Take a look at this snippet of gameplay to get a feeling for what The Phantom Pain will be like.

Kojima also showed the huge map for The Phantom Pain, with the maps of previous games in the series (from Metal Gear all the way up to MGS V: Ground Zeroes) highlighted within it to show how tiny they are in comparison.

To make it clear: the entire area is The Phantom Pain’s map, and those little colored squiggles are the maps of the games pointing to them.

What do you think? (And once again, we apologize for the timing mix-up.)
