Konami Digital Entertainment will use Gamescom to debut an all-new video showcasing key gameplay elements from the highly anticipated and controversial Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, while visitors at the show will be able to experience the game’s ‘A Hero’s Way’ mission via playable demo. The publisher will also reveal a new trailer at the show.
With the epic fifth installment of the stealth-action series released on September 1st, 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 be released on September 1st. Gamescom will be held in Cologne from August 5th-9th.
