Metal Gear Solid V: Freedom of Infiltration Gameplay Video
The latest gameplay video of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain showcases four completely different approaches for finishing the same mission.
Konami has posted an in-depth look at the Afghanistan mission we've previously seen from Metal Gear Solid V, showing a variety of ways in which you can infiltrate the compound and take out your target. The first version of this mission includes Snake teaming up with the invisible sniper, Quiet. The player assigned tranquilizer rounds for both Quiet and Snake to ensure no one dies. During this segment, we get a special look at team mechanics. You can order Quiet to aim at the head of a specific enemy and she won't shoot until you shoot the guy near him, effectively taking out two guys simultaneously. Likewise, Quiet can shoot a grenade in midair to change its trajectory towards enemies you normally wouldn't be able to throw the bomb towards.
The second version of the mission shows what happens if you Rambo your way through. Snake dons heavy combat armor and uses the chaingun of the helicopter to take out enemies while circling the compound. The third runthrough snows how to takeout enemies from afar. Snake's robotic arm can launch Mega Man VI-style and be remotely controlled to incapacitate guys from afar.
The final walkthrough is all about stealth while showing some innovative uses for the box. Snake can now use the cardboard box to sled down hills at a fast speed without making much noise or having his head up. Snake left the box in the middle of the road as a squad of enemies stopped their vehicle to investigate it. He slapped some C4 on the back of one of the soldiers searching the area. The platoon didn't find anything, went back to their base and Snake detonated the C4 while the soldier walked by the mission target. Snake killed the guy without firing a single bullet or entering the base at all.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and its multiplayer companion Metal Gear Online will be available on September 1 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
