Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s 30-Minute-Long Mother Base Demo
Konami posted a 30-minute-long gameplay demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that focused on the things you'll be able to do at your Mother Base. Acting as the command center and home for Big Boss, Kaz Miller, Revolver Ocelot and the rest of the Diamond Dogs private military company, there are all kinds of fun and badass activities going on. You're able to see every single soldier, animal, vehicle or asset you Fultoned out in the wild and interact with them all. Those soldiers, turrets and vehicles will be important when you're chasing down intruders in your base who are trying to steal your stuff. You can develop your base and expand it, adding whole platforms for support, medical, animal care, weapons development, etc. For example, going indoors at the development platform sends you to Huey Emmerich's lab, where he's working on all kinds of Metal Gear-related weaponry. The support team can help Snake in the field, including helicopter backup, long-range missile strikes, smoke distractions and even changing the weather.
You've got to love that they used a P.T. emblem for Mother Base in this video.
We get a proper introduction to some of the otherworldly supervillains Big Boss will have to face in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
In the midst of all the controversy surrounding Konami and Hideo Kojima's departure from the company, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is now less than four weeks away from release. While Konami is looking like a villain in the treatment of both Hideo Kojima and its other employees, Big Boss has his own villains he must face throughout the events of The Phantom Pain. Luckily, this new Gamescom 2015 trailer for Metal Gear Solid V introduces us to a few of these baddies while giving us a sample of their bizarre powers.
Everyone is probably right in speculating that the floating, gas mask-wearing redhead is a young Psycho Mantis, but I'm still interested in hearing more about the old man and the human torch. Unfortunately, this trailer is nowhere near as impressive as the ones previously directed by Kojima, and his absence in organizing these scenes is quite noticeable. Nevertheless, I'm still eagerly awaiting to play.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Sept. 1. The PC version was recently announced to be launching on Sept. 1 as well. Regardless of Konami's discouraging actions, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is still "A Hideo Kojima game."
