Metal Gear Solid 5 Trailer Unveiled
Today has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are in fact the same game: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
The announcement process for Metal Gear Solid 5 was a complicated affair. This August, Kojima Productions announced Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, a sandbox action game. Then, at the Spike VGAs, a fictional company called Moby Dick Studio debuted a trailer for their game The Phantom Pain. The supposed leader of Moby Dick Studios, a bandaged man named Joakim Mogren, was interviewed by GameTrailers earlier this month. During the interview, it was revealed that the game used Kojima Production’s proprietary Fox Engine.
The game is set after the events of PSP title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Big Boss (aka Naked Snake) and his mercenary group Militaires Sans Frontières are under attack. Their base has been destroyed and Big Boss himself winds up in a hospital with one arm missing.
The MGS5 gameplay demo at GDC was running on PC. Presumably the game will hit consoles as well, but it’s not clear which ones yet.
