*Update: the gameplay trailer shown at GDC has now surfaced and can be seen at the bottom of this page.
Hideo Kojima has attended this years Game Developers Conference to give a talk on the new FOX Engine called “Photorealism through the eyes of a FOX: The Core of Metal Gear solid Ground Zeroes“, where as predicted by many fans and media outlets, he has confirmed the existence of Metal Gear Solid 5.
Before the reveal of MGS5, Kojima took to the stage with his face wrapped in Bandages (in reference to Kojima’s recent Joakim Mogren PR stunt), and presented a new video for The Phantom Pain.
The walkthough video isn’t yet available but we’ve gotten hold of a description;
The video began with the title reveal Metal Gears Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and switches to Snake (Big Boss) awakening from a from a 9 year coma. Having lost a lot of his bodies functions, he crawls though the Hospital.
Snake follows another patient and they try to make their way to an elevator when a female figure raises up through the floor, then disappears up into the ceiling and shortly after an explosion follows.
After the explosion hits, Snake and the fellow he is with are both lying on the ground and a men donning a trench coat reveals himself, passing thought the flames before disappearing.
The two head for the emergency stairs. Snake is still suffering from muscle atrophyand and crawls further until he can muster the strength to stand.
When Snake can walk and escapes the Hospital, the video reveals a massive open world in which you can explore freely.
All the gameplay was shown on a running PC.
A trailer for Metal Gear Solid 5 has been revealed and we’ve got that too;
Moments of note we’ve been able to spot in the trailer we’re Kaz Miller, the MSF base from Peace Walker and a possible young Psycho Mantis. If you spot anything yourself then hit up the comments below.
