Kojima talks about MGSV: The Phantom Pain at Spike TV’s All Access Live

During an interview with Geoff Keighley for Spike TV’s E3 show All Access Live, Kojima talked a little bit about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Kojima-All-Access-Live-2014-Interview

The 30 minute gameplay presentation will show some of the new open world concepts that weren’t in Ground Zeroes, such as changing time and weather, and a larger map.

While they were talking, a screenshot came up showing a room full of people.

Kojima said this screenshot ties into the story of Snake, as he starts getting people together, forming a new group.

Story and gameplay are deeply tied. “I try to create a game where players get very emotionally involved into the game.” Kojima said, speaking through his translator Mendoza.

Of course, this is a story of revenge. “Snake and his comrades will go to extends that maybe they shouldn’t go.” This also ties into the events of how he becomes Big Boss, and the creation of Outer Heaven.

The team has been making adjustments based on feedback from Ground Zeroes, mainly to the controls, and The Phantom Pain’s playability will be improved.

Kojima added that they have never created something of this scale, so it’s pretty hard to make. “The development has proven to be very though.”

    Sweet! Is it June 10 though? It’s still the 9th over here.

    • Yeah, over here it’s almost 2 am.

      • Raymondius

        Almost 2 am? Can I ask where are you? It’s exactly the same time zone here.

        • Amsterdam.

          • Raymondius

            Great! I’ve been there, pretty nice, loved it! Spain here. Well enough off-topic, haha!

  • PrinceHeir

    Can’t wait for gameplay footage 🙂

    • PrinceHeir

      I know this if kinda off topic.

      Evil Within is my most anticipated game this year and it’s coming to PS4. The Last of Us Remastered is coming as well as GTAV.

      So yeah i’m glad i waited for the PS4 versions on some of the old gen games 😀

      But my two most hype games of next year is Uncharted 4 Thief’s End and Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain.

      I may finally buy a PS4 by the time these games comes out 🙂

      I can’t decide which one will be better!!! Especially how both franchises are one of my favorite games this generation.

      It will be interesting to see if MGSV or UC4 can manage to fight for GOTY next year!! ^^

      One thing’s for sure. I’ll be buying both Day 1 and Collector’s Edition if available 🙂

      • Janeo

        I can’t wait for uncharted 4 one of my favourite series. I’m scared that they will make it to dark though the same guys as the last of us are directing it and the trailer makes it seem like it will be the last game. I’m happy with a dark uncharted but I hope they don’t go to dark I want sully to live.

  • Solidfox

    new screens and posible box art

    • Solidfox

        • CrazyGuy207

          Big Boss, Punished Snake, and now Venom Snake? Also, no Arsenal Gear?

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah, what happened to Punished Snake? I thought that was gonna be what he was in MGSV-TPP not Venom Snake, Also yeah, what happened to Arsenal Gear and Metal Gear ZEKE? they deserve a spot in the list too.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Punished Snake is BB when he awakens from his coma. Venom Snake awakens when the next disaster hits Diamond Dogs. The coffins being set on fire probably means another huge loss for DD.

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yeah at the end of the trailer we see Big Boss with his robotic arm and a piece of shrapnel in his head, and considering he has that wound when he wakes up from the coma, then there is a pretty big time gap between when the ground zeroes chopper crashes and when he ends up in a coma. Before Big Boss ends up in a coma he survives the ground zeroes crash and gets a robotic arm and builds Diamond Dogs, I thought Diamond Dogs came after his coma or that Kaz Built it when he was in the coma, but at the beginning and the end of the trailer he is wearing his robotic arm and his diamond dogs outfit, and at the end of the trailer is where he gets shrapnel in his head, seeing this it looks like he ends up in a coma after he gets a new arm and starts building diamond dogs.

            The timeline I had built in my head has been shattered but I’m building a new timeline, and wow, now I know why Ground Zeroes story was cut really short and abrupt, because if they took it any further then it would have given too much information about the events before his coma, I already thought ground zeroes should have been one game along with MGSV-TPP but after seeing why the story was cut so short I am really disappointed that Ground Zeroes was a separate game.

            Wow there is a lot in that trailer, like a LOT, not only did it shatter my timeline but it gives enough information to let me build a new one.

          • Romain Robin

            If you look closely, the only mission affected to Venom Snake is “Rescue Kaz Miller”.

            Maybe Snake will be named Venom Snake untill he rescue Kaz, then will be named Punished Snake during the Diamond Dogs / Outer Heaven outbreak.

        • PrinceHeir

          Where you got the pics with the evolution of Snake and Metal Gears?

          Official MGS site??

        • Romain Robin

          from the timeline, One thing come to my mind :

          Big Boss is now officially as the main character of the saga as Solid Snake :
          They both have 5 games as protagonists .
          Solid snake: MG; MG2; MGS 1 ; MGS2; MGS4
          Big Boss: MGS3; PO; PW; GZ; TPP.

          Good.

        • mikeyyytexas

          At least BB’s eye is blue again

    • Invader_skoodge

      OMFG!!! All Your Sheep Are Belong To Us. I’m taking every animal back to mother base. 😀

    • CrazyGuy207

      Maybe you turn it into rations for later?

    • Nekkedsnake

      New BOX art! FULTON! Sheep! Maybe BB can even eat anikams again XD

    • PrinceHeir

      Good stuff!

    • No Place For Hayter

      That sheep is the greatest thing I have ever seen, EVER.

  • Neph

    anyone saved the pic with the cyphers guarding Diamon Dogs Mother Base?

    • Guest

      here

      • Neph

        That’s funny, I made that one, but I ment this one, thanks anyway

        • PrinceHeir

          Really reminds me of MGS2 Big Shell ^^

          • Machine Gun Kid

            Yea thats what i was thinking also

        • Marxal

          Where did these screens come from? The interview above?

          • Neph

            On Konami’s official MGS PP page there was a bunch of new pics in the section, but they were taken down in a few mins, maybe hours, but a lot of people couldnt save them all, probably someone leaking stuff or just a Konami staff that wasnt supposed to upload them today

          • Marxal

            Ah, thank you. Was worried I’d slept through one of the gameplay demos or something xD

          • dj

            Where can we find the rest of the pictures?

          • Solidfox

            @neph you were at the /mgg/ sleepover last night?

    • Solidfox

      here.

      • mikeyyytexas

        So… Am I the only one thinking that they went back to mother base and just salvaged and built on top of the wreckage for the new diamond dogs mother base? I also think that “Outer Heaven” as we know from the original MG is actually XOF base… based on the new trailer… I’m thinking we take over it after we kill Skullface… and go into hiding… hmmmmm secret base after going back and forming FOXHOUND???????

  • ObsessedGeorge

    The trailer was mind blowing! Such emotions! Very powerful. Ladies and gettlemen, this is how to make an amazing trailer. I’m gonna leave you with this:

    Standing on the edge of the crater
    Like the prophets once said
    and the ashes are all cold now
    No more bullets and the embers are dead
    Whispers in the air tell the tales
    Of the brothers gone
    Desolation, devastation
    What a mess we made, when it all went wrong

    Watching from the edge of the circus
    For the games to begin
    Gladiators draw their swords
    form their ranks for armageddon

    I’m nuclear
    I’m wild
    I’m breaking up inside
    A heart of broken glass
    Defiled
    Deep inside
    The abandoning child

    Standing on the edge of the underworld
    Looking at the abyss
    and I’m hoping for some miracle
    To breakout to escape from all this
    Whispers in the air tell the tales
    of a life that’s gone
    Desolation, devastation
    What a mess we made, when it all went wrong

    I’m nuclear
    I’m wild
    I’m breaking up inside
    A heart of broken glass
    Defiled
    Deep inside
    The abandoning child

    I’m nuclear
    I’m wild
    I’m breaking up inside
    A heart of broken glass
    Defiled
    Deep inside
    The abandoning child

    • Romain Robin

      The only thing I can hear about the chorus of the song is:

      I’m a Unicorn
      I’m wild.

      Now the trailer is spoiled, i can’t watch it seriously 🙁

  • Romain Robin

    Something trivial, but I personally like Kojima talking about TPP development at past . “Dev has proven to be very tough”.
    Am I jumping on any hint or could that mean that the development is actually finished ? That could mean the game comes out in 2014. i can’t see any studio who would take nearly 1 year to polish a game.

    • Janeo

      I think development is very very close to completion but I think the game will come out next year, you know how kojima is I think it’s really smart they haven’t even hinted when the game will come out because they want as much time as they need to make it as smooth as possible

  • Invader_skoodge

    I know I’m grasping at straws here guys. But where is the “Coming 1984” coming from??

    just a theory -Venom is the codename skullface gave to the imposter he presented as big boss in order to kill cypher while the original big boss is still in a coma . V = Venom = V has come to = Venom awakens
