MGSV:TPP will not be playable at TGS, but there will be a stage presentation and a video (not Afghanistan)

During the SCE Japan conference a few days ago, Kojima announced that we will get more info on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain during Tokyo Game Show 2014. Now some additional details on what to expect have been revealed on Konami’s official TGS site.

Unfortunately for those who will be attending, the game will not be at the show in playable form. Instead, Konami will hold a stage presentation and there will be a video of the game.

Tokyo Game Show will be held September 18th – 21st.

Update: The demo will not be set in Afghanistan again, according to ToraShiro, a Konami rep posting on the NeoGAF boards.

          • Venom Snake

            I hope is Afrika Gameplay, and please, we have enough PS4 footage from Phantom Pain, now if is in Afrika would be the Perfect time to show some footage from the PC Version, to show the Foliage Capabilities of Fox Engine, since Afrika is mostly Jungle Environment!

    • Eric Otness

      We may get one soon. Kojima did hint at something special being presented this TGS (and considering he had been forcibly subdued by Konami executives from making too much hype thanks to his Deja Vu announcement according to ToraShiro, I’m doubtful it’s going to be overhyping a new gameplay element).

    • No Place For Hayter

      I wouldn’t mind a video of anything other than the same Rescue Kaz mission again.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    And please disable reflex mode in mgo3

    • Venom Snake

      Is disabled during the Base infiltration, so of course it won’t be in MGO3…unless they find a way to integrate it like Rockstar did with Bullet time on Max Payne 3 Multiplayer!

      • WhatTheJuicay

        but its pointless either way because we, as players are always on ALERT. So reflex mode wouldn’t work either way.

        • Venom Snake

          Max Payne 3 proved that Slow Motion could work in Multiplayer if is done right!

  • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

    will there be a trailer too or just gameplay?

    • No Place For Hayter

      My assumption, both.

      Though I expect the video to not be of regular Hideo style and not be emotion story heavy.

      • BigBoss_88

        I think we get to see both too and hope to see something cool of Silent Hills also :).

      • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

        yea my guess though its just gonna be a gameplay demo because i think we would be seeing some teaser for the trailer by now if they are already cool with sharing demo info.

  • No Place For Hayter

    “Not Afghanistan”

  • Shalashaska Has Landed..

    It might be just more Mother Base multiplayer stuff lol.

  • Tye

    I just want them to show off the features of the PC version and give us a release date then I’ll be good, lol.

    • Venom Snake

      Jungles of Afrika Gameplay on PC would be the perfect Opportunity to show the Foliage Capabilities of Fox Engine!

    • Cartmangus

      All I wanna know is if they plan on releasing TPP on PC at the same time as the console versions, I really hope that is the case.

  • Tye

    David Hayter voice conversion DLC, lmao jk

  • Cartmangus

    Yaay, new setting being shown. Man I hope the game has something like a Grozny Grad, imagine that sneaking around n shit then you run into some fucking massive base you have to infiltrate, PLEASE, I need that in my blood stream.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I have no doubt in my mind that there will be at least one awesome base to infiltrtate, even MGS3 had the huge main base and MGS3 was all about the wilderness and survival.

    • Janeo

      Not sure but I think I remember kojima saying a while ago that aswell as countries their will also be some huge bases to explore so maybe some bases are so big they have their own map.

    • decoyF0XX

      What I’m most interested in right now is knowing how the boss fights are gonna be like, Mechs? Crazy human bosses?? Or those cyborgs in the trailer??? I want to be surprised though, I can wait. 🙂

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        or rex!

  • Venom Snake

    Please tell me is PC Gameplay this time, he have enough PS4 Gameplay, plus Jungle Setting presented on PC would the the Perfect opportunity to show Fox Engine Foliage Capabilities!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Unfortunately I don’t think they will, their main target is consoles and they also like to have a solid set of specs and hardware to show off their engine and game, simply showing off the PC version will give no idea what the computer they are using is like, also showing it off on a console (like the PS4) is a great way of showing the customer what they are going to get with no exceptions, with a PC the computers people have and the max settings they can have change as well. With all that said they could easiy go into the a PC version and show of the max settings, they would just have to put a lot more effort into the presentation and video to demonstrate the PC version, I just don’t think they are willing to put the effort into presenting the PC version when it is not their main market, though it would be nice if they did and it would be a pleasant surprise.

      From what I have seen so far they could show off the foliage capabilities perfectly with the PS4 version, unless they show me some serious improvement between the PC and PS4 version I don’t think the gap will be huge enough for someone like me too care enough to buy the PC version over the PS4 version, after all they are developing it for consoles and the PC is not their primary platform, I mean the PS4 version is not as good as it could be because it is cross-gen with PS3 and XBOX360 so the PC version will also suffer due to the fact it was made for many different consoles and platforms so it will be far from what it could be if the PC was their target platform.

      • Venom Snake

        “also showing it off on a console (like the PS4) is a great way of showing the customer what they are going to get with no exceptions”

        They already did that at E3 2014 and Gamescom 2014, we Deserve some footage from the PC version, we waited 2 years, i think we deserve!

        “they could show off the foliage capabilities perfectly with the PS4 version”

        O.K. let me correct then, Fox Engine Foliage Maximum Potential on PC!

        “I just don’t think they are willing to put the effort into presenting the PC version when it is not their main market” & “between the PC and PS4 version I don’t I don’t think the gap will be huge”

        That’s exactly what worries me, that the PC Version will be held back by the New Consoles, exactly how Watch Dogs was, and that they won’t promote the PC version just to create a Reason to call us PC Gamers that don’t buy Games and pirate pirate everything.

        “I mean the PS4 version is not as good as it could be because it is cross-gen with PS3 and XBOX360”

        No, is because the PS4 is not as powerful as we tough, and if you knew how Fox Engine Works, you won’t know that the Engine is made to take advantage of any Platform the Game is on!

        “after all they are developing it for consoles and the PC is not their primary platform” & “…so it will be far from what it could be if the PC was their target platform.”

        PC is the Main Platform, that’s how Fox Engine works, Hideo said it in an Interview with Sony when talking about the Fox Engine

        • Janeo

          Come on man every comment I ever saw from you was about a PC version and you have finally got it, a lot of people didn’t think it would happen at all so shouldn’t you just be happy you’re getting it on PC and stop worrying about whether it will be held back or not. The way I see it is this game is a console game and the main focus is getting people to buy it on consoles I know you think differently but it won’t have as much sales on PC as consoles, I really don’t think they will show the game on PC but you will have GZ to test out before anyway but I would say it will be exactly the same as the console versions.

          • Venom Snake

            Just to remind you, no PC Gamer was demanding a PC version of MGSV until Hideo Kojima mentioned it at PAX 2012, until Hideo create a Demand for the PC version, so you have Kojima to blame here.

            This also means that Hideo wanted to release on PC from the very beginning, that he won’t fukked up the PC version as Ubisoft did with Watch Dogs, or to remain Japanese as Capcom did 2 days ago with the PC version of Dead Rising 3!

        • No Place For Hayter

          Agree on most points but I will point out two things.

          Even though the Fox Engine is designed to be very compatible with different platforms it still suffers from a lowest common denominator syndrome, I believe Kojima himself said that it is not as good as it could be simply because it is cross gen.

          Also every single game engine on the face of the earth is developed on PC, but most of them are designed to program games for specific platforms, just because the game engine is developing the game on PC doesn’t mean it will run the best of PC, a game engine allows people to create games for the specific platforms they want and optimize it for the platform…….actually hold on, I think I did a rant on this before, let me copy and paste an old comment of mine, don’t mind if it seems a bit rude it is not directed at anyone I’m was just simply talking about game engines with someone else
          “Every game engine on the face of this earth are made on PC, this adds no merit to how good it will be on PC, engines are made and developed on PC but you use said engine to develop for specific platforms and thus run great on said platform but run like crap on the rest, but good thing for us the FOX engine is all about being multi-platform so it will run as best it can on all fronts. But all engines are PC, this adds no merit or evidence of how well it will run on any platform, this has been a huge misunderstanding since Kojima productions started showing off the FOX engine, the moment they started talking PC suddenly everyone thought that “OMG a PC engine!?” I would assume what Kojima Productions did, that everyone already had the basic knowledge that game engines are all made and developed on PC, also games are not “ported” from game engines, games are developed through said engine for said consoles, granted the FOX engine makes this really easy but they don’t simply make a PC game at god max settings and hit an export button to each consoles that lowers that god standard by a huge amount (well for PS4 anyway, it would lose a heck of a lot for other consoles) and even if such a thing exists as the export button, when making the game you have to make it for said console to know what you can and can’t do and how to best take advantage of the resources available to you, they are not making a PC game they are making a multiplatform console game, and thus they are developing to get the best from each console not to get the best from PC, I wouldn’t expect to much of an improvement of the PC version over the PS4 version considering the PS4 is the highest quality platform that they are concerned about developing for, they are not worried about the PC version and are not specifically developing for it, and so when they are done they will put the best version they have on PC and probably unlock a bunch of options to make it look even better, but like I said I don’t expect it to be that huge of a difference. I nearly went off topic there, sorry about the game engine/development rant, lol.”

          You have seen this picture before but I will show it again, because it is Kojima himself saying cross-gen effects the game and how nice it will look.

          http://i.imgur.com/PY8q2Jt.jpg

          • Venom Snake

            Well, i’m just hoping that Hideo will make the PC version at least slightly better then the PS4 version to show an example to Companies like Ubisoft that downgrade the PC versions with no reason!

          • No Place For Hayter

            YES, I want to see that, all they have announced is that it is coming to PC, but I definitely agree, need more info and some footage of the PC version. Because a PC version allows the players to adjust their settings there is bound to be a bunch of things people can turn higher or adjust to make it look and play better, all I want is to see what and if we can adjust and how much.

          • Venom Snake

            True, an Updated version of the Ground Zeroes comparison won’t be enough, we need a Trailer From Nvidia explaining how to optimize the MGSV Graphics for your Rig, and to show the differences between various settings like Low vs Medium vs High vs Ultra, also i would love MGSV Graphics Settings to have a metetr showing you how much are you using from the Video Card, like you can see in GTA IV and Max Payne 3, where you see Your Video Card Memory and how much the current setting are using from it

            Anyway all i want from the PC version are these features

            Obligatory Features

            -Well Optimized
            -Fully Customizable Controls (Including Full Mouse and Keyboard Support, Hotkeys for Items, Weapons, On/Off Silencer/Flashlight etc. )
            -Fully Mouse support for Menus (including the In Game i Droid and the Weapon Wheel)
            -NO Auto-Apply Graphics like MGR and Dead Rising 3 on PC
            -NO Mouse Acceleration
            -NO Auto Aim
            -NO Frame Rate Lock

            Optional, but necessary for a PC Game!

            -4K Textures
            -PhysX (Nvidia Tool for Advanced Physics including Denser Particles, Advanced Wind/Rain aka Weather Effects, Enhanced Body&Objects Physics)
            -TressFX (why not?)
            -Anti-aliasing
            -Tessellation
            -Improved Draw Distance
            -Improved Lighting
            -Steam Workshop

          • Alberto Sánchez

            Yeah, keep dreaming; it’s free.

          • Venom Snake

            Is a Demo, it should be, especially after 9 months!

          • MrVux007

            I thought we were all ready had this discussion you and I ….and we both agreed in the end that FOX engine is not using up ps4 full capabilities….both pc and ps4 are being “slowed down” by the last gen consoles ps3/XBOX360 because its cross gen …the graphics will be on par for both pc and ps4,Kojima said it himself that ps4may look a litlle behind to some current gen ONLY games because it was made for ps3/xbox360 ….saying things that ps4 is poorly built or that it’s causing pc version look poor makes you sound like a fanboy of pc (even tho u might own a console,no offense intended)

          • Venom Snake

            Agree, and i own a Console, a broken PS2, the tool that made me fall in love with MGS3 and San Andreas!

          • MrVux007

            Lol that pic was the same one I used during the discussion with Venom Snake ….but thank you for pointing out those things

          • No Place For Hayter

            Lol, yep, that is where I got it. 🙂

  • Get Agrippa

    I hope the ‘not Afghanistan’ footage isn’t the hospital scene. Then again, I’d be cool with them using it to show off the story.

    • Cartmangus

      Yeah I don’t want wanna know anything more than I do about the hospital sequence, it looks like a fucking great start to the game and I’d rather not have all of it spoiled.

      • No Place For Hayter

        lets all take a brief moment to…… HYPE!!!!!

      • BigBoss_88

        You couldn’t have said that better :). I hope it’s not about hospital either, because it might get spoiled and it indeed is such intense and cool start to the game!

    • Zlatan

      i don’t know if i really want to see a demo of a different place then afghanistan. why? i like not to see too much. i wanna discover it all when i got the game by myself. what i need is a release date mr. kojima, nothing else.

      • BigBoss_88

        I kind of agree, they have shown us so many trailers already and gameplay demos. So in a way I would just like to wait for the game and see the rest of the game myself. But I know I can’t ignore this TGS presentation and see what they have in store for us >.<… RD is the most important info we need.

  • PrinceHeir

    TGS HYPE Let’s go!!

  • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    diamond mine side story without spoilers and African jungle + Kalahari goodie.
    UPDATE:SILENT HILLS WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE EXCELLENCE AWARDS ACCORDING TO KOJIMA
    but it may be before or ………………..after.

    • Venom Snake

      Can’t wait for a Trailer showing the Platforms, because with that expensive Cast you can’t go Platform Exclusive, you need to sell as much as possible on Multiple Platforms in order for Silent Hill to have Profit!

  • MrVux007

    AFRICA HERE WE COME!~

    • Venom Snake

      “Waka-Waka-E-e-eee”

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        saminamina sankarewa its time for Africa.
        if its not Africa wtf unless Iraq or not.

        • Venom Snake

          As long as is PC footage it can even be Camp Omega, i won’t mind!

  • Ricardo Oe

    good news…
    awesome…

  • BigBoss_88

    Worst possible scenario would be if the game release so late like in 2016 o_O… Lol the wait would really kill me. I remember reading last year, something about late 2015 or 2016 release date being possible, depending on how the developing progress and how well PS4 sell.

    But as they are already showing Silent Hills etc, I guess RD should come pretty soon and we have gotten different hints about it. Fingers crossed for TGS ^_^.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Think about this, Kojima announces the release date for MGSV also mentioning that the work for it is nearly done. And the same day at the Silent Hills conference Kojima shows up to talk about his involvement with it because most of his work is done with MGSV and he is now moving unto Silent Hills with Del Toro.

      Hey, I can live in dream land can’t I? it does sound possible though, doesn’t it?

      • BigBoss_88

        Yes it does sound possible 🙂 and imagining that moment in my mind mmmmm… dreams do come true ;D! Some people still seem to think it is releasing in late 2015, but lol that is just no way happening.
        ;O time to get some zzzzzz.

        • Venom Snake

          Possible: Anything is possible
          Probable: Not at all, Hideo would not start working on anther Game if Phantom Pain was not close to Finish, he never worked on 2 Games at once!

          Also having different Actors still recording doesn’t mean the Game is not finished, they could simply record for a DLC!

          • BigBoss_88

            Yeah 2 games at once would be too much of work even for the godlike Kojima :D.

          • Venom Snake

            I like to consider Kojima like Tarantino, a Game Make not a Game Developer, someone that’s work is Quality over Quantity!

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    Let’s if it isn’t a flop like Gamescom’s presentation. Hope that we’ll get some MGO, Co-Op and a release date.

    • WhatTheJuicay

      Lol this is all I ask for.. I hope for it every time theres a huge event.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        You want Co-Op too? I rarely see anyone asking for it.

        • WhatTheJuicay

          CO op was the first thing I thought of when I heard it would be Open World.. I was half expecting MGO3 to be open world much like RDR. Openworld/ game lobbies to choose from. I’d much prefer the organized lobby of MGO though.

  • Venom Snake

    Question:

    Why is Ground Zeroes listed as a Game that will be presented at TGS 2014, isn’t Ground Zeroes already out, or is it because they’ll show some footage from the PC/Steam Version?

    I just can’t find any reason Ground Zeroes would be up at TGS this year, if you have a better guess, comment bellow!

    • BigBoss_88

      It’s listed for TGS? I haven’t really checked what games are shown as I mostly care for TPP and SH :D, but who knows why. Maybe they show some PC footage etc, not sure. Otherwise it’s pretty strange to bring up a game there which released 6 months ago already.

      By the way, I hope we see more of FFXV too in TGS :3.

      • It seems Kojima Productions is running some kind of competition where people can send in gameplay clips. So maybe that’s what it is.

      • Venom Snake

        If there won’t be PC footage, maybe is the DLC that Konami said “Claim your Downloadable Content for Ground Zeroes early 2015”

        What would that DLC be? I bet is a VR Training Map Pack for Ground Zeroes to raise his value, to make it wort the 30$

        I do hope is the PC version being shown, he is hoping for a 4K Confirmation!

        • Cobra

          From memory, I’m pretty sure that the DLC coupons that came with the first print of copies of GZ were labelled that they would just unlock a unique Mother Base staff member in TPP. I doubt it’d be anything dramatic to “increase the value” of GZ so to speak, since it was already a financial success as it was (With even more sales to come closer to TPP, no doubt).

          • Venom Snake

            Maybe you get to keep Hideo from Ground Zeroes to The Phantom Pain if you played Ground Zeroes first.

          • Cobra

            Yeah, wouldn’t be surprising, especially since he was recruitable in Peace Walker. I’m all but certain I remember reading that a completed GZ save file would carry over certain rescued prisoners into TPP; so presumably since the side-missions didn’t have any bearing on the main plot, maybe Glaz and Palitz will come back, as will the intel-agent in the anti-air emplacement mission who talks about the proto-Patriots attempting to establish a HUMINT network of sorts (Signs that SIGINT/Donald Anderson might make a substantial appearance in TPP?).

          • Venom Snake

            That would be cool, and if in Phantom Pain you could like in Peace Walker do Side mission as your Soldiers, and if the Coop is back, then i would love to play some mission with a Buddy as Glaz and Palitz.

            Also in Coop i would get Hideo and Venom Snake doing a Bro Fist!

  • im a dot

    I can wait for it to release, hack ill wait 6 months if necessary, but I cant wait to know how long im waiting for it

    • Venom Snake

      I feel the same when talking about BVS as well!

  • Venom Snake

    Am i the only one disappointed that Ground Zeroes as short as it was it didn’t had a VR Map, a Map that would occupy a Max of 500 MB?

  • BigBoss_88

    “On Saturday and Sunday at TGS, during both the public days, we’ll have the “MGS5 Stage” with a team of celebrity guests.”
    What do you my fellow diamond doggies think these “celebrities” consist of? Probably voice actors or…

    • Venom Snake

      I’ll just trow this here.

      Nicki Minaj playing a Boss in Phantom Pain named Anaconda

      Just kidding, i think is about Norman Reedus and Kiefer Sutherland

      • BigBoss_88

        Yeah could be them, I mean not Nicki lol but the others :).

        • Venom Snake

          Heh, yeah

          Anyway, with a Boss like “Quiet” Nicki playing a Boss named “The Anaconda” would not be as out of place as it seems, i mean she would be like a Combination between “The Fear” and “Coperhead” and “Poison Ivy” from DC, it would be an interesting Character to find in the Jungles of Afrika

          The point is, that a Boss named Anaconda should be in the Jungles of Afrika of Phantom Pain, not necessarily played by Nicki, but it would be a New type of Boss.

  • Omid Darakeh

    Every day is like a year ago … Fak !!! TGS 🙁

  • Hanna-Mari H

    I hope release date will be at January 2015, when PS4 is on sale.
