New MGSV: TPP info – buddy system, protheses, and you may never meet Quiet

The gameplay demo for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain shown during TGS has revealed some new information. Here are the translations of the most important bits, and gameplay elements.

  • Kojima can finally do the things he wanted to, now that the hardware has evolved
  • Snake has lost weight, they say
  • You can choose your own routes during the missions
  • Quiet can assist you during gameplay with the buddy system
  • You can choose where the helicopter sets you down
  • Riding your horse is hard in the jungle environment
  • Snake is ‘naked’, Miller tells him they are making a new suit at Mother Base
  • The new suit is delivered to Snake
  • You can climb walls with cracks
  • The climbing section seen in the demo is a shortcut, you can also go around through the jungle
  • Snake is wearing a different arm prothesis in the demo
  • You’ll be able to use different protheses with different functions
  • There will be a lot of different protheses according to Kojima
  • You can set up a talking decoy. He has a lot of lines, including ‘Kept you waiting, huh?’ and ‘You’re pretty good!’
  • Snake calls in Quiet and orders her to scout up ahead
  • Quiet can also provide cover fire
  • When she is in position, she hums
  • She marks enemies during reconnaissance
  • If you speed up the time too much, the POW target dies
  • By hovering the reticle, you can select Quiet’s target
  • Snake throws a grenade and orders Quiet to shoot it
  • Quiet has a weakness that will tie into the story, and also into the way she is dressed
  • Quiet’s abilities depend on the degree of her bond with Snake
  • In the demo, the attacks commands were: shoot, target and wait for my signal, shoot this, and provide/cease cover fire
  • However, a lot has to happen for all these options to be available (bond degree)
  • If the bond isn’t high enough, Quiet won’t come with you
  • When Snake uses the ‘pin radar’, all the icons represent animals, but it reacts to people as well
  • You can analyze soldiers to see their statistics, like in Peace Walker
  • The binoculars can be upgraded by through R&D
  • Another interrogation option is asking: ‘Where are your friends?’
  • Snake’s can stun enemies with his arm, it packs 1.2 million volts
  • According to Kojima, you may never meet Quiet. It depends on how you play through the game.
  • Snake can also jump out of the chopper while it’s in the air… but it would kill him

    My experience during The Phantom Pain’s demo / trailer….

    • KamenRiderGekko

      This made me laugh really hard!

    • ObsessedGeorge

      I take it he is looking at some divas stripping, am l right? I don’t remember this episode…

    • Schmojima

      this is so good!! xDD

    • Andy Lunique

      This had me laughing way too hard lmao

  • gerber

    I wonder if coop friend can join as a buddy, that would be amazing. I loved the idea of coop in pw, but the ultra small locations and blind guards made the coop useless

    • Venom Snake

      That’s what i was asking myself from the moment i saw quiet Landing!

    • Fredy Carius

      so much wasted potential in co-op sneaking missions in PW

      • xShonuffx

        Well its like what Kojima said, he couldn’t do the things he wanted to in past MG games like he can do now. So Kojima would have no excuse to not allow co-op missions in this game. The world is big enough for it.

  • flying_fox

    Regarding the location of that jungle setting… I looked for the word “Lufwa” (seen on the map), it seems to be kikongo language… A language spoken in Congo and Angola (more precisely the province of Cabinda). My bet has been on Cabinda since last year, so I’m very curious what it will turn out to be.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    The first thing I noticed was that BB was thinner. And then I was, “wait, could it be that the suits he wore made him more muscular?”

    • Venom Snake

      But he still looks a bit more muscular compared to the Intro of Phantom Pain aka Hospital Scene.

      So looks like Snake Body will transform as well trough out the Campaign!

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Yup, I figured it has to be some time after the Hospital scene. The way his body is in the demo suggests that we will see him build it through out the story.

        • Venom Snake

          Heh, the first thing that came in to my mind when you said ” we will see him build it through out the story.” was GTA San Andreas Gym Minigame, i would laugh so much if that exact Feature is in Phantom Pain!

          • A gym in Mother Base? I wouldn’t put it past Kojima.

          • Venom Snake

            You know what’s funny, i won’t mind it, now that i think about it i actually want it.

            EDIT: To see how crazy i am i would love is the Mother Base would have a Mini Footbal (Soccer) Stadium in which you can play with and against your DD Soldiers and have Ocelot in the Rival team with part of DD…basically PES 15 gameplay Mechanics as a Minigame, and from what i have see in Real Life European Soldiers play Footbal at their Base!

          • KamenRiderGekko

            That would be awesome!

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Man that would break the chains in the video gaming industry if that happened! You got some wonderful ideas Venom. 🙂

          • Venom Snake

            Well, there is a Reason i my Nickname is Venom Snake, and is because…i was the first to get The Name on Disqus, soooo lucky me, i guess!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            han solo style
            WAAAAHOOU!

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          • Big_Boss88

            We need this :D, also gym idea is nice!

    • Toni Ymeri

      After waking up from a coma the body is very weak and physiotherapy is really necessary. After that he probably went somewhere else to do some p.t (get it lol), to regain muscle tone and prepare for missions.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Damn, your avatar… I must say…
        The only me is me… Are you sure the only you is you?

        • Big_Boss88

          Lol ;D, best comment of the day.

        • Toni Ymeri

          Double us theory confirmed!

      • Hanna-Mari H

        I did just remember beginning of kill bill one where kiddo wakes up from 4 year coma. How about 9 year?

        • Toni Ymeri

          And after 9 years of coma, as soon as he wakes up, he has to escape from XOF assaulting the hospital. That’s some really intense shit for someone to do after waking up from a coma. I think that he woke up a few days before the assault so he had some time to recover. (Haven’t seen Kill Bill yet :P)

  • Nikola Butch Jandric

    SPEECHLESS

  • Venom Snake

    Something that i notice…about Homage, isn’t just the “Naked Suit” a Snake Eater Homage, but also the way Quiet came to The Island and how she landed and the Parachute Model!
    http://youtu.be/7-2stNnFnrM

  • This reminds me a lot of Snake Eater, which is -obviously- a great thing.

  • Jason Fairchild

    Sooo… there’s a new metal gear in the underground hangar… can I call it in as a buddy? Can someone co-op into my game in their metal gear?

  • Janeo

    Are we sure the translation is completely right I mean quiet seems to important to be optional. Could it be they meant you may play the game fir a long time before finding her since you can complete missions in any order you want.

    • Korvus

      Nah, he said most characters in The Phantom Pain can even be killable, so I’m sure if you don’t find her, she won’t be a story element. If you do something to anger her before the event where she saves Big Boss, you’ll probably make an enemy of her. (like in the scene from E3 2014) I’m also gonna go out on a limb and say Quiet is not the only Support Buddy. Perhaps Mantis is too, and maybe Liquid.

      • decoyF0XX

        Kojima is really putting in that work!! This game is turning out to be the greatest of all time

      • Big_Boss88

        I’d love to team up with Ocelot in some mission :D.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        I think they should work on this buddy system while they still have time. For instance, when quiet has her sights on someone, and he spots you (like at the 9:54 mark in the gameplay video), she should take him out automatically and it overrides reflex. I think its pretty stupid she just watches the guy spot you and does nothing.

      • Hanna-Mari H

        BB “lets do this, son. For Outer Heaven!”
        Liquid “….”

  • Big_Boss88

    Goddamit so much epicness, I can already imagine playing game 1000000 hours on first playthrough. Awesome!

  • Big_Boss88

    A bit off-topic, but check this out:

    Good work Kojima, I already shit my pants

    • Janeo

      Is it just me or did that head kind of look like chico although I just woke up so maybe my vision is kind of off. Do we know if kojima is directing this game yet.

      • Big_Boss88

        Lol it looks like Chico a little 😉 …I guess now we know where Chico disappeared to in MGSV, after GZ he fell into a maelstrom in the ocean and got pulled through it into other dimension. Where he ends up in a town called Silent Hills :O!

        • John

          chico is in the phantom pain, he is quiet.

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            omg shut up

  • Datguy8923

    Game of the Century.

  • Biggu Bosu

    Honestly I wonder how big this game is really gonna be, don’t think Kojima was joking when he said some might not finish this. It just seems so vast and so much stuff to do :D…which is amazing of course.
    I’m the kind of player, who likes to do and try every single thing possible in a new game when playing first time, so I’m a little worried lol xD .

    But I hope I make it to the end after a few weeks or months maybe.

    • WhatTheJuicay

      im worried too.. it took me 5 years to finish GTA4

      • Hanna-Mari H

        I’ve played FFX like over ten years. I don’t want to finish it haha 😀

        • Big_Boss88

          I played it few months ago again after my PS2 days and for some reason I didn’t finish it this time. Which is weird because FF is one of my favorite series. I loved it years ago, but now some of the characters were really annoying lol. Like Yuna >.<…dunno why, but saw the game a bit differently this time.

          • Hanna-Mari H

            Rikku + whole FFX2 -.- I bought HD version because Auron 😀 He’s goddamn reason why I play that game haha, but my childhood ends if I finish it 🙁 Nevah! But let’s talk about mgs, this is not ff informer 😉

          • WhatTheJuicay

            We are still talking about MGS.. just pertaining to the way we obsessively-compulsively play games.

        • WhatTheJuicay

          lol speaking of RPGs, i still haven’t finished Fallout 3 GOTY (mainly the DLCs) and FONV GOTY. I got Fallout 3 on launch.. both times. I play it seasonally though.. mostly starting november.

  • im a dot

    TPP feels more like the best thing ever that ill never see, it feels like ill wait for ever with no realese date

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    Am I the only one who thinks that Sanke’s climbing is really weird?

    • WhatTheJuicay

      yes

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Seriously? I mean look at it, it looks like Big Boss is getting a seizure =/ …

        • WhatTheJuicay

          I see absolutely nothing wrong with it. I also found this article yesterday http://www.kotaku.com.au/2014/09/why-snake-is-the-best-climber-in-video-game-history/

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            The article is good and all but my problem with is the sheer fact the he’s getting grip in a vertical crack. I mean, I’m no climber, I’ve never climbed a minute of my life but it somehow seems less believable to me than what Ezio does (like the article mentions).

            This is probably just me not knowing what climbing is. I found this article (http://opp.uoregon.edu/climbing/topics/cracks.html) and apparently vertical crack climbing is perfectly achievable with the correct technique.

  • CrazyGuy207

    I like how it holds 1.2 million volts as compared to Volgins… How many?

    • ‘Ten million volts.’

      • CrazyGuy207

        Oh, I thought it was 1.1 million or something. I guessed Snake said “Make my arm .1 million more because there’s this one asshole I knew…” but I guess that’s not the case.

        • mikeyyytexas

          I literally laughed my ass off!!! I can imagine him explaining it to the DD scientists that way.

        • Schmojima

          HAHAHAHA, made my day!! xD

    • xShonuffx

      Unleashing 1.2 million volts is different from holding where Volgen could basically unleash all of it on one poor sap and kill them. The voltage in his stun arm is just enough to knock them unconscious. Also a fun fact. The Stun Rod has 1.5 million volts. Of course any sustained shock of any high level will kill someone, the power just depends on how fast.

  • WhatTheJuicay

    First “Prothesis” then misspelled as “Protheses”… I understood what whoever was trying to say but that is absolutely the wrong word. It should be Prosthetic (Plural: Prosthetics).. I had to actually look up the word Prothesis: proth·e·sis
    ˈpräTHəsəs/
    noun
    1.
    CHRISTIAN CHURCH
    (especially in the Orthodox Church) the action of placing the Eucharistic elements on the credence table.

    2.
    another term for prosthesis (sense 2).

    • The second definition is correct, isn’t it? And -es would be plural.

  • PrinceHeir

    Gonna be the best MGS game for sure!

    • Big_Boss88

      There’s no doubt about that! <3
      Btw that new FF15 trailer was great, was good to see something new of it :D. I hope can play it with Japanese seiyuu!

      • PrinceHeir

        They’ll definitely put JPN audio even if it’s DLC like they did with Lightning Returns FFXIII.

  • CrazyGuy207

    Speaking of arms, if BB has multiple ones, why doesn’t Kaz get one?

    • WhatTheJuicay

      Kaz is the red headed step-child of Diamond Dogs.

      • Kenneth Hale

        Omg sooo true

  • Kaliospectre

    Story could be different for everyone eh? I wonder what happens if you don’t meet Quiet, would she appear later on in the story as an enemy? A Boss Fight? A Sniper Battle?

  • Vesky Hippo Pelvis

    If I get to employ “Kojima-san of Diamond Dogs” onto the field of operations, I’d be so done–with my societal involvement, that is. C;

  • This is very good news. If I can complete the whole game without meeting Quiet I’ll be awarding a much higher ranking for the game. It would be nice if we received a Japanese voice option too, but I doubt it will happen. You never know though.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    According to Kojima, you may never meet Quiet. It depends on how you play through the game.
    But I want to meet Quiet. Someone gotta play this before me and give us the inside scoop how to find her because I won’t play a second time just to find her.

  • Robert Gittings

    “Quiet has a weakness that will tie into the story, and also into the way she is dressed.”

    A weakness huh? Well what do we know about her so far?

    1. We know she can’t speak (deprived of her words)
    2. She’s a skilled sniper
    3. She dresses very provocative not like a normal soldier which does seem strange
    4. She can supernaturally jump higher and runs faster than a normal human
    5. Her feet have had cybernetic enhancements rather like the enhancements made to the Cyborg Ninja and Raiden
    6. She has strange camouflage ability similar to The End and the stealth suit, only detectable by infrared goggles because of body heat.
    7. We know Big Boss interrogates and tortures her which seems strange considering she can’t speak but she could certainly write stuff down I guess.
    8. She can be an ally.
    9. She is also an enemy either at the beginning or throughout the game.

    What weakness could she have and why would it affect the way she is dressed besides the Quiet is Chico Theory? Did someone cut her tongue out through torture means perhaps? Perhaps she lost someone or something bad happened to her, perhaps she was raped similar to Paz?

    Yeah yeah, I know the Quiet = Chico theory was supposedly debunked because of the actress playing Quiet said that that “Quiet is definitely a female, while Chico is a male”.. I just wished she flat out said, Quiet is not Chico! What she originally said seems that it can be interpreted as not a flat out denial because last I checked a transgender female would still call herself a female because that’s the sex she was turned into after being born male and visa versa thus Quiet is female.

    The more I hear Kojima and crew defend the character Quiet, the more this theory seems plausible.

    Metal Gear Solid V can’t come soon enough I love Kojima’s madness.. this game promises to be dark, tread on a lot of taboos and the game play looks so awesome. 2015 can’t come soon enough!
