Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be showcased at Igromir 2014, Russia’s largest video game event. It will take place in Moscow from October 2nd until October 5th, and will be attended by more than 150,000 guests. Here is a excerpt from the official press release:
METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be represented by a themed display that recreates a military installation as seen in the game. Within this is a 50-seater cinema area where visitors will be greeted by a specially-filmed presentation that features stunning footage from the game, showing updated content and a new location. KONAMI is also planning a series of Igromir-specific announcements regarding the series, which are certain to delight local fans of the series.
It remains to be seen how different the presentation will be from what was shown at TGS, but since Konami is promising ‘Igomir-specific’ announcements, there should be at least something new. For the full press release, follow the link in the source section below.
Update: When asked about the event, Konami representative ToraShiro posted the following comment on the NeoGAF boards: “I haven’t been told of any live stream. Russia falls under Europe’s purview (thus the Konami UK blog post), so I’m more running backup support on this. New screens coming, though.”
