MGSV to be shown at Igromir 2014 gaming event, featuring ‘stunning footage’ and ‘specific announcements’

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.”

          TIME PARADOX

    • cardboardbox engineer

      since it is stated that their announcement is for local fans , i can only assume that they’re talking about russian subtitle

  • Daburcor

    Mr. Kojima,
    My body and I are SO ready.

  • Prepare for more damned fiddles to be played in Russian.

    • jokester178

  • Tabby Hussain

    new location!? Outer Haven??? Zanzibarland??

    • thasolidjake

      Mother base becomes Outer Haven……. Zanzibarland wasen’t built until after Outer Haven

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    Igromir sounds like a Middle Earth character.

    • The[]doR

      Igromir (rus. Игромир) means GameWorld in translation.

    • jokester178

      Yeah i know right

    • jokester178

      correct i think he does too.

  • ThreeMadFrogs

    Not sure if I want KP to reveal too much. But on the other hand I’m hungry for any tidbit of info about this game.

  • Venom Snake

    New Announcements? Please give us the Ground Zeroes PC Release date already!

  • Homer J Simpson

    A simple release date. As he has stated they are wrapping up development.

    So give us a freaking release date.

  • Golgari

    I will be there. Kojima, make sure to be there. I will make a ton of selfies with you. xD

  • Batzi

    Maybe a Russian themed sneaking suit?

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Maybe you can recruit Putin!

          Do you happen to know the source of this picture?

          • Romain Robin

            I don’t, It’s just my Desktop wallpaper since it appeared on my twitter timeline during TGS 🙂

          • Miłek Ja

            I made it. I’m sorry about that ;p

          • Pliskin

            Late reply, but, do you have any page (Deviantart, Facebook, Tumblr, Name, etc.) that I can credit you with and proof that you created this?

          • Miłek Ja

            Hi Pliskin,

            You can find my dA gallery page here:


            although you won’t find this atrocity there.

            I can’t really prove I created this apart from the fact that my comment in this thread

            Tokyo Game Show concludes with new Shinkawa character art and info

            on metalgearinformer is the second place I uploaded the image (after uploading it on my fb page) so it should be the first instance it appears on the internet. Honestly though, since it’s just a silly joke that took a few minutes to bash together in Photoshop, if no one believes me I think I can live with that 😉

            Good to know people ask about sources though, most think an image on the internet sprouts out of nowhere without any effort on anybody’s part (even if it is true of this particular image :D)

          • Pliskin

            Could you upload the picture on your DeviantArt as well? So when people go to the source, they can see the picture there as well.

          • Miłek Ja

            Hi Pliskin,

            Done it. I had to polish it up a bit but it’s up now


          • Pliskin

            Awesome, thanks!

  • BlackLesnar

    I’m willing to bet they won’t show any footage of Afghanistan with Russian soldiers getting killed by Big Boss.

    • jokester178

      I have to agree with you on these i bet they won’t…

  • new location? mhhh i doubt that, i think they’re probably thinking of the jungle as something new even though it has been revealed… in anyway at this point we have seen so much that i wouldn’t mind at all not seeing anything else till release, in fact i would prefer things to be that way

    • Venom Snake

      Or maybe is a Cold Location.

  • crimsonfox

    Don’t play with me like this lawd jeezus

  • Maik O’Bannon

    Well Kojima says one of the themes of GZ and TPP is torture.
    we can expect serious tragedies if he tortures the charachters in the script like he’s torturing us..
    I can’t wait to play this game.
    And get revenge!!!


    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      let me suffer now

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      IM ALIVE!

  • MrVux007

    So we have desert,jungle environments….we will either see Russian like tundra/snow environments(explains the sneaking suit appearance) or some random urban environment

    • Mack Ayash

      Na man its the same location as TGS.

      • MrVux007

        proof? they said they will show the new location even tho they showed the old screenshots……

  • RoderickThe13

    It’s probably Africa, though maybe we will get to see a new area.So far the confirmed locations are Afghanistan, the hospital that we’ve seen in the trailers wherever that is, Camp Omega and Africa. I don’t think we’ll get a new big location, although I would love to see a place with snow. Still, I’m not complaining, specially if those areas are gonna be as big as Kojima said.

  • JHuang


    • ObsessedGeorge

      I know… Kept us waiting long. Either way one of these months we’re gonna learn the release date, but time. Tsk… When the time comes, they’ll let you know.

      • gerber


  • moto hellogoto

    I would like to see a modern environment like inside of a high tech building.

  • Lots of stuff happened in late 2006 cumninating in the censorship of MPO’s and MGS4’s soundtracks (be thankful that the PSP digital graphic novel was released weeks before the ban took place)

    so Might KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS and Igromania game magazine will amend their past? (one of the editors in the got harassed because fans blamed him for all the situation)

    will the fox be free in the middle of the snowstrom?


    • crimsonfox

      I still can’t believe this editor did this shit. Putting Kojima on blast like that was a total dick move.

      • Golgari

        This editor is actually a big Hideo Kojima fan and Metal Gear is the reason why he joined this industry. http://www.alogvinov.dom – it is his blog.

        He did not wanted to fuck Kojima or anything. He just wanted to show that this song is just too close to the main Metal gear theme. After that Konami started to think about copyrights issues. It’s a big thing that could potentially harm Konami in the end because that composer is very popular in Russian territories.

        Also they are good friends. This is a photo after MGSV presentation at E3 2014.×449.jpg

        • crimsonfox

          I get it I guess. I just don’t like the way he did it. It could have been more private even though it would tough to tip toe around why the theme changed. I loved that theme too 🙁

          • they still used the “Raiden and rose theme” on MGS4 which is a modified version of the MGS theme that avoids the copyright (they used it briefly on MPO on the revelations track) they could made a “new” theme but they made the MPW one where they just repeat the 1st 3 notes all the time…

  • Yaro

    hmmmmm….. please local fans??? Is Russia one of the locations??!

  • James Raskalov

    I live nearby. I can’t wait. Unfortunately, I can’t attend, but I’m keeping my eye on this!

  • PrinceHeir


  • James Raskalov

    I live nearby. I can’t attend, but I’ll be keeping my eye on this!

  • SamOp

    WOW!New footage??Wha?Every month we get more footage! 😀 I hope they don’t spoil too many surprises though!

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    More announcements? I’d figure the only thing left to announce by now would be the full release date.
    My fingers are crossed for Co-Op though.

  • Invader_skoodge

    KONAMI is also planning a series of Igromir-specific announcements regarding the series, which are certain to delight local fans of the series.

    ‘LOCAL FANS” This leads me to believe it’s going to be some “Pre-Order here to get a $5 Discount when you buy MGS5” I’m tired of your shit Kojima. Release Date or GTFO. What’s next Metal Gear Fragrance collection? Nah, just kidding. I wov U! (>.<)

  • Big_Boss88

    Damn, if I had known this earlier I might go there but got plans lol.
    Kojima-san you know what we want announced the most, give it to us now 😉 …

  • jokester178

    does anybody know in ku fu panda 2 if the wolf boss died?

  • jokester178

    What do you guys think of call of duty advanced warfare…
