New Metal Gear Online info: player numbers, maps, dynamic weather

In an interview with MGO’s creative director Kotaro Oki, some new bits of information regarding the game have been revealed.

  •  It seems still unclear if MGO will launch on the same day as MGSV: TPP, but they’re considering a simultaneous launch.
  •  The number of players is still to be decided, they are looking for the number that offers the most fun, somewhere between 12 and 16. With too much players, the feeling of teamwork would be lost.
  •  As announced earlier, preset radio messages will return as a means of communications.
  •  The SOP system is replaced by MGSV’s marking system. When you mark an enemy player, the information is shared with the rest of your team. This information is one of the keys to victory.
  •  To keep the game fast paced, matches take place in self-contained maps with various climates and types of terrain, not in an open world.
  •  There will be dynamic weather as well, like in the story mode, and this will have an effect on the gameplay. Because matches don’t last very long, there will be no dynamic time, but players are able to select a time of day instead.
  •  There will be game modes with various rules, from common to unique. As announced earlier, Team Sneaking will make a return, which equips the attacking team with non-lethal weapons and stealth camo and the defending team with lethal weapons.
  •  They plan to include the selfie-feature in the game.
  •  There will be ways in which an inexperienced player can assist more experienced teammates, for example, by marking enemies with the binoculars.
  •  The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Online will affect each other in regards to some elements, but those elements having to do with game balance are kept separate, so players aren’t forced to go through TPP in order to be good in MGO.

  • XIFF-5

    NICE!

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Im thinking 16 player max but with the option to set the matches to multiples of 2,4,6,8 players etc, or however many players the host wants but with the max at 16. Im hopeing that they just take and keep everything that made mgo2 great and just improve upon it with ah different twist phantom pain fox engine style lol. Seems like thats what they are doing. Cant wait to play this next year

    • WhatTheJuicay

      yea they shouldnt overthink these things.. just take notes from MGO2 and improve from there. I dont mind 16player matches, but I do tend to underachieve in a game so big. Actually there is minimal teamwork in 16player matches. Especially when its TDM. 16player SNE is great. I wonder if that will be coming back.

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      I’m thinking a 6 player team will be hard enough to coordinate online, let alone 8.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I wonder what a 1 vs 8 would be like. 8 human players patrolling a base while the single player has to reach a target either without dying or a EE mode where just getting spotted ends the game. The matches would have to have quick loading times for this idea I suppose since there’s a chance of getting spotted almost instantly.

      What I want is a map the size of Ground Zeroes and a multiplayer The End style sniper battle, just 1v1.

    • crimson_shadow3

      I agree with you there mgo2 was the best online multiplayer game I ever played. I hope they bring back some classic maps or all the maps from mgo2 like grozni grad, (sorry if I misspelled that) silo sunset ect. Tsne Def coming back guys so no worries, also anyone think stun knife will make a return? Finally guys I would like to say don’t stress over a release date, after all better to have them perfect the game and wait then to rush them and have mistakes in the game. Also when TPP comes out we should all get together in multiplayer and make a team or clan if that comes back, I don’t have a ps4 yet but if u want 2 add me let me know.

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Yea no doubt crimson. I was just thinking that same thing. We should all get together in multiplayer for sure

  • PrinceHeir

    “The SOP system is replaced by MGSV; making system.” Marking System right?

    I really hope you can choose which weather to start a map. I really want a snow level where you can hide under the snow for cover and sneaking.

    I don’t mind them delaying the MGO part. It would actually be good since people can finish and master MGSV’s system and can jump in MGO with no problems.

    Not to mention, too many people will just play online and not bother the single player, since they’ll just keep boosting to the top.

    • Shalashaska

      Not touching multiplayer till im done with TPP’s main story and every side mission like 5 times 🙂
      but still i cant touch it even if i wanted to xD Bad internet connections :/

      • vic boss

        What’s the speed of your internet?

      • Edward Wokhands

        Are you on dial up? (Not being mean, just curious)

    • Yes, that was a typo.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I’m pretty sure it will come later, just like GTA Online after GTA V!

  • Shalashaska

    -Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Online will affect each other in regards to some elements, but those elements having to do with game balance are kept separate, so players aren’t forced to go through TPP in order to be good in MGO.

    THIS. Thankyou. I unfortunately cant play MGO because of low speed internet connection so i’m glad to hear that i dont need to go online just to get something in TPP

    will be getting this for x360, I hate when some cool things are limited to be used only in multiplayer when it could easily be used in Splayer too :/

    • WhatTheJuicay

      Just going by MGS4.. THe single player had more content than Online. Not counting the Reward store from Online. THey could have added so many more weapons and gadgets to MGO.

  • gerber

    It keeps blowing my mind how awesome this game will be. Single player alone will devour a huge portion of my life. Infiltrating friend’s motherbase? MGO? It’s like the only thing that could make this game even bigger is some kind of map creator.

    Btw, I will be really dissapointed, if the game won’t feature CO-OP like Peace Walker. In PW the idea was great, just the levels were so small to utilize the amazing potential CO-OP in MGS has. It’s strange there is still no info about the CO-OP…

    • I don’t think co-op is going to happen, TPP will be singleplayer only and for multiplayer you’ll have to go to MGO.

      • gerber

        Too bad. It’s not much programming, I wish they added CO-OP at least to side ops 🙁

        • Dizz

          I also wish this. Cmon Konami, you got a few days left til Xmas!

      • Fredy Carius

        Please be wrong, please be wrong, please be wrong

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      I absolutely agree, I really loved Peace Walker’s Co-Op mode!

  • Solid

    Maximum number of players MUST be 16!
    The room makers can set the limit of players below that if they want.

  • turkishgamer35

    this game is getting better and better not gonna lie before mgo3 trailer didn’t expect too much (L.A studio more western market) but now not only single player can’t wait to play mgo3 too…..

  • mr white

    MGS5 the best game of all time

    • MichaelPayneV

      Nope, that is MGS3!

      • Solid

        Nope, that is MGS1!

        • Edward Wokhands

          3!

          • moto hellogoto

            2 is my favorite.

          • Edward Wokhands

            2 is better than I remember, I replayed it recently and it actually makes a LOT of accurate predictions about our daily lives right now. There’s still something about 3 though that’s perfection. I can’t think of any flaws.

        • MichaelPayneV

          MGS1 is great, and it seems The Best because of Nostalgia and the impact it had on the Gaming Industry, but MGS3 is a better Game, is Hideo’s Best Work so far, so good that only The Phantom Pain could surpass it.

  • Mini gear

    I had a dream that I met hideo kojima, we got to take pictures and he was going to tell me the release date but I woke up.

    • Solid

      LOL

    • Edward Wokhands

      So now he’s even trolling us in our dreams. Great.

  • prothy

    Will we be able to take selfies only online? I’d like it if MGO came out later so I can beat MGS V first.

  • Big_Boss88

    Lots of nice information :D, thanks Nyx!

    “It seems still unclear if MGO will launch on the same day as MGSV: TPP, but they’re considering a simultaneous launch.”

    I hope so or I don’t also mind MGO coming a little later :), but anyway I will still spend countless hours first on TPP story+MB and enjoying it to the fullest. I’m the kind of player who likes to admire every detail of new games and play them kind of at a slow pace. Especially when it’s MGS. Only after that will I touch MGO.

  • moto hellogoto

    Sounds great. Thanks for the info!

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    I really would like to take the soldiers I recruit in TPP to fight in MGO, that would be a nice addition. I would also like if everything was seamlessly integrated, for instance I’d like to able to take a chopper from mother base into a multiplayer match.

    • MichaelPayneV

      I’m happy is not like that, not every Single Player Game needs to have a seamless transition, and actually MGSV should feel totally separate from MGO, it should have that feeling.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        How do you know it’s not like that?

        I can’t agree with that. Why should it feel seperate?

        If it’s going to be in the same locations as TPP, have the same characters as TPP and other connections as stated in this article why should I feel that my work in TPP’s Mother Base can’t carry over to MGO?
        Plus Peace Walker was like that, you couldn’t walk on Mother Base but when you were on Mother Base (main menu) you could go to a multiplayer match right there. I didn’t have to unload my single player campaign to do that and I don’t remember it all that well but I think you could take the soldiers you’ve recruited and the weapons you developed during your single player game.

        I believe MGS would only be better with integration.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Because Hideo said it himself, that Mother Base infiltration is not MGO3, that MGO3 comes is included in TPP, and that is a separate thing from the MGSV: TPP!

          • Kol Leqejza

            in mgo3 it makes total sense to use your resources & developments gathered/acquired in TPP. your having a private army which is doing contracts in conflict zones all over the world. just like tge pmcs in mgs 4 or like MSF in PW. hell, you could play as snake or any recruited members you fultoned from the battlefield etc. already in PW. and since MGS V is essentially peace walker 2.0 i see no reason in changing that. for what would you have an army for if only snake would do contracts? is the army just to show off? or just to defend motherbase? meh… that tons of GMP has to be earned by all soldiers not just snake.

            storywise its NOT allowed to feel seperate. there would be no need to fulton anything if its not in sone ways integrated. i have tge feeling the soldiers you fulton in TPP are a bit more than just stats that inkrease your mitherbase rank.

          • MichaelPayneV

            What you’re talking about is the Mother Base infiltration Mode from MGSV Campaign, like Watch Dogs invasion, but MGO3, that is separate and should stay this way, since The Campaign is already integrated with the Mother Base invasion.

          • Kol Leqejza

            your just not getting it…

            ” The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Online will affect each other in regards to some elements”

            nuff said. your tiresome.

          • MichaelPayneV

            “your just not getting it…”

            What is my just not getting? Whatever it is, give it to him, NOW!

            Leaving the Jokes aside, that only means that they are effecting each other, that what you do in TPP Campaign affects MGO3, it doesn’t mean that they interact with each other.

            1 Example i can give you is Ground Zeroes and TPP, they affect each other, but they don’t interact with each other.

            Get it?

          • Kol Leqejza

            Sry, just read that bullshit recently…

            you get ALL soldiers & POW’s you’ve recruited from GZ in TPP. hell, you get even PW’s sneaking suit & the capability to return to camp omega & do missions.

            besides: your point is invalid. GZ is necassary for the MGS V experience.

            so nuff said, kiddo.

          • MichaelPayneV

            I never said that GZ is not necessary, i just said that GZ and TPP won’t interact with each other, only TPP will interact with the GZ Save File that unlocks what you said, that’s it.

            Think before you talk.

          • Kol Leqejza

            sprechen sie englisch? sie verstehen nichts.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Now you are definitely Trolling.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Yes, TPP is not MGO they are different things.
            But I don’t see why they can’t be integrated.

            They probably won’t be because it seems that MGO needs more development time than TPP.

            But even though TPP and MGO are indeed different things I can’t see a reason for them not to be integrated in a package called MGSV.

            The chopper ride is really just a nice way to avoid cumbersome and unnecessary menus. It doesn’t stop both TPP and MGO from doing their own thing.

    • No. Just no.
      You’d become overpowered and that would ruin the game.

      • Kol Leqejza

        obviously you’ve never played peace walker & its multiplayer. it was balanced.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Have you played Peace Walker?

  • Rob Machado

    Selfie feature for the win.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    As we saw in the trailer, there will be large open areas but not as open as the whole Afganistan map for Team Sneaking ect.

    In other news,

    This cannot be!!! Damn the Patriots!

    • moto hellogoto

      I hope that release date is right!!! DOA 5 on steam and TPP in the same month <3. That would be great

    • vic boss

      Some people say that this person joakim N mogren is kojima himself, I doubt it, but February 24 is too specific for a placeholder date. Sites like gamestop have march 31 as the release date, that seems like a more reasonable placeholder for early 2015, but again February 24 seems way too specific, I really think thats the release date. Let’s hope Kojima reveal the release date on the next kojima station in december 25.

      • MiniBoss

        Joakim Mogren account is fake. February 24th could still be possible because of the leak and all.

      • MichaelPayneV

        Because it is, this is the account that tweeted the trailer, that revealed stuff.

        Joakim N. Mogren is the Agent Name of Hideo Kojima’s, then one that works for the Metal Gear Community.

        Believe it or not, Hideo Kojima is a Triple Agent, working for both Konami and leaking info for fans (Joakim Mogren also confirmed the PC Release before GDC 2013) while having his own agenda. Hideo is just like Ocelot

        Hmmm, nah, i’m just fukkin with you, haha, you should have saw your face, and no, in “definitely” not saying this to keep Hideo Cover intact.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          release date debunked!!!!!!!!!!!But the release date has a huge chance of being announced on the 25th

      • MichaelPayneV

        Hoobo, you can’t fool me anymore, i know its you, drop the act.

        Just kidding

    • Invader_skoodge

      LOL this comment was in the Microsoft Store where the game is up for pre-order. Funniest thing is this guy’s user name.

      Way way to sleazy…

      I saw gameplay and cutscenes and E3. It looked solid but all of the sexuality and revealing clothes made me disgusted.

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Sorry man, but what does that have to do with what I wrote?

  • moto hellogoto

    NEOgaf finally accepted my account 🙂 woot

    • Edward Wokhands

      Is your pretentiousness ready?

  • Shalashaska Has Landed..

    Hmmm… I don’t know how I feel about the marking system.

    With SOP, it made sense in the context of MGS4’s story. SOP hacking was something you had to work for with injections. Besides the obvious in MGS5 (Marked enemies permanently transparent in real-time via binoculars, telescopes, corner peeking, etc. not appearing plausible), I fear this would easily encourage running-and-gunning if everybody can effortlessly see each other through walls and objects.

    Of course, I’ll ultimately reserve judgement until I get my filthy paws on the game.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Some people are speculating that the mark will only last 30 seconds or so based on some other game with marking in it. This is a good solution.

    • Skicher

      Well it could work just like in MGO2 when you used the skill ‘Monomania’, if I recall correctly, and you spotted an enemy. It would show it to your teammates (who were SOP linked) but it only lasted a few seconds.

  • Xomak

    My biggest hope/request is the return of a fully customizable avatar/player-character. I want to be able to select the gender, race, age, and tone/pitch of the voice on my character! That was what made me love MGO2 so much was the ability to accessorize/dress-up my character. Change up fatigues/camouflage, holsters, harness, goggles/eye-ear, helmet, balaclava, headset, gloves, boots/knee-pads, ….

  • moto hellogoto

    • Ninja_Se7eN

      I saw that rumor too here: http://www.vgchartz.com/article/252573/rumor-metal-gear-solid-5-the-phantom-pain-coming-out-in-february-2015/

      Isn’t it weird that they wouldn’t announce a game’s release date just 2 months away from the supposed release date?

      • Edward Wokhands

        It’s strange but not unheard of and honestly what difference to sales would a month make? People are OBSESSED with MGS5, every single gaming site will be going nuts about this. Even normal news sites will be reporting this if it releases in Feb. Nintendo have released some games on the same day they announce them and still been successful!

        Right now I don’t believe it, I’m sick of getting my hopes up, expecting a release date at 3 separate events during 2014. That’s my fault though, nobody said there’d be a date. I’m expecting June but if it’s Feb I wouldn’t be surprised and I would FUCKING EXPLODE with happiness. I’d have to sprint 300 miles none stop while screaming just to get the happiness out.

        • Mini gear

          Exactly how I feel

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          I’d love to be wrong but this rumor doesn’t make sense from a business point of view.

      • Chris Redfield

        buddy i guess u don’t know much about the world right?..let me tell u something…EVERY single fucking game that is famous enough like this or whatever every single game..the stores u know that they receive the game earlier..and some stores doesn’t respect the release date and already give the game to the customers who pre-ordered like a week before the release..or the game come up on internet before that..so u really think that this pic was took by someone official?..no..everybody knows that the hype in TPP is soo damn strong and everybody wanna know a release date for this so the only way to get to know that is by doing illegal things and this pic..IS something illegal made with good intentions for us fans of MGS..it’s a leak not an official thing..maybe a mole inside Konami or a store took this pic and put on internet for the MGS fans..cause u cannot trust all the people that works in your company..and the black market gets information fast and if u know how to look for it and for the right price u get everything that u want..so this date might be true or was cause now maybe Konami will erase that date and release it later after this leak..or if they’re good guys they will announce it sooner the release date

        • Ninja_Se7eN

          I don’t even understand what this rant is about xD.

          • Chris Redfield

            man everybody knows that Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid were and always will be the best gaming series in the planet..u just announce a new R.E or a new MGS and the world stops..and now TPP is the game of the moment so everybody wanna know about it and people who has information about it are willing to sell it for the highest price so u really think that every single gamer on the planet are a loser who doesn’t have money? everybody likes games good people or bad..and to know something that is soo lucrative for them people would pay i’m not paranoid i’m realist if u don’t know a shit about how dirty business work then don’t say shits about it

      pls tell me its true

    • MrVux007

      i would love it to be true…but since there were so many *leaks* that TPP will come out late 2014 only to end up to be false,i will be strongly sceptical about this one…until i hear nothing official from Kojima-pro or Kojima himself,that is 🙂

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Me too. Isn’t it weird that they wouldn’t announce a game’s release date just 2 months away from the supposed release date?

        • MrVux007

          Its more then weird ….games usualy annaunce the release date 3 months erlier …..

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Here’s what MGO’s official twitter replied to me:

          • Cmosfbincludestdioh

            well at least they did not deny it

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            That’s true.

          • MrVux007

            Well the guy on Reddit (The Konami/Kojima pro. spokesman) said that its the wrong date…

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Figures, Kojima posted another VO session today on twitter. It doesn’t seem like it’s near launch to me.

          • MrVux007

            wait wait…still doing VO ?!?!?!? yep this confirms it for me,no release before May-June

          • Cmosfbincludestdioh

            hold on this confirms nothing they can basically add or take things away from the final game till it gets its gold status

          • MrVux007

            after over 5 years of development and still doing VO…..

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            That’s true but Kojima did VO for MSG4 until very late in the development of the game too.

          • Mack Ayash

            So? Voice overs can be one of the last things you do. Or maybe they’ve already done the bulk of it but they’re redoing some parts, adding some parts, etc. Love how everyone becomes an expert.

          • Kol Leqejza

            VO’s are always the last to come.

          • Chris Redfield

            or maybe is a decoy ¬_¬

          • Chris Redfield

            oww yes because u will ask about a secret they’re trying to hide and they will tell u the truth ¬_¬ i don’t know if you’re so naive or so dumb or maybe both of course they will deny it…is the same to ask to a person that just stole something if she stole something..duhhh of course she will deny it ¬_¬

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            I don’t know why you’re a total dick on Christmas Eve but just do me a favour and keep your idiotic manners to yourself next time you jerk.

          • Chris Redfield

            well how about u don’t say stupid things so naive then?..i just cant stand to stupidity ¬_¬

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Neither can I, the difference is that I’m not an arrogant prick who misinterprets other people’s posts and feels almighty to insult another person just because he can…

            If you were capable of writing a post without insulting anyone in it I almost would consider explaining to you whatever it is that you consider stupid about my posts and you’re clearly not understanding.

            But even if I did post something stupid and naive (which I didn’t), you have absolutely no right to insult me because of it. As far as I’m concerned there’s still freedom of speech and I can say whatever I please as long as I don’t insult anyone.
            And I’m pretty sure I didn’t insult you until you butted in on a conversation I wasn’t having with you and started insultin me…

      i hope this date to be true..cause seriously they released Ground Zeroes on February of 2014, so if we already have to wait a whole year for Tha Phantom Pain..then is more than fair to release on February 2015..cause if they release on June or late 2015 seriously is soo fucked up cause why to release the Prologue of a game that would come a year and a half or almost 2 years later? that would be soo damn stupid seriously..and our Lord Kojima is anything but stupid so i really think this date is true..actually for me they could release the game now on December 2014 as a new years present cause this december there were no good release even so, so TPP would be the end with a golden key of 2014

      • Kol Leqejza

        GZ came out in march, 2014.

        • Chris Redfield

          okay my mistake..but does it change anything in what i said?…release a prologue of a game that will release 1 year and a half/2 years later is stupid and Kojima is not stupid so i don’t think that he will release TPP in the middle of 2015 basically..shit if that happens then people prepare the torches to go hit the door of Konami like a big bang haha

          • Solid Snakes Revenge

            The reason they released GZ was because TPP was gonna take a long time and he wanted to give the fans something while we wait. TPP is probably taking longer than expected and it looks as if he’s trying to make the perfect game.

    • solidsnack

      i don’t really mind when it comes out i’m just so happy to be alive for the release of this game! 🙂

      • Chris Redfield

        well if take so long to be released who knows u will be alive until then? hahaha

    • prothy

      Where did you get this pic?

  • MrVux007

    My body is ready…but my wallet is not : /

  • Mini gear

    I did some peeking and found a dlc file line in an ini file for gz

    • Edward Wokhands

      That’s for the “exclusive” DLC isn’t it? Like the Raiden mission for PS4 and Deja Vu for XO?

      • Mini gear

        Probley, but there’s still possibiltys with kojima, it might be doing something for TPP or something new or forgotten

  • 9Ocelot9

    bros bros! i got dis, just asked right now, what do you think?! Plausible or not!? 24 feb on the store!

    EDIT LINK TO GAME: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Metal-Gear-Solid-V-The-Phantom-Pain-for-Xbox-One/productID.282497300

      this is looking better and better 😀

      • Cristian Landeros

        i asked too about few hours

        • Mr.Pony

          Well GZ was first launched in march 18, so releasing the TPP almost a year later is plausible and it is better than waiting for june 18

    • moto hellogoto

      I’m going to take so much time off of work to play this game.

      TIME TO GET MY PS4!!

    • im a dot

      ill keep hope mainly because hes been wrong before ill lose hope when the day passes

    • Cristian Landeros

      maybe 24/2/2015 it’s not the release date, but i don’t believe he is a Konami staff member.

      • Jeff O’Connor

        Tora’s been verified. He’s a legitimate employee.

        • Eric Otness

          Even still, I find it very fishy that Microsoft, the guys who are releasing MGSV onto their Xbox systems, would make incorrect statements about the release date and apparently behind KP’s back, especially when three staffers at MS claimed that to be the release date. I mean, if we were talking about something like Best Buy which is merely just a retailer, that’s one thing, but it’s another for Microsoft to do that since unlike Best Buy, they actually release the games onto their consoles.

          Basically, Microsoft alongside Sony would be the first to actually be told a release date by Kojima Productions (after all, they’d need to tell them if they are going to release them), so I find it extremely unlikely that they’d get the release date wrong, especially behind KP’s back.

    • MrVux007

      when in doubt just go to Reddit ….

    • Eric Otness

      Hmmm… I find this to be very fishy, really. I can understand if this was something like Amazon, Best Buy, or GameStop, even EB Games. But, he’s denying the release dates supplied by Microsoft, which is one of the top video gaming companies with the Xbox franchise, which also includes MGSV? Can someone PLEASE request to ToraShiro how he can explain how Microsoft, the guys they are distributing TPP to via their Xbox systems, are stating falsehoods, especially when KP needs to actually talk to Microsoft and Sony and keep them in the loop regarding stuff like this since, you know, their systems are what MGSV is being released on? This isn’t just a retailer, it’s also the guys who actually release the games on their systems.

  • thetrooper1989

    To all you guys disappointed about the user ToraShiro debunking the February 2015 release date, keep in mind that he is not a reliable source at all. Remember this http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=10126

    This dude has been way off on his “inside” sources , so keep the hope alive ladies and gentleman.

    • Guest

      I too think that maybe the release date is true after all. We just have to wait for the 25th december

    • Edward Wokhands

      He’s probably a janitor who loves attention. I’m not believing the Feb date, it’s too good to be true.

  • Dizz

    “To keep the game fast paced, matches take place in self-contained maps
    with various climates and types of terrain, not in an open world.”

    I would much prefer to have a choice of the two.

    Sounds like they aren’t giving us the choice because it may be more difficult to optimize the netcode for a larger map, and are taking the lazy route instead. Not all of us want “fast-paced”, run-and-gun CoD matches. Give fans a bloody choice. You just developed the first sandbox-style Metal Gear and aren’t applying even a shred of it to MGO.

    “I was saying Boo-urns….”

    • Mini gear

      Ello joakim

  • Big_Boss88

    I have to say that it was pretty awesome to play GZ with Japanese VA :D. But I will of course play TPP first with English on PS4 and the do the Japanese version on PC :). Because I assume the PS4 version won’t have the option to change it :P.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Why not play it PC on both English and Japanese?

      • Big_Boss88

        Yeah I might ;), just need to download the game again if wanna switch the audio, but I think the save game’s will be safe. Well they better be lol if do that in TPP :D.

        Anyway I still have to buy TPP on PS4 or GZ is too lonely without the other half ;(…

        • MichaelPayneV

          Why even bother with the PS4 version anymore, when you saw that the PC Version is the Definitive MGSV?

          • Big_Boss88

            Hmm well I dunno, lets just say that I like playing on PS4 and now that I have the console thx to GZ, I wanna buy games for it :3… or it will only remain to collect dust.

            I can play PC games on my TV too which is nice, but I think I need to buy MGS on my PS :P. It’s kind of like a tradition for me xD.

          • Mini gear

            Same for me, plus for some reason I know it’s not but it looks better to me.

          • MichaelPayneV

            True, but i think that MGO will be better on PC, because compared to PS4 playing MGO will be Free, on PC you don’t need a Monthly Subscription Service like PS Plus or Xbox Live, no, all you need is The game and an Internet Connection.

          • MrVux007

            Dont worry mate,you wont make a mistake buying it on PS4 🙂 and a lot of other games for it ….cheers 🙂

    • MrVux007

      well at this point everything is possible…we allready seen some improvements on TGS 2014 over final version of GZ (PS4) …so i wouldnt be surprised if they add it in the final product…or add a patch for it 🙂

      • Big_Boss88

        Hmm you’re right ;), anything is possible :D. We’ll see after few months.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Oh shit! I made a strange discovery right now! (not so big of a deal)
    Take a look at these 2 cutscenes:
    http://youtu.be/k1G2XA2Xz6w?t=14m57s
    http://youtu.be/WgbWZOnTMUc?t=20m44s
    Anything familiar?

    • MichaelPayneV

      I’m sorry, i don’t see it, can you tell us what it is?

      • ObsessedGeorge

        You can’t see it because there is nothing to see. It’s sound. The Deja Vu mission in Ground Zeroes, when you enter The DARPA Chief’s and Baker’s cell, the sound effect that plays is the same as in the MGS2 flashback scene.

        • MichaelPayneV

          Oh, now i get it. Thanks for making that clear.

  • We need our Clan logos on weapons and uniforms damn it… get to it Koji LA 🙂

  • Omid Darakeh

    Release date?

    • Big_Boss88

      Maybe and I really hope so, but my brains think we will see the release date in some game event next year, like PAX or GDC. Included within a trailer or something.

  • XIFF-5

    Medic’s Face! a PC version of GZ can reveal hidden things in cut scenes!

    • MichaelPayneV

      As Expected, he is a Snake!

    • Big_Boss88

      It can reveal hidden things D: … I didn’t know that.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      What? Why hide a face we haven’t seen before?

      • MichaelPayneV

        Because we were not supposed to already know that he is a Snake!

        • ObsessedGeorge

          I don’t think that he looks like Snake to me…

          • MichaelPayneV

            Are you kidding me?

          • ObsessedGeorge

            No, l can’t see the resemblance.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Add a Beard, Mullet and an Eye Patch, and then you’ll see.

          • decoyF0XX

            Man I’m like 99.9% sure he’s a snake clone.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            Why bother complicating things like that?

        • Max Colliander

          The medic is about 3 Years old u mean? I bet its grey fox, and maybe ishmael too.

          • MichaelPayneV

            No, the Medic is just a Medic, and Snake remembers him looking like Ishmael because his Comma has altered his Memory of the Ground Zeroes events.

    • natthecat

      Does anyone else think he looks a little like this guy?

      • Cmosfbincludestdioh

        more like this i think

      • ObsessedGeorge

        That was the first image that came to my mind as well. Maybe because of his nose.

    • im a dot

      his chin looks huge

    • decoyF0XX

      I can confirm he’s definitely a Big Boss clone now!

  • Sn4ke_911

    GET HYPE!

    • Cmosfbincludestdioh

      maybe its the release date finally

    Huey ruined Christmas for Big Boss. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

      Merry Christmas xD!
      Hmm lol yeah I think maybe Huey stole Big Boss’ Christmas present, so it could be the reason for torture scene in TPP. Big Boss wants it back >:O !

    Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays to MetalGearInformer and the community 🙂

    Can’t wait for next year for TPP!!! I have feeling Summer is gonna be the release date for sure.

    Finally we will see the fall of Big Boss to the dark side. And maybe have a glimpse of Solid Snake and Liquid Snake throughout the game ^^

    • MichaelPayneV

      You could say that we already had a glimpse of Solidus.
      http://metal-gear.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/01-1Qcd6sx.jpg

      • ObsessedGeorge

        HAHAHAHA! C’mon man, Solidus must be 3 years old by now.

        • MichaelPayneV

          12, GZ Scenes are most likely how Big Boss remembers the events before his Comma, and the reason he sees The Medic as Ishamel, is because he is combining what he sees and hears while in the comma, with what he remembers, which in the end alters his memory.

          If he isn’t Solidus, then why does he Look and Sound like a Snake?

          • ObsessedGeorge

            I’m really confused dude, l don’t know.

          • MrVux007

            Or just maybe Ishmael is a hallucination? and besides Solidus wasnt born at the same time(1972-1976,since shortly after Solidus creation the Les Enfant Terribles project was abandoned in 1976) as Liquid and Solid,cuz of the complexety of his *growing process*….in his teenage years, Solidus Snake worked as a CIA paramilitary, eventually being dispatched to Liberia in the late 1980s, to participate in the civil war….Big Boss never mentioned any affiliations with the man…but then again that confirms nothing,and all of this is just simply an speculation….its a shame tho that they revealed his face tho,if he is indeed a major character in TPP it might be considered somewhat a Spolier.,..

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s exactly what i said, that Ishmael is Solidus, and that The Medic is just a Random Soldier, and that GZ is an altered version or what Snake remembers happening bfore his Coma, therefore he starts believing that Ishmael was in the Chopper with him.

          • Kol Leqejza

            the medic IS ishmael.

      Yea Merry Christmas to you also Prince !

    Well, i guess we can all agree that 2014 was a fukked up year for Gaming.

    What a way to end 2014.

    • MrVux007

      of all the games that came in 2014…the only ones that trully caught my eye were Dragon Age Inqusition,Shadow of Mordor(even tho the story is a total crap IMO)…..

    All that hype for a cock…

    KOJIMA !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mini gear

    A chicken… I’m gonna disappear and see if the games out at 2016-2099

  • thetrooper1989

    As much as I was disappointed with yet another Trolljima letdown, I will be the first to say that it has been a pleasure theorizing and speculating with you fellow MGS fan over these past few years. In a way, all the conspiracy theories you guys have conjured up has been just as entertaining as anything i’ve taken part in. In my opinion, enjoy it while you can because MGS V: TPP will be out in 2015 and we’ll all have these fond memories of bliss and total hearbreak to look back to.

  • Venom_Sina

    Hey guys.Unfortunately Kojima-san trolled us again.still no release date(damn!!!)
    I wish you a great year.Merry Christmas.

  • moto hellogoto

    Huge disappointment. I think Kojima is disconnected from reality or at least his fans. He seriously thought that THAT podcast deserved all the hype that he gave it. Oy vey

  • Cristian Landeros

    The Phantom Pain Release date updated to “TBD” in Microsoft Store

  • Big_Boss88

    Not sure why some of you were expecting to see a release date in Kojima Station. It makes honestly more sense imo to see it next year in some of the early game events, included with a trailer or something. Or just announced in the shows anyway. Not in some Kojima Station episode.

    Wasn’t disappointed myself too much for the lack of RD in todays episode, because I think we will get to know the date in Q1.

  • Big_Boss88

    Sure is interesting stuff o_O …
    http://gamingbolt.com/david-hayter-sound-files-found-in-metal-gear-solid-5-ground-zeroes-medics-face-finally-uncovered

    Not sure what was the point of hiding Medic’s face, maybe just to bring up questions for fans. But we’ll see in TPP if he survives after that GZ ending explosion/chopper collision.

    David Hayter voices found from GZ? Or just some random stuff…I dunno.
    http://vocaroo.com/i/s00dDtJgJsNk
    http://vocaroo.com/i/s1aHBrAw9Brh
    http://vocaroo.com/i/s0RcIzytBLtK

    I don’t really understand how these guys would find some of these sound files in GZ, or even reveal Medic’s face. Not a tech expert myself so dunno how to do it :P.

    • Invader_skoodge

      I’m not sure but I think they said that they zoomed in during the cut scene and moved the mouse to the top corner of the screen and left it there. that’s where you can see medic’s face.

      Yeah those sound clips are weird. I think they had someone else make Hayters voice and planned to use them for the Deja Vu mission. That’s my theory at least.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        thats raidens voice for jamais vue.thats not hayters voice but hell still be in this game.

  • 9Ocelot9

    We got rekt’d pretty hard by Trolljima its seems, i agree that maybe we’ve been hyping up too much, but come on! Its not like Kojima wasnt leading us on!!. All that “big anouncement” tweets and all… for a chicken hat!! D:

    Well, im not really angry over it, infact, i kinda expected such a thing.

    But what im VERY WORRIED about is, if by now they cant even come up with a narrow, release window, Much less a specific date, its that we’re in for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG wait, they said early 2015, and this pace id pretty much say late 2015 even Christmas by then, even 2016 if anything goes wrong and they have to delay it!

    NOOO I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE PLS D:

    • MrVux007

      i would expect May-June release….

  • MrVux007

    I dont know why….but all the sudden, i have a strong urge to play……#AngryBirds

    • MichaelPayneV

      I also feel something similar, but a bit different, i mean i feel like eating some KFC.

  • Invader_skoodge

    You know, I just noticed how many people work on the game. It’s crazy to see all of them in one room. And then you have the LA studio.
    And even then, there’s no comparison with how many people work at Rockstar. My mind ( @o@)

      So many O_O.

      this picture explain mgs4 credits screen

    • Javier Sosa

      No time for pictures, keep working in tpp.

  • Cesare Di Maio

    It seems that TPP will have 149 missions, found all the IDs / GMP reward / difficulty / , and requirements in Ground Zeroes files

    • vic boss

      If this is real and like how they said that every mission will be atleast 30 min long the first playtrough. so it equals to 4500 min which is 75 hours. That’s if all the missions were half an hour long, but some of them will be longer. I mean the first time I played ground zeroes it took me 1 hour and 20 min to beat it. So Phantom Pain will be pretty fuc*ing long. At least all this wait will be worth at the end.

      • turkishgamer35

        olso imagine this game have a trophy just like in the peace walker and ground zeroes “Clear all missions with a S-rank”

        • im a dot

          there goes my life span

          • turkishgamer35

            lol yeah always aim for platinum trophy in the every mgs game got plat mgs4,mgs3 and peace walker (try mgs 2 and rising too but very hard for me especially that vr missions) and this game gonna be huge with a lot of missions am sure kojima add s rank trophy in this game too

      • Javier Sosa

        But it was the first time. Now you know how to play it. I’m sure there will be missions of 5 minutes long, shooting from an helicopter or something linear like that.
        My first time in gz was 140 minutes and now I do 15 or 20.

        • turkishgamer35

          of course but thats the point imagine first time you play all those missions (149) you said first time spend 140 minutes in the gz alone so think about it first time you play 149 missions thats a lot gameplay agreed about short missions but still mostly they are gonna long and didn’t even mention s rank

      • Cesare Di Maio

        Probably some of the first missions are the one we have already, like missionid = 0 is Ground Zeroes
        EDIT: confirmed TPP locations are
        Guantanamo / Camp Omega
        Cyprus / Hospital
        Afghanistan
        Middle Africa
        Mother Base
        Old Mother Base

        • Cesare Di Maio

          Here, all the folder contain textures files

          • turkishgamer35

            dude thats great! no idea how you do it but keep continue:) but i didn’t understand two locations Camp Omega and Old Mother Base how can you visit those locations in the TPP?

          • Cesare Di Maio

            my theory is that you probably will visit old mother base in TPP, probably to check if ZEKE and the nuke are there

          • turkishgamer35

            well thats a great theory probably thats the reason just like shadow moses stage in the mgs4

          • Cesare Di Maio

            forgot to say that kojima said long time ago, that if you have Ground Zeroes, somehow you’ll return to Camp Omega in TPP

          • turkishgamer35

            cool didn’t know that only know you gonna get some bonus for TPP if you have GZ and bro you really have good info for TPP am gonna follow you 🙂

          • Cesare Di Maio

            so far, unique POWs, Soldiers and GZ Sneaking Suit, will be available in TPP, also trials, completion time ect, will add some goods in TPP aswell, all done with data transfer

          • turkishgamer35

            thats great man!!!

          • im a dot

            could you make a download for these folders? I cant figure out how to decrypt mine.

      • MrVux007

        but didnt kojima say that it will have over 100 hours? or did he meant the TPP content in general?

    • turkishgamer35
    • XIFF-5

      Oh come on guys, we are tired of these kind of news and pics…
      File data! File data!
      Don’t believe any bullshit unless they confirm an info, so please don’t waste your time on believing or even doubt about it.

      • Cesare Di Maio

        you can check yourself in PC Ground Zeroes, extract the data_02.g0s using MGSV_QAR tool, decrypt the .lua files, and there you have the files called gmpEarnMissions.

        path is:…data_02AssetstppmotherbasegmpEarnMissions [LUA file]

        no need to be so aggressive, you can already swap skin between missions, change starting weapons, ect… there are videos too, check Steam forum of MGS V GZ

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmm I’ll pass on these stuff. I rather wait for TPP and see what it has to offer.

          Not that it would be interesting to check out all these files etc, if these info indeed are correct. But I try to avoid reading stuff like this mostly because if contain some possible spoilers :).

        • im a dot

          could you link that tool?

        • im a dot

          how do you decrypt lua files?

      • turkishgamer35

        we want believe man 🙂 just like that release date pics….

    • im a dot

      if only ground zeros had weather and time change.

      • Cesare Di Maio

        people are already trying that, someone made clean weather and day time version of Ground Zeroes mission, but can’t confirm that

        • im a dot

          if only we could use snakes tpp face

      • Cesare Di Maio

        there ya go, confirmed, not dinamic tho

        • Invader_skoodge

          This is what Reddit is doing with the Assets.

          http://horobox.co.uk/u/Jojje_1419716183.jpg

          • Cesare Di Maio

            That is doable by swapping and renaming the Face textures, right now, i’m playing with the weather, enabled foggy and sandstorm, will provide screenshots later

          • im a dot

            new conspiracy (mostly wrong) skull face is somehow big boss

    • Cesare Di Maio

      17:35 Ground Zeroes – Foggy, probably used in the African Jungle, as Sandstorm counterpart, visual is so damn low

      • Cesare Di Maio

        Sandstorm, same as foggy but orange, probably because sandstorm smoke and sand effects are missing, 17:35 Ground Zeroes

  • MichaelPayneV

    Damn, i got so used to Kiefer Voice that i find weird hearing Hayter anymore.

    What is wrong with me?

    • Big_Boss88

      It’s the same for me ;). Now when replaying older MGS games it feels kinda weird to hear Hayter’s voice lol ^-^.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I guess this means that Kiefer is a better Snake then Hayter, and that the reason we think Hayter is Snake is Nostalgia.

    • turkishgamer35

      same here first i find Kiefer voice is weird and didn’t like it but after spend so many hours in the GZ really like it and feels better voice for big boss but still for me solid snake=david hayter

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah.I have the same feeling.Kiefer done a fantastic job.Like our friend “XIFF-5″ said:”Kiefer as Big Boss, And David as Solid Snake forever”.I’m waiting for Kiefer’s performance in TPP.(and David Hayter’s performance as young Solid Snake!!!)

        • turkishgamer35

          agreed Kiefer as Big Boss and David as Solid Snake epic win!

    • XIFF-5

      Nothing is wrong with you or with us, simply Kiefer’s voice fits with Big Boss more than David.

      IMO, Kiefer as Big Boss, And David as Solid Snake forever.

    • MrVux007

      you feel it to…dont you?

  • Big_Boss88

    Darn so many days without new MGS info to comment on >_<…

    I hope Nyxus can save us when holidays are over ;D !

    • MichaelPayneV

      You can fill your time reading what people continue to fin in Ground Zeroes files about TPP!

      • ObsessedGeorge

        What mostly is spoilers…

        • Big_Boss88

          Is one of the reasons I will avoid them. IF by ANY chance my eyes notice something very spoilerish in there, I will never forgive myself :P. My most anticipated game ever anyway so…yeah. I’ll not do that xD.

    • gerber

      Why there is no news here about the infamous christmas kojima station announcement troll? Kojima made 4k live viewers to watch 3 hours of unwrapping presents only to announce a god damn chicken hat. Three hours we’ve lost… Won’t stop hurting.

  • thetrooper1989

    I’m so hesitant to look at the possible content for TPP but I can’t help myself. 149 missions, good god man.

    • MrVux007

      thats 75 hours ? but didnt kojima say that it will have over 100 hours? or did he meant the TPP content in general?

      • Big_Boss88

        For me 500 hours lol, maybe. But I do want to see the ending of the game so maybe need to play a little shorter for first time ;).

        • MrVux007

          lol 500 hours ….even on Skyrim with all the mods on it i only got out like 190-200 hours out of it 😀

          • Big_Boss88

            ;D ok maybe I was exaggerating a little lol. But way more over 75 hours for sure, for me. I will take it at a nice pace and not to forget Mother Base building etc :), which I think will hold a crucial part of the story.

            Meaning maybe can’t progress further in story if don’t develop certain things etc :D.

          • MrVux007

            same here….slow and sweet gameplay

      • vic boss

        75 hours is just an estimate, like i said some missions will be longer than others , 75 hours is just if all the missions were 30 minutes long which we know some won’t be, and the first time you play those missions you will not know where to go or what to expect so it may be even more than a 100 hours.

        Also reading this article made me realize that is a good thing that Kojima hasn’t revealed the release date yet. http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2014/12/09/assassins-creed-unity-vs-the-witcher-3-why-video-game-studios-should-wait-to-announce-a-release-date/

  • NakedSnake85

    Medic is snakes body double in the phantom pain.. and ishmael is just how he remembers him self prior the helicopter crush. really its easy to figure it out.. now either the medic is another clone or he just resembles snake too much… I HAVE A theory also why snake in GZ does not talk too much.. well here goes… notice that in scenes that snake IS NOT AT MOTHERBASE hes preety quiet.. like when he calls chico or paz… or when he talks at kaz via radio… he uses just few words… on the contrary when hes in the chopper he talks too much and hes very expressive via words… well imo thats because THE MEDIC WAS IN FRONT OF HIM AS A WITNESS AND HE REMEMBERS EVERYTHING THE REAL BIG BOSS SAID CLEARLY… But when Boss WAS AWAY HE Couldnt BE SURE WHAT HAPPENED OR WHAT WORDS SNAKE USED EXACTLY.. well i think that the medic is an imposter a person that ocelot zero or even kaz trained to be a big boss’ double for whatever the reason… really think about it..this justifies why kiefer voices him and the medic and ishmael.. maybe GZ is WHAT THE MEDIC REMEMBERS AS THE TRUTH..while its not..

  • PrinceHeir

    Still no new article X__X

    Nyxus must be on break 😀 He did this last year if i remember correctly ^^

    Let’s post some awesome MGS pics in the meanwhile

      • Ilja Y.

        Wow that artwork looks amazing!

        Also, MGSV: The Phantom Pain is pretty much the only game I look forward to play.

        I remember watching the first Phantom Pain trailer (moby dick studio) almost 3 years ago… Time goes by

    • Invader_skoodge

      This is what people are doing with the unpacked files from Ground Zeroes

      http://horobox.co.uk/u/Jojje_1419642266.jpg

      This is what Trolljima is doing with his time

      https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B519JNkCAAEGuzw.jpg

      • im a dot

        aghhhh it kills me knowing kojima can play tpp all day

      • MichaelPayneV

        What, Venom Snake and the Chicken Mask is in Ground Zeroes files?

        • Cesare Di Maio

          no simply hideo kojima jap twitter

        • Invader_skoodge

          No, I’m saying while Kojima is playing with his Chicken Hat, modders are moving around files in Ground Zeroes and someone in NEOGAF is already working on making a program that changes the weather in missions.

          http://i.imgur.com/H9uKsQN.png

          • Venom_Sina

            oh yeah.these guys are genius!!a fully customizable Ground Zeroes.that would be a new experience.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, i know, someone already made it possible to play as Kojima himself.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        everything is realistic except kawaii chicken cap.

    • Big_Boss88

      Yea can’t really blame Nyxus :D, because it’s Christmas holiday after all <3.

    • turkishgamer35

      wolf looks great!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    Also MGS3 is already 10 years now(time flies by!). Let’s see if The Phantom Pain can top it!

    https://twitter.com/kojima_pro/status/544674532804403200

    • Venom_Sina

      That game was masterpiece!!I’m sorry…..This game IS masterpiece!!!the story is the best in Metal Gear franchise.Let’s see if The Phantom Pain can top MGS3.

    • Big_Boss88

      I believe it will.

      If TPP give us lots of emotional scenes, amazing story with epic ending like MGS3 and much memorable dialogues, then yeah :D! But this is MGS we’re talking about, so these are like 100% confirmed to be included in TPP.

      I’m already loving the open world gameplay style.

  • Big_Boss88

    Stumbled upon this. Referring to the Kojima Station hype I guess.

    https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/t31.0-8/10887264_760045790715872_1871716660620438120_o.jpg

    Is basically what I was saying earlier, my opinion I mean, that it would be silly to give us release date in Kojima Station. I say we will hear it in a big game event with a trailer next year, something that millions will watch live. There’s couple of those coming in Q1 if I remember right.

    That would be loud enough for MGS I imagine. Just hoping it would release before or right after E3, maybe April-June.

    • turkishgamer35

      agreed actually this release date hype start from last summer that yong yea (not sure his name but a mgs fan from youtube) said mgs 5 gonna release february and people believe him

      • Cesare Di Maio

        Because 3 retailers including Micro$oft Store, added that release date

        • Big_Boss88

          I thought it was March for a long time because of the GZ DLC hint, like 1 year from GZ. But It’s maybe not gonna happen now.

          • Mini gear

            I’ll be stubborn and won’t give up a March release until March 31st passes

          • Big_Boss88

            Anything’s possible, but I don’t get my hopes up for it too much.

        • turkishgamer35

          not only that few months ago kojima post a pic about new konami games and shows mgs5 release date is Q4 and that time this torashimo guy in the neogaf said mgs 5 not gonna release Q4 or februray same for kojima after ms store news people asking on twitter and he said all release dates for mgs5 is false wait for offical annoucement but still people be like “forget about this developer we knows mgs 5 release date” and one more thing according to sony store watch dogs release date is june 30 http://gamerssphere.com/2014/03/03/watch-dogs-release-date-appears-sony-store/

    • Venom_Sina

      Thanks for the information.I think the best bet is Q2 2015.for example,june.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Kojima is making a trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • crimson_shadow3

    Is anyone else worried that they might overdue mgo for Tpp by putting to much in it? Hopefully I’m worrying for nothing. Also is anyone else having trouble trying to get on yongyea review website? I can’t get on with my computer

    • MichaelPayneV

      Yes, thenasian.com broke during the Kojima Station episode.

      • crimson_shadow3

        That’s unfortunate hope it comes back soon. Thanks for replying and letting me know I appreciate it. Thought it was just me who couldn’t get on was scared for a moment.

  • KiloTwoOne

    Someday…..

  • vic boss

    I can’t believe that it’s been almost two years that this video was shown to us, time goes fast but even then it seems that we’ll never get an official release date other than 2015 .

    Metal Gear Solid 5 Trailer (HD 1080p): http://youtu.be/pRSZy12EOSs

    • turkishgamer35

      2 year ? damn … just like you said time goes fast even this seems like it was only yesterday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtemqeMG8XI

    • Big_Boss88

      Yeah 2 daaarn long years xD of waiting for this masterpiece!!!

      My favorite trailer…love everything about this ;). Best part starting in 2:10 and that fire unicorn chase with Ocelot is gonna kick ass :D!

      I wonder how those soldiers find out about Big Boss’ awakening from coma, or his location. The dudes probably thought he died after GZ, but later find out it wasn’t so.

  • vic boss

    The translation of the first tweet is: Adjustment, specifications add, modify, and production enhancement. Today’s play check in PS4 edition.

    Second tweet: During assembly of the game.

    maybe the game is close to being done. or maybe not . maybe we’ll have to wait another 6 months for it to come out. or maybe it will come out in march. who knows.

    • MrVux007

      Gawd the inside of the choppa looks so darn gorgeous!

    • Invader_skoodge

      What if the game was about to be finished and ready to announce a release date, and Kojima said, “NOPE. I just hand an idea. How about a chicken hat? Stop everything, make it happen. I want a chicken hat in the game.” So that’s why the game is not finished and there’s no release date. Because of that one hat. LOL 😀 🙂 😐 :[ 🙁 :C

    • MichaelPayneV

      Weird how he says “Play Check in PS4 edition” yet there is a Mouse and Keyboard there.

      • MrVux007

        There is a 360 controller,PS4 Controller,PS4 console and PC with K/M…. 🙂

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yes, which means that he i checking the Game on PC, since PC is the only platform compatible with all the Controllers and Mouse and Keyboard!

          • MrVux007

            you do know that game developing is done on PC,right? if he says they are doing improvements for PS4 then he is probably doing it for PS4…..no metaphors or mystery about that lol

    • im a dot

      my heads exploded 800 times already for this game. ill never give up march even if it passes

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      putting the game means playing the game to know what it feels like.said by kojima.

  • Big_Boss88

    —————————————————————————

    Some random guy posted this on Steam TPP forums, I dunno if the announcements really happened this way. If so then there is still hope for March launch I think :). Maybe we get release day announcement in January somehow :P, but best not to get too hopeful.
    In a game event it maybe happens or maybe not, but is there any game events coming in January? Was it PAX or something else? GDC is starting on March 2nd so it couldn’t be that lol.

    • Mini gear

      Jan. 23 to 25 is south pax

      • Big_Boss88

        Alrighty :), thanks!

        • Mini gear

          Np, I hope he’s somehow gonna be there, it’s the last chance for a March miracle

      • Cesare Di Maio

        Iif i remember correctly, Ground Zeroes release date was revealed the day after the ending of Tokio Game Show, using the video gameplay of the Xbox One version of the Ground Zeroes mission. and that without any particular event, just here, a video with a release date.

        • Big_Boss88

          I see, thanks for this info because I honestly didn’t remember ;). I only remember watching the trailer over and over again, but not when or how the release date was announced lol.

    • Theo Cevallos

      I have faith in march :’3

  • Shalashaska Has Landed..

    Is Nyxus still on Christmas vacation? Lol. I’m surprised there hasn’t been any new updates recently, especially in regards to that silly “Chicken cap”.

      I’m sure Nyxus will be back next week ;).

          • turkishgamer35

    • turkishgamer35

      ground zeroes released on pc 11 days ago and people already doing crazy things with this short game can’t imagine TPP honestly always play metal gear games on playstation but maybe this time gonna play ps3/pc

      • Cesare Di Maio

        Take TPP on PS4, i’ll do the same for 100000% sure, i have GZ on PC just for this, while waiting TPP

      Thank you Fox Engine, non ordinary models should look weird, but NOT on Fox Engine.

  • Javier Sosa

    Hi, I want to ask if right now we can pass the savegame of the ps3 ground zeroes in a ps4. I’m going to buy a ps4 and want my data. Do I have to use ps plus to do it?

    • Invader_skoodge

      This. Nyxus might have the answer to that. I also have the game on PS3 and I figured I’d buy a PS4 when TPP comes out so I’m also curious about how the savegame would transfer. But if in your case is from GZ to GZ I think it might work with your same PSN account. I’m not sure anyone has ever tried it.

      • Javier Sosa

        I can’t find any information about this. I’ll do the try and then I’ll let you know. Thanks.

      • MrVux007

        I think it will work the same way as Diablo III….if you played the game on PS3,and then started to play it via PS4..your PSN account will fill in the blanks(save files) just by loggin in 🙂

        • Javier Sosa

          It didn’t work. I tried it today

          • MrVux007

        It didn’t work. I tried it today.

        • Invader_skoodge

          damn. that sucks. At least we know it doesn’t work now so other people know it too.

    • vic boss

      I have both versions of the game (Bought the ps3 version back when I didn’t have a ps4). Anyway I haven’t tried but I think you can’t pass the save data from ps3 to ps4 if its from GZ to GZ. I believe that what you guys are actually thinking about is the check of the save data for when TPP comes out. I’m pretty sure that only from a GZ PS3 to TPP PS4 it i’ll be the only way for the saves to work. Like you’ll have the prisoners you rescued from GZ in TPP, things like that.

      • Javier Sosa

        I tried it today. It didn’t work. Now I have to play all again. And lose my 120 soldiers. I’m selling the ps3. I can’t have it until tpp comes out

  • MichaelPayneV

    Just…Breathtaking!

      Shit man, is fuc*ing beautiful!!! I hope they are now testing the whole game. If they are I can totally see a March release date.

      • Guest

        deleted, update above.

      • MichaelPayneV

        “…fuc*ing beautiful!!!” heheh.

        But NO, don’t get your hopes up for a March Release, if something is going to be a March Release Date Reveal at GDC 2015.

        • vic boss

          Well I guess you’re right, I don’t want to get my hopes up cuz is Kojima, he may release the game in november 2015 for all we know, But the more I don’t want to get my hopes high, the more he teases something new. I still expect to see at least like an april-june release.

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well he is also working on a New Trailer, so maybe we get it on New Years Eve.

            1 more thing, Phantom Pain has like almost 150 missions, so it is a Summer Game, so the best time to release it is on June!

          • MrVux007

            im so happy i just want to cry….ever since i saw that Project Ogre picture in 2012 i knew this would be a great game….but not this great :_)

          • MichaelPayneV

            About the project ogre picture, it was real after all, is mentioning the Brain Damage and the implant of a Latest Technology device, which turned out to be his prosthetic arm.

            Wonder if Snake will loose anything else, like the Legs, and have them replaced with some jump legs.

          • Mr.Pony

            “I’m already a demon” so I guess he lost his soul too and maybe his sanity along the way

          • MichaelPayneV

            That’s a Metaphor.

          • Mr.Pony

            I know.

          • MichaelPayneV

            O.K.?

          • MrVux007

            well all i know that Big Boss will lose both of his legs and his left ear in Metal Gear 1 (msx game)…but before that i wouldnt know much

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

            you mean project omega.hes talking about project ogre!!!!!!!!!!!!1

          • MichaelPayneV

            Yeah, my bad, Project Omega is what i was talking about.

          • Dizz

            My god, how many trailers do we really need. 1 or 2 is plenty.. Hypetrain is already at maximum speed.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        they are testing it.said by kojima himself.

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      wtf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • MichaelPayneV

        The Night, how amazing the Game looks at night?

        • Mr.Pony

          GZ was so great at night, hope to see more like that.
          This is definitely not going to be the game we need but the game that all mgs fans deserve

          • MichaelPayneV

            I’m not fan of the GZ brightness, but i do love how it looked at Day, easily the Best Looking Game at Day, most realistic Sky and Lighting i have ever seen in a Video Game at day.

          • Mr.Pony

            GZ probably the best night stage i’ve ever seen in a game, brightness makes one uneasy, like even if you are in cover you never feel that safe because there’s always light and never black dark shadows to skulk around, unless you get to turn down the lights

          • MichaelPayneV

            Honestly Just Cause 2 has the best looking nights, better then GZ, but not better then GZ used to look at night (PAX 2012 Demo)

          • Mr.Pony

            It’s all about the ambiance for me. Just Cause 2…that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time

          • MichaelPayneV

            Well then you have to check it out, the Biggest Open World Game, big as 4 GTA V Maps combined, more exactly 400 square Miles.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          kojima is making a trailer!!!!!!!!!!!

          • MichaelPayneV

            I know.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          kojima is making a trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    • Big_Boss88

      I agree :D, can’t wait to see and play TPP during Night, with different weather effects too etc. Will be so beautiful!

      • im a dot

        I need this game. im dying from the wait more and more everyday

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      now there was full monn and half moon cycles and now this.mgsv is gonna be a masterpiece

      • MichaelPayneV

        Actually in all TPP Night Demos there was full moon, which makes it possible for TPP to not have Moon Cycles.

        • Le Guy who drowned quiet

          yep

          • MichaelPayneV

            And THAT concerns me.

            But is not necessary as is not GTA.

  • XIFF-5

    Ok, this is too much, LOL.
    This is the reason why I hate an MGS game on PC, I know it is fun indeed but come on, I don’t want MGS become a game for mods like GTA or Half-life or any other moded games. Makes the game looks cheap IMO :/
    Btw, Kaz looks pretty much like DavidBowie

    • MichaelPayneV

      No, it makes the Game really interesting to every Game, being able to play as ANYONE using the Wonderful Fox Engine What is your problem, if something modding ability would make the Game sell more, therefore bring Kojima more money, also giving the possibility for Game to be born from the Fox Engine

      Ex. Counter Strike was born from a Half Life MOD, wouldn’t you want to see a FPS Game like Counter Strike or a GTA Like Game in Fox Engine?

      Just think about it, think at the advantages.

      • Golgari

        No. It makes things just worse. Look. Dicking around is ok but this game’s magic is being lost if it is going to be a Mod Fest. People started to dick around with game files to know something about the game.
        This is not good for fans and especially Kojima.

        • XIFF-5

          totally agree, but who understands our view of point? smh…

          People just wanna break and mod every game they want just for fun and the game is slowly losing it’s magic and the way it was supposed to be, and even new players to the series will say “WTF is this buggy glitchy cheap game that you can simply make changes and mod by yourself and make everything is possible,flying, swap characters and much more.”

          IT IS MGS! NOT ANY FUCKING GAME! A GOTY GAME FOR MANY YEARS! FFS!

          Break any other game, except MGS plz.

          • From The Distant Future

            Modifications are far from all bad. I fail to fully understand and realize exactly how mods are bad for games. But I think I may have an idea of what both of you are trying to say. However, mods will not in any way, shape or form erase MGS’s “magic,” at least I don’t think it will and certainly not for me. To say such a thing is to underestimate the title itself I believe. I wonder if you two will still be saying what you guys are saying had the Jamais Vu and Déjà Vu missions been mods. Either way, Idk how this will effect you two if mods are implemented or not…

    • MrVux007

      one of the reasons why i will play it on PS4 only 🙂 (MGS is just to damn sacred to me)

    • Big_Boss88

  • 9Ocelot9
    • Big_Boss88

      I don’t know how to feel about this :D. I’ve never seen MGS with mods like this lol. Kinda cool but at the same time so weird… Even though I’ll be playing MGSV on PC, not sure will I try modding it, as I have always played MGS the way it is.

      Still, GZ and TPP on PC gives quite a lot of different possibilities to enhance the game. Will be interesting to see what players add to TPP in the future :).

  • Big_Boss88

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B57RdfDCYAALibj.jpg

    Oh my god, f*ck yeah :D! Now THIS is a reason to get hyped for ;)! Making a new trailer out of nowhere…it has to be something special! Lol I’m a bit late with this info it seems.

    Anyway, it will be super nuclear for sure.

    Btw first time I see article here with so many comments lol, Nyxus better come back soon XD.

    • vic boss

      I don’t know why but I don’t think kojima is making another trailer ( I hope I’m wrong). But anyways he is teasing a lot of pictures, something must be really going on.

      • MrVux007

        awww he is still so sad ….

      • Javier Sosa

        He is trying to give something for the fans because he is aware of the bad reception the chicken hat has. He received a lot of insults.

        • Big_Boss88

          Maybe it is red band trailer about Big Boss and the chicken hat.

      • Big_Boss88

        Yeah I might be totally wrong lol XD, but we’ll see. That image just game me a deja vu feeling of E3 2014, when he posted same kind of image when making Nuclear trailer. 😛

    • Venom_Sina

      Thanks for the info.but how do you know that he’s making a new trailer?maybe he’s editing some of the cut scenes of the game.I love to see a new trailer,but don’t get your hopes up.I haven’t forgotten the last time Kojima trolled us with kojima station.all of those hypes was for a “Chicken Cap”!!!what I’m saying is:”maybe it’s nothing,but we are making a big deal out of it!!!”just like what we did with release date and kojima station 31.when we do this,we are only torturing ourselves!!

      • Big_Boss88

        Hmm well actually I’m not 100% sure he is making a trailer ;D lol. But it’s what I assume when he post that mixing image, he did the same thing few days before E3 2014 trailer. But yeah, well whatever he does or shows us will be good (I hope)! XD

        Maybe I’m getting too excited for nothing, need to calm down :O.

        • im a dot

          I hope its for pax or something close if it is a trailer

  • Cesare Di Maio

    Model found, tho when he aim, the front grip act kinda weird, and the model is the same during Fox Engine Showcase, so its only the wet version

  • Big_Boss88

    I would love to see video game orchestras like these live someday, performing songs of MGS or FF <3… would be quite awesome.

    Not Cynthia Harrel but still pretty good xD !

    • Invader_skoodge

      So much epicness brings tears to my eyes. It’s amazing.

      • Big_Boss88

        Yeah :D, I hope to see Sins of the Father live someday too and other TPP songs, which I can’t wait to hear :).

  • Big_Boss88

    Might as well post little more things, while waiting for Nyxus.

    This NEEDS to be played at some point in TPP . It was after all the song Kojima originally wanted to start MGSV with, but didn’t fit the tone of GZ.

    Don’t care when it plays in TPP, be it at the start, after that “We are Diamond Dogs” speech, when riding that badass motorcycle while smokin’ cigar or something :).

    • solidsnack

      i’ve been really really impressed with kojima’s music choices for the trailers and such. maybe if there’s a moment of success or a more upbeat part in the phantom pain this will play i feel like it’s a happy song 🙂

          • im a dot

            yeah the xof/us one is probley a gibberish named mission file like kojima

          • Cesare Di Maio

          • Cesare Di Maio

            i prefer the MSF one 40 times, but since modding is a way to wait that game, i want to have the same Heli that BB has in TPP 😛

    Even though we're still waiting for TPP release date, I think we can have some good memories of all these crazy theories about the plot/characters and other stuff we have written ;), when we get to play TPP.

    Anyway, lets stay super excited for 2015 as it's shaping up one of the best years in gaming or maybe the best :D! Now that it's almost 2015, I can feel TPP release being close xD !

            Yes that’s the one ;). It’s really great and fun anime style game, with many characters. So far better than DR1 imo (haven’t finished yet xD ).

            I prefer to play it in Japanese voice actors with English subtitles and I’m happy they gave the option to change it again ;).

    Any other games your excited besides The Phantom Pain?

    For me Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, Tekken 7, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, DmC Definitive Edition, Xenoblade Chronicles, Clannad Kickstarter, Grisaia Trilogy Kickstarter(probably 2016 for the 2nd and 3rd games), Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.

    Tales of Zesteria, i’ll probably wait for PS4 version. Persona 5 will wait on an updated version with Vita is they released that version. Uncharted 4 might get a delay though :

      Right back at ya Prince :). Hell yeah there’s a lot of games I’m looking forward to :D, like Bloodborne, Order:1886, The Witcher 3, UC4, Arkham Knight, MK X, Tekken 7, Mad Max, Dying Light, No Man’s Sky, Star Citizen, RE1, RE:Revelations 2 (I hope it’s good), Persona 5, Danganronpa 3 (if it comes 2015) and FFXV(2015 hopefully).

      I’m sure I forgot many games. The Phantom Pain is of course getting the spotlight of the year and universe.

      My wallet’s gonna get drained, but it’s totally worth it <(^O^^O^)>!

      • PrinceHeir

        Damn forgot about Revelations 2!! Barry MF!!!!

    • From The Distant Future

      Hmm… The games I’ll be suggesting as my most anticipated are the games that have been officially announced as a 2015 release.

      From least to greatest most anticipated games (subject to change):

      10. HALO 5: GUARDIANS

      Halo 5: Guardians is an upcoming Halo game announced during Microsoft’s E3 2013 presentation as the second chapter in the John-117 storyline of the Reclaimer Saga and the sequel to Halo 4. Master Chief’s saga isn’t quite over it seems, but how his story continues is still a bit up in the air. In fact, the main piece of artwork released by developer 343 Industries proudly shows a Spartan who is NOT the Chief. What does this mean for Halo 5: Guardians? Well, we don’t really know.

      What we do know is that he’s a completely new character, and that Halo 5 will run on an entirely new engine. We know that it’s a new chapter in Master Chief’s life, and that this will start a new status quo for the series. Hey, that’s a lot of “news.” Expect more of it as we get closer to the game’s fall 2015 release.

      —————————————————————————————————-
      9. RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER

      Square Enix’s Tomb Raider from 2013 was a solid reboot of a dying franchise, somehow managing to make Lara Croft and her adventures relevant again. Rise of the Tomb Raider is the sequel, set after Lara’s journey of discovery and survival in the last game.

      There hasn’t been much in the way of official information just yet, although Crystal Dynamics have promised that they’ll be “putting the tombs back in Tomb Raider”. If the polished gameplay and great looks of the first game could be combined with some classic tomb environments, then Rise of the Tomb Raider might be exactly what fans have been waiting for.

      —————————————————————————————————-
      8. FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0

      One of my most highly anticipated role-playing games of all time, FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 features the immersive story, memorable characters, and production values the series is known for, players are transported to Orience, a dark, FINAL FANTASY world governed by crystals and torn apart by war, as the nation’s youth are swept into its conflict.

      Step into the fray as Class Zero, a group of fourteen students from an elite military academy whose country is attacked by an aggressive neighboring Empire. Using the powerful abilities and magic of all fourteen characters in fast-paced action RPG combat, players must face the brutality and injustices of war to uncover the secrets of its genesis.

      —————————————————————————————————-
      7. ASSASSIN’s CREED VICTORY
      There’s not much concrete info on Assassin’s Creed Victory yet, because, well, we’re totally not supposed to know anything about it yet. The first information was leaked, giving away the next AC’s setting and a few extra gameplay elements to mull over. Victory is set in Victorian London – y’know, the time when England was going through the Industrial Revolution, Jack the Ripper was running amok, and people wore really cool hats.

      From the leaked screens, the world looks massive and beautiful. Historic landmarks have already shown face, with Big Ben being displayed in one shot’s background. But with the change in setting there seems to be some additions to the gameplay. Vendors offer disguises, the assassin can swing from a rope (possibly a grappling hook), and there will be occasional battles atop moving carriages. I can’t help but be excited for the chance to walk the streets of London in the next Assassin’s Creed.

      —————————————————————————————————-
      6. STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT
      DICE is currently working on the next Battlefront entry to release in time with the upcoming 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode VII). Whether fighting through blaster-wielding troops, or piloting your favorite Star Wars combat vehicles like Snowspeeders, Speeder Bikes, and AT–ST’s – Star Wars Battlefront puts you at the center of the galactic conflict! “We at DICE are hard at work creating the best Star Wars shooter of all time” – Niklas Fegraeus

      5. TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION

      Even though we still don’t know that much about The Division, what we have seen of the game makes it look super cool. The game looks absolutely beautiful, making use of Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine to create the massive city that players will be able to explore as they hunt for new gear and take down enemy groups.

      The shooter MMO’s demos at the last two E3s seem to emphasize communication between three-man squads, suggesting that teams will have to work together tactically to survive–and coming from games like Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon, I wouldn’t expect much less. Not only will players have to be aware of the NPC presence in the game world, other players can also show up at any moment to ruin your day. How is still unclear, but a little bit of PvP is always welcome.

      4. BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT

      Rocksteady shook the world when they released Batman: Arkham Asylum to critical and commercial acclaim. Gamers loved the satisfying combat and bosses, story and setting and the detective minigames. Arkham Asylum made you actually feel like Batman for the first time ever. Now, after two games, the same studio is ready to close out the series with Arkham Knight. Much like Halo 5 telling a new chapter in Master Chief’s life, Batman: Arkham Knight is a new chapter in Bruce Wayne’s life–the final one from developer Rocksteady, in fact. This entry takes place much later in Batman’s life, and that means a lot of changes.

      First up, the goddamn Batmobile–it’s sleek, it’s speedy, and it can transform into a tank. Hell yeah. Second, Rocksteady has created an original villain for this trilogy-ender, the Arkham Knight. His identity is unknown, his motivations are unknown. And he’s joined by the expected rogues gallery: Scarecrow, Riddler, Penguin, and Two-Face will all be making their villainous return–and that’s only the lineup we know. There will be a lot more villainy and Bat-punchy action to see before the game’s full release.

      3. THE WITCHER 3: WILD HUNT

      The choice heavy storytelling of the Witcher series finally moves into a completely open world in which, it seems, anything can happen. The amnesiac Witcher, Geralt of Rivia (2nd greatest game character after Big Boss), is on a mission to recover his lost memories leading him to seek out the Wild Hunt, a spectral cavalcade of wandering ghosts. Sounds mysterious and cool already, right? Well, we haven’t even touched on how the gameplay works yet.

      As a witcher, you have skills not unlike a medieval jedi knight. You can force push enemies to the ground, mind trick villagers to gain information about a quest, and swing a sword like nobody’s business. On top of all of the action of cutting the heads off dangerous monsters for money, you’ll also choose the fate of the local populace. Villages will rise and fall according to your actions, so choose your path wisely.

      2. UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF’S END

      Hot on the heels of my (& many others) 2013 Game of the Year, The Last of Us, Naughty Dog is returning to its other big franchise. Nathan Drake has been put through the wringer over the course of his previous adventures, but even retiring from his treasure-hunting ways isn’t enough to keep him out of danger. Several years after his last adventure, retired fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, is forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. His greatest adventure will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.

      I’m eager to see what The Last of Us (best game ever) directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley can do with the franchise.

      1. METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN

      I mean, what can I say that haven’t been said already? All of us here- we all know this is our number one. The greatest franchise in all of gaming. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the first open-world game to sport the stealthiness of Kojima’s epic tale and likely one of the best stories ever told, but it’s more than just a new setting. It’s a modified Snake in a totally different world.

      The Phantom Pain’s open-world setting means Snake will spend time riding on horseback (which he can totally do stealthily!) and driving vehicles like never before. He’s also just woken up from a nine-year coma–with a cybernetic arm! New loads of mechanics and new abilities for Snake mean The Phantom Pain will really spice up the MGS world unlike nothing you’ve ever seen. The highly anticipated Metal Gear Online makes a return stronger and better than the last two! And don’t forget you can airlift not only goats but among many other things as well! Should I play Ground Zeroes again a day before Phantom Pain or nine days before Phantom Pain? xD

      Honorable Mention: FINAL FANTASY XV

      Looking to get your fill of fauxhawks, belts, and unpredictable storylines? Look no further. Final Fantasy XV is coming, and from what we’ve seen so far, it’s looking quite impressive. Not only do we get to bask in the glory of the best-looking character models yet – there’s also the combat system which moves from the previously seen, turn-based combat to real-time battles. You’ll have complete control over your character as you hack and slash monsters with blades that seem to phase in and out of existence.

      The story takes place in a modern-esque world in which people drive high-end convertibles and apparently take hours to style their hairdo. Our hero is the young Prince Noctis of the kingdom of Lucis, who gets caught up in his country’s cold war with their rival Nibleheim. It seems the two countries had a peace treaty over control of the world’s mystic crystals, but what’s a Final Fantasy story without a bit of betrayal? The bad guys make a play for power, and it’s up to Noctis and his ragtag team to save the world. Sounds like the start of another memorable entry in the franchise.
