MGSV info from E3: weapon customization, playable female soldiers, changeable outfits for buddies

At the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain booth on the E3 show floor, the developers have been giving gameplay demonstrations of the game, showing not only missions, but also some of the customization options available. Below is a summary of the impressions of reddit user Risev, who attended the show.

MGSV-E3-2015-Mission-Select

  • Microtransactions have been confirmed, but they won’t affect the game in a negative way, and are only there for those who want to save time.
  • The photos in the helicopter are moments that you can capture and attach to the wall yourself.
  • The selection menu is more or less the same as in Ground Zeroes, but now you can also fully customize your loadout.
  • You can customize Mother Base (color, custom emblems), Snake himself (outfit, weapons buddies) and your weapons (including scopes, colors, barrels, weapon parts and under-barrels).

MGSV-E3-2015-Mother-Base-CustomizationMGSV-Booth-E3-2015-Weapon-CustomizationMGSV-E3-2015-Weapon-Customization

  • The loadout section also includes a face option.
  • You can play as someone other than Snake, including female soldiers.
  • Buddies can also be customized with a different outfit, so if you want, you can swap Quiet’s ‘naked camo’ for something else.

MGSV-E3-2015-Character-Select

MGSV-E3-2015-Vehicle-Select

  • Aside from specific missions, you can also choose ‘freeroam’ and select a drop location.
  • Snake can also pet Diamond Dog, his wolf companion.
  • DD will detect enemies, and can be given the command to attack or to wait.
  • At the mission start location, you will find a machine where you can plug in the iDroid to download the mission data. This will make the mission begin, with the names of the characters and developers popping up on screen. You can keep playing while this happens.
  • The D-Walker is very fast, has a lot of firepower and protects the player from attacks. You can also use it for stealth take-downs. It can also be ordered to do things like scouting the area, and even has its own robotic voice.
  • Enemies had adapted to Snake’s attack methods by equipping themselves with shields and heavy armor, and they can also use things like inflatable decoys themselves.
  • The chopper Snake called in could fire missiles, and there’s also a gun turret Snake can use while flying away.
  • At the end of the mission, Snake attached a Kojima Productions logo to his chest.

Some more on the microtransaction from Japanese website Gamespark (translated by JunkerHQ):
Everything can be unlocked without them, they are just there for those who want stuff faster. For example, using microtransactions weapons can be developed for less. More details, including pricing, will be revealed at a later date.

JunkerHQ: D-Walker can be customized for stealth or combat. While riding it, Snake can CQC guards and carry their bodies around.

Update: someone uploaded a video of the beginning of the presentation, showing mission preparations. Check it out below:

Konami will have the gameplay demonstration available online later, promising the date and time will be announced ‘soon.

  • Nemis94

    finally some solid information about gameplay! TPP for Game of Year!!

    • Lewis

      Hope we get something else SOLID.

      • Nemis94

        definitely some solid but much more liquid ^^

  • Diego Guedes

    Awesome pics. It’s great to see that the weapons customization option is finally back. I loved to mod the M4A1 in MGS4. o/

      • Diego Guedes

        Yeah. I remember reading about it here and listening to Yongyea saying the same thing.
        It’s awesome. The game gets more unique and the weapons can feel and look different. Yoji surely did a great job.
        I hope these two never fight or anything. They should open their own studio called Koji-Yoji after they leave Konami o/ LOL

  • BlankAzure

    wow actually pretty excited to play other soldiers thats good to know and love the weapon customization all this is great news!

  • Bramdeman

    We neeeeed a gameplay video!

  • Man… I can’t live on without this much longer.

  • Cosima Caminades

    Hopefully the S rank combat unit soldiers are as good as in PW.

  • ddmaster

    Wow D-Walker has its own voice…Jarvis comes to mind lol >o<

  • Alberto Sánchez

    Freeroam mode, here I go!

  • Andrea Feletti

    Seems like mgsv is the result of the experience the team made with mgs4 (guns customization) and pw (the difficulty depends on player’s actions)

  • Ol’ Jack Burton

    “Striker Mammoth” sounds like a Megaman X boss.

  • LiquidCampbell

    Where’s the gameplay? D:

  • kirtanloorii

    I’ve heard everything I need to hear. Just waiting for September.

  • Golgari

    Gameplay wise for me it’s the best game of this year period.
    Sorry Witcher 3, Batman and Fallout 4.

    • Mauricio Acosta

      As much as I love Fallout, MGSV will take all the cookies. How can it not! Man I can’t wait! My MGS marathon will commence soon before I get my greasy paws on this!

    • Franky

      MGS5 is sooo many levels above Fallout.

  • VenomSnake1974

    Freeroam ftw! The waitin’ is gonna kill me…

  • !!! WoooooOOOOOOoooooOOOoooo !!!

  • kirtanloorii

    I wonder. When we deploy with our vehicles, do we have to remember to re-extract the vehicle via fulton or will that happen automatically after the mission?

    • Golgari

      One preview said that there was a situation where player had no choice but to fly away through the helicopter and he saw his horse on the ground and it fultoned itself automatically when Snake was on board.

      • kirtanloorii

        lol. okay then.

  • grapes9h5

    Wow, so happy to see the weapon customization, and the all the load out options. Really really cool.

      • Franky

        i dont want the dog to stay alone with Miller at the base. He seems like the type of dude to pinch your puppy when you´re not looking for a second.

    I think not right?…

    • WhatTheJuicay

      I thought the same app was supposed to carry over to TPP

  • LiquidCampbell

    Quiet theme music!!! the video is not the best but..it’s Quiet Theme Guys!

    • Andrea Feletti

      So in e3 2013 trailer there are 2 songs: quiet’s theme and sins of the father

      • Nacrois

        That’s right, Donna said it a while ago.

    • Gatsu

      OOoooohhh beautiful <3 ! QUIEEEEEET!
      Thanks for sharing :).

      • Shalashaska

        beautiful. Yea bro. THATS the word 😉

    • Jake Barnes

      Somehow, I want this song to play over the title screen.

  • WhatTheJuicay

    No wonder d Walker is classified as a buddy and not a vehicle

  • Cipher

    ” Buddies can also be customized with a different outfit, so if you want, you can swap Quiet’s ‘naked camo’ for something else.”

    this is good news. and should end the controversy.
    I for one, thought Quiet’s outfit was a bit too much .

    • PsychoMantis18

      Why not play it first and then decide? There’s reasoning behind her skimpy appearance

      • Ravenous

        Or so they say Oo
        I thought it might be that her powers were fueled by sunlight or something, or that clothing made it more difficult to use her powers, but that idea faceplanted when we saw the stealthy Skulls, doing the same kind of thing in full body-armor.

        Might be some kind of trauma or something maybe?

        • PsychoMantis18

          Could be. Wait and see

    • Javier Cho

      well knowing kojima the alternative costume can be more lewd than normal clothing lol ,

    • cklambo

      high school uniform confirmed!

  • LOL, can’t wait to play the game with Final Countdown out loud, the 80’s theme of my childhood! 😀

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      Not burke

      • :shrug:
        I’m just a messenger, no idea, to be honest.

        Have a nice day 🙂

    • Cobra Commander

      What!!!??? Europe’s The Final Countdown is in game?
      If so that’s BAD ASS!! I remember listening to that since I was 7.
      MGSV definitely has some great music choices.
      Might even go so far to say MGSV’s music is better than GTAV’s.

  • Gatsu

    Jesus christ how can someone make such an incredible game.

  • Golgari

    I need gameplay, right now!

    • Gatsu

      YES, can’t take it anymore ;O !…

  • Tong Ninja

    Wow, the gameplay demo so far looks graphically better than the one last year. 😀
    I’m happy Kojima and his team took time to do that as well as squash bugs.

  • Cartmangus

    I am profoundly disappointed by the inclusion of micro-transactions in this game. And the “excuse” given by Konami is a non-excuse. “They’re optional” since when have micro-transactions not been optional? Frustrating how pathetic that excuse is. The simple fact that they’re even in the game makes everything about base building feel more cynical to me, it sadly won’t even matter how it’s designed.

    Whenever I’m grinding away for Mother Base resources it’ll linger in the back of my head that they want the player to pay for these resources and skip the grinding part, I can’t even fucking articulate how horrible I find this and I sincerely hope the fanbase don’t accept this with open arms. Base building just went from simply being a part of this game and story, to something cynical.

    Fuck Konami for doing this, seriously. It’ll no doubt impact how I feel about the whole Mother Base / Resource part of the game.

    • Javier Cho

      Well.. if is like PW i dont mind , i mean you can speed up the process by getting better soldiers ,beside when you create weapons in PW you have to wait too , you have to do alot of missions if you dont have a good team in mother base to build quick those weapons.

      the micro-transaction is not a big deal to me , because while i wait for the weapon to be done i will be busy playing the main/side missions

      • Cartmangus

        Please don’t excuse poor design choices to feel better about a game series you love. It’s okay to criticize things you like. If people start excusing this kind of garbage, you’ll see it show up in more and more games, until video games starts looking like cellphone games.

        • PsychoMantis18

          You’re spot on. I want to believe i’ll be able to ignore it but it will certainly taint the overall experience

          • Ravenous

            How exactly? The info we have now says that it will be a pay-if-impatient system, I read it like it’s there for those who have no patience, wouldn’t appreciate the game anyways, or simply pay for faster access…
            How on earth will that taint anything other than an option in the UI?

            One other way to see this is that there are no cheats in the game, except if you pay, to get earlier access to stuff

          • PsychoMantis18

            Because it hurts the integrity of the game. It cheapens the game in order to further line the pockets of greedy cock-suckers like Konami. I would assume that it was not Kojima’s idea

        • Javier Cho

          im not excusing them , i agree is a shitty thing to do ,but is not going to kill my joy of playing the game anyway ,beside something bad mgs always do ,you always end up only using the tranqulizer gun and nothing else ,in PW i have all the weapons and i never used the shotguns ,smg , machine gun , the only weapon i use was the gustav and the fulton rocket launcher… to me lethal weapons in MGS…. are most of the time pointless..

      • Mini gear

        If it’s like pw it’s fine, but not real time over 2 hours, in game hours are fine because it’s actually happening in the game

      • Gatsu

        These are my thoughts, although I understand what Cartmangus say and hate micro-transactions to be added into games too. But as you said Javier, that’s what I’ll do, other stuff in the mean time like in PW. Hopefully they don’t purposely make some developing stuff super long, certain games do that so more and more people wanna buy “credits” to unlock stuff faster.

        But nothing will stop me from enjoying TPP, I will take my sweet time with MB and ignore any of the micro-trans. It won’t be fun to use them.

    • Mini gear

      I hate that Konami are trying to make base building “pay to play” they probley made waiting times huge just for that, I’ll burn konami if I need to wait over a whole real day to build something

    • Doubtful anyone will accept it with open arms, but what can we do? Hopefully it’s just how they would have made if the micro transactions weren’t there, and they are merely a shortcut.

      • Cartmangus

        I don’t know if there’s much that can be done, the game is launching is 2 months and Konami clearly doesn’t care all that much about the triple a games anymore. It’s just the thought of fans being completely apathetic towards this that depresses me, whether you can make a change or not, rolling over and just taking it, is no good for the future of gaming. This shouldn’t ever become accepted or expected, and sometimes it feels like the latter has already happened.

        I’m with you in that I hope Kojima was nice enough to design the Mother Base in a way where it feels satisfying and not frustrating so as to lead you to spend money on it. But like I said, unfortunately for me, the simple fact that it is even in there affects how I feel about this system as a whole, it just feels dirty, it feels less like a part of the game they want you to partake in, and more like a scummy way to earn more money off players. I’m not saying this completely ruins that part of the game for me, but it will definitely lessen my enjoyment of it, that is for sure.

        • What we can do is not buying these microtransactions, which is probably what most people here will do. 🙂

          • Gatsu

            Indeed Boss :), I ain’t gonna touch them. No way.

          • ddmaster

            Got that right. And as to what Cartmangus said above, don’t let something like this Konami corporate bs get in the way of the game. Just enjoy it as you normally would. After all it’s what BB Kojima-San would want. If nothing else lets enjoy it for him.

          • Tibor

            let’s help Diamond Dogs (Metal Gear Informer), under the lead of Big Boss (Nyxus) destroy the evil Zero (KONAMI)

        • No Place For Hayter

          Agreed. I’m not even remotely stupid or retarded enough to ever buy, like, or condone micro-transactions. And in my book anyone who does not pick a side and is simply apathetic to micro-transactions and simply looks at it from a stupid screwed business stand point (every one who even tries to defend it or talk about it from a business stand point is stupid, just as stupid as people like Konami, practices like these DO NOT SELL MORE AND GET YOU MORE MONEY, it hurts your customers and your business in the long run, anybody who things it helps in anyway for a business does not truly understand business or how to maintain one) if just as naive, blind, and stupid as those who defend it, if someone is not willing to out right say how bad these things are, then they are part of the problem, and are quite frankly blind to the world around them and how it runs.

    • willworkfortoys

      I understand people not wanting to pay money for something exclusive but people are griping (welcome to the internet, I know) before we even know exactly how they’re going to work. I for one welcome them if it means I can expedite the game to get the full experience. I don’t have a lot of time to play games anymore and the possibility that I could get more for my time spent (even if it means a little extra money spent) is great. If it means there are items you can only get for forking over extra dough I can understand the outrage a little more but I can’t fault a business for making money. I can on the other hand stop supporting them.

      • Cartmangus

        This is barely an excuse, and a terrible one at that. You’re quick to bring up time investment, maybe if grinding something takes so long that people with lives literally don’t have the time to do it, there’s a problem with the design itself? Lets assume that it is not, why are you paying to speed it up? Remember cheat codes? You’re effectively paying developers with real money for fake video game money in return.

        Wouldn’t it be far more convenient if they put in a cheat code that gave you infinite R&D points in the game? What’s your counter argument to that? That it is expecting too much out of developers? Because it really, really isn’t.

        As much as I dislike people being apathetic about micro-transactions, I can understand that, but people defending and excusing it, that I will never understand.

        • willworkfortoys

          I don’t think grinding necessarily means there is a problem in and of itself. I thought PW worked fine and I like that I could keep playing just to wait for upgrades as it essentially increased the play value of the game for me (and I had time to grind). You’re assuming that the micro-transactions are breaking the upgrade times ahead of time when we have no idea currently and you’ll assume it takes longer anyway because you’ll assume they’re coaxing you to pay for expediency. Just because the cable company provides me the option to add premium channels it doesn’t lessen the quality of the normal subscription. It provides me with options I can take or leave as I see fit.

          And yes, I’m paying real money for fake video game money in return. The second I buy the game I’m paying real money for video game guns, video game geography, video game money, video game people, etc. My only gripe would be that they put money into something like a prothetic scaled model in liue of more content that actually adds to the game. I’d much rather spend money on game expansion than exclusive toys. A cheat code would be great but so would all the additional content I want (not that I’m entitled to) that the developers could make. I know cheat codes to unlock would be easy for developers but I understand it is a business and if they can charge (and people will pay) to unlock items then they will. Sure, I’d like the option free but I’d like a PS4 and the game free too. And, the option to add extra things to pay for means that they can afford to pay someone to continue to develop items that weren’t available at the games release meaning potential future add-ons.

          • Cartmangus

            Grinding doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a flaw to the game design, I agree, but if the game is in any way designed around the use of micro-transactions that is where I take issue with it, because it no longer feels as an intended experience of the game, but rather a cynical design to draw in more money. And I’m saying this as someone that is not a fan of grinding, keep that in mind. You may not have the time for it but I’ve never been interested in it, especially not in MGS, nor was I in PW and I still think it’s absolute horse shit that they’re taking money to speed that part of the process up, in fact it makes the fact that there’s grinding in the game worse.

            I think your comparisons here are piss poor, free cheat codes and free hardware are not comparable, it’s not one or the other. There is no reason you should be paying developers to get money inside of their game world but there are plenty of reasons you should be paying them for their game and hardware. You have some warped sense of what you’re entitled to if you genuinely feel like it’s totes cool that developers are now charging you for cheat codes. Great that you understand it’s a business, but unless you’re a suit at Konami I don’t see any reason to defend/excuse it. I somehow doubt you’d be defending this if it was any other series than one you love.

            As far as my assumptions go, all I’m saying is how they make me feel about the game and the work I’m doing in it. It almost doesn’t matter how it is designed when you have that cloud over it. Certainly if it is designed with making a pleasant experience for the player, it’ll manage to be enjoyable even with their inclusion but that part of the game will always be tainted for me. Like I’ve pointed out in a different reply, it doesn’t outright ruin that part of the game for me, but it changes how I feel about it regardless of how it is handled because it becomes this cynical way for developers to get money out of you rather than just something for you to play around with.

            But you know what, at a certain point we’re just going around in circles, if you’re cool with this design philosophy, good for you.. I guess. I certainly am not and I’m not interested in excusing it either.

        • Shalashaska

          lol finally with the same points as mine

      • matttt

        Agree, especially since it doesn’t affect multiplayer and as long as it isn’t some kind of exclusive content that radically alters gameplay or add unique content, these kinds of things only affect people who purchase them. If other people buy something to make their single-player game easier for them it doesn’t affect me at all since my game experience is completely unconnected to it. It’s not like paid content hasn’t existed before either, with campaign//level/map packs and other purchasable upgrades having existed since the 90’s. It’s just that the current kneejerk reaction is that day-one special content is developers exploiting gamers.

      • Shalashaska

        Buddy. If you didnt enough time to get a futo or sultan or a fighter jet in gta 5.. would you pay for it?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, yeah…. Yeah, it really sucks, I could right essays on how much I hate microtransactions and why, but I’m just going to say I agree with you.

      But this also makes me glad that Kojima is leaving MGS and Konami, if Konami was able to kick Kojima out and still stick these in the game. I mean honestly how much did Konami have to fight in order to get these useless things that will only infurate and piss off most people, Konami fought to put these in the game, think about that. I’m so glad Kojima is out of there.

    • Shalashaska

      Finally. The worst bit is that almost every fanboy is ok with this. its not fine. people gotta research and see how these OPTIONAL mtransactions effect the game. The devs are forced to tweak the gameplay in order to make these micro transactions look swweter. And THAT IS TAINT On THE GAME NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF mtransaction it is.

  • Golgari

    Guys, something crazy is going on right now at Konami. First of all the demo at MGSV ends with Kojima Productions logo but then… Kojima retweeted THIS:

    http://i.imgur.com/nt4YRfe.png

    Son Of The Motherduck!

    • Mr.Pony

      For this to happen some big company had to make an “offer you can’t refuse” to Konami in order to get the rights of development (I’m looking at you Sony). I’m still waiting for that to happen

      • MrVux007

        yep me to….hope is the last thing that dies out

      • Яков Штеффен

      Son of a Boss ! It can’t be happening after all, or can it :O !?…

    • Javier Cho

      oh please be real … please P.T we need you!

    • Shalashaska

      just because he retweeted it doeant mean much tbh. All it could mean is that hd wants it to. And will konami give their only surviving non mgs franchise to other people.. yeaa righttt…I see A merger at Max.

  • I was getting into the video…then it stopped 🙁

  • Old Liquid

    This game… This fucking game!

    Can I freeze myself until Sept. 1st & survive like Eric Cartman? The wait is unbearable.

  • I can already see someone making a Quiet nude mod for pc…

    • Ravenous

      What, not ten seconds after PC-version was announced? XD

    • Javier Cho

      Well modders cant dissapoint me , i want naked snake to be… naked ,just to laugh my ass off seeing big boss naked in mother base

      • Walk to Kaz in a box and then surprise him

    • MichaelPayneV

      Knowing Kojima, is probably an unlockable, secret unlockable.

  • Vonkronberg

    Is there any chance that the chopper could launch a napalm strike in the jungles of Africa?

  • Cobra Commander

    The weapon customization is just as I said it would be, very The 40th Day-ish.
    This pleases me very much. With all the cool weapons and gadgets, I’m going to have a hard time keeping it stealth.

    On a side note, anyone know what happened with the MGO info we were supposed to get yesterday?
    Back when everyone was doing their gameplay sessions in L.A., they said MGO info would be incoming on June 16th.
    Does anyone know what happened with that?

  • J_muse72

    My affinity level with Quiet will be sky high!

  • MrVux007

    thats a big ass TV..it kinda reminds me of 4k one

  • kirtanloorii

    I personally believe that the reason Quiet’s uniform is so light is because she represents a blank canvas for the player to customize. Big Boss started as Naked Snake. Who’s to say that Quiet doesn’t start as Naked Quiet?

    • Javier Cho

      at least the puritans and moral crusaders are going to stop whining now that the game let you customize her clothes , but… i wonder how they will react to quiet back-story maybe is dumb and dull or good and “controversial ” . who knows :p

  • BOBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB

    Playable female characters? Awesome! This makes me optimistic this option will be at the launch of MGO3.

  • Batzi

    Man this game can’t get any better!

  • korruption

    I wonder if base morale with Quiet will improve as your affinity with her improves? For instance, maybe when you max it out, you can have her do pole dances to 80s music to increase morale! XD

    • Javier Cho

      or maybe she will dance at some j-pop , i hear you can dress her ,i hope there is some funny outfit for her ,:P

      • korruption

        Trust in Kojima. =D

          if big boss can have chicken hat /eggshell hats ,then maybe quiet can have something like that too , cat ears ? or chicken/eggshell hat too 😛

  • Gatsu

    I love that mission prep screen, gun custom and to be able to play as other characters too ;)! And now that Quiet can be customized, maybe the rage of her outfit will stop. Also I love the option to choose mission start time, oh hell I LOVE ALL THINGS RELATED TO TPP! Kojimaaaaaaaaaa I need my sweet game …. All this info and trailers has nuked my brains, but wanna see gameplay demo!

    Btw I was thinking of that epic trailer all day long lol. Brothers, that scene where Eli/Liquid is chasing Big Boss in the Metal Gear…it gives me the feels ;D. Imagine us fighting him in open world Boss fight area, after Big Boss barely escapes from him first omfg …will be SO LEGENDARY!

      Being a father must be hard for big boss :p

      • Gatsu

        LOL yeah xD…better teach that brat some manners a little more. It seems knife near the head wasn’t enough… >:P

        Big Boss: “Hey, Eli! My boy, get down from there, it’s dangerous to use that machine!”
        Eli: “Yeeehaaaa, this is fun and much easier than I thought. I will crush you, father! DIEEEEE!
        Big Boss: “Oh hell no >:O !…”

        • muaddib

          reminding me of mgs1
          “Fatheeeeeer! I’m afraid i can’t let you get past here! Dieee!”

        • Javier Cho

          “go to your room ! ”
          “no! ”

    • korruption

      He’s really gotta boost (trusted!) security in that hanger. O.o;

    • MichaelPayneV

      Like “Rex Boss Fight” meets “The End Boss Fight” stunning the Metal Gear, the running from it in a car to ambush it minutes later.

      Oh Kojima,…I mean Oh God, that already sounds amazing!

  • VenomSnake1974

    Dunno about you guys, but I’m not gonna use micro-transactions. I guess it’s a possible reason for the Kojima-Konami thing, cause I bet Kojima didn’t want to include this sad feature. Konami can rot, for what I care; I’m gonna build my motherbase with my own forces. Long live Kojima-san, the Stanley Kubrick of videogames!

    • No Place For Hayter

      Yeah, frick micro-transactions, I hope that the option is small and not noticed, the last nail in the literal coffin for me would be to have the game shove it in my face “DO YOU WANT THIS ENTIRELY OPTIONAL MICRO-TRANSACTION TO FINISH THAT INSTANTLY?”.

    • Mini gear

      maybe if no one buys a microtransaction thell parch them out?

      • VenomSnake1974

        I really hope so…

  • Alex Lopez Manriquez

    first thing I will do is find those music tapes!!!!

  • H’m

    I knew this was gonna be good, but sweet holy jeezuz.. the ammount of options are freaking amazing, anyone know of any more of off-screen footage..

    ps.. finally got to add quiet to my collection, all i need is playarts dd and the replica in the collectors and im full 🙂

    • muaddib

      i’ll admit: i’m afraid of all of this.
      2complex4me

    • muaddib

      also, nice collection. someday i’ll try to buy this hot toys’ big boss (the prices for that are really good, the equivalent for an play arts)

      • H’m

        thanks, i love my playarts figures, but BIG SIGHHHH… i missed out on the playarts mgs1 snake figure so everything in my collection is big boss, plus the hot toys figure is really detailed, not a huge fan of the outfit, would have preferred tiger camo but cant complain, iv been considering the boss for a while now but i just cant decide as her face looks a lil off in my opinion, cheers.. 🙂

        • muaddib

          well, nobody likes that sneaking suit from mgs3.
          actually i like that. maybe it’s my shittaste

  • muaddib

    please kojima, make room for, i don’t know, 100 costum songs (like in gz, there was 10 songs).
    i wanna use top gun anthem for my chopper, and shoot people at night listening to safety dance

    • H’m

      i wanna ( sounds silly bit i loveee it ) play the orig metal gear solid 2-3-4 soundtracks while playing for that true mgs solid theme 🙂

      • muaddib

        i used encounter and best is yet to come for the deja vu mission (these were not included in the game, but my hd).

  • No Place For Hayter

    As if there wasn’t enough disrespect, Konami has to go and sour literally the entire game by having micro-transactions forced in, I thought I could enjoy TPP free from garbage like that, but instead it will be there the entire time I play the game, yeah awesome great, thanks konami, now that you have permanently screwed with TPP in its entirety. The best we can hope for is some mod for the PC that pulls every trace of it from the game, but that leaves us console players bent over the barrel and stuck with it.

    • muaddib

      the bad thing is the mother base invasion.
      i never liked online games (like call of duty, mobas, and even counter strike), but mgo3 looks pretty good and i’ll start this from the very bottom (day one edition)
      micro transactions will fuck up things a little bit for those who don’t use vs. those who use

      • No Place For Hayter

        Yeah, god didn’t think of that, man that blows. It’s like throwing a rotten apple into a cart of golden apples, you love and enjoy the golden apples but it is impossible to ignore the one rotten apple that stands out among the rest.

        I also don’t like online games or online portions of games, even games with great co-op or multiplayer I don’t like.

        • muaddib

          i wanna play the single player of mgsv in online (mother base invasion), but the micro transactions thing keeps annoying me. will i keep the online turned on or off? will there be mb invasions in offline mode?
          shit, i wanna be invaded by some random dude and play “we’re not gonna take it” or “push it to the limit” in those speakers that will be in the game

      • H’m

        regarding invasions im sure there will be a off option, like watch dogs.. or i spose theres always offline

    • korruption

      I hope the microtransaction option isn’t too intrusive, I know there’s apparently already a “You can speed up development of this for $(insert expense here).” But hopefully not another one to nag you when it’s at 50% completion. Gee, I wonder if they’ll have unskippable plugs for other Konami shit in the cassette player?

    • Mini gear

      tpp was about to be perfect… then konami ruined it

  • H’m

    looking at the below comments … does anyone think the whole kojima/konami thing could somehow be be related to the micro-tranactions on a unrelated note,
    but in all honesty im a mgs fan like the rest of you and il buy every mgs
    ( cant help it lol ) regardless but i cant forgive kojima for dropping mr hayter..

    • VenomSnake1974

      As I said, it’s a possible reason behind it.
      Anyway, good ol’ Kiefer has done a great work, although I regret Hayter droppin’.

      • H’m

        kiefers ok but thats just it, hes kiefer in everything…. and he will never be bigboss or snake in my opinion

        • VenomSnake1974

          IMHO, Kojima needed some darker characterization for Big Boss, according to the plot of the game; hence, he chose Kiefer, ’cause of the tone of his voice: darker than David’s, he also seems permanently suffering. Also, Big Boss and Snake are father and son.

          • Mini gear

            i just want kiefer to actuelly care about the role 🙂 ( i heard he didnt) and from what i heard i like his clear voice in tpp over GZ where he slurs the lines together (keptyouwaitnghuh?) but tpp looks like he does good ^_^

    • Edward Wokhands

      I was thinking the same. It’s a really unKojima like thing to put in a game.

  • muaddib

    doing my very own playlists inspired by the 80’s (i started with faith no more, skid row and erasure, thanks mom), i noticed how this (another) kim wilde’s track could fit in mgsv. that arrangment brings a somber tone, i dunno

  • invader_skoodge

    Hi guys. One thing to note is that We know the location of Mother Base. At the end of that video in the Mission List menu You can see “Mother Base(Seychelles Waters.) Seychelles is an island in the Indian Ocean north of Madagascar and east of mainland Africa. Funny enough, west of Zanzibar.

    • Was posted here: http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=19811 But thanks anyway! 🙂

      • invader_skoodge

        Ah yeah it was. there’s just so much info incoming that it’s hard to process everything at once. lol

    • Gatsu

      Zanzibar ftw! 🙂

  • decoyF0XX

    Looks awesome!!

    Anyone else not really digging the aesthetic of the prep screen though? I hope they can still change it to fit the colour pallete theme we’ve been seeing so far.

  • DUD Guy

    I shouldn’t be suprised by the amount of details since it’s Kojima after all, but damn that preparation video alone is already insane.

  • LiquidCampbell

    GUYS!!! MORE GAMEPLAY!

    I think role of microtransactions totally depends on time counting system. If there research and building time counting like in PW for example when you need to spend some time in game on missions and each mission has its stated amount of time (if not real time when with cigar we can build all in seconds) then microtransactions are really uncomfortable thing. But if there time counting as in mobile games where from microtransactions came then we can spend our real life time outside the game and microtransactions have no power here because we just can in that case turn off console or pc for night and all things will be done towards morning.

    • Mini gear

      but real time is such a waste to make us give money 🙁

      • cklambo

        I would pay real money to watch the 40 minute demo earlier!!!

      • Lawgun

        No, because most of people will be really tired of wait of contruction one simple building for real 4 hours. It’s not me, but there free-to-play game Candy Crush for example in that world and this game earning 25.5 millions dollars everyday. And there free-to-play Clash of Clans where people just can’t wait even 15 minutes not 4 hours and pay.

  • MichaelPayneV

    “The loadout section also includes a face option.”
    I think is safe to asume that this is the 1984 Face-Option EVERYONE would love to have!

    • Wondering what is a Face Option.
      You can scan your face and put into your soldiers or what?

      Thank you 🙂

      • Ravenous

        Camo or facepaint maybe? Or beard/ no beard perhaps?

      • MichaelPayneV

        Pretty sure is going to be like MGS3 “Raykov” Face option!
