Kojima explained the game takes place in 1984, and Snake is now 49 years old. Because much is done with motion capture and performance capture this time around, Kojima followed the advice of Avi Arad and asked Kiefer Sutherland for the role. The actor accepted the offer, saying he despite not playing video games himself, knew about the famous series. For this game, Kojima wanted Snake’s emotions to be expressed through facial expression and vocal performance rather than words.

Kojima also stated the game will have some very heavy subjects, and a much darker tone than before. Kojima said:

“This time with Metal Gear Solid V the themes are a little different from previous games in the series. We’re taking on some very heavy subjects, such as race and revenge. This makes the tone much darker.”
