Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be playable at this year’s Gamescom event, that takes place in Cologne on August 7th-9th. Konami has announced this in a press release.
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced its highlights for this year’s gamescom, as the publisher showcases the eagerly-awaited METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 at the Cologne event.
The games represent huge advances in the action and sport genres, and celebrate their world premieres at gamescom in Cologne as they are shown in playable form to a public audience for the very first time at KONAMI’s stand (hall 7.1 / B030).
In METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, the million-selling series takes a giant stride and sets a new standard in stealth-action. A huge, open world setting sees the series’ famed sneaking elements greatly expanded, while a host of new characters – both allies and enemies – tell a story driven by revenge as franchise protagonist Big Boss enters a series of battlefields following the deaths of his colleagues. METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is brought to vivid life with realistic weather patterns and day/night cycles. Thus, players can adapt their tactics to match the changing environment, creating an intuitive and non-linear gameplay experience.
“METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 will be available for the public to play for the first time at this year’s gamescom; and that´s the kind of line-up that packs a punch,” said Martin Schneider, General Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “KONAMI is going to present two stunning games for the current console generation at the most important consumer exhibition in the world, and further showcases KONAMI’s commitment to bringing AAA-titles to the consumer.”
METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be released on September 1st, and PES 2016 on September 17th. The gamescom show will be held in Cologne from August 5th-9th. Further details and information about KONAMI’s activities and presence will be announced soon.
KONAMI´s booth is located in hall 7.1/B030. The booth for business partners and media can be found in hall 4.2/B011.
