PlayStation has announced its lineup for the monthly PlayStation Plus games of October 2017, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is on the list. That means that those with a PlayStation Plus account will be able to play the game for free. PlayStation Blog writes:
First up, we have the blockbuster hit Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain. The epic Metal Gear series picks up nine years after the events of MGSV: Ground Zeroes and the fall of Mother Base. An epic game for PS Plus members to replay again, or to check out for the very first time.
The European PlayStation Blog:
The culmination of three decades of cutting-edge development, Kojima Productions’ farewell to the Metal Gear universe brought together dozens of disparate elements to deliver an open-world stealth-action sandbox quite unlike any other.
As legendary soldier Big Boss, it’ll be up to you to run countless incursions into the conflict-ridden territories of Afghanistan and Central Africa as you work to liberate captured comrades and recruit new personnel to rebuild your decimated private army.
Over the course of the adventure you’ll develop new weapons, capture key targets and uncover the shadowy figures that betrayed your organisation – all in the lust for vengeance.
Here is a trailer showing the full lineup, starting off with The Phantom Pain.
