BIG BOSS IS BACK
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Due for September 2 Release
Yes folks, Naked Snake is ready to slither back into action in Hideo Kojima's latest Metal Gear Solid offering – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Just like Ground Zeroes, The Phantom Pain will also be set in an open-world environment that has been upgraded to include elements like dynamic weather and the passage of time to deliver a more immersive experience. Also new to the game is the complete freedom to decide how you would want to execute your missions.
Also coinciding with the game's launch is the debut of Metal Gear Online, a competitive multiplayer mode that allows players to engage in combat with one another online.
As with most major video game releases these days, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will also be available in the form of a limited edition bundle. The bundle will feature a beautifully redesigned PS4, colored the same way as Snake's red bionic arm and a DualShock 4 controller that too has received a makeover in the form of a gunmetal color scheme, complete with Snake's unit logo.
While we have yet to receive the pricing details for the game and the PS4 bundle, it should be noted that the aforementioned bundle is different from the Collector's Edition that is only offered in selected regions.
That particular edition, which may or may not be available here, comes packed with even more goodies encased in an exclusive packaging. Inside, you'll find a half-scale replica of Snake's bionic arm, a collectable SteelBook, a Blu-ray Disc showcasing behindthe-scenes footage and trailers, a physical map and a plethora of in-game items.
