TGS 2013: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Braves the Bad Weather

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Not even a heavy storm can prevent Big Boss from completing a particularly challenging covert mission. As planned, Hideo Kojima put in an appearance at Sony’s colossal Tokyo Game Show booth overnight to showcase twelve incredible minutes of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. And judging by the soggy snippet, you should absolutely be excited for the upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 sequel.
The clip shows the aforementioned eyepatch equipped hero storming a base at night time, and extricating a hostage. Of course, being open world, you’re able to go about the taxing task in a number of ways. During the clip, the protagonist is shown driving a Jeep, sneaking up on guards, and engaging in full-on third-person firefights – from the side of a helicopter. The visuals are absolutely incredible, with the wind animating tarpaulins and tents.
