Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

Microsoft kicked off its E3 2013 press conference with a show stopper earlier today, revealing a brand new slice of gameplay from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. The footage opened with Snake riding through a desert, demonstrating the Fox Engine-powered title’s impressive graphical prowess. From there, it transitioned into a traditional Hideo Kojima epic – with a perfect theme song to match.

Honestly, the promise of a massive world with new stealth options, realtime weather effects, and more is making us wilder than a desert animal. And despite debuting during the Xbox One keynote, it’s worth noting that this is definitely not an exclusive – regardless of what you may have read from Microsoft mouthpiece Major Nelson on Twitter.
