The always embarrassing VGAs are gone for now, but that doesn't mean that Geoff Keighley fuelled extravaganzas are a thing of the past. Indeed, the showman is hosting his own event, The Game Awards, which will air on 5th December next week. Spruiking the show on Twitter, Keighley revealed that one of this year's patented 'world exclusives' will be our first look at the online component of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

We know that the mode itself is being developed by Kojima Productions' LA studio in conjunction with the main game's Japanese studio. Additional information, though is otherwise scarce, however the audacious auteur has said that he is "working closely to create a vast multiplayer for all of the fans". Well, thank goodness.
