Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 Trailer [Update: Up Again]

By Ishaan . June 8, 2014 . 11:45pm

Konami shared a trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain ahead of E3. The original upload been taken down for the time being, but other versions are available for viewing on YouTube, such as the one below. The trailer is “directed and edited” by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima.



Update 2: The trailer is available for viewing once more.

Update: Konami keeps taking the video down, no matter where it’s from. It looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer until their official release.

    Aaaaaand… it’s gone

    • Bio438

      What? Do you mean it has been taken down? I can still watch it.

      • Thatguy

        Aaaaaand… it’s back

        Edit: Nope, gone again.
        I think i got trolled. It’s private video or something

      • Landale

        It’s showing as being set to Private. Sometimes. It was there for a bit, Private, there for a bit again, and now it’s Private again. Youtube’s just going insane I think.

  • xe7en

    Looks very promising. Sets a dark tone for things to come specially that last scene.

      I’ve read this before…

    *Edit* First one is down, Here’s another that works

    • Thatguy

      Thanks. it’s working!

      Edit: Nope, not working already

      • Robert Hendrie

        Got another one up haha

        • Thatguy

          You mean not working one? D:

    • Cazar

      They’re taking these down pretty fast. If there’s one thing you can count on YouTube for…

  • GHAmer

    ‘The video is private’
    dang it….

  • Smiech

    The day this game comes out is the day I’ll throw down money for a PS4. And it seems that day is not anytime soon. In fact, it seems to be around 30 years away.

    • God

      Maybe Kojima is planning to send the game back to the past? I don’t think he could acomplish it but i can imagine him trying…

      • Smiech

        Well, considering Kojima is God, and you are also God, you yourself would know best. So, are you? You’re the only game developer crazy enough to try, after all.

        • God

          It wouldn’t be any fun if i just told you.

  • Shady Shariest
  • Ghoul_Aid

    Not gonna lie, I got hyped. Excellent choice of music.

  • Was Rex at the end? Cause Im either hype or utterly confused. Well I can’t wait to get this game!

  • Shady Shariest

    Oh… And if anyone got the itches for the song?

    • It is a great song from an old artist. But thanks to Kojima and company, it will be the next big thing for the next few months now.

      • Shady Shariest

        It’s actually new material, too. If the trailer is honest, Kojima has a kink for Mike :3

        • It’s part of the motif he’s currently going with. Still, I do wonder…

          • Shady Shariest

            No. There are some people like Kojima and Suda51, who one should not wonder about….

          • And yet, one can’t help but wonder…

          • God

            The human mind is a very self-destructive thing.

  • Akemi Homura

    Holy crap.

  • Bacon_n_Lettuce

    Wow. Looks like Metal Gear’s going to start getting much darker and more graphic. Also, Kojima really should have been a movie director (but I’m more than fine with his games, too)!

    And was any of that rendered real time? If so, this is going to look amazing on Xbox One and PS4.

    • loempiavreter

      If bombastic hollywood dumb is your cinematic choice of view.

      • God

        How is Kojima bombastic hollywood dumb?

        • loempiavreter

          “Pierrot le Fou” it ain’t.

          If the epic buildup of this trailer doesn’t make you see it’s Hollywood dumb then your a lost case, as are most teenagers. Except for hipster kids, a lot of them like good cinema.

          • God

            So judgemental, so much self-righteousness in one person… You… i’m sorry, this conversation will lead nowhere, have a happy life, but know God (at least this one) is not with you, even i have standards.

      • Bacon_n_Lettuce

        The cinematography was mostly what I was admiring, but a little bombast never hurts anyone! Personally, I’m okay with a little high-intensity action and dramatics, and Kojima always layers on a good sense of self satire in the actual games. I’d bet he could make something more entertaining than most Hollywood productions, at least.

  • Kango234

    Shit just won’t stop getting real!

  • Jezzy


  • Kornelious

    So my question is that if Konami didn’t want us to see this, then why did it get posted originally?

    • Guest

      Perhaps someone messed up? Like, the person in charge of sending the announcements put the wrong hour to send the press releases? Timezone confusion?

      • Kornelious

        Perhaps…Either way I don’t see much point in giving us another MGSV trailer since it’s in the same position as Kingdom Hearts 3……

  • Theob Vious Choice

    A salad with metal gears in it.
    Metal Gear Salad.

  • Michael Vu

    Just imagining hearing Snake do that scream with Kiefer’s voice is kind of making me cringe.

  • Juliano C

    kinda meh, imo Kojima lost his touch after MGS3, all the games after that have too much ego and subpar gameplay/design

    • God

      What you mean with that? I can understand about Peace Walker and Portable ops, but MGS4 gameplay is not very different from MGS3, only thing is now you don’t need to change your camo every time you crawl into a different kind of floor.

  • Tyler Harwood Simpson

    I can’t wait until 1984!

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Kaz wants revenge on the fiddles!

  • Kaiju_King

    Well this got me even more hyper for the game. Awesome song too. Kojima don’t retire again please

  • God

    Seems like shit is getting serious… Even Huey is getting tortured, and Big Boss is a lot more ruthless, before, every kill except for bosses was avoidable, and there where no kills in the cutscenes, meaning that Big Boss never killed anyone canonicaly, but here, he spares no man or woman… I do wonder who’s ashes he put on his face, it seems like a defining moment, maybe Chico’s?

    PD: Does someone remember what that “horn” in Big Boss’s head was? I remember it was explained, but i can’t remember the explanation…

    • Postnjam

      He states ” I’m already a demon” looks like Shrapnel, could be that he commits something horrible and the Shrapnal is to remind him of it.
