During Tokyo Game Show 2014, Konami announced (thanks, 4Gamer) during a presentation that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release sometime in 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. The game is also slated for release on PC, although it is unclear when the PC version will be made available.
Similar to the footage that was shown during Konami’s Gamescom conference last month, they also shared some more during Tokyo Game Show, where we get to see Big Boss sneaking and exploring around a jungle full of guards, with the help of his partner, Quiet.
At around 13:35, they show Big Boss stun an enemy with his robot arm, and they also mentioned that he’ll have all kinds of different “arms”. In the next part, they show how you can coordinate with Quiet to take out targets from long range.
Quiet seems to provide cover fire from a distance with her sniper rifle for the most part, but she’ll even occasionally jump right into the action. With helicopters and hundreds of enemies in the area, it looks like the Boss will need all the help he could get, this time around.
While sneaking around, things can get pretty messy if discovered, and even with Quiet’s support, there might be some times where it’s best to run. However, if you’re cornered and can’t find a way out, she’ll do everything she can to help Big Boss make a safe escape.
