The lights are on
Update: The Phantom Pain may not be a new franchise after all. Click this link to see what Neogaf dug up.
Spike's Video Game Award show is known for its video game debuts. No time was wasted delivering a big game announcement this year.
The game of note is Moby Dick Studio's Phantom Pain. Appearing to be a psychological thriller, or perhaps a survival horror game, Phantom Pain follows a character who has been in a coma for "quite some time." He has a prosthetic arm, and is struggling to walk. The hospital he's slowly working his way through is under attack by armed men. Smoke hangs heavy in the air. Patients and doctors are gunned down. And just when it seems these gunmen are the biggest concern, we see a unicorn with its horn ablaze.
Phantom Pain's looks intense. I can't wait to see more of it.
No systems or timeframe were revealed, other than the presenter saying that "we all have to wait to play it."

looks awesome and quite pretty too. Giant Fire Whale.
I already want to know more.
I'll have to wait a little before I see the trailer but it sounds interesting.
Dark Souls 2 just announced also!!! Incredible.
I saw the trailer, and I'm awaiting more. It looked so weird, interesting, and fun. Definitely keeping an eye on this one.
DARK SOULS 2!!!!!! I'm more excited about that than a new IP.
Looked so intended cannot wait
I turned the TV on in the middle of the trailer, and I actually thought it was a MGS trailer. Still, it looked good. The announcement was not nearly as good as Dark Souls 2. I said "I'm buying that game" during the Dark Souls 2 trailer, and I've never seen footage of Demon's Souls or Dark Souls.
i want to learn more about that game!
A flame whale ate a helicopter! Sign me up.
Wow. He sure has some psychological issues as well.
I REALLY thought this was going to be Manhunt 3 at first and got way too excited.
That being said, this still looks GREAT. Always up for some psychological horror.
What is this for?
