Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Thirty-Three Minutes Of E3 2014 Gameplay Footage

As promised, Konami and Kojima Productions have shared Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay from E3 2014. The 33 minutes of footage were streamed this morning as part of a larger program featuring series creator Hideo Kojima.

The gameplay demo is approximately 33 minutes in length, beginning at the 50 minute mark in the video. The demo focuses on the Fulton Recovery System, which lets you send soldiers, vehicles, and even sheep back to Mother Base as Big Boss infiltrates an enemy encampment to retrieve intelligence.

You’ll also notice some new stealth mechanics, uses for the cardboard box, and supply and support options like airstrikes and airlifts. For more on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, check out our coverage from E3. The title doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’re just as hopeful as you are that it will hit in 2015.

Be sure to also check out our coverage from the March 2014 issue, which featured Metal Gear Solid V on the cover.

  • This game man. I will be so happy the day I get this.
  • watched about 2 minutes of it, it's amazing, but i turned it off. it's spoilers of course :P
  • I was never a huge fan of MGS but this looks like a must buy.
  • Is this game supposed to be taken seriously? It looks great though! Very polished especially with the animations
  • Skip to 50:18 for the gameplay.

  • So basically, air lift everything. This looks fantastic!
  • Lol horse poop..

  • Looks like tons of fun. Would've love to see gameplay @ the actual E3 instead of that edgy trailer....
  • game looks great, but what's with sending everything into the sky? i think that would get old pretty fast and eventually would get annoying. other than that it looks really cool, plenty of cool animations and ways to act.
  • wow they went all out with the freedom! and I mean with options and gear everything! I can't wait to get my Xbox One.

  • My soldiers will all be sheep.
  • This looks great and seems like it will play extremely fluidly. Say what you want about Ground Zeroes but I found it to be a fun game, and the best aspects have carried over. Of course, phantom pain will surpass it in every facet.

  • It starts at 40:52

  • Watching this makes me want to play Ground Zeros some more
  • They made this game WAY too easy. This is metal gear solid: child's play
  • Gameplay looks great, I can't wait to play this. I'm also glad that the Fulton Recovery System and Mother Base is back. I really enjoyed those features when playing Peacewalker.

  • I can't wait for this game i adored Ground Zeroes, even with it being so short it was still awesome.

  • AWESOME!!!!!

  • The thing is, the map is huge and yet you're locked with the time you have to complete the missions... We need free roam to explore and mess around!
  • the demo begins much earlier than the 50 minute mark...
