The lights are on
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.
