About METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN

About this game

Developed and published Konami.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is set nine years after the events of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES; now, Snake is back, and he's out for revenge! Follow him through the story as he crosses through Afghanistan during the 1980s!

Bigger And Better

It's been nine years since the fall of Mother Base, and Snake (Big Boss) awakens during The Cold War. To seek out his revenge, he begins to assemble his own private army — the Diamond Dogs — to hunt down the shadow group commanded by Skull Face, known as XOF.

A Unique Entry!

In this entry to the series, you'll explore the Afghan desert whilst the narrative unfolds through rich cinematic storytelling and tactical gameplay. The title explores heavy themes as it takes you through the photorealistic world!

Challenging Conflicts

You'll be able to use base-building mechanics, and through that, have somewhere to develop weapons and items for your journey. Recruit enemy soldiers and prisoners, and even call airstrikes and helicopter support!

Ready For Online Play?

Thanks to the new Metal Gear Online system, you'll be able to face other players and A.I. in armed combat! Or, if you'd rather, you can always try your hand at Forward Operating Bases, a mode where you'll build up a base and then defend and attack against others! Resources generated in this mode will be linked back to your single-player campaign.

Amazing game, good weapon mechanics and a interesting if not incredibly complex story. Seriously I watched a two hour video on the history of the metal gear franchise and still barely understand what's going on. Stealth is wonderful though, especially the upgrade system and all the equipment you can unlock.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
MGSV: THE PHANTOM PAIN sticks out as a game-changer for Konami's hugely successful franchise due to its open-world freedom towards missions, and a ridiculous amount of entertaining features. There aren't many games out there that will let you attach a cow to floating device, if that doesn't make you want to play it, we're not sure what will! Slick, stylish and with some awesome voice acting from Kiefer Sutherland (24) as Snake, this is quite possibly the best MGS game to date.
