Kojima shows next-gen gameplay at Xbox presser.

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has confirmed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for Xbox One during Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

A gameplay trailer premiered during the event showed an open-world Metal Gear Solid featuring a new bread of stealth (hang on the side of a horse!), real-time weather (like dust storms), various modes of transportation (like tanks), unparalleled strategic freedom, and realistic passage of time.

Characters shown include Kazuhira Miller, Quiet, Eli, Skull Face, Emmerich, Ocelot, and Code Talker.

It was not said to be “exclusive,” so expect a PlayStation 4 version, as well.

Watch the gameplay trailer below.

    Great way to start a conference.

  • Awnye

    I REALLY hope they add in a “change disk” joke like they did in 4.

  • Tac-Mex

    Sorry, it’s an exclusive according to Major Nelson twitter

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Doubtful since Metal Gear has NEVER sold well on an XBOX console, lol.

    • xMCXx

      I hope this is a joke!

      For Big Boss he can do anything o_o

    Just at a first glance, I don’t care for the “new breed of stealth”. It’s kind of bullshit, really. I mean, who in their right mind wouldn’t go, “What the hell?” if they just randomly saw a horse riding past them?

    There are hardly any “wild” horses, so I don’t buy it. Someone would investigate that or think it’s pretty weird to not see someone riding it.

    EDIT: Also, as much as I enjoy the realtime weather effects, you mean to tell me he can simply walk through a dust storm without it affecting his vision? Of course it affects the player’s vision, but he should have goggles for this particular setting to make it more realistic. Nobody is going to go through a storm like that without protective eyewear (and no, the eyepatch doesn’t count, lol).

    • PrinceHeir

      yeah i think it would be cool if he added the goggles getting buried by the sandstorm :D

      but eh there’ still limitations, and yeah the eyepatch he doesn’t get blinded by the sand :P

      as for the horse, well sometimes you might not notice it, maybe both the soldier were having a conversation and didn’t notice the horse past by

  • Zackasaur

    Yay! Getting this for PS4.

  • Bob Obb

    Still kinda looks like a PS3 game but at least it’ll be 1080p60 on PS4 :)

  • DarthNemesis

    Great I will be getting this for PS4 then its in too many platforms though.

  • rainelee

    Wow…so getting this first day. For PS4.

  • new_tradition

    Seeing children in cages… I guess this is what they meant about mature themes? Child soldiers aren’t new to the franchise, but I think see such graphic depictions is something that will hit people hard ;A;

  • Anime10121

    My god this game looks GLORIOUS! ALL OF MY WANTS (PS4 version anyway)!!! But yeah, that looked breathtaking, and Kiefer actually sounds pretty good as Snake :)

  • King-Prodigy-X

    You Sellout!!! Kojima first you get a different voice actor and then you come out on to that stage to announce for Xbox One knowing that it’s also coming to the PS4. I expect a 5 min demo at Sony press conference. >:(

  • Nice Boat

    Just “Emmerich”? So the doctor “Huey” sold his first name and bought a last name?

  • GhostNomad

    As excited as I am for this, hearing Snake talk was just… Not right.

  • zweii

    Is it just me or is the only woman shown here was Quiet.
    And whats unique about her is that she is a sniper who can’t talk?

    So as a sniper you won’t see her and won’t hear her. But I maybe overthinking what Kojima wanted here.

  • Jontaku

    Is that Chandler Riggs as Eli? They look awfully similar.

  • DrForbidden

    Everything in the trailer is classic Kojima.

    It’s going to be a long time before I get used to Sutherland’s voice, though…
