Konami confirms release across PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Konami has released the nine-minute E3 trailer and 27 new screenshots of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The publisher has also confirmed the game for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

The game utilizes an open-world design featuring real-time weather, realistic passage of time, and a variety of ways to navigate its vast environments. In addition to returning characters like Snake, Kazuhira Miller, Ocelot, and Emmerich, new characters will be introduced, as well. The storyline focuses on the dark themes that portray the ugliness and tragedy of war as a legendary hero falls from grace.

Watch the trailer below. View the screenshots at the gallery.

  • Raiyu

  • Locksus

  • Adol Christin

    does boss have a pony tail ? or is it my imagination

    • Raoni Marques

      I think he does!

  • xMCXx

    Big Boss’ “horn”….it irks me.

    • DrForbidden

      Horn?

      I don’t get it…

      • bloodiOS

        The huge debris sticking out of his skull.

        • DrForbidden

          Wow, I seriously didn’t even notice that… o_0

  • LordKaiser

    Ok this is how Big Boss joins the dark side? I get it. Perfect linkage to the 1rst Metal Gear.

      This does seem like that story. I also get the feeling we’re going to see how “Solid” makes his proper debut soon. Looking forward to the future of MGS honestly.

      • LordKaiser

        Yup this seems to be how Big Boss creates Outer Heaven and do horrible things to reach that goal. Then it’s Solid Snake job to stop him. But you know who Big Boss wants to stop.

        This is brilliant! This will tie up to Shadow Moses incident.

        • JoJo_649

          More likely to Outer Haven and Zanzibarland, I serously hope MGS VI will be a remake of the original.

          • LordKaiser

            Right I forgot about the MSX2 games.

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          Now you’re raising my hype LK, stop it!, Stop it…I can’t…oh gosh I’m so close to putting out a pre-order on PS4…

          • LordKaiser

            And with this the saga of Snake in Metal Gear is complete. I wonder how will feel to play along side Solid Snakes enemies. Psico Mantis, Liquid etc.

            • JoJo_649

              Or finding a young Sniper Wolf, what if Quiet is her mother?! this game needs to come seriously soon!

            • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

              Well said, well said. LK you and I need to talk more often xD

              • LordKaiser

                LOL I agree. I’m mostly on PS02 JP, you’re welcome anytime.

  • Raoni Marques

    I’m glad it’s still coming for the current gen! Let’s see how good it looks on our consoles and on next gen!

    • KnifeAndFork

      I wonder what the differences will be…

      • bloodiOS

        Using full alpha transparency instead of alpha-to-coverage, I suppose. Better shadow filtering and a solid 30fps at 1080p is also a given.

  • Fantasytales

    To me this game final fantasy 15 and the division are the best game if E3 so far…

    • KnifeAndFork

      no Kingdom Farts?

      • Fantasytales

        Kingdom hearts 3 was just announced it didn’t really have gameplay. But I’m very exited that is being developed I love that franchise

  • new_tradition

    I actually flinched at a couple of scenes >.<

    The Full Trailer was just…. WOW! I think powerful is a good word to describe that. Oh my goodness!

    • DrForbidden

      ^This. Waterboarding & torture, child soldiers, a Guantanamo analogue…

      Absolutely relevant and absolutely classic Kojima. I was blown away…

  • bloodiOS

    This is going to be a legend.
    That said, let’s hope all that torture at the beginning and Big Boss shooting children don’t excite any of the shitty big wig…

  • xMCXx

    So wait, this is THE Ocelot? Revolver Ocelot?
    Then why isn’t he awkward around Big Boss?

    • DrForbidden

      Their relationship doesn’t get awkward until after that hot April night in Yangon in ’87 when Ocelot was drunk and Naked Snake was naked and overwhelmed by remorse and looking for someone to hold him…

      ;P

    • Karl Josef

      Because the Revolver Ocelot is also an undercover.

  • Guest

    I think he is smoking an electronic cigar.

  • bloodiOS

    … Um, I’m just gonna ask something real quick. The one whose belly is cut open at the beginning is a woman right? (Because I initially thought that was a guy.) Anyway, I tried to watch the trailer frame by frame and realized that she resembles Pacifica/Paz… so yeah, that is her isn’t it?

    • DrForbidden

      It’s a woman. She has breasts. I don’t know who it is, though. I initially thought it was The Boss in a flashback scene when her baby was born, but then we see Naked Snake so it can’t possibly be the Boss.

      • bloodiOS

        Those eyelashes reminds me a whole lot of Pacifica/Paz though.

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          I think she is really pretty. (The sniper lady.)

          • bloodiOS

            I thought she was a female Rorschach at first.

            • Djkarl Pierre

              That was Paz, didn’t anyone notice Chico in that scene when they open up her stomach?

              • bloodiOS

                I noticed he was pressing on her guts with his bare hands. Sanitary where?

                • Marco Tinè

                  The girl with her belly opened is definitely Paz.

          • DrForbidden

            Erm, I think Quiet and the woman who got her belly cut open are different persons…

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              I agree. I didn’t realize you were talking about the belly cutting scene thing. My fault. xD

    Next gen will be fun.
