‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ Release Date Revealed!

It has a release date! It ACTUALLY has a freaking release date!

It’s actually happening, people! Thanks to the sneaky people at NeoGAF who found a working URL of a video that wasn’t supposed to go up until tomorrow, the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has finally been revealed.

The release date? September 1st, 2015. *Sniff*… What a beautiful release date.

So, back to the breaking of this news. As I wrote previously, this wasn’t supposed to be announced until tomorrow when a 48-hour countdown clock is set to end and reveal the big news. Well, the news of the release date was attached to the end of an IGN video, which was dug up and quickly spread like wildfire.

Kojima has made some bold statements about this game, claiming that it could be the final one:

“I always say ‘this will be my last Metal Gear.’ But the games in the series that I’ve personally designed and produced — Metal Gear on MSX, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, 3, 4, andPeace Walker, and now Metal Gear Solid V — are what constitute a single Metal Gear saga. WithMetal Gear Solid V, I’m finally closing the loop on that saga. In that sense, this will be the finalMetal Gear Solid. Even if the Metal Gear franchise continues, to me, this is the last Metal Gear.”

So, there you have it! Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be launching on September 1st, 2015 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Now that we know it’s coming this year for certain it will no doubt skyrocket to the tip-top of many most anticipated games lists. I mean… it’s freaking Metal Gear, how could it not?

Big Announcement For Metal Gear Solid V Coming Tomorrow

Could the release date for MGS V finally be revealed tomorrow? Well, I guess all we can do is wait and see!

Konami has released a 48-hour countdown clock on the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain website, which has everyone and their mums expecting a major announcement tomorrow.

There is absolutely no other information regarding what this countdown clock is all about, though i’m pretty sure a release date would be enough to have everyone screaming for joy.

The countdown is set to end sometime Wednesday, so check back tomorrow to see if this whole thing was actually important or Kojima just messing with everyone’s hearts, minds and souls.

Just a heads up: the website was acting really weird and not displaying correctly when I tried to get on it, so expect some issues when you click on the link. It’s to be expected, though, when you know that everyone is on the page and refreshing every five seconds hoping for even a sliver of news regarding this beloved franchise.

‘Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes’ Price Cut Now Official

If you were waiting for a price drop, well, here it is.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes was a very controversial title when it released earlier this year. The game was essentially a brief prologue to the events of next year’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, though the retail price for the game was $30. I personally found a lot of enjoyment in the game and thought that it was so well designed that it made me want to keep coming back for more, but that’s besides the point.

For those who passed due to the fact that they felt it was too much money, Konami has now made the price of the game officially $20. This is the price for physical copies of the game across all platforms, though the game is still interestingly $30 digital on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Ground Zeroes challenges the player to infiltrate a prison base called Camp Omega to rescue hostages. There are also a handful of other scenarios that have you complete various tasks within the confines of the same area. The game takes place 9 years before the events of The Phantom Pain and will reportedly be an important introduction to that game.

‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ TGS Trailers Emerge With English Voice Acting

Two TGS trailers now in English!

Konami revealed two new trailers for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, though they were both obviously with Japanese voice acting. However, they have now gone ahead and released those same videos with the English voice actors on hand.

The first trailer is called Quiet But Not Silent and shows the mysterious character Quiet arrive at Mother Base while showing off her stealth abilities. None of the men are able to track her once she vanishes, and everyone seems to be wondering if they should kill her or not. Finally, Snake shows up and tells them not to harm her and take her into custody. However, he says that one day she’ll need to be killed and he’ll be the one to pull the trigger. Check out the trailer below. 

The second trailer is called Diamond Dog, which shows a baby hound that will be raised and trained to be a powerful ally to Snake in his adventures. Ocelot says he needs some polish, but with time he could be a Diamond Dog. Oh, the puns. Check out the trailer below. 

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is being developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It’s set to be released sometime in 2015.

Ghost Lady From ‘Silent Hills’ P.T. Demo Appears In ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’

Lisa will actually help you in this particular game.

The creepy ghost lady named Lisa from the Silent Hills P.T. demo will make an appearance in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, though in a different capacity than what you may be thinking.

You’ll be able to use decoys in Metal Gear Solid V that are able to do various things in an attempt to distract enemies. One such decoy is none other than P.T.’s Lisa, who looks just as unsettling here as she does in the P.T. demo. She can be used to distract those who are in your way, or even as a weapon to send unsuspecting enemies flying off of cliffs.

Check out the video showing off all that Lisa can do below. 

Kojima Reveals Intriguing Multiplayer In New ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ Demo

The multiplayer on-hand here looks very promising.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set to be one of most anticipated games when it releases sometime next year, though information on any kind of multiplayer has been very slim up until this point.

Now, series mastermind Hideo Kojima has revealed a 22-minute demo to IGN showing off a very intriguing multiplayer mode. In it, we see a player infiltrate an enemy base, taking out guards and even forcing others to surrender and eventually capturing enemy equipment. The player then aims to infiltrate the interior of a base, using a phantom cigar to make the time pass and get the advantage of darkness. However, he is suddenly spotted by the opponent, thus concluding the video.

Check out the demo for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain below. The multiplayer section starts around the 17 minute mark.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is being developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
