After almost three decades of innovation, hard work, and success, the story of the greatest stealth series of all time will finally be complete.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be the final chapter of the Metal Gear series pioneered by gaming visionary Hideo Kojima, linking all the games into one cohesive story. As Punished "Venom" Snake, also known as Big Boss, players will traverse through Afghanistan and the Angola-Zaire border in the first open world Metal Gear on a mission to exact revenge on those that wronged him.
Besides the usual sneaking elements, The Phantom Pain includes a host of new features to complement its whole new game world, namely, intelligent AI companions and enemies, real-time day-and-night cycles, and a fully customizable Mother Base utilizing the Fulton surface-to-air recovery system. Multiplayer will also make a return to Metal Gear with two brand new online modes, so players needn't worry about what to do after they're done with The Phantom Pain's highly-sophisticated single-player.
V will come to Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on September 1st.
