Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Release Date Announced

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has recently announced that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released worldwide on September 1, 2015.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the grand finale of the Metal Gear Solid V games and will expand upon themes seen in the previous game Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Big Boss, after the death of several of his colleagues, enters a series of battlefields. Along the way he will meet many characters, some friends and foes, such as the enigmatic and mute woman known as Quiet and the horribly disfigured Skull Face who serves as the main antagonist.

Several new features will be introduced to expand on the game's tactical elements. A new Mother Base system allows players to customize and expand their base with liberated items and personnel, turning a relatively simple and small-scale off-shore rig into something bigger and better. The Fulton system also returns from previous games and allows players to airlift guards, vehicles, raw materials, and kit to their base. The Mother Base is essential for multiplayer mode, which has players attempting to raid each other’s Mother Bases to steal essential items.

The multiplayer mode, Metal Gear Online, will go live on the day of launch. This mode will feature a class system that uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield. There will also be key characters from previous games, such as Venom Snake and Ocelot, available to play as.
