I am seriously excited for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Words cannot express how much I need this game in my life, and I imagine if you’re reading this post then you may well feel the same.
Last week was the Tokyo Game Show, which featured a special demo of Metal Gear Solid 5 running on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Below is a capture of the PlayStation 4 demo, and quite frankly: It’s beautiful:
Just looking at that daylight stealth gameplay has got me all tingly. The FOX Engine is certainly a great bit of tech for the next generation; but remember that the game is still scheduled for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It’ll be interesting to see how the game will be scaled back for those platforms.
Joining this footage, are some newly released screenshots as well:
