Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has just released a brand new trailer and will tonight debut an all-new demo video showcasing key gameplay elements from the eagerly-awaited METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. Those who are attending this year’s gamescom will also be able to experience the game’s ‘A Hero’s Way’ mission via a fully playable demo.

With the epic fifth installment of the stealth-action series released on September 1st, the new gameplay video will show all-new footage related to the Mother Base aspect of the game. The specially-created video will detail building options and unique customization elements. The video will also explain the game’s multi-player FOB (Forward Operating Base) feature, wherein users can establish additional bases around the globe to manage captured resources – and demonstrate for the first time – how users can infiltrate other players’ FOB bases to steal resources as well.

The new demo video highlights the strategic heart to METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. The game itself spans a huge, open world setting and greatly expands the series’ famed sneaking elements. Likewise, a host of new characters – both allies and enemies – tell a story driven by revenge as franchise protagonist Big Boss enters a series of battlefields following the deaths of his colleagues. METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is brought to vivid life with realistic weather patterns and day/night cycles. Thus, players can adapt their tactics to match the changing environment, creating an intuitive and non-linear gameplay experience.

The demo video will be released today at 12:00 PM PST and shown throughout the duration of the five-day event. It can be viewed via the official METAL GEAR SOLID website: www.konami.jp/mgs5/

The new trailer gives a full overview of the ground-breaking game, and shows key aspects of the gameplay and its varied characters and scenarios and can be viewed now, here: https://youtu.be/9e8r_xgms4M.

Visitors a gamescom, Europe’s largest consumer gaming event, will be able to experience the many additions the new game introduces as it appears in playable form in public for the first time. KONAMI will have a host of consoles running the game’s expansive ‘A Hero’s Way’ mission which introduces key gameplay aspects and offers players a chance to explore the game’s Afghanistan setting in an early mission.
