Extended Metal Gear Solid V E3 Trailer

Konami have just uploaded an incredible nine minute trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It’s a bit gory at times and a big chunk of it is what we saw during Microsoft’s E3 conference but it’s definitely worth a watch if you’re a Metal Gear fan.

The game is now confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as the originally announced PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. There’s no word on a release but I’d like to play this as soon as possible. By all means, Kojima, if you need time take it – make this even better than Metal Gear Solid 4.




  1. Wow. Was that Liquid Snake torturing the woman with Ocelot?

    • I believe it is, its a bit hard to tell because he is younger.

      • Changed my mind, on closer inspection he is missing an arm, so it must be Miller, since you see him missing an arm when he is getting rescued.

      • How about eli being liquid?

      • Liquid was born in ’72 which would put him at about 12-13 around TPP. We’d need to hear his accent to know for sure but I’m guessing no.

        Ocelot and “Liquid” are torturing Emmerich. If you pause just as the screen fades in, you see his robot legs.

      • Miller makes more sense now I watch it back, yes.

        Eli makes sense as Liquid though.

        “A Youth Who Curses His Fate”

        That sounds very Liquid. Seems to be about the right age, has what are probably Jackal claws around his neck too and one of his quotes is about hunting Jackals in the Middle East. Liquid could definitely be Eli. There’s the whole Eli reference to Moby Dick too but I still have no idea how the whole Moby Dick thing influences the game.

      • A valid case. My stance has changed….

    • Looked more like a young campbell to me

  2. I’ve just had an orgasm

  3. Okay. I have a PS3 (since last year) and I want to get into Metal Gear Solid. Where and with what game do I start with ?

  4. Why does snake have a horn? (0:12)

    • Supposedly debris from the destruction of Mother Base.

      • Does that explain his vestigial tail? (5:58)

      • Not unless he has a backpack with a weird dangly thing blown into his chest.

  5. Wow, this must be GOTY whenever it’s out. That looked seriously impressive. I wonder what the current gen versions will be like.

  6. Amazing.

  7. I don’t know when it’s release date is, but it’s going straight on my pre-order list at Shopto.

    Am I the only person who gets a headache trying to work out who’s who and what’s what in the MGS timeline. :o

  8. There’s something amazing and yet slightly cheesy about that video. I kept waiting to hear Shirley Bassey belt a few notes out at the end.

  9. Would have loved it had said “NOT FOR XBOX”

    (Yes, I know it is on Xbox)

  10. I can’t really get over the voice acting change; I’m hoping Kojima is up to something and Hayter is gonna pop back up somewhere. IT just feels wrong without him.
