Last week we caught a fleeting glimpse at some MGS5 gameplay footage, director Hideo Kojima saying back in May that the E3 trailer for his latest stealth action epic would be “tough to watch”.
Well, now you can judge for yourselves. Keeping one of the series’ traditions intact it’s quite a meaty video clocking in at nearly six minutes. Compared to the initial reveal and last year’s gameplay walkthrough it’s certainly more sombre in tone.
We see Punished Snake (voiced by 24’s Kiefer Sutherland) basked in blood, sweat, and ashes over a series of cuts which also include appearances from Ocelot, Quiet, and Skullface.
Fans of the series will no doubt be able to pick out some hidden gems scattered throughout the trailer, one of which could be Big Shell -the setting for Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.
