Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is now really close to release, launching in less than two months in all regions on consoles and PC, but it seems like Konami is not yet done promoting the game in any way. It makes quite a bit of sense, actually, as the new entry of the Metal Gear Solid series is one of the very few big titles the Japanese company will launch on consoles and PC in the next few months.
Earlier today the Japanese publisher has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be available in playable form at the Gamescom 2015, which will be held in Cologne, Germany from August 5th to August 9th. No details are currently available on what will be included in this playable demo but we will apparently learn more about the matter soon, as Konami stated that further details will be coming soon.
Last week the creator of the Metal Gear series Hideo Kojima has revealed that another Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay showcase video might be coming in the future. Mr. Kojima noted on Twitter that they haven’t shown much of the Mother Base gameplay features and that he’d like to let players know more about them with a video that will be shared in the future.
Two weeks ago more Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain videos have been shared online, showcasing the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Special Edition, including a variety of extra goodies, and the Limited Edition PlayStation 4 console featuring a unique HDD Bay Cover based on the upcoming new entry of the Metal Gear Solid series.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released in all regions this September on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The game’s prologue chapter, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, is now available on all formats, offering a small yet nice taste of the open-world gameplay experience featured in the main game.
