Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, players reprise the role of Big Boss as he builds up Diamond Dogs, a Private Force of elite soldiers taking on mercenary jobs in battlefields all over the world. At the same time, Boss’ thirst for revenge has not ended: after the destruction of the MSF as depicted in Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, Big Boss and his accomplice Kazuhira Miller seek out to find and eliminate Skull Face, leader of the notorious elite ops unit that was responsible for destroying all that Big Boss sought to build up.
Keeping with Metal Gear tradition, players stealthily infiltrate enemy bases to eliminate targets, obtain intelligence and discover the location of the notorious Skull Face, but with a twist – the vast open world of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain allows for an unparalleled, open stealth action experience. Players prepare for missions with an extensive range of equipment – from rocket launchers to tranquilizer pistols – which can further be developed at the Mother Base, and then set out to accomplish objectives by attracting the least attention as possible.
With locations stretching across two massive open world maps set in Afghanistan and Africa, the game promises over 100 hours of playtime as players complete the missions and side-ops across over a dozen bases of various sizes and difficulties. But that’s not all: players can undertake FOB missions and invade Forward Operation Bases belonging to other players. A successful FOB mission can net plenty of rewards – while also attracting reprisals.
Over the course of the game, Big Boss will encounter enemies both new and old and gain new buddies. Buddies can be deployed in the field just as Boss’ equipment and provide unique tactical advantages to the player. From the mute sniper Quiet to the trusty and loyal D-Dog, Boss will never have to be alone in the field as he deals with his foes.
