'Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain' announced at GDC

By
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has been announced at the Game Developers Conference.

Franchise creator Hideo Kojima revealed today (March 27) that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain together make the Metal Gear Solid sequel.


Described as an open-world game, it follows Snake as he wakes up from a nine-year coma.

A gameplay demonstration showed the game's tutorial, with the protagonist waking up in a hospital and being forced to escape, but too weak to stand.

However, Snake is soon aided by a man named Ishmael, a character who many are speculating is voiced by 24 star Kiefer Sutherland.


Kojima was at GDC discussing the new Fox Engine that Kojima Productions was building when he officially unveiled the game.

A trailer for Metal Gear Solid 5 was also shown, featuring footage from both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.

It was confirmed at the end of the video teaser that the game would be coming to both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
