Metal Gear Solid 5 trailer unveiled

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has been unveiled in an eye-popping trailer at GDC in San Francisco

After some positively weird build-up, including a couple of trailers made by obstensibly 'fake' developers, the latest installment in the Metal Gear Solid franchise has finally been confirmed.

The series' creator and guiding hand, Hideo Kojima, took the stage at GDC in San Francisco to announce that two previously hinted video games, The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes, were in fact, both part of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5.

 

 

In an interview with the Guardian Games Blog, Kojima did his best to explain the enigmatic footage to the audience at GDC.

"Ground Zeroes is a prologue of MGS V," he said. "Nine years after that event will be The Phantom Pain. MGS V is constructed with prologue and main game, TPP. The game play demo I presented today is the opening of TPP which is tutorial".

So from the sounds of things Metal Gear Solid fans are in for two brand new MGS titles. At the time of this writing, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has been confirmed for at least current generation gaming console.

The bad news, however, is that it doesn't sound as though David Hayter, who has provided the voice for the series' main protagonist, Solid Snake, for over a decade, will be involved with either project.

In a Twitter post, the voice actor said he had not been asked to voice the character and that he hadn't really been told why this was the case.

"I heard then, that recording sessions for MG:V were being put together," Hayter tweeted, "But I didn't hear anything about whether I'd be needed or not."

"So, I got in touch with someone involved in the production. We got together for lunch, and he told me that they 'wouldn't be needing me' on this game. No reason, or explanation was given beyond that."
