At the Tokyo Game Show, on Sony’s stage Hideo Kojima was kind enough to show off Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Kojima is talking with two other people as the demo plays out trying to explain it. They are speaking in Japanese with no subtitles or translators so all we have is the video itself.
Snake is infiltrating a compound at night in the rain to rescue a hostage. Utilizing the tactical stealth the series is known for like hiding behind chest high walls and firing tranquilizer darts. We also get a look at the open world nature in action. Snake can go anywhere around and make his way enter and make his way through the compound anyway he sees fit. It also looks like Snake has some new abilities like bullet time and requesting a helicopter evac.
