Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain 30-Minute Gameplay Video Coming Tomorrow

The full gameplay demo from E3 will be published online overnight.

Konami will be sharing video of a lengthy Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay demo in the early morning hours tomorrow, the company announced today.

The 30-minute video will consist of the full demo that was on display last week at E3. It's set to go live on Kojima Station at 3 AM Pacific on Thursday, June 19, and according to Hideo Kojima, the presentation will be in English. We got a look at the demo for ourselves last week and found The Phantom Pain to be "the most complex Metal Gear Solid game yet."

Separate from this demo shown at E3, Konami also released a new trailer for the game last week that raised a number of questions about where The Phantom Pain's story will go.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prologue of sorts to The Phantom Pain, was released in March to a good deal of criticism over to its length. Also controversial was the game's use of torture, which Kojima addressed recently. The creator of the series said he expected the response the scene got, but he refused to let that keep him away from such subject matter.

The Phantom Pain does not yet have a release date, but is not expected out until 2015 at the earliest.

The demo showed one minute of cutscene and around 20 minutes of gameplay. The person playing knew what he was doing so he was able to clear it pretty quickly and get a 'S; rank. I think you would get a lot more time out of these maps without knowing them.

It plays great and there are some fantastic ideas in there. I think this demo will chnage the mind of anyone on the fence about getting it.

They mentioned the map in this game is 200 times bigger than the one in Ground Zeroes.

Kojima is gifted with a talent that cannot be found in the rest of the videogame industry…..the man has managed to put emotions inside a videogame…just like God placed a soul in every one of us….the rest of the developers out there create “bodies” but Kojima places a soul within those corpses…if you don’t realize that, then you should never play a single Metal Gear title…..end of discussion!

I was at E3 last week and was one of the few able to watch this behind closed doors. I have to say, it was absolutely amazing. Really hope it intrigues non-MGS fans into it! 


and the cutscene was about a minute and a half and the rest was pure GAMEPLAY! First half acquiring intel, then the last part showing off the customizable Mother Base.

According to Phil Fish logic, should Konami have to pay itself for sharing that video?  :)

@Big_Boss9293 I dont like that. I hate how Hideo changed and cut down on the story telling not just abit but significantly because people were mad and lazy to press the skip button. I like this game for the story and even in MGSGZ I felt like it needed more plot. Its weird how you described it I really want MGS5 to have long plot heavy points its what makes this franchise unique and popular. Its like Hideo catered to the call of duty fans instead of the loyal metal gear fans who have no beef about the plot and dont want it sacrificed

@smelly_boob Yeah I don't think that going to be the case this time around, Kojima himself said there will be a lot less cutscenes this time around, he also said that there will be around 100 hour of game play.

@RossRichard How many retards can be on 1 article? lmfao

@DrKill09 Actually it is 200x larger then the Ground Zeroes world. Not the length of the game, the world size.

From playing MGS:GZ it seems to me like Kojima is trying to incorporate the storytelling a little more seamlessly into the gameplay.

The scene where you find Paz and see what they did to her had become one of my favourite video game moments of recent years. Incorporating themes like torture, war trauma and child soldiers in such a serious way in a major game is a bold move.

@Stebsis @DrKill09 LMAO I will never understand how people can consider a speed run of ONE of the missions in a game the entire length of the game. Truly astounding ignorance! 

So I guess since people have beaten dark souls in under 30 minutes that means the game is only that long? smh

@DrKill09 @Stebsis  yeah it CAN be completed in 6 minutes doesn't mean you will on your first second or third run through


Mario world 3 CAN be completed in 7 minutes didn't stop me pouring 100 of hours into it over the years
