The one-hour session will focus on the history of the Metal Gear franchise, which marks its 25th anniversary this year. The session will be held at 1 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington. It is open to all PAX attendees.

The next entry in the Metal Gear series is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which was recently assigned a release date of February 19, 2013. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 action game is in development at Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Mad World), and a demo for the project will be included with copies of Zone of the Enders HD Collection, another Kojima property.

In June, Kojima confirmed Metal Gear Solid 5, which will not directly tie in with the upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Kojima also confirmed that Metal Gear's main character, Solid Snake, will appear in the game.
