Konami today announced its Gamescom 2014 lineup, saying it will showcase "major advances" to open-world action game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and professional soccer title PES 2015 during the massive public show in August.

According to Konami, both games "perfectly demonstrate the versatility and power of Kojima Productions' FOX Engine, while delivering a new experience in visual quality and the power of the new wave of console systems."

For Metal Gear Solid V specifically, Konami says Gamescom attendees will have a chance to see the "sheer scale and ambition" of the game. The game's open world--powered by the FOX Engine--has allowed series creator Hideo Kojima to "realize the scale and story he has always envisaged," Konami says.

The publisher will reveal "new details" about Metal Gear Solid V during Gamescom, which Konami believes will convince you that the game is the "most extensive and ambitious Metal Gear Solid ever." The game is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, though no release date whatsoever for the game has been announced.

As for PES 2015, Konami will bring a playable version of the game to show, marking the title's first appearance at a major public event.

If you're attending Gamescom 2014, you can visit Konami's booth in hall 7.1 A030/A031. GameSpot will be on the ground at Gamescom this year, bringing you all the news as it happens.

Gamescom 2014 takes place in Cologne, Germany August 14-17. You can buy tickets to the show at the event's website today.
