Earlier this week Kojima shared tweets showing a new game play demo featuring a better look at Mother Base and will be narrated by the Japanese voice actor for Ocelot(Satoshi Mikami).



Translation by Junker.HQ reads: “Good to see you again, Boss. TPP is almost upon us. You pre-ordered yet? Been doing image training?” Junker adds: “Script also says the video will reveal a lot of new elements”.


Kojima has since formally announced on his twitter account that the Mother Base gameplay video will be posted next week during gamescom with english commentary most likely by Sean Eyestone of now disbanded Kojima Productions. This will no doubt be something a lot of Metal gear fans will look forward too.

Intense action and all-action sport:

KONAMI presents METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 at gamescom

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced its highlights for this year’s gamescom, as the publisher showcases the eagerly-awaited METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 at the Cologne event.

The games represent huge advances in the action and sport genres, and celebrate their world premieres at gamescom in Cologne as they are shown in playable form to a public audience for the very first time at KONAMI’s stand (hall 7.1 / B030).

In METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, the million-selling series takes a giant stride and sets a new standard in stealth-action. A huge, open world setting sees the series’ famed sneaking elements greatly expanded, while a host of new characters – both allies and enemies – tell a story driven by revenge as franchise protagonist Big Boss enters a series of battlefields following the deaths of his colleagues. METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is brought to vivid life with realistic weather patterns and day/night cycles. Thus, players can adapt their tactics to match the changing environment, creating an intuitive and non-linear gameplay experience.

PES 2016 marks the series’ 20th anniversary season and celebrates its landmark achievement via the new tagline ‘Love The Past, Play The Future.’ The slogan heralds the series’ return to core values and a focus on the many new gameplay and presentational elements that will further establish the series as the definitive football experience. From further integration of the industry-leading Fox Engine to bring the on-pitch action to life and the full commitment to centre the product around creating the best gameplay experience. Every facet of the game has been enhanced to deliver yet another outstanding product, including the full redesign of Master League.

“METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2016 will be available for the public to play for the first time at this year’s gamescom; and that´s the kind of line-up that packs a punch,” said Martin Schneider, General Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “KONAMI is going to present two stunning games for the current console generation at the most important consumer exhibition in the world, and further showcases KONAMI’s commitment to bringing AAA-titles to the consumer.”

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be released on September 1st, and PES 2016 on September 17th. The gamescom show will be held in Cologne from August 5th-9th. Further details and information about KONAMI’s activities and presence will be announced soon.

KONAMI´s booth is located in hall 7.1/B030. The booth for business partners and media can be found in hall 4.2/B011.

“This Thursday, IGN will premiere the 25-minute behind-closed-doors demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, previously only at last week’s Gamescom Expo in Cologne, Germany. You’ll see crazy cardboard box shenanigans, open-world exploration, how the day-night cycle affects mission gameplay, and even your first look at multiplayer.

See you Thursday at 3am PT/6am ET/11am BST! We’ll have the video in multiple languages on IGN affiliates around the world, and for the Japanese-language version, be sure to stay tuned to KojimaStation.”

The same footage can be seen above but obviously we will see it in much better quality Thursday.

Kojima on stage today announce that both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain will be coming to Steam with a steam cardboard box in game. No dates or Press Release has been dished out yet to media but stay tuned.











Konami announced in a press release today that visitors will be able to check out Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay on the gamescom show floor itself; a 25 minute presentation, shown in a dedicated theater area, will offer those who attend an exciting look at the various different methods at Snake’s disposal for infiltrating enemy territory.

Due to the sheer scale of its content and huge open-world environments, METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be shown via an all-new gameplay presentation. A dedicated theatre area will be used to show key aspects of Hideo Kojima’s latest opus, with the 25-minute presentation offering a tantalising glimpse at the unlimited ways of infiltrating that the new title offers, as Snake picks his way through one of the game’s desert-based locales. In honour of the game’s inhospitable environs, KONAMI will also project a vivid vista of a desert on the side of the theatre, which turns from day to night as seen in the game.


KONAMI will also be hosting a special evening event on the eve of the show. To be held at Cologne’s Musical Dome venue, series creator Hideo Kojima will appear on stage at the 1700-seater auditorium to give a one-off presentation of METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN in an evening that promises to answer many questions, and will also offer a few surprises! Doors will open for this adult-only event at 18:30 on August 13th. Deluxe seats will also be given away through various competitions, and KONAMI will ensure seats are available to interested parties on the night.

On top of all of this, Konami has a special treat for Gamescom attendees.

Both METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2015 will also be offering special pre-order discounts for the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One versions to gamescom attendees, with a five Euros discount available to anyone reserving a copy for at launch.
