Via the guys over at Gamersyde. The Gamescom demo of the game, once again in 1080p and 60fps, all 22 minutes of it.
“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.
Here are some new screen shots straight from Konami of Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain showing Day and Night time cycles as well as other various shots of Mother Base and the newly Cardboard Box techniques.
