Make Mother Base your own in Metal Gear Solid V

What do you mean you don't like that shade of peach?

Metal Gear Solid V still doesn’t have a release date, and following Hideo Kojima on Twitter doesn’t make the wait any easier. The series creator frequently tweets out progress on the highly anticipated sequel, such as new looks at Snake, shenanigans with Diamond Dog and now Mother Base in a brand new splash of bright pink. Turns out, this is just another way to make Metal Gear Solid V feel more personal.

Mother Base is an integral part to The Phantom Pain, acting as the central hub where you can store weapons, gear and any livestock you’ve managed to airdrop out of a godforsaken battlefield. You’ll launch single-player missions from here, and customise its defences to protect from online player invasions. In short, you’re going to be spending a lot of time at Mother Base, so it’s quite neat that Kojima and co have added some personal customisation options.

Just take a look at Kojima’s own base of operations, which received a nice, bright coat of pink paint recently.

Not that intimidating, but it sure looks pretty.

It will also help your base stand out from the rest online. While other games have badges and player icons, your Mother Base is going to be your call sign. Hopefully there will be a few more options open for customisation, such as custom insignia for display around the rig or unique soldier uniforms. That means when a player decides to try invade me online, they’ll remember getting their ass handed to them by a force housed in a base that looks like it exploded with orange soda.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain still, painfully, doesn’t have a release date. What’s your Mother Base going to look like?
