Metal Gear Solid 5’s multiplayer is wonderfully ridiculous

I like to think of 2013/2014 as the teething phase for all our lovely new hardware. Going forward into 2015 and beyond, I want to see games that really push the technology in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, games that make consoles scream and high definition TVs bleed pixels. And I highly suspect that one of those games, will be Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Here’s all the Gamescom multiplayer footage of Metal Gear Solid 5, which starts off with the single-player content we’ve all seen. If you don’t feel like watching that, skip to 16:55 on the counter and enjoy some ludicrous online play.

Fulton balloon ALL THE THINGS! It’s a pretty nifty version of sneaking into the game of another friend, and grabbing a few soldiers and convincing them to join your cause sounds like typical Metal Gear Solid nonsense. I love it. Hopefully Metal Gear Solid 5 will use a variation of the fulton system from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, otherwise this game might be a tad broken and the sky littered with everything from crates to clueless soldiers hanging around in it.

Also, once I’ve tricked my base out, I recommend ignoring the doorway that happens to be surrounded by a crapload of camera guns, infrared lazer laaights, frame frowers and soldiers. There’s nothing important in there, nope nothing at all.

Oh, and in case you missed it, check out our video chronicling The Evolution of Metal Gear Solid. Snake! SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!
