The Phantom Pain confirmed for 2015, new trailer lands

2 min read


For a while earlier this year it looked like maybe, just maybe, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would somehow make it to shelves before the end of the year. That’s not happening, but there is some good news. While the Phantom Pain won’t come this year, it’ll definitely be out next year.

Hideo Kojima confirmed that the next highly anticipated chapter in the Metal Gear Saga would launch next year, after never really locking down a release window for the title. He announced this on stage at the Tokyo Game Show yesterday, before revealing a brand new trailer.

The trailer (which has no bloody subtitles) is the first proper look at The Phantom Pain’s mute, barely dressed sniper named Quiet. She’s able to go invisible at any time, but as the trailer quickly points out any private with a pair of heat sensing goggles can easy spot her. I’m also a little surprised that no one seems to care how the hell she does that anyway. That would both confuse and terrify me in real life, but everyone on Mother Base doesn’t seem remotely phased. Working for Snake must clearly be hell.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is coming to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff's a bastard.

    One does not worry about the details on MGS…It was never meant to be ultra realistic and its best that it stays that way. Being bound to reality is restrictive…I mean do you want a realistic female soldier or do you want a half naked female that can turn into smoke?….That said. Quiet dripping down was apprently a homage to mgs 2 when snake dropped from that bridge in the start. Pretty awesome

  • Hammersteyn

    Sense, this trailer made none. Also what the hell is sticking out of Snakes head?

    • A tentacle?

      • Hammersteyn

        His little snake?

        • Spaffy


  • She can turn invisible by hiding her boobs, once done, no one cares to see her. Just a suggestion…

    • Hammersteyn

      Pffft I’ve had the power of invisibility forever No women ever spots me. Wait, that’s a bad thing…

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Camouflage bikini. She wears what she wants & is invisible to the naked eye. Problem solved.

    • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

      Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! This! So much this!

      Sigh… I am a terrible person! xD

  • TGS Babay (Umar)

    I want to know…is this really Big Boss…I personally don’t believe it….there is gonna be a massive twist to this story

  • someone buy that lady some clothes….

    • Jedi Consular Kromas


      sorry but I just had to. 😛

    • TGS Babay (Umar)

      Lol There is a reason why she’s half naked according to Kojima, and we’ll all feel bad for just thinking she’s just an over sexualized character

    • Oh you.

    • Hammersteyn

      What if more clothes interfered with her ability to turn invisible………………. I can’t type that with a straight face, she cold at least where yoga pants or something.

  • Admiral Chief Assassin


    • Hammersteyn


  • TGS Babay (Umar)

    How can anyone hate on this

  • Admiral Chief Assassin

    I’m not up to date with the lore/story of this, but can someone explain what the pieces of metal are in his head?

    • TGS Babay (Umar)

      No solid info on that yet, just a lot of speculation. He gets that Shrapnel after Ground Zero. Many theories floating around

    • He was told he needs more iron in his diet and got some rather stupid ideas on how…

    • Viking Of Science

      Do you want the 20 minute exposition dump, or the short version?

  • Viking Of Science

    The Metal Gear Solid series are like the weird, red headed stepchild of gaming. We let it get away with really silly shit, because, aawww… We wouldn’t let other series get away with it… Imagine she was a character in COD or something… the internet would lose its collective mind….

    Seriously, her appearance is causing less internet rage than the lack of Female Playable characters in AC: Unity did….

    • TGS Babay (Umar)

      Firstly there will be a legit reason for her outfit…Also…The entire game has insane themes such as children soldiers,torture etc…A scantly dressed female is nothing new really. Omitting females because its too much work on the other hand

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        All that jiggle & sway physics!

        • TGS Babay (Umar)

          That is the legit reason. Wiggle wiggle

  • WolfyZA

    David Hayter voice pack DLC confirmed?
