We figure we know what to expect with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain .
Like MGS4, it'll probably be a blend of stealth and action, only with the addition of more freedom. At least, that's what we've been told to expect. However, the team may be holding something back…something pretty big.
During a recent CVG interview , boss man Hideo Kojima teased a "big surprise" for the new MGS installment and added that it's something we've never seen before in the world of video games, which is quite the statement:
"Specifically for the next-gen and Metal Gear Solid 5, it's not necessarily about breaking the fourth wall, but we do have a big surprise for the players in this game. We have challenged and pushed ourselves with something that movies can't do but only games can do. It hasn't been done before."
So, what do you think it could be? This franchise has always boasted a very strong and in-depth narrative, along with great characters and settings. Kojima almost always puts the story first, so do you think it involves the plot somehow? Or is it more tangible, like a new gameplay mechanic? But if it's a mechanic, is there really anything we haven't seen yet in the world of interactive entertainment? Oh, I suppose there is.
