According to PSM3 magazine revealed, Metal Gear Solid 5 will take place in Africa sometime in the 70s and has starring Big Boss and the possibility to live the moments of creation of Solid Snake.
That is a possibility indeed. But let's just wait and see cause we all know that Kojima will always manage to be 10 steps ahead of us. PS: Anyone noticed the chat thing on that site? :P
I think Africa is very good place. I really like this hot and dry settings. I hope it will be more like MGS3
I thought Kojima said he wasn't done with SOLID Snake?
This would easily include Solid Snake. The story lines up with Metal Gear, the original game. Big Boss is the Commander of Foxhound and one of his operatives is Solid Snake and he sends Solid to South Africa where the fortress called Outer Heaven is located. Gray Fox is missing and there are rumors of a Metal Gear weapon. Gray Fox is Frank Jaeger, friend of Solid Snake and stepbrother of Naomi Hunter. Jaeger adopted her after being overwhelmed with guilt from killing her parents. Side note is they have the same last name since Jaeger is Deutsch for Hunter.
He's also known as "Null" the soldier with no name, or number...
Is it just me, or are they missing a huge opportunity by not making a game set during WWII surrounding the Cobra Unit.
it was Kojima's main idea for MGS5. We still don't know the settings so it might be an option. Maybe the first act of the game? I am still sure that we are going to live different time periods in MGS5.
why do we have to play as big boss for? i'm sick of playing as snake already (for those who never played a Metal Gear game Naked Snake = Big Boss). what happened to that idea that kojima had for MGS5, where you were going to play as "The Boss" along with conbra unit in WWII during the invasion of normandy. that is way better idea to me, stop milking snake already expand the universe more. for those who have no idea what im talking about: http://www.ps3trophies.org/...
Good job you got that lame Metal Gear Rising game on the way with Gaiden, i mean Raiden MGS5 sounds cool, hopefully itll be a PS3 only game, i want more gameplay, MGS4 was awesome but there was too many cutscenes imo, i wanted to play the game more Its a long way away anyway, i dont wanna think about it now, Sony games always take forever to release, im still waiting for Final Fantasy Versus and The Last Guardian
Final Fantasy Versus is not been developed BY SONY, but by Suare Enix.
First of all stop bashing metal gear rising, it's shaping up to be a great action game. I know your tastes are too sophisticated for some sort of pleb action game but other fans of MGS are going to give it a shot without being a biased snoot. Also did you really say "Gaiden"? Are you serious?
I think nearly every fan is wondering why the hell we havent gotten to play as "The Boss" yet. Its a massive piece of the story that could really be expanded and instead were playing as the same old character time and time again... One of MGS4's strengths was the bits where you had to sneak during battles already taking place, imagine having to do that except during famous world war 2 battles it would be something new and incredible. I'll like the return to less tech to help you out, hopefully this marks a return to gameplay more like MGS3, and hopefully storytelling more like that with decent cutscenes and a good balance between cutscene and gameplay But yeah, I want to play as THE BOSS, listen to the fans Hideo goddammit!!!!!!! Edit: @Hellsvacancy Couldn't care less if its exclusive or not, if a potential for more sales meant a larger budget for the game, I'd have to go with that.
Same character? I dont think Big Boss, Solid Snake and Raiden are the same character numbnuts.
Solid Snake is a clone of Big Boss, so weve had the third game with Big boss, MGS4 with his clone, the peace walker with Bigg boss again (same guy as Naked snake)and then back on the ps1 it was Solid snake. In the proper MG games the only reall different character weve had is Raiden, which was great being able to play as someone else in some ways it made it the best game of the series. And all this time The Boss has been sat there with an amazing story to be told, and now that solid snake has pretty much croaked we have to play as Big Boss again! Just seems like a weird choice to keep focusing on the same people time and time again when once of the most interesting characters whos story is set in one of the biggest wars ever remains untouched... Its a giant gaping hole in the story which could open up new gameplay experiences it seems like a real missed opportunity
@SpecialK ok, firstly, saying solid snake and naked snake are the same person is like calling two twins separated at birth the same person. hey! while were at it, why dont we just call liquid snake the same person too? you see how stupid that logic is? secondly, no one is forcing you to play as anyone. while i agree it could be a great experience to play as big boss, i would rather play as meryl whos story im more involved in then big boss. but whatever happened to the rumors of a new female lead? that sounds interesting
Meryl would be a good character to play as too. Its more just that we've played as Solid snake a few times now, and Big Boss, we know their stories pretty well it'd be nice to get something a little different.
Do you know what I'm sick of? People over-using the word "milking". It is absolutely absurd how often it's used. How is "Snake" being "milked"? Solid Snake and Big Boss are NOT the same person. Superboy is a clone of Superman. They are NOT the same person. Your opinion is null and void. Sorry.
I'm sure Kojima could come up with a good MGS game even if it took place entirely on a small backyard. Location doesn't matter; all I care about it a soon(ish) release date.
The picture for the article is racist...
How...? It's the Fox Engine, which MGS5 will use
Lol! That is all...
i'm thinking bout Zanzibar.. maybe.. as they said the beginning of "big boss" :)
Now this I could get into. Seeing the Les Enfant Terribles for the first time? Yes.
the title has piss poor grammar
My names Ron Burgandy??
Am I the only one who wants the story to move forward ? Enough with the prequels man, I wanna know what happens after MGS4.
Er... Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
Africa is one of the most beautiful locations on this planet. More games should take place there.
Indeed. It's funny how many people think Africa and just think of large deserts. They never give any though to the lush jungles that exist over there. It's like they've never heard of the African Rainforest.
idk but foliage points to Central America. I might be wrong though as I've never been to Africa or CA. lol Africa would be nice... hope well see snake wrestle a lion a la MG3
It was already stated that the Fox Engine demo has nothing to do with MGS5.
Please link me to the article that states that.
"There will be a MGS5 with the new Fox Engine, but what we showed was not the in-game play, or something like that, says Hideo Kojima. It was only a demo that we had developed internally and that we released because the lighting and all interactions with the environment had fooled everyone. " http://translate.google.com...
This time period is perfect,formation of foxhound! Can't wait to see Big Boss and Jaeger save Sniper Wolf, Psycho Mantis, all the buildup on the bosses from MGS1. Exactly what they got wrong in MGS4, no boss buildup, just a bad codec call from Drebin to detail them AFTER you defeated them. That is why MGS1 still is tops, you cared and remembered most of the bosses afterward and you were a living legend from the start of the game. Also The pic with the dog may be young Liquid as he said he fought under Big Boss and never being 'good enough'. The dog also is a royal harrier which Liquid mentioned that's what he used in the middle east.
Great period that still needs explored. Zanzibar.
can i preorder yet?
Interesting.. The birth of Foxhound, the story behind the original Metal Gear Solid Bosses, The Les Enfant Terribles project.. alot is possible, Judging by the two "MGS5" Big Boss art work piece's that were leaked a bit back, Big Boss is still quite youthful.. my avatar is one of the art piece's, Big Boss is pointing at you.. possibly meaning ".. I Want You To Join FOXHOUND!.." which further pushes the possibility of the Original version of Foxhound being formed, Very Exciting!
I love Metal Gear games. I have been playing Metal Gear since the 1980's. Keep them coming, and please make it a PS3 exclusive. Call me a fanboy; i don't care.
You're a dumb fanboy...and your entire life revolves around video games if this is how you feel...and you need to make some changes in your lifestyle if you want to move forward as a person...because caring about your motherboards and processors encased in a piece of plastic that much is plain pathetic
I love MGS as much as the next guy, but how many generations can descendents of Snake kill Nuclear Gundams? If there were to be another MGS game, I'd prefer the "MG" concept to be dropped out of it and a brand new character introduced...maybe a female? All taking place in the same universe of course, but a new premise outside of "gotta take care of another mech problem, and my name is Snake." Edit: I'd also like to see a return of more character development with the villains i.e. Metal Gear Solid. Every time a villain died, his or her back story, origin was so awesome. I felt like in MGS4 this was a missed opportunity. All those girls with troubled pasts, turned into machines, and the only explanation I got on who or what they were was a support characters codec speech. That hurt.
I much rather play as Solid Snake or Big Boss over The Boss. I'm not looking forward to playing as The Boss tbh. In my oppinion there are way more cooler characters then the Boss. Gray Fox, Solidus, Revolver-Ocelot and Liquid. I would much rather play as any of them over the Boss. And I am not really a fan of past settings either. Playing as The Boss would mean the game has to be set before the 1960's. I prefer modern day settings for MGS. I want to use modern equipment and guns etc. And fighting big AI machines etc are more plausible in a modern setting, compared to 60's, 70's, etc. Apparently this game is gonna be set in the 70's. That's allright I guess. I'll still love the game etc. But I would prefer a more modern setting. Also about the Boss again. It may sound like I hate her or something, I don't. If Kojima decides to make a game with the Boss as playable character, you know I will buy it and be happy with the purchase. Imho, MGS is win no matter who the lead character is.
The setting is in Africa then it has to be zanzibarland hopefully it has mountainous regions deserts and large forests. Also there were mercenaries running man jungle evil night fright black ninja red blaster and the four horsemen. If they are in this game they might get up dated names. I can see acts of terrorism that draws international criticism and forces the fox hound unit of the U.S. into action. I believe we will be playing as a very young snake fighting against big boss and the forces of outer heaven if so I can't wait to play this game!!!!
This is metal gear solid, i do not care were it is. Its MSG it works anywhere
MGS Disneyland! Hell yeah!!! XD
This 'news' is a good few months old. PSM3 published that many months ago.
Solid Snake is different from Big Boss. Solid Snake fights for himself and because he wants to. Big Boss fights because he is told so. Solid Snake is much more of a warrior.
Anyone I get to play as Big Boss, I'm happy
Makes sense since Outer Heaven is situated in South Africa.
This might be set as a pretext for future installments of the series. Were its future lays
Resident solid 5! LOL Hope not!
So I herd this new engine was multiplatform :)
Oh god... This is gonna be RE5 all over again.... (grabs umbrella for cries of racism)
Anyone headed to the Eurogamer expo? Ubisoft is gonna rock the stage http://n4g.com/news/1023306...
Oh wait am I allowed to post links to other articles? If not i am so sorry.
How am I supposed to know?
Big Boss' new outfit is called "Diamond Dogs"(a reference to David Bowie's 70s album and to the diamond mines of Africa). The game is probably going to revolve around child soldiers and the dog (a Rhodesian Ridgeback) featured in the artwork may be used in game (think of it as an updated mechanic like the dog companion in Shadowdancer).
Its MSG 5, it will be awsome
this game is not for the xbot u should remove it
xbox too yeah
keep dreaming fangirl so far it remains ps3 exlcusive...go play some halo 100 or gears 50 since its all u do this gen
How do you know it's gonna be a PS exclusive? Most likely it won't even come out this generation.
I bet the kid of the pic is Debrin ;D
Bored of Metal Gear now, new IPs please :)
@raka ..fangirl? lol u r acting like that...that one that game just for u?..anyway little boy i got ps3 and xbox..but kojima is moving multiplat ...if sony pay lots of money yeah they could stay for ps3 but no for choice just for money...he said already that wanna go multiplat
Lame! Another metal gear that takes place in the jungle! It's gotten old already. This series is still stuck in the past. It needs to move forward. Fresh ideas, less cg, better gameplay and more action. Splinter Cel kills the metal gear series! Blacklist is the new best stealth game. Metal gear ran it's course.
If Kojima REALLY wants to end the series, for good, he has to make at least 3 more MGS's. MGS5 (Snake in Africa) MGS6 (the 'official' events of what happened with Raiden & possibly The Boss, The Joy, defection) MGS7 (closure to the series*) * Preferably an ending with Snake telling flashbacks of everything he remembers via gameplay a la the nightmare from MGS4). Only then can Kojima officially close out & leave the series alone. If not, fans will always be there to stalk & bother him for sequels & answers.
To be honest, I love MGS and Hideo ads something fresh with each iteration. While I don't mind the prequels I would LOVE to see what happened from the end of MGS2 leading up to 4. What happened to Raiden when he went to get sunny? What events took place when Snake and Otacon went after the patriots at the end? I'm curious to know these things in a futuristic/modern setting.
