MGS4 details from EDGE: This will blow you away

MGO is included with MGS4, but it will be the bare bones to be added to and upgraded in time.

The opening credits (of MGS4) were designed by Logan, the people that did the hugely successful ipod ads.

The story visits more locations and embraces more styles than any MGS to date.

A 'virtual range' will be included from the main menu. Here you can test the huge amount of weapons in MGS4 as well as the various advanced CQC techniques in the game.

The game will feature various details to play around with such as highly detailed and fashionable consumer gadgets.

MGS4 has been 4 years in development.

There will be one hell of a big bang of a final to the game. Not a whimper. This will blow you away.

Snake is a slave to injections that keep him alive.

The sneaking play of the originals with it's air ducts and cameras has now become a fast pace living battlefield of traps and innovations.

The control system is 'revised and improved'

The Gekkou (the mechs with organic legs that make mooing sounds) will work in packs to hunt you down. They can sense past your optic camo if they think something is amiss.

Snake will have two new energy bars that makes Snakes advanced age impossible to ignore:

Stress: This rises in response to fight conditions. This can work with him, giving him hightened senses such as accuracy and sustained damage being halved. But if in this condition for too long, snake will crash causing him to become exposed to his illness. a drag on a cig will help him calm down however.

Psyche: This affects your general state of mind in the field.The balancing of these two bars will affect your progress.

You can use a camera to sneak away from your mission objectives and record incidents happening on the battlefield in secret. Some can be 'unpredictable and dangerous' There is something special about the camera this time around but EDGE were not allowed to say what.

There is a "surprising degree of explorative freedom" in the game. You can choose to engage in battles if you wish, or just ignore them. Friends and enemies can be gain this way if you do choose to help one side out.

Drebin (the arms dealer with the small monkey) will be important to the story and will also act as Snakes weapons dealer.

Productions values transcend modern video games: A Hollywood grade surround sound and moving track score by Harry Gregson Williams. Electrifying cut scenes and a sense of closure "more suited to Return of the King than Halo 3".

There is so much tucked away in the game that some things won't be discovered until months or even years after your first play.

Kojima says: As for future MGS I would love to produce rather than direct. But as far as Snake is concerned, this is it. It's over".

I never thought I'd be reading such things coming from EDGE. They're the most overly critical magazine out there.

Fishy Fingers4981d ago

At least when they praise a game you know it's deserving.

Edge, like us (gamers) are hard to please :)

TriggerHappy4981d ago

This is coming frm EDGE ? Holy hell am a happy panda.

sonarus4981d ago

Edge can be as harsh as they want to be with MGS4 but at the end of the day, they simply cannot deny quality. At least we are pretty sure ps3 has its first exclusive game of the yr nominee.

TheHater4981d ago

This must be a mistake. EDGE don't praise a game like this. Dam, this game must be good it they are this into it

Iamback4981d ago

yes same EDGE that gave 10s to HALO 3

sonarus4981d ago

Pretty much every reviewer fell for the halo hype. Its a shame when hype influences a games review. MGS4 also carries its share of hype and no doubt reviews will be influenced to some extent, however let us hope mgs4 can do what most of the hype games couldn't do and actually live up to the hype on all points. Story, Visuals, Gameplay, Online everything

"At least when they praise a game you know it's deserving."

I'm not too sure about that. Read their Halo 3 review...

'As far as snake is concerned, this is it. Its over.' APOCRYPHAL

gaffyh4981d ago

Its a little strange that this info is on Also if this stuff is true, there are way too many spoilers in this story, I'd rather not know so when I get the game I can discover the features myself.

And i love that, when Snake and I both get stressed, we can stop and chill out with a smoke together.


Oh, "special camera"?? hmmm, I'm going out on a limb with "x-ray".... allowing you to view concealed weapons... but more importantly, boobies.... lol :)

Was the reason I purchased a PS3, this game is like Star Wars or some other such franchise. They seem to really have gone all out using the features that the PS3 has.

Can't wait for the beta of MGO, then the actual game.
