CVG - Metal Gear Solid 5 will be set in 1970s Africa, star Big Boss and - and maybe, just maybe - show the birth of baby Solid Snake, according to an in-depth investigation in the latest issue of PSM3.
Well, I consider the Militaires Sans Frontières as the original Outer Heaven. While Outer Heaven is in South African in Metal Gear 1, the games never really explained why he would abandon a functioning plant with thousands of soldiers, and why he would develop another Metal Gear in the 1980's when he already had one working in the 1970's. That's why I consider the Militaires Sans Frontières as the original Outer Heaven.
Outer Heaven is in South America, not Africa
Um... Outer Heaven was established in South Africa near galzburg
Something to do with Zanzibar
Hmm... Am I the only one that wants to play as Solid Snake in his prime one more time? I hope that Metal Gear Solid 5 takes place some time between 2 and 4 and you play as Solid.
Same here man. Solid Snake is my favorite character in the series and I really wish we could see again alongside Otacon without Sunny -_-
well said, what alot (okay maybe not a lot) of people don't realize is that in the whole metal gear solid (not the originals on nes and msx) we only got to play as "the Solid Snake" once..... thats it. MGS: Solid Snake MGS2: Raiden MGS3: Big Boss (Naked Snake) and here is the kicker- MGS4: "OLD Snake" Yeah I know Old snake is really solid snake just "Older", but in a sense he wasn't "The" Solid Snake. In MGS4 he was old, sick, dying, melancholy, and just was plain oh tired of fighting and war. If players look back we never really got a chance to play as SOLID Snake again after MGS 1. The closest was in MGS2 where Hideo-san teased us with the tanker mission and alas it was just the 'prologue' of the whole game (I luv MGS2 by the way, was not a Raiden hater). Back to the point, i know the saga of snake has been concluded, as it should be, but i wish we got to play as him "in his prime one more time". ps: every time I replay MGS4 I always wear the young snake Camo mask, just for this very reason.
I always play MGS4 with the young Snake mask on. It's always bugged me that we haven't gotten a more modern game where we could play as Snake in his prime. My dream MGS would be a complete remake of the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, either as two games, or a single game, while only keeping with the basic plot so Kojima has the freedom to tell the best story possible.
Makes sense. The taboo Kojima mentioned might be kids involved in wars.
The taboo he mentioned was for Project Ogre, not MGS5 unless both projects are the same. http://www.vg247.com/2012/0...
@ megaman_nerd: I think project ogre is definately Mgs5's pre-production code name. Look at the setting, it's clearly in Africa (the climate, jungle, african colored beads the boy has on) the boy is clearly a boy-soldier (he has on similar gear that big boss wears) you know: the military pants with the ammunition pouch, etc. But none of that proves its mgs. What DOES give us a clue for sure is the animation of the boy. As he is running around, I noticed that Kojima simplyy plugged in the same animations used for Big Boss in Peace Walker (even though its a portable game, its animations were superb). He runs exactly like him and at the same pace. It's definately an MGS game (even if he decides to change the animations later, his use of them are a big indication of what he has in mind for project ogre). And remember, Bigg Boss meets Grey Fox when fox is just a boy soldier. IF he met him in Africa, then the boy was likely black (yes there are many other races (including many whites) in Africa, but virtually all young boys that were used as child soldiers were black Africans (sadly)). So I wonder if the child we're seeing on Ogre is Grey Fox. YES, Grey Fox has been portrayed in Portable Ops as Caucasian, but that was a non-kojima spin-off (which Kojima borrowed SOME of the events (not all) from Portable Ops and then made Peace Walker). Either way, i'm excited to see how new games like MGS 5 and GTA 5 are looking to be making deeper stories that deal with more taboo, politically sensitive subjects. These are gonna be some deep storylines!
it'll be awesome if the last scene you'll see in the game is Snake and Liquid being born and Big Boss holding them both in his arms. I wonder if this going to be a PS3 time exclusive r will it be the first MGS game to have a multiple platform release at the same time. Doesn't matter to me, I'd buy on the PS3 anyways. Playing a MGS game on anything other then a PS controller just feels wrong to me. Besides You'd know the 360 version will be at least 3 discs.
what about Soldius?
Soldius was created 2 years after Snake and Liquid.
Super nerds, Its what makes this thread up. Super nerds, The whitest kind of white meat.
That could be interesting but I really want remakes of metal gear 1 and 2.
Metal Gear solid: The twin Snakes if you don't mind playing on Gamecube
Pretty sure he meant the NES games.
Yeah I meant the ones in the 80s, I think they could realy do a lot with it and it might help us understand the relationship between big boss and snake. @topdudeman you're wrong,snake defeats big boss in mg2. Edit: Btw I've played every mgs except twin snakes, I'll be getting that one soon too. :) Edit2: @noticeablyfat there won't be a direct sequel too mgs4, Hideo didn't back himself into a corner he meant for that to be the last farewell for solid snake. The only game where I had a problem with the story is mgs 2, all the others were understandable enough. Most series I get tired of after enough games, but not mgs. I've played six of them, 1-4 and PO and PW and I've loved all of them. Didn't get tired of playing any of them. Each game made noticeable changes in the gameplay to keep it fresh.
I hate twin snakes. It was over the top and ruined itself with all the stupid cut scenes.
MG2 was just the original version of MGS's story, I think. But I don't think MG1 has been done.
AH! the NES games my bad
As long it remains for the ps3 its all good
I'm guessing you mean PS3 exclusive. I'll be very surprised if MGS5 isn't multiplat.
I hope it is multiplat cos then I'll be able to choose which console to buy next gen... PS3 was a requirement this gen :P
Highly unlikely brother. Konami and Kojima Productions confirmed that future games will be multi-platform. Plus, the Fox Engine which is rumored to power MGS5 was created to support all consoles and PC.
I hope it plays like the old games and it looks as good as MGS4 if not better.
I hope that everyone gets to experience the game on all platforms:) Me included, on PC
I'm sure he means he just wants to play it on his PS3. He doesn't mention exclusivity at all.
PS4 launch title
getting mgs on pc! http://www.pcgamer.com/2012...
They backed themselves into a corner with that ridiculous story in the last Metal Gear, Snake is too old to do anything now. I guess they could prequel it up and confuse more people? When you've painted yourself into a corner, its prequel time. Just ask the people making God of War 4, I mean God Of War Ascension.
MGS4? that is the final metal gear solid game or solid snakes story it was a perfect ending
MGS4 was made to be the last game in the MGS series chronologically. why would they ignore that and go and make a sequel to that? there was never meant to be a sequel to MGS4. btw some of the best games are prequels, MGS3 for instance and that didnt confuse anyone. it gave the series a brilliant backstory, you saw the boss, big boss, ocelot in their youth and the story was brilliant. A prequel playing as the boss, with the cobras would be brilliant. it might not add anything storywise to the MGS series as a whole but it would be damn good. and GOW make one prequel (in the main series) and that means they've run out of ideas? Nice logic.
there are 3 GOW prequels that is all!!
MGS4 had a great story. MGS2 was the one with a ridiculous story. Saying Snake is too old now shows little imagination, given all of the genetic experimentation and nanotech that has gone before. No reason why Old Snake can't be rejuvenated or some other Snake clone created. Sounds like it will be another prequel though, which is just fine since most fans of the series will tell you MGS3 is the best overall, and it starred a "different" Snake. Since you're confused, I would bet you haven't played most of these games. The saga is convoluted for sure, but not confusing.
Hating just for the sake of hating? I've never seen that one before.
lol Do you even play Metal Gear or God of War? If you played every single Metal Gear there is no way you'd call MGS4's story ridiculous. The reason why Snake is old is because he is a clone. It isn't ridiculous it makes sense. Troll harder son. ***"I guess they could prequel it up and confuse more people?When you've painted yourself into a corner, its prequel time."*** This proves that you are just trolling. There have already been prequels for Metal Gear and better yet people aren't confused after playing them-- except maybe the people that never understood the story in the first place...? Furthermore, do you mean to tell me that MGS3 (which is a prequel and which came out before the 'too old' Snake) was made because Kojima painted himself into a corner lol? Troll some more.
AWESOME! This game need ps brand!
Hope its PS3/PS4 exclusive
Wont be. The new fox engine is designed for multi platforms
Guys.. this goes around the time where Naked Snake , goes to Africa and saves Naomi and brings her to the U.S it's around 70s-80s...
Frank Jäger aka Grey Fox saves Naomi
Metal Gear Frank would be an amazing game to play. Maybe a different title tho... Definitely a really interesting character in the metal gear universe.
The birth of baby snake ?? Well that is going to be a 30 minute cutscene.
LOOOOL. The sons of Big Boss were born in 1972. If MGS5 takes place between 74 and 80 then Snake can be anywhere between 2 to 7 years old. Not much of a baby if you ask me.
Yeah, would have had been during Peace walker.
LMAO!!! Rampaged Death, your are so right! You are getting agree from me lol.
Everyone keeps saying it can't be exclusive because they said this and that. Keep in mind they say tons of crap all the time. Sure I will continue to play the story on playstation but there is nothing wrong with it hitting other consoles.
sry but it is WRONG and im not talking just for sony games going multi im talking also the other way around.... If they continue to release all these exclusives games both sony and m$ each other then sooner or later all will just die.... each consoles needs exclusives games to mark their brand Now for example lets say gears of wars and halo goes multiplatform never will but let say it happens...whats left for the xbox??? nothing the rest of the games are multiplats or on pc same for sony goes for sony..nothing will be left and consoles will die really soon. consoles needs esclusives..lots of them
Well I love MGS so cant wait
Honestly, ive always wanted to see a game set around Gray Fox.
Is this continuation after Peace Walker? I thought PW was MGS 5?
There will be no baby snake at all this will be about how snake(big boss) was able to set up or expand his business to Africa this is also a goal to do some stuff that is spoilers so I wont say =/
Why not set during ww2-before part 3 and show boss's story? Grant you the tech(in game) would be a little primitive compared to part 4, but it could be good. That or follow up on liquids story, not sure if they have done his in detail, or could do grey fox's story, probably better than the spin off revengence will be.
Africa? Sounds cool but i cant help but be reminded what happened when capcom decided to make Africa the setting for RE4. Geez some people are so sensitive. It's just a game people. Hopefully the game wont attract the negative attention that one did.
I agree 100% in regards to the capcom situation. But, its not fair to say 'oohhh this group is too sensitive, that group is too sensitive". Until you have walked a mile(s) in there shoes you can't/don't deserve to pass judgement on them. Granted there cases everyday where ppl take things too far and over react; but that can't justify others calling them out on it everytime they feel like it. example: Bill Clinton, all round nice guy except for the "oval office thing". Now lets say he gives a speech/talk/whatever about the morals infidelity and womanizing. Even what he says is 100000% accurate and objective and no flaw what so ever, he lost all creditably to talk about that issue due to that incident. Just imagine, Bill Clinton saying to young people and newlyweds that cheating is bad don't do it. It would fly.... and the same goes (I feel anyway) with critizing specific groups of ppl. *steps off soap box*
I saw the title and immediately thought of little baby Solid whooping everyone's ass... "That'd be impossible, anyway." It's Japan. Nothing is impossible.
I want a new MGO included,i loved MGO T_T
Metal Gear Kony
Give me snake and otacon again, and anya ... Maybe before sons of liberty and after mgs
