Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain | oprainfall

Boy, it’s been a rocky road for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hasn’t it? The departure of Kojima is enough to turn several heads, but that’s been far from the last of it. The latest news is that the multiplayer announced for the game will not be available on launch.

The reasons have not been fully explained, though the pushing of the PC release to coincide with the console release could be the reason.

It’s not all terrible. Konami has announced that those who buy the game on Steam will get the game’s prologue, Ground Zero, and everyone who gets it will receive a behind-the-scenes documentary and in-game items. The documentary in particular is curious and makes one wonder how much of the drama between Konami and Kojima will be revealed and handled. At best it could be illuminating, but at worst–which is much more likely–it could be a hit-piece of Kojima

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases September 1 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4,PS3, and PC.
