Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is easily the series most ambitious edition to date, expanding upon themes and content seen in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and is now available. A host of Metal Gear Solid features make a return in hugely advanced forms, including expanded CQC (Close-Quarter Combat) skills, vastly improved enemy AI, online elements that complement the single player campaign, and an all-new version of Metal Gear Online, a competitive multiplayer mode, included within the main game which goes live on October 6.
The online element represents the third iteration, newly redesigned with the familiar gameplay and aesthetic styling of its companion single-player campaign. MetalGear Online features a “class system” that more uniquely defines the strengths and abilities of player characters on the battlefield. Key characters from the series including Venom Snake and Ocelot will also make appearances in the anticipated multiplayer feature.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is now available for PS4 and Xbox One for $59.99 while the PS3 and Xbox 360 version retails for $49.99.
