Check out the awesome trailer and gameplay videos of the upcoming chapter of Metal Gear franchise. First, we have a look at the trailer that was showcased at E3 2015 which was edited by Hideo Kojima himself. It is sobering to consider that this could be his last hurrah with Konami.

The story follows the events of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, where the character, Big Boss, who is voiced by Keifer Sutherland (Jack Bauer in 24),  has been knocked out for nine years.  Now awake and fully functional, he leads a new mercenary group, called the Diamond Dogs. He is even given a new codename, ‘Venom Snake’.  The game will take players around the global conflict hotspots like Afghanistan during the Soviet Union during Cold War, and lead Big Boss to find the people responsible for the death of his friends and for leaving him in a coma.

New characters like the mysterious Skull Face and the deadly Quiet will be your partners in specific missions. The almost half naked sniper female will also play a major part in the game, but the developers are mum about her to keep her as a mystery for players to find out. Phantom Pain will give Metal Gear fans insight into characters , at least we get to see more of how Snake became Snake.

Here is the 40 minutes worth of gameplay video shown at E3 2015.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set to stalk Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on 1 September, followed by Japan on 2 September  and a PC release on 15 September 2015.
