Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be at E3 2014, and press are being invited to see it running behind closed doors. Kojima has shed some light on the footage, and has also dropped details of the game’s new trailer.


Director Hideo Kojima announced the demo during yesterday’s Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain PS4 gameplay stream. Hit it up to see the game running in real-time on Sony’s console.

Kojima confirmed that the E3 2014 demo shown to critics will be 30 minutes long, and he added that fans will also see a five-minute trailer come out of the show. We’ll be there to see the game on the show floor, and we’ll report back with all the juicy details.

Oh, and that 30-minute demo apparently took over 300 hours to make, according to Kojima.

    How much of that gameplay presentation consists of cutscenes? Five minute trailer for men descending into madness, oh dear.

    Yeah, I kinda hope that the real game has a better cutscene/gameplay ratio than Ground Zeroes had. I know I may be in the minority about this, but I missed having a long cutscene explain more about the story to me and I especially missed Codec conversations.

    Gets real redundant when people bitch about stuff that’s always been. Bring on the cut scenes Kojima! And thanks for showing time and love to E3 when so many others are flaking out.

    I have been crack head status for PP details. GZ got me so hooked on the potential of PP. I wonder if you can tranquilize the horses?
