The one site chronicling the entirety of the Metal Gear timeline

If there’s one site you need to visit before playing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, this is it.


Metal Gear Timeline is prefect site every Metal Gear fan should visit before playing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

It has a slick UI that lists the history of the entire saga in one massive timeline, starting from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and going all the way to Metal Gear Rising. You can even hide non-canon games like Portable Ops if you choose.

This is perfect if you want to catch up on important events that shaped the later games, especially since The Phantom Pain is set in the mysterious years after Peace Walker and before the events of the original Metal Gear.

It will however be a lot less helpful to those who use it as a way of getting acquainted with the Metal Gear universe. Reading a wiki or watching a truncated video is a much better idea than going through this without proper knowledge of what it’s referring to.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is only days away.
