Watch how invasions work in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain FOB

Metal Gear Solid 5's Dark Souls-esque mechanic on full display.

Our man Alex has a new video where he gives you a quick look at the game's Forward Operating Bases (FOB) before he invades another player's base.

The point of invasions is to secure some of the valuable resources the other player accrued. According to Konami, the idea is create unlimited combinations of missions players can tackle. That's because everyone can choose exactly how to defend their FOB.

If you're still trying to figure out the whole Mother Base thing. Our guide has exactly what you need.
