Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain E3 trailer amazes

Metal Gear Solid 5 has been revealed as an Xbox One title, by way of a lengthy gameplay trailer at Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference. The visually impressive, highly cinematic trailer, set in a gorgeously detailed  open-world Afganistan and featuring another Bond-style theme song, looks to be a radical departure for the series. 

Promising real-time weather, a persistent day/night cycle, "unparalleled strategic freedom" and a whole load of vehicles Metal Gear Solid 5 looks like a genuine new start for the series, appearing to play like a blend of the close stealth the series is known for and the kind of long-range, tactical navigation seen in the Far Cry series.

    Wow, usually I've never even considered playing a Metal Gear game but this, this may have actually changed my mind. Looking forward to hearing more :)

    This has got to be the best looking game I've ever seen. Everything about it looks incredible. This just shot right to the top of my most anticipated list.

    The greatest possible way to begin E3!

    Sutherland's voice sounded pretty good.

    It' just that I want MGS to be on the PS4 only.........maybe Wii U too.

    I think I may cry. MGS is by far my favourite franchise and this just looks... perfect. Well, as perfect as it can be without David Hayter(although I'm hoping they do a MGS2 style thing and let us play as adult Solid Snake for the end of the game, and David will be the voice) and not being a PlayStation exclusive.

    I did cry.
