Watch Metal Gear Solid 5's cinematic introduction, starring Kiefer Sutherland

Now that we've seen 12 minutes of Metal Gear Solid 5 in action, it's time to get down to the important stuff: elaborate, slightly confusing cutscenes. Konami published the first nine minutes of MGS 5 this week, including Kiefer Sutherland's take on Snake's meta catchphrase.

In case you're still confused (we don't blame you), this is indeed the introduction to Ground Zeroes--the ten-year-removed prologue to The Phantom Pain. Much like Metal Gear Solid 2's Tanker Mission and Metal Gear Solid 3's Virtuous Mission, the bulk of the game is yet to come.

MGS 5 will hit PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, and it will release when Hideo Kojima decides he's done with it.
