In case you missed it, there was a Metal Gear Solid 5 event in Los Angeles yesterday. Our own David Roberts was there, along with selected members of the press, and while the event is embargoed until June 9th, plenty of info was tweeted out.
From that we have missions names, some kind of weapon called 'the Honey Bee', a research system to unlock gear, dynamic weather changing gameplay, a sense of scale (huge), the reveal that there are cyborg super soldiers (controlled by "someone familiar") and a bear. I am all about the bear. From this point in this game will be nothing until I Fulton the bear to my own private Mother Base zoo full of bears.
Anyhoo, the gallery up has some longer tweet sequences breaking down more of the game info, and here'a few picking out some interesting bits:
Man oh man though riding on this horse firing grenades at this tank in this beautiful open-world desert tho... #MGSVPreviewMay 12, 2015
At certain points the environments and level design are straight up photorealistic, music and sound as always are on point #mgsvpreviewMay 12, 2015
Plus, I need to find more soldiers to "recruit" using the Fulton recovery system in order to research a new rocket launcher.May 12, 2015
