Gamescom 2015: 30 minutes of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gameplay

The release of Konami’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is almost upon us, as the release date of September 1st is right around the corner. However with all the drama that’s been going on with Konami and Team Kojima, there has been some doubt that the game was going to be as good as it’s all hyped up to be. Sure Ground Zeros was a good game, but it was still very much a tech demo of what’s to come and had it’s fair share of mixed reviews.

But thanks to the recent Gamescom 2015 event, gamers were able to watch 30 minutes of gameplay footage from the upcoming title, which serves as a tutorial or overview of what to expect but it also gives a pretty good look at the gameplay, updated graphics and more importantly a look at the finished product. And it’s looking damned good, if this video can be any indication.

Check out the entire 30 minutes of gameplay footage captured from the PlayStation 4 version below:

Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain launches on September 1st, 2015 for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. For those wondering on how it will run, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions are capped at 720p/30fps, the PlayStation 4 version will run at 1080p/60fps, Xbox One at 900p (upscaled to 1080p) / 60fps and the PC will a max resolution of 4k (3840×2160)  resolution and a maximum of 60fps (sorry 144mhz monitor owners).

Will you be picking up the final chapter in Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid series and if so, which platform will you be getting it for.
