Metal Gear Solid V
Following up Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is something that many gamers thought that even the mad genius Hideo Kojima couldn’t accomplish, but with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes launching early next year, consider our anticipation fevered. The custom Fox Engine aims to bring brilliant amounts of detail to Big Boss’s world, but it’s the use of free-roaming mechanics that is getting our blood pumping. Moving such a venerable series into a massive world is ambitious, but it would be a lie to say that we aren’t curious to see how varied transportation and day-to-night cycles will affect the series’ trademark element of stealth. Metal Gear Solid is going open-world, and boy, are we anticipating it.
