Good Lord, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Will Be Massive

During what has to be the best-named information event of all time, the pre-E3 Kojipro show, Hideo Kojima and the Metal Gear Solid team revealed the massive scale of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The admittedly confusing image shows the size of every Metal Gear game’s world (outside of Portable Ops) superimposed on what appears to be a map of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain‘s environment. When Kojima stated that The Phantom Pain will be 200 times larger than Ground Zeroes, he clearly wasn’t lying. Fans of the series should be excited about this news, as the series’ new sandbox-style gameplay mechanics combined with this massive world should make The Phantom Pain one of 2015’s most exciting games.
