Big Boss Has His Revenge In Gamescom Trailer For Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain; PC Requirements Detailed

The fallout between Konami and esteemed developer and Metal Gear grandfather Hideo Kojima has long overshadowed the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – did Kojima hint of his departure in Ground Zeroes? What happens to the series from this point forth? – but in many ways the imminent departure has generated more interest in The Phantom Pain.

Bringing an end to an era that few video game franchises can hold a candle to, Kojima’s final entry into the series looks to maintain Metal Gear‘s penchant for idiosyncratic supervillains, with new looks at Skull Face and a supernatural man wielding a mask – perhaps a cue to Psycho Mantis from Shadow Moses?

There’s also more teases of the character’s motivations, with Kiefer Sutherland’s Big Boss on a quest for revenge, aided by his partner-in-war-crime Kazuhira Miller following their work together on the Militaires Sans Frontières and Diamond Dogs operations.

Shortly before this new trailer was unleashed, Konami also detailed the minimum and recommended PC requirements you’ll need to run Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Porting the open-world sequel over to the platform proved to be a trying task for the studio, with Konami’s Tomotada Tashiro noting that “[the team] initially did not think it would be possible to get such an epic game out onto PC in time for launch alongside its console counterparts, but all involved have worked diligently to meet the demands of our PC consumers.”

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will bring an end to Hideo Kojima’s tenure at the helm of the medium-defining franchise on September 1. Metal Gear Online, meanwhile, won’t be released onto the consoles until October, while PC players will have to wait until 2016.
