Take a look at MGSV: The Phantom Pain’s base infiltration multiplayer

Posted on August 21, 2014 AT 05:35am

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain‘s base infiltration multiplayer feature has been shown off in a new video from Konami.

The early part of the video, hosted by IGN, shows the same mission from E3 being replayed with a different approach. You can read more about the differences here. However, at the end of the video we get a look at The Phantom Pain‘s multiplayer component that sees one player attempting to infiltrate another player’s base.

Players will be able to infiltrate other players’ bases to steal supplies, or they can defend their own if someone is trying to do the same to them. There are multiple options available for defending a base, such as soldiers, gun cameras, lasers, and more. Through research players can discover and place bigger and better defenses, and can also expand their base with more platforms making it harder for infiltrators to reach their goal.

An interesting mechanic is the ability to steal supplies from other players, and even recover your own stolen goods. There’s also the ability to capture soldiers and convince them to join your side. At the very end of the video below we see the invading player being spotted by the defending player, pretty much ending any chance of a stealth capture.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set to launch in 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
