MGSV: The Phantom Pain gameplay features Big Boss running around in a cardboard box

Posted on June 5, 2014 AT 06:37am

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima shared around one and a half minutes of gameplay from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain during the latest episode of his webcast KojimaStation.

The footage shows Big Boss (Naked Snake, Punished Snake) hiding in a dumpster, before pulling out his trusty cardboard box and picking off a few guards. It also shows off something new that has been added to Big Boss’ arsenal, the ability to burst out the top of the cardboard box and surprise guards.

The game takes place nine years after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes with Big Boss waking from a coma.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain tells Metal Gear Solid V‘s main story—Ground Zeroes was the prologue—and is in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
