Metal Gear Solid is considered by many to be among the best video game series of all time and while fans are waiting for Metal Gear Rising: Revengence, Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima has announced that there will indeed be a fifth game in the franchise, also has hinted at using conversation trees similar to the ones seen in Deus-Ex.
In an interview with IG Magazine, Kojima had this to say about Metal Gear Solid 5, “…I can tell you two things…There will be more infiltration, spying and convincing people to do you a ‘favor’ than in the previous MGS. I loved the idea idea of the social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution that we’ve seen. And if I say more about it, the ninja PR woman behind the door will chop me into pieces.”
Although Kojima was sure to clear up the fact that it will not be like Metal Gear Rising. ”Metal Gear Rising: Revengence never pretended to be Metal Gear Solid. It’s not a game aobut our beloved Solid Snake. It’s a spin-off that tries something different. We haven’t seen the last of Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots.”
Adding conversation trees would be a new but welcomed featured to this storied franchise. Some critics and fans weren’t the biggest fans of the long cutscenes. Being able to talk and interact with various people seems like a natural fit for Solid Snake to con some hapless trooper out of position.
There is no official release date, but with all of the new consoles on the way it seems like a safe bet that we will not see this sure to be hit on the current consoles.
