Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain - First Look - E3 2013

Look over Moby Dick Studio's The Phantom Pain. 

Brace yourself for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain as we take a First Look at the much-anticipated tenth entry (canonically speaking) of the critically acclaimed stealth action-adventure video game series. 

During last year's Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), we had our first look at Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, the latest chapter in the long-running critically acclaimed stealth action-adventure video game series created by Hideo Kojima. Originally announced to be a prologue to Metal Gear Solid 5, we were blown away by both the breathtaking open world gameplay and tremendous graphic prowess powered by Kojima Productions' Fox game engine. Nevertheless, we are clueless as to when exactly will the title be released if at all.

Then came last year's Spike Video Game Awards where a teaser trailer for a game entitled "The Phantom Pain" was unveiled. Presenting a psychedelic adventure with a Survivor Horror vibe, The Phantom Pain was credited to an unknown Swedish developer known as Moby Dick Studio headed by one Joakim Mogren. 

A unique and intriguing title by its own, speculation on the dubious nature of The Phantom Pain soon became widespread across gaming communities. For one, the protagonist bearing an uncanny resemblance to Naked Snake, AKA Big Boss, and the fact that the name, Joakim, is an anagram of Kojima.

At this year's GDC (Game Developers Conference), Kojima finally unveiled his latest con with an official trailer.

Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are in fact one and the same and the official title for Metal Gear Solid 5 is Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain. And on the first day of E3, a new trailer of the finalized title has been unveiled at the Microsoft press conference.

With no further ado, brace yourself for some good ol' stealth now mixed with open world elements with the extended director's cut version of the trailer right after the jump.

And here are some of the images released thus far.

Posters released for the title.

Release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has yet to be finalized.
