Metal Gear Solid 5 - Trailer

If you've been staying in touch with the Metal Gear series, I'm sure you've seen yesterday's news! It turns out that disturbing game announced awhile back "The Phantom Pain" was actually Metal Gear Solid 5; however that's not all! Remember Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes? Yep, that's a part of Metal Gear Solid 5 as well! It turns out the game will take place in parts, with The Phantom Pain being the more linear section of the game, while Ground Zeroes will really open it up, and turn it into that open world game we've all been waiting for!

UPDATE: It turns out Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid 5 will be their own games, but they will be closely tied together. Ground Zeroes is the game that will set up the events of Metal Gear Solid 5, while Metal Gear Solid 5 will be the "main title." Currently it is unknown if Metal Gear Solid 5 will be open world like Ground Zeroes, or if it'll be more linear. Although I would like to point out that Kojima said he wasn't sure if people would buy Ground Zeroes due to its taboo themes; however if it is released along side Metal Gear Solid 5, that may just get it sales.

So anyway, how about we take a look at that trailer? It isn't as freaky as the original "Phantom Pain" trailer, but it does have its moments.

What do you guys think? Really I was quite shocked to hear that The Phantom Pain was actually MGS5, and I never expected THAT to happen to Big Boss. Then again we as players haven't really seen him without his gloves on. On a side note, did anyone else notice the guy who looked like Psycho Mantis? Or notice the fact that Big Boss's new hand looks just like the one from Piece Walker?
