Holy gameplay footage, Big Boss!

In addition to revealing the PlayStation console exclusive “Déjà Vu” bonus mission during the PlayStation 4 launch party, Konami has released a developer walkthrough showcasing 12 incredible minutes of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes gameplay running on a PS4. The footage, capturing the events of a Side Ops side mission, shows Snake sneaking into a base to make contact with an informant and retrieve a piece of intel before escaping the compound by any means necessary.

The seemingly blind enemy AI vision is a bit concerning for a hardcore stealth game, but the designer mentions at points that the mission has been modified for demonstration purposes so I’m fairly certain the difficulty was purposefully set at a lower level than what the actual game will offer. Other than that, the scale of the environment as well as the wealth of choices on how to approach each objective is nothing short of remarkable. Just the dynamic way that objectives and the battlefield change has me the most excited. Like how he first calls in a helicopter evac but fails to keep the chopper from being shot down, and thus has to find a different way to get the hell out of dodge.

Open world Metal Gear Solid tactical espionage action for the win!
