Metal Gear Timeline is good for those coming to the series and long time fans.
While you are double checking that your preorder of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain didn’t get screwed up, you should also be spending some time on a new site, brushing up on the timeline of the video game series. Metal Gear Timeline is the site that has taken it upon itself to chronicle everything that has happened in this series since the very first game was launched, decades ago. The site has a slick UI that allows you to go all along the timeline starting from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and going all the way to Metal Gear Rising Revengenace.
This site is even more important considering The Phantom Pain is smack dab in the middle of the series’ timeline. Kojima has loved playing with when these particular games are taking place and that can make it sort of difficult to remember and know just what has happened and when. Of course, the site is also geared towards people who understand the mythology and lore of the series. There aren’t a ton of helpful explanations about characters or things like that. This is a true timeline, expecting those who are seeking the site out to have an understanding of what they are looking at.
Still, the site is pretty good prep as a way to brush up before the newest game officially launches. It just shouldn’t be the only place you go if you need to truly understand everything this game universe has to offer. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is launching for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC starting on September 1.
