Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

Hideo Kojima is a man that has inspired a generation of artists, gamers, directors, writers and more. This year at Gamescom 2014, Kojima revealed new information about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

He revealed that Skull Face represents a person having lost their human side. Removing the skin from the face in this context, literally represents a removal of the characters humanity. He also comments on Big Boss becoming like a “skull”, saying that he loses some of his humanity whilst on his quest for vengeance.

In Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, the Militaires Sans Frontieres (Soldiers without Borders) insignia is designed around the hypothesized super continent Pangea of ancient earth which, when viewed at a slight angle, resembles a skull. Meaning that Snake and his allies have literally fought under a skull already before.

Kojima goes on to say that this is all part of a larger, sad subplot. The Phantom Pain is due early 2015 for the PS4, PS4,  Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Check out the latest gameplay footage of the game here.
