Metal Gear Solid 5 finally lets you play as sniper Quiet

Messy spinoff Metal Gear Survive might not have landed with much grace, but Konami know better than to kill their golden goose; Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Even if its exiled director is busy hanging out with Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, they've still got a few people working on MGS5, and their latest annual update finally gives players the chance to play…

Metal Gear Survive is out now

Wormhole spin-off Metal Gear Survive is out today, flinging off the tactical espionage trousers of its heritage and donning the “survive waves of zombies” windbreaker. Obviously, this makes the Kojima-free game look very stupid, walking around in its underpants. But don’t worry, they made a launch trailer to cover up its bottom half. It’s got the robots and desperate dives of its Fox Engine daddy,…

Metal Gear Solid V prematurely celebrates nuclear disarmament

After two-and-a-half-years, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC has finally unlocked a hidden cutscene celebrating complete nuclear disarmament. This has been a semi-secret community challenge, waiting for players to destroy all nukes built by players in the game's 'Forward Operating Base' multiplayer invasion mode. However! In a very Metal Gear-y conspiracy theory twist, it seems that celebrations are premature, because Konami say…

Fallout 4 stealth mod borrows some Metal Gear tricks

Though stealth has always been an element of the Fallout games, it's never been interesting stealth. It's been powerful at times, sure, but always a bit bland and never explored in much depth (hey, it's an RPG, not a sneak 'em up). A new mod for Fallout 4 attempts to shake this up a little by introducing two Metal Gear Solid-ish sneaky tricks: whistling and…

Metal Gear Survive shambles towards a Feburary launch

Been a while since we heard from Metal Gear Survive, Konami's co-op focused Metal Gear V spinoff. It was originally slated for a 2017 launch, Konami fell silent while estranged series director Hideo Kojima started his own independent studio, which I'm still half-convinced is just an excuse to hang out with Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen Admit it, you'd do it too. While perhaps a little…

Metal Gear Survive delayed into 2018

The still-surprising Metal Gear Solid V spin-off Metal Gear Survive [official site], where Snake's MSF pals are sucked through a portal to a world crawling with zombies, has been delayed. Konami confirmed during E3 that it won't make its planned 2017 launch, being pushed back a few months so they can work on it more. They want it to be good, y'see. It's now expected…

Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience Released

If you're one of those "I'll wait for the Game of the Year Edition" types, good news: a new stealth game called Metal Gear Solid V [official site] has just become available to you, and I think you really might like it. Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience has arrived on PC, packing both the small, directed MGS V: Ground Zeroes and the sprawling…

Fulton Risen Blues: Metal Gear Survive

If the very mention of Metal Gear Survive [official site], an MGS V cooperative zombie survival spin-off, makes you fume and spit like a malfunctioning furnace, the fifteen minutes of in-game footage below might not convince you to reconsider. I'm willing to give it a chance though, partly because the wide open spaces of The Phantom Pain seem well-suited to spotting of distant hordes, but…

Metal Gear Survive Bringing Co-op Zombie-Hunting

What will Konami do with Metal Gear Solid now series maestro Hideo Kojima has gone off to start a new studio and impregnate Norman Reedus? Oh, you know: zombie survival. Konami today announced the first post-Kojima Metal Gear, Metal Gear Survive. It's a co-op spin-off set in an alternate universe where some of Big Boss's pals got sucked into sky and appeared in zombielandia. No,…

Kojima Productions Announce Death Stranding

Metal Gear maestro Hideo Kojima has announced Death Stranding [official site], the first game from his new studio. It may or may not involve beached whales, crabs with cables coming out their guts, a nude Norman Reedus, a cyberbaby, and mysterious hovermen, going by the cinematic E3 trailer. I am delighted that Kojima's first game away from Konami seems to be going hard on the…

Metal Gear Online’s Cloaked In Silence DLC Out Now

After laying bare its details at the beginning of the month, the Cloaked in Silence DLC for Metal Gear Online [official site] is out now. On top of three new maps and unlimited access to the upcoming Survival mode, the expansion adds the formidable photosynthesising sniper Quiet to its ranks. Come see her in action:

Metal Gear Online’s Cloaked In Silence DLC This Month

Expert sniper Quiet is joining Metal Gear Online [official site] as a playable special character in the upcoming 'Cloaked in Silence' DLC, and I'm sorely disappointed in everyone who won't get into character by humming over voice comms whenever they see an enemy. The add-on will also chuck in three new maps and give unlimited access to a new mode which will only allow non-DLCers…

Metal Gear Online Bursts Out Its Beta Box

Sure, you've defeated the entire Soviet army in Metal Gear Solid V [official site] by throwing hunks of metal at soldiers' faces then telling your dog to bite them, but that will only work on actual humans five times - tops - before someone calls the rozzers. But you can now test your sneaking (and face-shooting) skills against actual humans virtually, beyond the base invasion…

Metal Gear Online Beta Launching Today

I've just realised that Metal Gear Solid codenames follow the same pattern as tech startups and game studios. Pick an animal, slap an adjective on the front and there you go, you're now Flatulent Badger; you're Scarlet Dolphin; you're Indigo Axolotl. You'll blow away either investors with a proposal to disrupt e.g. the shoe-tying industry with an app to have someone come round and tie…

Ban The Bomb: Unlocking MGS V’s Secret Nuke Event

We're about 11,000 nukes away from Snake and pals throwing a shindig in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] - disarming 11k of them, that is. You might've seen a while back that folks had uncovered cinematics celebrating nuclear disarmament, but it wasn't entirely clear what they were or how to trigger them. Welp, Konami have now confirmed that, as guessed, it'll…

Metal Gear Solid V Adds More Guns and Gizmos

Half-way through Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site], I had enough swanky guns and gear that most challenge was self-imposed as I toyed with weird strategies. So how come a new update has just added a load of new Grade 7 and 8 tech? Forward Operating Base invasions, innit. (Also, dang, they're pretty cool.) It's interesting to see development shift focus now…

Metal Gear Solid V’s Costume DLC Is Out, Bugged, Tacky

Big Boss ordering a soldier into battle dressed as a sexy version of his ambiguous mentor/mother/lover figure who he himself killed is an unusual move even for a chap who abducts people with balloons, but this is Metal Gear. The curious MGS3-inspired DLC costumes for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] have arrived. They're outfits for male and female soldiers, Snake included,…

RPS Asks: Are You Invading Players’ Bases In MGS V?

Though I quite cheerily murdered folks in Dark Souls by invading their world - hey, look, everyone knows spooky woods have murderous guardians - I've yet to invade another player's base in Metal Gear Solid V [official site]. 120 hours in, no one has invaded my own Forward Operating Base either. Loading MGS up this morning to see what a new patch brought, I noticed…
