Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain announced for Xbox One [Update: trailer!]


Konami announced at Microsoft's E3 press conference today that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will debut for the Xbox One alongside previously announced ports for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Promising "tactical espionage redefined," Metal Gear Solid 5 boasts a new open-world take on the series, offering up real-time weather and multiple transportation options.

The game also includes a dynamic CQC system. The Phantom Pain's storyline, at least partially, seems to revolve around rescuing Kaz Miller, a character originally featured in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Konami did not reveal whether The Phantom Pain is exclusive to Xbox One, or if a release is planned for other platforms.

Update: Microsoft's Major Nelson confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 5 is not exclusive to the Xbox One.
