12 Minutes of 'Metal Gear Solid V'

Check out this 12-minute video, unveiled recently at the Tokyo Game Show, revealing gameplay from the upcoming 'Metal Gear Solid V.'

Hideo Kojima recently unveiled a 12-minute demo of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V at the Tokyo Game Show. The demo shows off the game's brilliant graphics, highlighted by amazing rain effects and cinematic lighting.

Kojima had previously announced that MGSV would be an open-world game.

Once he enters the camp, Big Boss (Naked Snake from MGS3), has plenty of freedom to find his target and escape. The camp is bigger than typical Metal Gear levels, which have historically been walled in and narrow, even in the jungles of MGS3. There's no health bar or radar system, but players will be able to highlight enemies by tagging them through their binoculars.

The demo is in Japanese, but this written preview from Kotaku can shed light on more of the game's elements. For the English version, 24's Kiefer Sutherland will voice Big Boss, replacing David Hayter, who has been the voice of Snake since the first Metal Gear Solid.

Metal Gear Solid V doesn't have a release date. It will be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as well as the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
