Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain for the ps4 is a separated composite of two previously announced Kojima Productions projects. The first was Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, originally revealed in a Fox Engine tech demo shown at the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary Party. The second was The Phantom Pain, a trailer at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, presented as an original title by fictional developer Moby Dick Studios, with the Metal Gear Solid V logo virtually obscured. The true nature of these two projects was revealed at the Game Developers Conference, where Kojima announced that Ground Zeroes serves as a prologue to The Phantom Pain and these two titles form one combined work, to be released separately.
Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain on PS4 continues the saga of the Snake soldier line, connecting storylines from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker & Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. The Phantom Pain is an upcoming open world action-adventure stealth game.

In The Phantom Pain, players will take the role of Venom Snake in a massive collection of open-world environments. The gameplay elements are largely unchanged from Ground Zeroes, meaning that players will have to sneak from several points in the game world, avoiding enemy guards and remaining undetected. Included in Snake's repertoire are binoculars, maps, pistols, assault rifles and explosives. Players may traverse the game world with vehicles such as cars and tanks, in addition to travelling on foot or on horseback, and as certain locations are mountainous, players can opt to scale a rock face as a short cut. They may also call for friendly helicopter support against enemy soldiers in a combat alert or send commandos to scout a target area.
Snake can also call on AI companions, including Quiet, a female soldier with supernatural abilities; as well as a horse with a customizable saddle for carrying more equipment on the field; and DD, a trained wolf aquired on the battlefield of war-torn Africa as a pup and trained on the new motherbase to assist him in the field. The companions' abilities and their effectiveness will depend on the player's relationship with them. As in Peace Walker, The Phantom Pain will offer a base-building feature that allows players to develop weapons and items from their home base. Recruitment of enemy soldiers and prisoners has also returned for this purpose, allowing the base to grow through organization.
