The worst kept secret in video games was officially unveiled today as Hideo Kojima announced at GDC that The Phantom Pain was indeed Metal Gear Solid 5. But he also had a bit of an ace up his sleeve and said that both The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes combine together to make Metal Gear Solid 5.

It seems like the official title will be Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. A new trailer was shown that combined footage from both previous trailers of The Phantom Pain and MGS: Ground Zeroes as well as some new info. It seems Snake has been in a coma for the past nine years and the initial hospital escape shown in The Phantom Pain trailer back in December will serve as the game’s tutorial and opening.

The game was running on a PC on the new FOX Engine and should be pretty close to what the final build will look like when the game releases, presumably on the Playstation 4.

Before you watch the trailer below just remember this is a Kojima trailer which means to fully understand the depth of what is happening you need to get sloppy drunk with some Kentucky bourbon, preferably Woodford Reserve. Then, get good and addicted to heroin. I am talking about Jared Leto in Requiem for a Dream addicted . Finally, you must stab an adrenaline shot directly into your heart and press play on the video.

Perfect understanding awaits…enjoy the trailer!!
