>A new re release of Phantom Pain is being announced at Gamescom by Konami. Some of the press was shown it on Friday.
>Intention behind the release is to win back Western audience after the backlash that Survive got.
>They got Fukushima to helm the project, he's also the main writer. Team is Metal Gear veterans, with people who worked on Portable Ops and Ghost Babel on board.
> Game reuses everything from the base game, but restructures and recontextualize the story/cutscene.
>Full English redub (Japanese cast is mostly the same) with Big Boss being voiced by Richard Doyle, his MGS4 voice actor. Kiefer is, however, still in, voicing Ishmael and the Medic, with a handful of new lines (is in more of cameo role then anything) James Horan as Skullface, and Downes as Kaz are the only real returning actors.
>Story has been completely changed, and has approximately three hours of completely new cutscenes, and quite a bit of the old ones have been extremely edited.
>Ground Zeroes is fully integrated into the game, and serves as a prologue.
>One such example is a revamped intro, in which it depicts Morpho's crash at the end of GZ, in which you have limited control of Big Boss, crawling through the wreckage, and watching a XOF kill team lead by Skullface, killing a bunch of survivors, which is the trailer in it's entirety.
>Abducts Chico, and Skullface is about to deliver the coup de grace on Boss, when the Medic attacks him from behind. A small, but brutal CQC battle ensures, with Skullface eventually overwhelming Venom, before he's killed with a knife to his throat.
>Snake and Kaz are saved at the last minute, by a gunship, forcing XOF to retreat with Chico in tow. Trailer ends with Boss losing conscious, as he's being dragged into a heli by Cipher Special Forces led by Ocelot.
>To make things clear, the game is intended to stomp out Kojima''s vision of the series (despite the rendition being built on alot of unused concepts Hideo discarded).
>Reflected in the title, which is Metal Gear Solid 5, instead of V.
>Some discard previously, but brought back ideas include the hospital escape being far more horrific and demonic, Boss hallucinates the staff as Undead horrors.
>Quiet has been...reworked. The character has been split into two. "Quiet" now dies in the hospital after being set on fire "by" Ishmael (whose legit a hallucination/spirit of Venom) the AI buddy ally half of her character is now a Ukraine sniper, Albatross, a completely new character. Fully clothed, she's a mercenary in league with the Soviets. Still an AI buddy, but much more mundane, and is a associate of Ocelot.
> You get to bring generic Diamond Dog soldiers with you on missions, they act as expendable buddies. (And can be perma killed)
>D.D, D.Horse, and D.Walker are in unchanged.
>Entirely new buddies include Battle Gear, which was previously cut from the game. Basically the Zeke building segment of Peace Walker...with the addition of being able to drive it (deploying cost alot though). And Red. (Chico as he was supposed to be in Phantom Pain. Is also a midgame boss.)
>Only characters consist to their PP portrayal are Kaz (whose still an angry prick with the same role) and Huey (whose still a treasonous bastard) Ocelot and Skullface might as well be two completely different characters. Code Talker has been cut.
>Is being billed as a "game as a service". Reworked Kingdom of the Flies is a pre order bonus, and they'll be addition sub narratives as DLC. Only way really the higher ups greenlighted the project in the first place.
>Release date is December this year.
>PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Switch is getting a vanilla. Phantom Pain port.
>FOB is still in (with more microtransactions. MGO3 was deemed a total failure and will not be included.

I would buy it if true. But keep this obviously with a huge grain of salt, especially considering the source.

Sorry for thread whining, but why are we making threads on 4chan posts with nothing to support it?

Not a fan of re-releases of games I have already played with a splash of new features and content (looking at you, Persona 5 Royale and MGS5 Demon Edition -if real-) so...weak. But I guess this is the best the "new Konami" is going to be able to deliver from now on...

Konami is making way too much money doing less risky shit. They have no reason to funnel money into this.

The "other consoles get the new big thing whilst the Nintendo console is left with the scraps," bit is the most believable part here.

Everything else just seems way too far-fetched, and considering it's a 4chan rumour with nothing to back it up... yeah It's fake.

So it's kind of going to be one of those Chinese Pokémon knock off's that look just Pokémon enough but they just put everything in a blender and hope it works out.

You know what. Screw it, I want in on this. If I ain't getting Splinter Cell at least give me an excuse to replay MGSV.
You'd think they would put the time and money on a new game but with no Kojima at the helm, this seems like the thing they would do.

Sounds too good to be true but I guess we'll know soon enough if it's real or not if they're supposed to be unveiling it at gamescom.

The hilarity of the timing of Konami releases a project designed to “remove Kojima from Metal Gear” a month after Kojima releases his newest game, likely to critical acclaim.

Day one of true. I'm also quite curious with the redub idea but it would make more sense Kiefer for Big Boss (+Venom) and Doyle for Ishmael.

This is the funniest stuff I've read here in ages.

I would be interested in this hypothetical version if it was an update/expansion of MGSV, but this sounds like it would be a completely different game. And with this:

"To make things clear, the game is intended to stomp out Kojima''s vision of the series"

I'm completely out. That being said, I don't think it's real.
