Mark the date, June 12th. That’s when Konami will release the final chapter in the Solid Snake saga.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a story-driven game, with seasoned hero Solid Snake drafted for one final mission. Set across stages including the Middle East and South America, the now aged Snake has been asked to assassinate his old adversary, Liquid Ocelot.
To do this, however, he must make his way through a series of battlefields, using his legendary stealth abilities and all-new OctoCamo suit to avoid detection and to reach his target.
With series favourites such as Meryl Silverburgh, Raiden, Hal ‘Otacon’ Emmerich, and Roy Campbell returning, and with all new gameplay features including a remote-controlled ‘Metal Gear Mk. II’ droid and enhanced CQC (Close Quarters Combat) system, MGS4 will round out the Metal Gear saga with a fittingly cinematic and gripping final outing.
Konami also confirmed that Playstaton players who pre-order starting in April will get a bonus: Metal Gear Saga 2.0, a DVD to get you up to speed on the series, as well as a beta code for Metal Gear Online.
Watch for it!
