The Phantom Pain Will Not Allow Free Roaming During Missions

By   /   Oct 27, 2014

Hideo Kojima in his latest episode of Kojima Station has revealed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will not remain open world when you are on a mission.

He continued on to explain that the game is completely open for the players to roam about and do side missions and other activities, however, once they have decided to embark on a mission, then they will have to stay in the specified mission area.

The missions, this time around will not be taken from the main menus, instead they will be a part of the open world of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The structure of missions in the upcoming title is quite similar to MGS: Ground Zeroes, as you will be confined to a place when on the mission but after you are done with it, you will be able to explore the open world.

Kojima also mentioned that the upcoming title currently has “a lot of voice work left” to do, which they are hoping to complete sooner rather than later.

Currently, there is no solid release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but it is expected to launch sometime in 2015.
