Fan made Metal Gear game has risen from the ashes and has brought new talent on board.
Metal Gear Solid remake called Shadow Moses was a fan-made project being developed using Unreal Engine 4. Shadow Moses was progressing smoothly but we knew that at some point Konami would step in to put an end to it.
While we don’t know what happened to the project as devs refused to share any details before scraping it, the good news is that Metal Gear Solid is back and this fan made project is bringing in David Hayter to play Solid Snake.
The project won’t be called Shadow Moses anymore and will be a little different from what we have already seen. Developer revealed some details on their Facebook page, saying that new Metal Gear Solid is born from Shadow Moses and is going to feature VR support.
Born from the ‘Shadow Moses’ project, The Fan Legacy: Metal Gear Solid is a first-person experience allowing fans the opportunity to revisit some of the most emblematic MGS levels in the form of a virtual museum. There will be no need for stealth this time around.
The Fan Legacy: Metal Gear Solid will feature many pieces of amazing fan art from devoted lovers of the series and our collaborators. As an unofficial, non-profit production, the project is a gift, from the fans, but also addressed to the fans; to share our affection for the seminal franchise.
We are delighted to announce that the project, available for PC, will feature VR support.
We can also reveal that non-other than the legendary David Hayter will be involved in the project, which we are overjoyed by! The project will be released for free download in May, and we truly hope that you will enjoy the experience.
The Fan Legacy: Metal Gear Solid will release on PC but we hope they consider a console version and speak with Sony and Microsoft to release the game for free on PSN and Xbox Live Arcade.
