Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has finally been given a release date: September 1st 2015. Metal Gear Online will also launch along side the release of the Phantom Pain.

In the latest instalment of the Metal Gear Solid franchise Snake awakes from a nine year long coma, which was a result of the ending of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, The Phantom Pain’s prequel. Snake will embark on a personal journey for revenge. The journey will take him to Afghanistan sometime after his escape from the hospital. Snake, the games protagonist, will be voiced by Kiefer Sutherland.

The Phantom Pain is touted to be Hideo Kojima’s last Metal Gear game, and will also act as a prequel to Metal Gear, the series’ first game.

A collectors edition of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is now also available to pre order. The collectors edition will include:
