The full Afghanistan map for the upcoming game Metal Gear Solid: Phantom Pain has been finally revealed.
According to Geek Snack, journalists who took part in the ongoing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Boot Camp 2015 were shown the full extent of the map. A journalist from videogame magazine Famitsu photographed the map and leaked it online. The image is now making the rounds in the Internet and is going viral among eager fans of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Gameranx.com noted that the map is actually a physical map that players can get their hands on, but only if they purchase the collector’s edition of the game when it is released.
The website also noted the size of the map, stating that the large area encompassed by the map could aLao pave the way for an open world gaming experience.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is set to hit shelves on September 1, and will be available for download via Steam on September 15. The game can be played on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Geek Snack said the game will be released simultaneously in all regions.
According to Movie Pilot, due to the closure of Kojima Productions, all references to Hideo Kojima, the game’s legendary director for the entirety of the franchise, had to be removed in all promotional materials for Phantom Pain.
However, Movie Pilot said, a recent tweet by Ken-ichiro Imaizumi showed that Kojima’s name remained in promotional materials in Japan, especially in pre-order box art. However, it still remains to be seen whether Kojima’s name actually appears in the final products that are sold by the time the game is released.
When downloading from Steam, Geek Snack revealed that PlayStation 4 gamers need to have 25.1 GB of space while PlayStation 3 owners have to set aside 11.7 GB in their hard drives.
