Kojima Shows Off The Tech Behind Metal Gear Solid 5

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was revealed to the world during GDC 2013, but Hideo Kojima also delivered a keynote speech at the same time, to talk about the FOX Engine.

The FOX Engine is the latest piece of technology from Kojima Productions. We've heard a lot about it in the past, even going as far back as 2011, but Kojima's GDC talk goes into incredible depth.

Since the keynote is designed for developers, a lot of the keynote was about how the technology is capable of doing what it does. This means there's lots of talk about lighting, cameras, diffusers and synthesizing. There's still plenty in there for gamers to be excited about though as footage from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid titles is spliced in between standard presentation slides.

The full video is an hour long and talks about some of the processes which are being used for Metal Gear Solid 5, specifically Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

We now know that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be a two part game. The first part will be Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, a game that will take place in 1974 directly after Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. This will be followed up by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which will take place in 1983.

Although it's been saidbefore, Kojima has noted once again, that this time Metal Gear Solid V will be his last Metal Gear title. He is looking to retire from the series after the production of these two games.
