Today, during the Xbox Partner Preview livestream, Konami revealed the first gameplay look at the Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater remake.
The game was announced in May at the PlayStation State of Play, so it's only fair that the first gameplay is shown at an Xbox broadcast. A bit for everyone.
Konami claims that "all of the game's environments are rendered in Unreal Engine 5 and captured in-game in real time."
The trailer showcases pretty much what you can expect from a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which means a lot of sneaking and skulking, alongside lush jungle environment, the occasional enemy soldier, and some wildlife.
That being said, it's definitely fair to say that it looks awesome. While some may rightfully frown at the absence of Kojima Productions from the game's development, the team at work on this appears to know what they're doing, as you can see for yourself below.
While we already know that Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater is coming for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, we don't have the slightest idea on when it'll happen. No release date or window has been announced, so we'll have to wait and see,
That being said, if you find yourself starved for some more Metal Gear Solid, Konami just released Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol.1 yesterday for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. You can even purchase a physical copy.
It includes Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (the original one), so it's a good chance to make a comparison between today's gameplay reveal and what the game used to look like when it launched on PS2 all the way back in 2004.
To help yourself get in the mood, you can also listen to a catchy dedicated song performed by Vtuber Calliope Mori.
