Storyline

In the aftermath of the events of "Ground Zeroes" and the destruction of Militaires Sans Frontières, Big Boss falls into a coma. Nine years later, he awakes and forms a new mercenary group, the Diamond Dogs. Now under the guise of the codename "Venom Snake", he ventures into Afghanistan during the Soviet war to track down the men responsible for MSF's destruction. Along the way, he becomes reacquainted with his former rival Ocelot and encounters a unit of warriors robbed of their past, present and future. While he and Kazuhira "Kaz" Miller are initially driven to exact revenge, Snake soon unearths a plot by the Cipher organization to develop a weapon with the potential to surpass even the Metal Gear system, and his mission quickly switches focus to ending this new threat.

Trivia

DLC was released to allow the purchase of the Tuxedo, Fatigues and Sneaking Suit used by Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (2004) for male soldiers. There is also DLC for Eva's Jumpsuit and The Boss's Sneaking Suit for female soldiers. See more »

Goofs

One of the gameplay mechanics is called "Reflex Mode", which slows down the time from the player's point-of-view when they have to react to having been visually caught by the enemy. However, the scientific definition for the word 'reflex' is "an involuntary movement in response to a stimulus." The correct term would be "Reaction Mode", as the scientific definition for 'reaction time' is "the elapsed time between a sensory stimulus and the subsequent behavioral response." See more »

Quotes

Skull Face: You too have known loss. And that loss torments you still.
[his XOF guards stand before Snake ready to fire]
Skull Face: [Skull Face lowers their weapons] You hope hatred... might someday replace the pain. But it never goes away. It makes a man hideous inside and out.
Skull Face: [removes his hat] Wouldn't you agree? We both are demons. Our humanity won't return. You. Me. We've no place to run, nowhere to hide. And that is why I will show you my demon.
Skull Face: [puts on his hat] Follow me, Big Boss.
