E3 2013: New Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain media released

A new trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain premiered at E3 earlier today. The next installment in the long-running franchise will be available for 360, PS3, PS4, and Xbox One, but the footage is from a next-gen version. The nine-minute-plus video posted is the red-band director’s cut, which includes additional material and graphical content. The trailer gives a glimpse at what Kojima Productions has in store for fans of the series: an open world, real-time weather, large environments, realistic passage of time, and horses. Some very brave horses. Ten new screens have also been posted.

E3 2013: Ubisoft reveals action-RPG Tom Clancy’s The Division

It seems as though Ubisoft has had an ace up their sleeve for some time with Tom Clancy’s The Division. Announced during their E3 conference, the Massive Entertainment-developed title is an open-world action-RPG set in New York three weeks after a pandemic hit the city during Black Friday. Since the outbreak, social order has collapsed and The Division, a secret unit of self-supporting agents, has been activated and sent in by the President. The trailer shown during the show has been made available, and it’s looking very good, with a mixture of co-op player-versus-environment and player-versus-player gameplay.
