New MGS4 Gameplay Footage Video
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is only about five weeks away now, and with each passing day, we get closer to experiencing what many expect to be the finest stealth/action experience in history. And now, after an exclusive XPlay feature boasting plenty of new gameplay, the fans are even more excited (if that's humanly possible).
First, they take us through a section where the player controls a droid, which has stealth camouflage and even a weapon in the form of an electric shock that stuns enemies. Then, we're treated to an intense section of combat where Snake and his friends storm a house loaded down with Ocelot's gang. Honestly, it's possibly the most amount of all-out action we've ever seen in any MGS title, and the level of AI - for both allies and opponents - is impressive. We feel sorry for the all-female, wall-climbing pack of soldiers under Ocelot's control, but hey, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. Lastly, we get a chance to see the rocket launcher - sweet! - and as one final detail, bullets will penetrate certain objects. You can see Snake get hit when crouching behind a wooden obstacle, for example.
Well, there's not much else to say. Now you just have to watch it to fully appreciate the greatness of the gameplay. We kinda figured it'd be awesome, but we'll take this as early vindication.
