New MGSV Details: Length, No Swimming, Online For FOB

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain isn't far off now, and the game's Twitter page has been awfully active.

Thanks to those responses, we now have a few more details (which you can find summarized at GamingBolt).

First, the developers confirmed that the story mode in MGSV will indeed be longer (as anticipated) than in previous franchise entries. And of course, the inclusion of side missions will add to the longevity. Second, we find that Snake can't swim; he can only walk through shallow water. Third, it seems his iconic eye wear might be customizable; currently, different outfits change his eye wear but players can't change it individually (yet).

Lastly, if you want to play and build your own Forward Operating Base, you'll need either a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership. You will be able to customize that FOB offline but to actually use this element of the game, you need to be an online subscriber. Seems like a requirement in some way for almost any game made these days, but whatever.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain should rock your world on September 1, when it will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. And by the way, Konami recently confirmed the tech specs for the game.

If I recall correctly, every 'Metal Gear' has been at least a little bit longer than the entry before it. I just wonder if 'The Phantom Pain' will surpass 'Peace Walker', which I easily put 40+ hours into.

His arm is probably too heavy and would just sink, him with it.

I always found it odd when Kojima took out certain features. For example you couldn't crawl or fire from the prone position in Peace Walker but could in MGS3 and 4. Now you can't swim?

It could be because of the hardware limit of the PSP.

Only time I remember swimming in MG was when Raiden had to save Emma in MGS2.
