Tokyo Game Show 2013 Presents Gameplay For MGSV, FFXV
Well, at least MGSV still looks like Metal Gear Solid.
Developers took the opportunity to show off gameplay for their anticipated productions at the Tokyo Game Show. This resulted in never-before-seen footage for Final Fantasy XV, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Deep Down. We get plenty of gameplay for all three, and all were shown running on the PlayStation 4.
First up is FFXV, which is apparently an action game with some stats, but that's about what we expected, anyway. It's definitely a very pretty presentation, and there could be some platforming involved as well, as we see Noctis climbing around on an airship at one point. The combat is fast and furious and it's difficult to see where any of the role-playing elements might come into play. But who knows?
Next is MGSV, which shows off a very stealthy and competent Snake. He may be older but he still has all the moves, and that includes hiding the bodies of knocked out foes. He'll also have more gadgets than we've ever seen before, and the more open environment guarantees us more opportunities and freedom. This could be the most epic MGS ever created!
Last is Capcom's "online RPG," Deep Down, which is currently only confirmed for the PS4. This gameplay shows off something that is very reminiscent of Dark Souls, or perhaps a blend of the latter and The Elder Scrolls. It's dark and foreboding, and the main character must do battle with some seriously intimidating enemies. Personally, I lost interest when I found out you had to be connected to play, but the game still has tons of promise for those who like the idea.
