As a stupid big fat biased fan of the series, my favourite trailer of E3 was easily Metal Gear Solid 5. The visual upgrade, the controls, the open world, the scale. I've always felt like Metal Gear Solid features the best core mechanics of any major franchise, stealth or otherwise. Seeing that attention to detail expanded upon and placed inside an open world both terrifies and excites me. Here's what I'm trying to say: not enough people were talking about Metal Gear Solid 5 at E3!
Now, thanks to The Official PlayStation Magazine, more details are fleeing the coop. The most interesting of which is this: it seems as though Metal Gear Solid 5 will feature user created missions within the open world using tablet integration.
"You can use smartphones and tablets to interact with the world," explained Kojima. "That’s why we did an open world, because we thought about all these interactions on multiple devices.
"Using tablets and smartphones you can also enjoy MGS V and create user-generated missions within the world."
Tablet integration was a common theme at this year's E3. Ubisoft was especially sold on it with its upcoming next gen titles, and it seems as though Metal Gear Solid 5 will have similar integrations. But how will it all work? What options will tablet users have? It's all very intriguing. Can't wait to see more.
