Metal Gear Solid V Phantom Pain features multiplayer Mother Base invasions

Players will also be able to use smart devices to design their off-shore HQ

Hideo Kojima has offered a few new details about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's online features.

Each player will have their own customisable Mother Base, an off-shore facility which houses resources and can be upgraded using in-game currency.


"People who want to create a Mother Base in a very detailed way will be able to design it through the interface, or using their smart device," Kojima told CVG in a new Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain interview.

"I cannot talk too much," he added, "but for people who saw the presentation, it ends with your Mother Base being attacked. People can infiltrate you, and you can infiltrate other people's Mother Base."

Kojima said in January that The Phantom Pain will be hundreds of times larger than Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the standalone prelude released in March (compare world maps here).

No official release date has been set for Phantom Pain, but Kojima told Famitsu last November he would likely launch the game "around the time" that PS4 becomes widely adopted.
