Blimey, Konami’s controversy-ridden Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is starting to sound a bit like GTA V.
The stealth/action title was recently rated by the PEGI ratings board where the descriptors made note of extreme violence and motiveless killing as well as violence towards innocent people. It’s not abundantly clear whether the player will be the one who kills without motive and it’s also unclear if the harming of innocents will be conducted by those who hold the gamepad. If it turns out players will be turned loose with the ability to mow down random civilians then Hideo Kojima’s final Konami game could well be in for another bout of controversy when it hits store shelves this September.
