In a powerful demonstration of the mantra “go big or go home,” Konami will be previewing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain not on a show floor, but at a special gala event in Cologne, Germany, the company has announced. The celebration will take place at the Cologne Musical Dome at 8 p.m. CET on August 13, coinciding with Gamescom 2014.
The event will also be streamed via Konami’s Twitch page, meaning you won’t have to be a globe-trotting super-spy in order to attend. Simply tune in at 11 a.m. Pacific / 2 p.m. Eastern to catch the preview as it happens.
A related Konami press release promises a live Q&A session with Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima, as well as “a few surprises.” Considering the last “surprise” turned out to be a massive fake-out revolving around a fake company and a Swedish pseudonym, we can’t even begin to imagine what Kojima has in mind.
