With METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER recently confirmed as a May 25th launch on the PSP, Konami is giving people the chance to get an early taste of one of 2010’s most highly anticipated games with an extensive playable demo. Available via the PlayStation Store and Konami.com the free demo titled “METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER: DEMO-OPS” showcases four mission types featuring new content previously playable only on the show floor of the Tokyo Game Show, and more.
METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER marks the return of the world-renowned stealth-action series. Hand-crafted by series creator Hideo Kojima, the all-new sequel delivers an original game design, story, and scenario as it picks up where METAL GEAR SOLID 3: SNAKE EATER for the PlayStation 2 leaves off.
The game is set in Central America in 1974, as players take control of the famed Naked Snake (Big Boss): the legendary hero who had once saved the world from the brink of nuclear war. Snake has now turned his back on his mother country and established ‘An Army without a Government’ in South America, and is approached by visitors from ‘A Nation without a Military’ to investigate suspicious activity in the peaceful paradise of Costa Rica. Amidst the turmoil of the cold war, Costa Rica alone had managed to be a beacon of peace in a region torn by conflict, but all of that may change.
METAL GEAR SOLID PEACE WALKER: DEMO-OPS will be available today on the PlayStation Store. The demo will also be available for download through various gaming websites as well. The full METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER experience will be released exclusively for PSP system on May 25th.
