phantom pain multiplayerHideo Kojima has recently unveiled new plans for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and it's sounding pretty exciting. Whilst the main experience for Metal Gear Solid V will be within the single player experience, Kojima is offering more playability by adding a few new online features to the franchise.

Players will be able to spend in-game currency on their very own mother base, a sea based facility, that will have plenty of customization potential. Interestingly, players will be able to edit and customize their own mother base both from within the game and from a smartphone device.

Kojima didn't reveal too much information, but he did state to CVG in an interview that, "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."

You may be wondering where the online portion of all this comes into play. As it turns out, other players will be able to infiltrate your mother base, and you will be able to do the same to other players, too. I can imagine different reward can be given for both infiltrating and building decent defenses, but we'll probably hear more solid details in the future.

The Phantom Pain is currently still in development, but hopefully we'll see a release sooner now that many more games have been put in the lineup for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
