The video game’s maker recently announced that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain would feature a hidden nuclear event that can be accessed after a series of conditions are met. But late last week Konami also unveiled conditions to unlock Metal Gear Solid 5’s secret event, and it seems that they involve a lot of teamwork.
Although we do not know much about the event – we do know that it revolves around nuclear weapons – Konami Japan said that the conditions are very strict.
It is not the first time, however, that the company chooses to hide things inside Metal Gear Solid. Nevertheless, the latest secret event won’t require you to redo the same mission six times more.
The conditions would be more complex such as achieving nuclear disarmament on an entire server. But that is just one condition on a list of four. The other three conditions are (1) players need to complete Mission 31; (2) you will have to either own or be working on a nuclear weapon; (3) “nuclear proliferation”-related conditions need to be met on either PSP 4 or PC servers. The forth condition will be met when all nuclear weapons on a server are neutralized.
Still, the condition for nuclear disarmament may sound impossible because it is highly unlikely to persuade all players of a game that currently sold over 5 million copies and counting to ditch their weapons. Konami explained that the requirement would apply only to regional servers.
Moreover, many Metal Gear Solid 5 players seem to be very interested in the secret event because nuclear proliferation dropped to alarming levels on both PSP 4 and PC platforms ever since Konami unveiled some cutscenes on the event a few months ago.
The company also said that the event would start automatically as soon as all conditions are met and a player completes a mission and is able to return to his or her base.
Some may have noticed that the nearly-impossible-to-trigger event and visible anti-nuclear message attached to it bear the mark of Hideo Kojima, the beloved game director which left Konami on Oct. 19 after working with the company for nearly three decades.
Although Konami’s ambitions to make so many players co-operate in order to unlock the event may seem huge, the franchise has a history of trying (and succeeding) to connect with its fans. For instance, the Japanese video game maker recently said that it would back the idea promoted by an amputee player to design a prosthetic limb similar to Snake’s.
