Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

The Complete Official Guide



“It has taken me 28 years to perfect the formula of combining nonlinear infiltration with adventure novel storytelling and the result is MGSV, a game with unprecedented freedom of action and a new narrative approach. As you can imagine, the astonishing depth and complexity of the full experience begs for an extensive guide. This book is the result of many months of love and labor from our great friends at Piggyback and our team. Enjoy!”
