At some point during the destruction of Mother Base Big Boss is injured and falls into a coma. Recovering from his coma 9 years later in 1984, Big Boss wakens only to discover that he had lost his left arm. Soon after his recovery the hospital he is in comes under attack, but Big Boss manages to escape with the help of Ishmael, a man with bandages all over his face that claims to have been looking out for Big Boss while he was in his coma, and Ocelot.
Big Boss goes on to establish the Diamond Dogs, a new band of mercenaries, and gets himself a prosthetic arm. Big Boss, with the help of Ocelot, locates Kaz who is being held captive in Afghanistan. Big Boss rescues Kaz and the two men plan their revenge against Cipher.
Just like in Peace Walker players have the chance to build and expand their own miltary base. When out on missions players can use the Fulton Recovery System to recruit enemy soldiers to Diamond Dogs, soliders can then be put into departments to increase Mother Base's stats, this can allow for new weapons and items to be researched, or increase the recovery rate of injured soldiers, depending on the department.
However, unlike in Peace Walker, players have the chance to walk around their base, interacting with recruits and other characters. Snake can spar with soliders to help increase their CQC abilities, or he can head to the shooting range to help the recruits improve their effectiveness with a firearm. Mother Base can now be customized, each base will look different for each player depending on what they have built and upgraded. Things like A.A Guns and goats can be recruited while out on missions by using the Fulton Recovery System. You can then show off and compare your base with your friends. The base can be managed at any time, even while out on missions, by using the i-Droid.
Mother Base isn't always safe, it can come under attack. While out on missions you may end up upsetting certain groups of people and they might want to take revenge by attacking your base. Not only can other characters attack your base, but so can other players. Rival players can invade your base and hijake assets like soliders, weapons placements, and resources. Knowing your way around your base will become vital in defending it.

Kojima confirmed in this interview that they are making Metal Gear Online, working close with Kojima Productions LA.
"Yes, we plan on creating Metal Gear Online. Multiplayer right now is being created at our LA studio as well as us. We're working closely to create a vast multiplayer for all the fans."
I made this in the MGS forum before they decided they wanted to ruin the community by closing everything. It is probably of more use here now. I also decided to move it here so there is at least one constant thread that all the regulars from the MGS forum can post in, NOT THAT IT WILL EVER BE THE SAME.
The mods are trying to wipe us out, but they can't wipe out the gifs.
How long until they realize this was a stupid idea? Or have they already realized it and they just don't care?
i was thinking about making a MGS thread last night, you beat me to it.
Yeah, I wasn't sure if anyone else was going to do a thread so just decided I might as well. Hopefully some of the other guys see this thread.
To be honest it is a surprise we haven't all been banned by now. Given, I've been the least of the offenders, but still.
Also, it appears Idris Elba failed to save the MGS forum. Looks like he cancel the alockalypse after all.
I am excited MGSV. Particularly because I am excited to lose my mind as Big Boss and start running people over.
EDIT: Remember to rate my sig!
EDIT 2: It'd be funny if I had a Scott Shelby avatar, what with my rank and all.
