Martin Schneider has hinted that some improvements have been made in regards to two upcoming video games , "Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain" and "PES 2015." According to a report by Video Gamer on July 29, the Fox Engine powering both projects have been enhanced. As a result, both titles should look better than the previous showcases.

Fans won't have to wait long to see the improvements either as Konami Digital Entertainment confirmed that "Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain" and "PES 2015" will be a part of the upcoming GamesCom 2014 convention. For the latest "Metal Gear Solid" title, attendees are going to get an eyes-on look at the ambition and scale being put into the project. They will also be able to get their hands on a playable demo of the latest installment from the "Pro Evolution Soccer" series on the show floor. The event begin on Aug. 13 at Cologne, Germany, and is expected to last five days.

The general manager went on to state that the "Metal Gear Solid" and "Pro Evolution Soccer" are two of Konami Digital Entertainment's strongest brand. The publisher has been on a decline over the past several years in terms of new console releases and is increasingly relying on the success of its two biggest franchise for profit. Martin Schneider reassured fans that his company is putting a lot of "commitment and energy" towards both projects.

"PES 2015" is set to arrive sometime later this year for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It is the first game in the soccer franchise to be developed for the two next-generation consoles, which launched last year. The "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" release date window has not yet been officially announced by Konami Digital Entertainment although many fans expect to play it sometime next year.
