More E3 2014 details have been confirmed for "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on June 6, Hideo Kojima has spent 300 hours editing a 30-minute long gameplay demo for the upcoming title. However, the demonstration may be limited to a showing behind closed doors.

However, the company is also preparing a new trailer for the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Hideo Kojima previously hinted that the video is about men who are becoming crazy, adding that the infamous GDC 2013 trailer will look pale in comparison to what may be shown in the "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" E3 2014 trailer. He went on to admit that some viewers may have some difficulty watching a few of the scenes from the five minute promotional video.

The trailer may appear in Microsoft Studios' or Sony Computer Entertainment's press conferences next week. Hideo Kojima does have a history of showing up in both competing console manufacturers' events. For example, the E3 2013 trailer for the upcoming title was first shown off during the Xbox media briefing.

When "Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes" was released earlier this year, Konami Digital Entertainment decided to offer exclusive missions for both Playstation and Xbox versions. However, the contents were eventually made available as a free DLC pack for all versions. You can find a screen from one of the missions of the prologue with the photo near the top side of this article (courtesy of Konami Digital Entertainment's Facebook page).

It is unknown if the publisher may follow a similar promotional strategy with "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain." Along with the new videos, the release date may also be announced at E3 2014. The PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game currently has no launch window although an analyst reported that it won't be coming out until late 2014 at the earliest.
