Big Boss steals a sheep... with a balloon... in the full Metal Gear Solid V E3 demo

Hideo Kojima has released the entire Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain demo for all to see, which was previously only available behind closed doors at E3 last week. You'll meet Revolver Ocelot, see how horses and other animals play a major role in the new sandbox, gawp at the dynamic weather, see Snake headhunt soldiers (and sheep!) by attaching them to helium balloons, upgrade Mother Base and get confirmation that other players will be able to invade your HQ in multiplayer.

Oh, and there's also some stealth. Quite a lot of it actually.

The incredibly lengthy introduction is entirely in Japanese, but the gameplay demonstration is in English and kicks off at 50:15. Watch it all below.

In case you missed it, here's the official E3 trailer, which we personally think is glum, disappointing and excruciatingly boring compared to the fun and quirky gameplay on show. Less grinding 'horrors of war,' more balloon sheep please!

The Phantom Pain releases next year, promising the biggest shake-up to the series core mechanics in any game to date (which you can sample in Ground Zeroes). Who's excited?
