Today’s Xbox Partner Preview brought us a new look at Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, the remake announced earlier this year. In the trailer, we get a first look at the game’s use of Unreal Engine 5 alongside some quick snippets of tactical espionage action.
While what’s shown is definitely gameplay, it doesn’t appear to be final as the trailer calls it the “first in-engine look.” Plus, the gameplay is watermarked with a “pre-alpha footage” tag.
Check out the Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater trailer for yourself below:
As you can see in the trailer above, we see Big Boss sneaking through jungles, over wooden bridges, through World War 2-esque trenches, and more. There’s nothing pointing toward the game’s story in this trailer but it does make one thing clear: this remake is going to be beautiful if today’s showing is any indication. And the gameplay looks solid and intact – exactly what you’d imagine a 2023 remake of this 2004 classic would look like.
Revealed back in May, coincidentally during a PlayStation Showcase, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is a from-the-ground-up remake of the third Metal Gear Solid game originally released in 2004. Like the original, this remake is a 1960s-era prequel to the Metal Gear series that tells the origin story of Big Boss. As such, it serves as a foundational narrative to the wider Metal Gear universe.
Here are a few screenshots from today’s showing:
