E3 2014 was jam-packed with video game previews, as was expected, but one game not spotlighted much—at least not publicly—was Hideo Kojima‘s upcoming sequel Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. A new cinematic trailer for the game was released during E3, but the good stuff, the gameplay footage, was shown only behind closed doors.
Now, a week or so later, Kojima took part in a livestream in which the 30-minute gameplay demo shown at E3 was shared with the rest of the world. You can check it out below.
This week, streaming video will beat Blu-rays by 2015, Google boosts their maps while Apple‘s maps team sweats, Vodaphone admits its users are being snooped on, a chatbot has fooled humans for the first time ever, and all the latest from this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The game is set during World War I, mixing exploration, action, and puzzles in a 2D adventure. It’s inspired by letters written during the Great War, and you’ll relive historical battles playing as four different characters joined by a faithful canine companion.
You can watch the trailer for Valiant Hearts below.
Another upcoming game coming for the Wii U is a new title in The Legend of Zelda series arriving sometime in 2015.
While it’s not much, a brief preview of the new game was shown at Nintendo’s digital E3 2014 event. Basically the video gives you an idea of just how big the open-world map you’ll get to explore as Link will be. It’s not Skyrim or anything, but as far as Wii U games go it’s a natural progression Zelda fans have likely craved for a long time now.

Halo creator Bungie was of course in attendance at E3 2014 to share more of their ambitious ten-year, $500 million blockbuster hopeful Destiny.
If you’re excited about the game, or even if you’re still undecided on it, there’s a wealth of new footage to check out. Below you’ll find a gameplay experience preview, a new trailer, and an added bonus, a 30-minute look at the game being played to give you strong idea of what to expect if or when you play it yourself.
