The New 'Buddy System' Changes The Way Stealth Works in Metal Gear Solid V

Take the shot
Kojima Productions has shown off a new system that looks to change Metal Gear Solid's stealth action gameplay. Aptly named the Buddy System, Snake can now take in a unique ally for support during certain missions. Though only the sniper Quiet has been shown off, creator Hideo Kojima has hinted at the possibility of other supporters.

While Snake is on a mission, he can issue commands to whomever has tagged along with him. These commands range from Attack and Escape to Cooperative Assault and Scout Ahead. All commands are issued real time and can drastically change the tides in combat, especially when the numbers are not in your favor. Despite what the name leads one to believe, this is an in game system, meaning there is no local co op option. Still, the ability to bring skilled warriors along not only helps Snake out during missions, but also allows the player to see why these characters are so awesome without those incredibly long cutscenes.
