First in-game MGS4 footage

On Eurogamer TV now.

The first in-game footage of Meta Gear Solid 4 PS3 is now showing on Eurogamer TV.

It gives us a glimpse of the ageing hero stealthily making his way around a Middle-Eastern province, using his new "sneaky suit" to blend into walls, disguise himself as a statue and scare the bejesus out of opposing soldiers.

Game creator Hideo Kojima demonstrated the game in front of a Tokyo audience during a celebration of Metal Gear's 20th anniversary, having promised to do so at E3 a couple of weeks ago.

He also unveiled Metal Gear Online, a multiplayer PS3 offering inspired by the success of MGS3: Subsistence on PS2. Up to 16 of you will be able to sneak around and jump out on each other, linking up with each other's futuristic nanomachines to build a digital picture of the battlefield and enemies within it.

A closed-beta of it is expected to begin on 20th August, where 3000 people will get good look at the action - although it isn't clear if this is for Japanese PS3 owners only.

Head over to our Metal Gear Online gallery for the first screenshots, and don't forget that MGS4 trailer on Eurogamer TV.

Alternatively head over to the Kojima Productions website for a look at some MGS4 in-game screenshots.
