The Penny Arcade Expo (more commonly referred to as PAX) is a series of gaming festivals held in the US in Seattle and Boston. Started in 2004, the event has steadily grown and has now become a showcasing ground for some of the best games in the world of video games.
At PAX 2012 too we have seen some big reveals. Some of the interesting reveals and highlights of the event are as follows:
1. Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes
In late June, Hideo Kojima confirmer Metal Gear Solid 5 (read our story here) and at PAX 2012, we saw a glimpse of the game in action. There is a 10-minute trailer that reveals a grand cinematic setting and a scale that we have seen in MGS4. The trailer takes place in a military base in the middle of the night under the influence of heavy rain. Enjoy the trailer below. There is no word yet on the release date of the game or the console it will make an appearance on. The game was shown running on a PC and on hardware configuration similar to the current console generation.
