'Metal Gear Solid 3' Is Being Remade In 'Metal Gear Solid 5'

Since Konami appears to have rather forgotten about the Metal Gear Solid franchise, a superfan has decided to take matters into his own hands. Reddit user 'BeesWX is currently remaking the criminally overlooked Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater using Metal Gear Solid V's FOX engine... and they're looking for help.

Earlier this week BeesWX showed off their impressive creation: a mod within Metal Gear Solid V that recreates part of the Metal Gear Solid 3 map. Right now there isn't much more to go on beyond two screenshots, and BeesWX stresses that it's a work in progress with a long way to go. That doesn't mean it isn't already impressive, of course, and a few fellow fans have already expressed an interest in getting involved to help move it along.

BeesWX wrote that the mod "still in its baby steps, but progress is going fast." They added that when they have something a little more substantial to show off, they'll put together a trailer showcasing their efforts.

For now, there's a Discord server where you can follow along with the mod's creation. BeesWX is also open to researchers jumping aboard the project and helping out by combing through the Metal Gear Solid V game files. Given that the last proper Metal Gear Solid game was 2015's Metal Gear Solid V, I would imagine it won't be too long before this fan project builds up a proper head of steam and more fans get involved. The people want a new MGS, dammit, and we have no idea what plans Konami has for the franchise.

Rumours earlier this year suggested that a remake of the original Metal Gear Solid could be coming to PlayStation 5 from the developers of the Demon's Souls remake, but nothing is concrete on that front just yet.
