Currently, the editor of GameSpot, Peter Brown, is posting some information on Twitter and encouraging people to ask about this mission.
"Now I'm in the Afghanistan desert looking for a secret weapon in caves. I can only talk about this mission today. Needless to say, Afghanistan, in the game, is much higher than Ground Zeroes. When I think I'm getting tired of the environment desert, I find a new hiding place that animates things. "
"So far, I rescued people with Fulton, supplies, and ... a giant bear. The bear was very challenging! It cost 10 tranquilizer darts. In addition to Soviet troops, I also found mysterious super soldiers in this mission. These 'skulls' They are very fast, and are clearly biomechanical in nature. "
"The day and night cycle is great, and is a big part of the strategy. The Phantom Cigar is strange! The mission to find the weapon takes you by massive military installations hidden in the desert. The size of them is scary."
"Although I can only talk about this mission today, I will have a lot of coverage ready to reveal on 9 June. Any questions about this mission? Bring it! I can tweet about it until 10 AM on Pacific Time."
"On this mission, Episode 6 (" Where the bees sleep? "), I am in the 4% set on 7 hours of gameplay. Take it or leave it."
After fans made their questions, Peter Brown answered some through his Twitter:

Joe McCallister, the Examiner, was tweeting too.
"I can confirm that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is an extensive game, beautiful, and seriously deep, almost there is plenty to do, but ... it's not oppressive I could be attacked by a bear, recruit a size PMC. decent, and give punch in almost everything. "
"I also dropped a crate on my horse and me, and it deserves a trophy."
"Now I was given the task of eliminating three unit commanders in a meeting, the question is how quiet I can be until I find out how loud I can be."
"You know those games that you drop and then immediately want to play again I had that feeling with MGSV:. TPP, for sure"

David Roberts, of the Games Radar:
"Well, I'm playing Metal Gear Solid V for about eight hours now."
"Obviously, I can not talk about it much now. But it's like the Peace Walker expanded into immense proportions of open-world."
"I'm in mission 8 now, and I need to find a Colonel and his follow-tank squad. But for that, I need to find information."
"Also, I need to find more soldiers to 'recruit' using the Fulton Recovery System in order to search for a new rocket launcher."
"When I do this, those tanks will be exploded. Or, if I were better in that game, could always use the C4."
Matthew Kato, Game Informer:
"I put my faithful horse with his uniform battle and we are stomping Afghans. Blood Covered!"
"In the middle of the mission trying to locate the Honey Bee gun. I stopped to give cable a Soviet relay station. We'll find some information!"
"Wow, I was lucky. A spontaneous sandstorm gave cover for my entrance. The Soviets did not even notice."
"It did not last very ... resorted to using their anti-aircraft guns against them. Oh yeah."
"The cover of the night is the perfect way to distance myself from this disaster!"
"I escaped narrowly from an enemy helicopter while on horseback. That would have been bad."
"I heard the howl of a dog, but I can not find it! I would love to return it to the Mother Base."
