We’re delighted to announce that both Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and PES 2015 will be making their Moscow debuts this month as we’ll be using Igomir – Russia’s largest consumer computer and video gaming event – to showcase the titles.

Since its inception in 2006, Igromir has become the key date in the Russian gaming calendar. The Moscow-based event runs from October 2nd-5th and will be attended by over 150,000 guests. It is held across four halls and will play host to all major global publishers and the October event will also play host to the world-renowned Comicon event for the first time. As such, it is fitting that KONAMI and its local partner, SoftClub, will use a dedicated area to showcase both titles.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be represented by a themed display that recreates a military installation as seen in the game. Within this is a 50-seater cinema area where visitors will be greeted by a specially-filmed presentation that features stunning footage from the game, showing updated content and a new location. KONAMI is also planning a series of Igromir-specific announcements regarding the series, which are certain to delight local fans of the series.

Igromir will represent a fantastic opportunity for visitors to get up to date with the huge advances in both METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2015. KONAMI can be found on Booth G2, Hall 3, and will be running a number of fun activities and competitions throughout the four-day show.

OP misspelled the event in the title. It's "Igromir" not "Igomir".

Will anyone from Moscow-GAF be there, or will Konami livestrem most important parts?

I wonder how many big Western companies are going over? I've been hearing lots of devs raving about how Russian localisation was a big success.

I wonder if by new location they mean more of Africa, or an entirely new location. Either way, great news!

Whoa, that came out of nowhere. Hyped. They're obviously not going to reveal a release date yet the hope will linger on within me regardless.

I do not think I'll go this year. Maybe on Sunday
Is this event like E3 or Gamescom? i've never heard anything of Igromir, i mean it's obviously not as big but is it similiar to those events?

Expect nothing and you won't be disappointed.

If there was something big happening, Kojima would've hyped it up on Twitter.

Big like MGS Collection 2014?

:(
For better or worse, a MGS clothing line is a pretty big deal and will sell like hotcakes. Just because people expected some bizarre port collection for PC or whatever doesn't mean the MGS Collection announcement was garbage.

i think there's going to be some news, but probably nothing huge after the tgs blow-out. i don't think we're seeing much new gameplay... but then again maybe they could do what they did with gamescom and play the tgs mission differently

Betting it'll be the same shit as TGS. After they couldn't even get Kiefer's line about a new trailer right, I'm more than a little weary.

It'd be cool to see some more PC stuff, since I think Russia probably has one of the bigger PC gaming markets? I might be wrong, though.

Don't think there's much reason to get hyped with such short notice. The "new location" line is interesting, but they could cheat their way around that.

Unrelated, but does anyone have the facial comparison of Big Boss' character models over the years? Specifically, I'm more interested in seeing a MGS4, GZ, TPP comparison.
