The Metal Gear series hasn’t been known for having exactly a coherent storyline. Much like the military espionage it tries to emulate and expand upon, some fans have fallen behind in terms of knowing exactly what is going on, like who The Patriots are, what The Boss did to Naked Snake, and so on.
Now, game developer and Metal Gear superfan Alex Camilleri, has released the Metal Gear Timeline, a website he’s been working on for the past few months. The goal of the website is to intelligently put all of the events from the series into chronological order. (Editor’s Note: There are SPOILERS amok in the timeline. Browse with caution)
According to Camilleri, he got the idea from Reddit user AudioRejectz, who made an attempt to organize all of the major events from the series into a similar fashion. Camilleri saw this, and decided to expand upon it by providing a full timeline of events, while making it easier to browse and read (although it needs some proofreading).
This is a great resource to get those fans both new and old caught up prior to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain‘s release, which launches across PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 1st.
