And so it was at the beginning of the 21st Century...
The nuclear weapons disposal facility on Shadow Moses Island in Alaska's Fox Archipelago is attacked and captured by Next Generation Special Forces led by members of FOXHOUND.
The terrorists have got their hands on hundreds of nuclear warheads and they're demanding that the government turn over the remains of Big Boss. They warn that if their demands are not met within 24 hours, they'll launch a nuclear weapon.
Take on the role of retired Special Forces veteran Solid Snake as he is called back into duty in a top-secret mission to deal with the greatest terrorist threat the world has ever seen.
Your mission is to infiltrate the base, rescue the hostages and kill the terrorists carrying nothing but a pair of binoculars, a pack of smokes and a bad attitude. The clock is ticking. Once again, Snake heads into battle...alone.
