In the main story set in 1984, Snake finally awakens from his coma and forms a new mercenary group, the Diamond Dogs. Now assuming the codename "Punished Snake", he ventures into Afghanistan during the Soviet war to track down the men responsible for MSF's destruction. Along the way, he becomes reacquainted with his former rival Ocelot and encounters a unit of warriors robbed of their past, present and future. While he and Kaz are initially driven to exact revenge, Snake soon unearths a plot by the Cipher organization to develop a weapon with the potential to surpass even the Metal Gear system. Written by
