In the aftermath of the events of "Ground Zeroes" and the destruction of Militaires Sans Frontières, Big Boss falls into a coma. Nine years later, he awakes and forms a new mercenary group, the Diamond Dogs. Now under the guise of the codename "Venom 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 Kazuhira "Kaz" Miller 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, and his mission quickly switches focus to ending this new threat.

There is a cutscene that is a callback for long time Metal Gear fans. Early in the game, you will randomly trigger a cutscene at Mother Base, where Ocelot gives a soldier specific shooting advice, telling him that flair and customization have no place on the battlefield. He also comments about his shooting technique, and how he jams his gun. This is a nod to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, where Naked Snake gives a similar speech to a young Ocelot, who was once like that. In Metal Gear Solid 3, Ocelot also shot his gun with a flashy style that ended up jamming the weapon, which ultimately led Naked Snake to giving him the tip to use a Revolver instead. See more
When obtaining a Russian translator, there are subtitles to translate the Soviet dialogue. However, there are inaccuracies. Namely, when a Soviet soldier yells "Suka!" the text reads "Damn!". "Suka" actually means "Bitch" while "Chyort" is what really means "Damn". See more
