Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is going to be a challenging title. Challenging enough that Konami have decided to include an option to lower the difficulty should you find yourself dying a bit too much for comfort. The catch? you’re literally going to be a chicken, as you can see from the screenshots released earlier by Konami via their Twitter.

The infamous Chicken Hat was revealed during a 3-hour video interview with Hideo Kojima.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain still doesn’t have an official release date, but rumor point at a mid-February release window. When it does hit the streets, it will do so on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
