Coming out of retirement, super-soldier Solid Snake is called back into the line of duty to take on rogue members of FOXHOUND, threatening to launch nuclear-weapons on the White House unless they receive their $1 billion ransom. With only 24-houts to sabotage FOXHOUND's threat, Snake must infiltrate enemy lines, hide from them when necessary and he'll face many challenges along the way: the demons of his past will challenge him and his will as a soldier shall be tested, as Snake fights to save the world from nuclear devastation.
