Metal Gear Solid’s Snake is Altair from Assassin’s Creed!?

Breaking news! It has just been revealed that the big secret from Assassin’s Creed wasn’t just the whole time-bending thing. It turns out that Altair is really Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series! Okay, so obviously this is one really elaborate April Fools joke. It looks like Ubisoft and Konami collaborated to bring us the coolest five-minute gaming video ever. Either that or some game enthusiast out there went to an insane amount of time and effort to mod a game that hasn’t even been released yet. Still, Altair fighting Metal Gears with an Assault rifle? So…awesome. And oddly this gets me even more excited about MGS4.

You gotta appreciate when two developers come together to give the gaming community a little treat on special occasions. How awesome would it be if it ends up being an easter egg in MGS4?

That is just gameplay from MGS4… and you get the costume when you beat it.
