After all the confusion revolving around Metal Gear Solid V and it’s two different names, Konami’s intention have become clear today. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will act as a prologue to the eagerly awaited Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be released in Spring 2014 and will serve to introduce gamers to the new game play of the Metal Gear Solid franchise that are made possible by the strength of their new FOX engine. The creator of the franchise, Hideo Kojima, stated that: ““The advanced capabilities of the FOX Engine have allowed me to tell the new story in a new way. There will be a significant difference in what Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain brings to the series, so we want to ease players into the new open world environment and its potential. As such, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been designed to introduce key elements, allowing them to fully benefit from all that the new game will offer.”
The prologue will take us to a Cuban prison camp that will set up the plot of The Phantom Pain. The prologue will also showcase the large open environment and how elements like time of day and weather will have dynamic effect on the game and how it is played.
