Today, Konami sneakily let slip new details regarding Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. These deets are sure to get gamers of all ages excited in the pants, so let us delve into specifics!
First off, players who purchase Ground Zeroes will get exclusive DLC for use in The Phantom Pain. This DLC gives gamers special resources for a Mother Base area that will be featured in The Phantom Pain. The added staff for the base will give players extra firepower to take on enemies in their Phantom Pain adventure, and make them happy they bought MGS V in two parts instead of one. Be warned that this DLC will be limited to the first batch of physical copies of Ground Zeroes and for a limited time on the digital release, so buy/pre-order it quick!
In addition to that creamy goodness, Ground Zeroes players will carry over any character skins, prisoners of war, and VIPs they rescue into the Mother Base in The Phantom Pain. The more people Big Boss has armed, the better!
For fans of connecting their phones or tablets to their consoles, Ground Zeroes will feature a second-screen iDROID app, which replicates Big Boss’ in-game communication/map device. This app can be procured via iOS, Android, and Xbox Smart Glass systems for $0, and users can call up maps, summon air support, or play any of the cassette tapes found throughout Camp Omega for their pleasure and delight.
Lastly, Konami has lowered the price on all console versions of Ground Zeroes , presumably because people didn’t want to pay almost full price for a 2 hour experience. The PS4 and Xbox One will see both the physical and digital versions of the title go on sale for $29.99 upon release, while the 360 and PS3 versions will be $29.99 physical and $19.99 digital. Hooray for vocal expressions of frustration and disappointment!
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will release nationwide and online March 18th. I’m happy that the price went down on Ground Zeroes, though I could care less for phone/tablet compatibility. What do you readers think about all of this new info?
