Metal Gear Solid 5 “Hundreds” Of Times Larger Than Ground Zeroes.

Posted: January 3, 2014 in News

Hideo Kojima has stated that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the official full 5th entry in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, will be hundreds of times larger than Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, the prologue set for release this year.

Ground Zeroes is a prologue to The Phantom Pain that will bring users up to speed on the franchise who may not have been previously aware of it, and will also serve as a way to introduce users old and new to the new mechanics and open world environment of Metal Gear Solid V.

Kojima said on Twitter (translated by Siliconera) that: “GZ is both a prologue to the MGSV story and, at the same time, a tutorial for a new MGS, which transitions to sneaking simulator.

With that said, GZ has a relatively small field as compared to the main game (which is hundreds of times larger) without time zones changing in real-time. However, each mission offers different time zones with different playstyles.

Konami has confirmed a release date for Ground Zeroes of March 18th this year.

The Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of the game will feature an exclusive mission called Jamais Vu, which will feature Raiden (of Platinum hair and Metal Gear Solid 2 infamy) taking out “bioroid snatchers” hiding within a prison facility.

The PS4 and PS3 versions of the game will feature a different exclusive mission entitled Deja Vu, which features the classic (and blocky) Solid Snake from the original PS1 game.

The prologue will be available at retail for Xbox 360 and PS3 for £29.99 / €29.99 and digitally for £19.99 / €19.99 while the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be only available digitally for £29.99 / €29.99.
