Ground Zeroes Release Date: The Prologue Set For Spring
It's interesting how Kojima and Co. are approaching the next MGS, isn't it?
Konami has announced that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to The Phantom Pain, will be available in spring 2014 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It'll be distributed in both digital and physical formats; the next-gen iterations will cost you $30, while the PS3 and 360 versions will only cost $20. Makes sense, right?
Kojima has said in the past that Ground Zeroes is designed to introduce long-time franchise fans to the new open-world theme. There are new gameplay elements as well, so it'll be nice to get our feet wet. The prologue also utilizes the much-hyped Fox Engine, which gives the game a day/night cycle and dynamic weather conditions. As for the story, Big Boss must infiltrate a Cuban prison camp on a rescue mission, and we'll enjoy "explosive plot lines." Well, that's not surprising.
The Phantom Pain will arrive later and pick up where Ground Zeroes leaves off. No word on when that will release but as I said...it's an interesting approach to offering one cohesive experience.
