Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain delivering a one-two punch for gamers.
Konami Digital Entertainment will launch Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes in Spring 2014 as a prologue to the events leading into Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. This prologue brings all of the hallmarks of the renowned franchise in a concentrated story mode that guides players into the new gameplay mechanics against the backdrop of the expansive Metal Gear Solid universe.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes features new advances made possible by Kojima Productions' FOX Engine, such as radical new game design, day and night cycles, and weather conditions that will all dynamically affect gameplay. The missions are designed to ease players into the new control and gameplay advances that will be an integral part of MGS V.
The Ground Zeroes storyline follows the series' hero, Big Boss, as he infiltrates a remote Cuban prison camp on a rescue mission, all while trying to remain undetected. Explosive plot lines develop quickly as he finds himself on behind enemy lines with little options for help.
