Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes 

 

 

335379_191810980952450_219993653_o.jpg

 

Developed by Kojima Productions and produced by Konami It will be the ninth entry in the Metal Gear series, and will be the first to have an open world gameplay structure. Director Hideo Kojima confirmed that Big Boss will return as the game's protagonist in a story that will serve as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid 5.

There aren't a lot of details available at the moment but some of the feedback from the event mentions that the action took place in an open environment and Snake was driving a truck at some point because that's the stealthy thing to do these days. I haven't seen enough information yet to decide how I feel about this, though I'm anticipating this more than Rising.

 

Also, where was Metal Gear Online 3?!?! :catsad:

Apparently its hugely open world, and people were left shocked and stunned by the graphics and performance of the game. It's probably multi-platform though. So not sure if the game will suffer due to this.

@SurrealNightmare - Im with you, just relaying what i heard, its more than likely BS. I dont think it will be out untill next gen though, remember how long hideo took on MGS4? He is a mental OCD perfectionist, not a bad thing though.

There was no mention about it being only on PC, it was just that the demo that they showed was on a very high end PC. Most likely, it could be a launch title for next gen, who knows?

I quite excited tbh. I believe they can't really mess it up, so here's hoping I'm right.
Also, hopefully Afro Akiba will be able to make a return :(

Well if it is for next gen consols which I think it is gonna be. If there ever was a game that Sony needs to secure as an Exclusive title for the PS4 then its this title right here because quite frankly I doubt I'll be getting a PS4 but if MGS was exclusive then I'd have no choice.

Just in case anyone missed it :catvery-happy:

 

"According to GameSpot, the 20-minute demo for the open-world stealth title kicked off with a chap in a business suit being escorted to a military installation by an armed patrol unit. As rain pummels the base, the man has a chinwag with a young boy trapped in a cage, and tosses him a music player.

The child turns it on and the track ‘Here’s To You’ from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots plays. For those who need their memories refreshed, it’s the track that plays during the credits of Solid Snake’s swansong, as seen here.

On with the demo, and the man removes his hat to reveal burns and scars across his features. He then wipes an emblem off the side of his chopper which displays the letters XOF (or FOX backwards), discards a heap of XOF emblems and then departs.

“From FOX, two phantoms were born” then appears on screen, which refers to either Zero and Big Boss or Liquid and Solid Snake. Big Boss shows up next wearing visors, which he flips up to reveal his eye patch and trademark mullet.

Attendees were then shown some gameplay, which saw Big Boss navigating his surroundings in full-on stealth mode. It was also confirmed that our grizzly hero can call on a chopper for assistance and control a jeep, with shooting ostensibly taking place from a third-person perspective."

I read some of the Gamespot comments but I was obviously too stupid to notice that the XOF is meant to represent FOX in reverse.

Maybe that's why the image at the top inverted. I hope that doesn't mean that we have to fight Shadow Snake though... heh.

Don't really know where all the next-gen talk came from...

I've only read about it on Andriasang, but they quoted Famitsu in saying "Ground Zeroes targets current generation specifications, with the demo running on a PC at the level of PS3 and Xbox 360. Famitsu reports that Kojima Productions is also working on next generation development."

Ah, so I guess this is what all that "open world" talk from a while back was for.

Interesting stuff... Would like to see it. =)

Just give me something like 'Just Cause 2 meets Peacewalker', with a more grounded character, literally... no hook+chute... and make it so the bases dotted around, have real patrols. Give it weather with pros and cons, day and night with pros and cons, co op and a good story ...And I'll buy it.

I think we will be meeting a young Solid Snake in this game, Kojima just posted a photo of the second artwork image and called it "FOX Snake". The artwork also says "SNAKE" under it, so this is not Big Boss, as he fully embraces the Big Boss name after PW.

The dude did look way too young to be Big Boss anyway.

This should be awesome.

Sounds good, lol, getting excited about MGS again and we haven't even seen anything.

Not much to go on, and different reports from different people. I think it makes more sense to be a next-gen game, I can't imagine a game running on existing consoles that would shock and surprise people, the hardware is getting pretty damn old now. But we'll see, also I don't see it being exclusive, I don't think Sony can afford to invest right now, it will sell well on PS formats regardless and it doesn't make sense for Konami to just stay PS.

"Kojima did state that he wishes to add a new spin to the stealth genre; even when you're discovered, you can use all the means and tools to escape rather than see a "game over" screen."
Doesn't that apply to all mgs games?

Yeah it was the one thing that made me hate Splinter Cell compared to MGS, you had to clean up your own mess when you got spotted, not just do it all again.
