Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes releases Spring 2014

Konami have announced that Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will be released in spring 2014. Ground Zeroes will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3. It will serve as a prologue to The Phantom Pain and will introduce new gameplay ideas to the series.

Hideo Kojima, the Series Head, said: “The advanced capabilities of the FOX Engine have allowed me to tell the new story in a new way. There will be a significant difference in what The Phantom Pain brings to the series, so we want to ease players into the new open world environment and its potential. As such, Ground Zeroes has been designed to introduce key elements, allowing them to fully benefit from all that the new game will offer.”

The boxed edition of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will retail at £29.99, with digital current-gen versions costing £19.99 and next-gen digital versions retailing at £29.99 on Xbox One and PS4. However Konami haven’t confirmed any boxed versions for the next-generation of consoles.
