Metal Gear Solid V Daytime Gameplay
Konami released a 12-minute gameplay demo for their upcoming action-adventure stealth game, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
The gameplay video features English narration showing off various mission details and gameplay features of Ground Zeroes.
Speaking to Kotaku, creator, and director of Metal Gear series, Hideo Kojima explains, “Maybe you could think of a standard Hollywood movie where you have 15-20 minutes then the title, and then the main story starts.
So all of the events leading to [Phantom Pain] will be happening through the game. You can think of Ground Zeroes as this.”
He adds, “Ground Zeroes, as far as gameplay goes, will have the player get used to all these different elements, these different actions that we will have within this open world.
So people can get used to it… as far as Ground Zeroes goes, there’s one big mission that leads into the events of the main game, so you can see it somewhat as the tanker mission. This main mission in Ground Zeroes is what ties strongly to the main part of Phantom Pain.”
“Within that big mission of Ground Zeroes, you have several side elements, collecting specific items, doing something within a certain amount of time…
In the side-ops, you will find several elements scattered, and when you put them together, it will put together a story within the player’s mind of what is the next part of the game,” Kojima concluded.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will release for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in Spring 2014. The PS3 and Xbox 360 boxed versions will retail for £29.99, digital versions for £19.99; PS4 and Xbox One digital version will retail for £29.99.
