2w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman made available a video today while talking to Hideo Kojima about Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes on PS4.
To quote: Set after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker but before those of the upcoming MGS5: The Phantom Pain, MGS5: Ground Zeroes gives the player total control over how, where, and when to execute espionage-focused operations.
Playing as Snake, aka Big Boss, players will sneak into enemy encampments, stalk targets, interrogate enemy agents, and recover secret intel while piecing together the game's story mission by mission. The result is an open, fluid adventure that will play out a little differently each time.
On PS4, Kojima's proprietary FOX Engine coats the game in a convincing layer of next-gen grit. Eerily lifelike character animations bring new punch to the game's CQC, while a new global lighting system means that day and night pass realistically, complete with changes to guard behavior and visibility.
Engine brings a host of other benefits, including an upgraded weapon physics system that accounts for bullet drop. This will be a profound change for fans of the tranquilizer gun and other low-powered projectile weapons, which now require far more finesse to use at extreme distances.
3w ago - Konami Social Media Manager Dalton Link announced today alongside some video footage that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is getting a PlayStation-exclusive Deja Vu Mission.
To quote: Metal Gear Solid and PlayStation are two brands that have been bound for greatness since the beginning. And isn't it fitting that, in the wake of the eighth Metal Gear game to grace PlayStation, we've decided to go back to the start, in a big, big way.
We're proud to announce that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be coming to PS3 and PS4 with the exclusive Deja Vu throwback mission! By setting up shots from scenes based on the events of the past, you'll be recreating the events of Shadow Moses as you take control of Naked Snake as he tackles Camp Omega in totally new, yet oddly familiar conditions.
From Genome Soldiers to Hind D helicopters and FOXDIE, you'll be seeing old faces and new twists that will have you shouting TIME PARADOX by the end.
Also, check out a lengthy demo of Ground Zeroes running on PS4, below!
