Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 editions of its stunning new title Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeros will boast a Sony platform exclusive mission that celebrates the series’ heritage across the PlayStation range. While not entirely contained within the PlayStation ecosystem, the MGS series has been a corner stone of Sony hardware for years.
Series creator Hideo Kojima has celebrated the heritage of the acclaimed MGS franchise across numerous Sony gaming systems, by creating a bespoke mission for the newest addition to the PlayStation family. Users will be able to access a unique ‘MGS1 Deja-Vu’ mission that references key events from the original PSOne classic, Metal Gear Solid. The exclusive mission tasks the user with reproducing famous scenes from the original game. As players recreate the iconic moments, a flashback system reproduces the original graphical style of the original PSOne game – complete with greatly reduced ‘vintage’ polygon count – and introduces familiar enemies and weather conditions for added authenticity.
The mission will be available to both digital and boxed users, and will ultimately let players assume the appearance of the classic ‘Solid Snake’ within the Ground Zeroes universe once proper conditions are met.
Ground Zeroes is scheduled to be released in Spring 2014, and acts as a prequel to events in MGS V: The Phantom Pain. The game introduces a new open-world environment to the series, along with time of day, a variety of weather conditions, extensive AI advances, and a gripping new storyline that will both stun and amaze. Ground Zeroes will be available in retail stores nationwide on current generation systems for £29.99 or via download for £19.99. Digital versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can be downloaded for £29.99.
