PAX 2012: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is Coming to PS3

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by Director, SIEA Social Media

UPDATE: Text smoothed, gameplay video added above

At PAX 2012, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima showed off 15 11 minutes of gameplay footage from his upcoming PS3 game Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. The demo began with an in-engine cinematic set in a rain-drenched prison camp. The sprawling camp showed off FOX Engine’s advanced shader, lighting, and particle effects. Mud glistened and rain danced amidst the pervasive, bone-chilling gloom. As the cinema continued, we met a mysterious man with a mutilated face and wide-brimmed hat who later led troops away from the base, kicking the footage into a gameplay demo as Naked Snake (Big Boss) moved into position.

The prison camp – a huge open-world environment riddled with entry points – pointed to an evolution of MGS3 and MGS4’s sandboxes. As Snake made his way closer, Kojima pointed out nearby APCs and helicopters and confirmed that Snake could commandeer and pilot them if the player desired. As if to prove the point, Snake then hopped into a Jeep to gain access to the base, evading a roaming tank in the process. Snake then deployed a flare to deploy a friendly helicopter, something Kojima said that players could do “at any time.” The helicopter will enable you to fly between missions and even to other countries. Kojima also even mentioned that the player will be able to customize the music played by the helicopter, which in the demo blared out Ride of the Valkyries.

“We’re not going to say that it’s Metal Gear Solid 5,” Kojima said after the demo, “but it is a prologue.” Kojima explained that the demo video was a recording of gameplay rendered on PC hardware that was similarly equipped to a PS3, and that the final game should closely resemble the video.

Kojima also mentioned that he is personally overseeing the creation of Ground Zeroes. Watch the video demo at the top of this post to see Ground Zeroes in action.

Can’t wait! Also, the fanboys will be pretty angry when this isn’t going to be a PS3 exclusive.

Wooooooooooooooo!!!!

Metal Gear is by far the greatest series of all time. Thank You Kojima!

Hope this is console exclusive or at least have some exclusive content, regardless I cant wait!

    It is multiplatform, just to set the record straight. Would be great to see some exclusive content, but I don’t reckon we’ll know anything for a loooong time on that.

I’m a metal gear fan since the debut on the ps and am really looking forward to this.
Is it going to be a playstation exclusive or multi console?

Do you know if it’s PS3-only, Sid?

Will be skipping. MGS4 was too disappointing for me. I don’t think I’d play another MGS game anymore. I would play a new Ac!d though, but that has more to do with my love of card based and turn based gameplay…

should have snagged this to be exclusive but whatever as long as we still get to play this. Just don’t let the other guys snag exclusive dlc or timed.

an open world Metal Gear Solid made by Hideo Kojima!!!!! O.o OMFG, best news of the year, seriously!

wow…
I love MGS and all (snake is probably my fav char ever) but the series need a rest.
I would like to see kojima working on semething else. MGS4 and PW were awesome but a ZOE 3 would have been better than a new MGS (for now). I dont want to see MGS turned into assassins creed.

@ 7 (Buffpotato)
Please understand that you are in the extreme minority. MGS4 is widely considered the most technically advanced game to date .. and it was released 6 years ago. Additionally, it’s considered as one of the greatest games of all time.

Just thought I would point that out to you. .. to keep things in perspective.

    I’m a huge MGS4 fan — it might even be my favorite in the series. But different strokes for different folks and all.

So much for all FOX Engine games being on Vita. Another lie from Kojima. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

Will it make full use of a Blu-Ray disk like that of MGS4?

DiegoFunhouse said:

September 1st, 2:37 pm

I’m a huge fan of MGS games but how long will we have to wait for this one???
It’s been more than 3 years since they announced “Rising” and it hasn’t even been released and now there’s a another new game in development.
This is kind of annoying.

In mgs4 otacon said to switch to another disc but remember it was ps3. I wonder if they will be a difference if they use that again for this game. Will it say on the xbox version its time to switch to the next disc because you don’t have a ps3? lol I can’t wait to see the video.

Dantes_Ragnarok said:

September 1st, 2:44 pm

@21
dont forget that Rising was cancelled.
Then Platinum games decided to give it a second chance (feb 2013 is its release date)
MGS PW was released in 2010 and the HD version came after a year.
wee seriously need a rest xD

D-Squad3 said:

September 1st, 2:44 pm

Also on the 360? BOO

Berae said:

September 1st, 2:44 pm

xKakashi209x said:

September 1st, 2:48 pm

Can’t wait to see this, man I’m such a Metal Gear fan that my friends call me the walking Metal Gear encyclopedia.

GMFCO311 said:

September 1st, 2:52 pm

So Gameinformer.com got their info wrong then? Because they are saying this is just a PS3 exclusive, not Multi-platform????

deltakong said:

September 1st, 2:55 pm

It would be a travesty for a metal gear solid game to launch on the xbox. if that is the case I definitely will not buy it, simply because it is the clearest indicator of a technically inferior game. I pray that @ least MGS5 will stay sony exclusive

Yes… YES!

TILLEMANS said:

#34 agreed if they build it on ps3 it will look much better but if made on xbox it would not look as good.

I AM SO EXCITED LOVE MGS SERIES LOVE MY PLAYSTATION 3 , come on sony you should bought kojima productions a long time ago!!!

inFAMOUS-787 said:

September 1st, 2:59 pm

Anyone else bothered that its multiplatform…….?

ALARM-cIock said:

September 1st, 2:59 pm

May I request you add the gameplay demonstration to the PS store also?

GMFCO311 said:

September 1st, 2:59 pm

Well if this is Multi-plat, it sounds like the PS3 and PC are the lead platforms anyways! Lets hope this wont turn into a Skyrim debacle! lol

gerneric123 said:

September 1st, 3:00 pm

“you should bought kojima productions a long time ago”

That would require buying Konami, a huge multinational company that works in a variety of industries that Sony has no interest in. Why would they drop potentially billions on that?

TILLEMANS said:

September 1st, 3:00 pm

Xbox peoole see how awasome MGS5. And say hey i want to play mgs4,1 week later he bought a ps3 and his xbox is collecting dust in gamestop. O.o

nolson said:

September 1st, 3:01 pm

lol @34 for not buying it simply because its also on xbox…we all know you’re still going to get it dude. Stop being ridiculous

TILLEMANS said:

September 1st, 3:02 pm

The trailer should be out!

JDilinger said:

September 1st, 3:05 pm

Ennio Morricone!!!!!!!!!!!! Great choice

September 1st, 3:07 pm

I’m really psyched for this! Could we also get MGS Portable Ops on Vita, so we can experience the full story of Big Boss?

I’m so excited for this right now! :D

BRING IT ON!
