Hideo Kojima has revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes at an event marking the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series.
Running on current-gen PC, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is an open-world stealth game, a first for the series.
The event was on strict lock-down, with attendees forbidden to tweet about it. However, some reactions slipped out to the real-time Fox Engine powered demo.
"Well other people are talking about it so... next Metal Gear shown, and it looks F***ing HOT," said one user.
According to reports, the demo began with a cut-scene which moved seamlessly into gameplay. "Snake crawled, avoiding searchlights, killed guard, rode jeep, called in helicopter for evac," said another. "Sounds like Metal Gear, but the scale & atmosphere... Wow."
Famitsu writes that the demo ended with the player being airlifted to safety in a helicopter playing Ride of the Valkyries, in a clear nod to Apocalypse Now.
Following the demo, two images have leaked out. You can find them below.
No platforms or official details have yet been released. Expect an official announcement soon.
On stage at the event, Kojima also announced a Metal Gear Solid film. It will be produced by Marvel producer Avi Arad for Columbia Pictures.
