Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Info Explosion, Plus Latest Footage

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes made its first public appearance over the weekend, with plenty of details and footage of the game emerging via series creator Hideo Kojima.

First up, Kojima has asserted that Ground Zeroes and Project Ogre are entirely different projects, adding that he is “sick and tired” of being asked about the relationship between the two games.

"While I am happy to know people liked ‘MGS Ground Zeroes’, I'm sick & tired of people keep asking me like ‘is that project Ogre?’ here in Seattle everyday," tweeted Kojima. "Project Ogre is what the project that Ogre appears. Ogre does not appear in 'MGS Ground Zeroes' trailer."

Got that? Good. We’ll stop asking him then.

So what else do we now know? Well, we know that the game’s main character, Big Boss, can now get behind the wheel of vehicles. As made necessary by the open world nature of the game,  you can summon helicopters and drive Jeeps. That’s according to GameSpot.

Beyond that we now now that Ground Zeroes is targeting current generation hardware. According to the PS Blog, the PC used to present the Ground Zeroes demo is comparable to a PlayStation 3 in terms of power. 

Hideo Kojima also told the “One thing I want to make clear is that Ground Zeroes is something I’m making myself. I want to make it clear that Snake is outlet that he's taking a hands-on role in the development of the game. "Snake's back, but I’m also back," said Kojima. "I’m putting all my effort into that."

Kojima also added that he is making a different title for next-gen consoles.

Perhaps the most important revelation of the weekend, however, is footage. Quite a lot of it. All running in-engine and in real time. Check it out below.

My most anticipated game at the moment by far
10:39 has the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Logo so it's basically confirmed for Xbox

I now get annoyed that a game this stunning would be on current gen consoles, may as well say the video was fake because it will never look that good

Wait, so Snake is making the game? Huh? Maybe I'm too tired to figure out what this is supposed to mean right now or maybe it just makes no sense.

Eh not important. Just tell me when I can buy this game.

Battlefield 3 syndrome.Show it off on a "comparable" pc and water down the graphics when you get slapped with the real hardware limitations.Its alright though,because everyone will buy it and be too stupid to realize they arent playing the same game......a la battlefield 3 style!

@12 have you seen MGS4 on the ps3? this isn't that big of a jump from that, and that was 5 yrs ago. also, could be mistaken but I don't ever remember a MGS game on pc, ever.

@21 Achievements to me are WAY too messy, at least with Trophies you have a nice way of seeing how many Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum you have and a level alongside it, achievements are just a big mess of a number now =|

Also, when this comes out on 360 it will probably have the most discs a 360 game has ever had......ever.

@11 I'm with you, I have both, but this should have stayed on the PS3.

@21 You've obviously never played MGS: It's an actual story-driven-gameplay-on-the-side type of game, and it's LOOOOOOOOONG. You don't play it for achievements. EVER.

How can be a human such a badass genius? Kojima never disappointed me, i love this man so much. I respect and honour his work. This guy is too good to be just a human...he might be blessed from god. I absolutely love every Metal Gear Game, and this looks absolutly amazing. We shall be pleased again by the all-mighty Kojima. God bless you for your very hard work.

@19 - I hope so. Metal Gear Online is phenomenal.

It's a good job Peace Walker came to consoles because that would of left a lot of Metal Gear fans confused, questioning who Paz and Chico are.

Spoilers - I knew Paz survived, one of the biggest shocks I've had in gaming was when she revealed she was actually against us. I couldn't take it seriously though, damn me for making her wear a bikini throughout =P

@29 - I thought MGS5 was going back to Solid Snake? I could have sworn this was a sequel to Peace Walker, and in that a prequel to the original Metal Gear?

Small recap compliments of Joystiq - As far as we're able to tell, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker in 1974, mostly likely immediately after. The military base shown in the trailer, Camp Omega, is an American "black site" located on the southern tip of Cuba -- "A slice of American pie on Communist soil, and out of U.S. legal jurisdiction."

The small boy being held in the cage is Chico, a child soldier of the Sandinista National Liberation Front and eventual member of Big Boss' private military company Militaires Sans Frontières, who supplied intelligence during the events of Peace Walker. After the initial dialogue between Chico and The Disfigured Man -- our working name for the mysterious figure in the trailer -- the radio chatter we hear is a conversation between Naked Snake/Big Boss and another unknown member of Militaires Sans Frontières.

In short, this is a sequel to Peace Walker. But it might not answer everything, which could mean there might be a sequel. If it does answer everything however, the next game in the line would be Metal Gear. Please know that Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid are different games.

I am pretty sure that burned looking man is Zero. I am not sure 100% who he is in terms of his role but he made an appearance as an old man that looks similar at the end of MGS4 and it would explain the name Ground Zeros. Or it could be a very badly burned revolver ocelot (the hat pretty much makes me think that too).

Oh and here is 14 mins of this but it goes on to show much more gameplay (jeep, sneaking, helicopter etc). Not huge amounts but enough to make you go YAY! :-D

@35 - I love it :D It's like Kojima has made the perfect game for stealth fans, I thought it would lean more to the action side but it doesn't at all. I am so excited! Time to play through every Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid game again =P

I can't wait to make Calling to the Night play as my helicopter comes down to lift me up, ITS SO COOL :DDDD

It's using the Fox Engine, which is designed around next-gen tech. Looks super.

We hopefully all aware that this trailer not uses the Fox Engine but is just a CGI generated trailer, as is mostly used in intro,s and cutscenes in most games ;) Just saying otherwise i,m realy happy to see another MGS and in an open world setting its even better. The Fox Engine sure delivers i,m sure of it, i,m still not sure if this going to be released on current gen consoles or already for next gen. Either way i def will be buying it :)

Yeah, this is 'old news', but I'm really excited about this game and happy that it's coming to the 360 as well. Splinter Cell just isn't what it used to be. Ubisoft screwed up, glad that we have an alternative.

@43 - That wouldn't make any sense though, not if MGS5 is based around Solid Snake. The next game in the timeline would be Metal Gear, the original Metal Gear. Kojima said he wanted Solid Snake to die at the end of MGS4 but he isn't finished with the character yet, that means MGS5 is set after 4. This isn't a prequel to MGS5. MGS5 might be the next Metal Gear Solid game after this (ignoring Rising) but that isn't what prequel means.
