Konami and Kojima Productions have finally revealed the link between Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  Both will be part of the Metal Gear Solid canon with Ground Zeroes serving as a prologue and entry experience to ease players into the new gameplay mechanics of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  Oh, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is out Spring 2014.

“The advanced capabilities of the FOX Engine have allowed me to tell the new story in a new way,” Hideo Kojima explains.  “There will be a significant difference in what Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain brings to the series, so we want to ease players into the new open world environment and its potential. As such, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground has been designed to introduce key elements, allowing them to fully benefit from all that the new game will offer.”

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will consist of one mission where users infiltrate a Cuban prison camp on a rescue mission.  The story of Ground Zeroes will culminate at the beginning of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  Players will get to try out all of the new mechanics that will be in The Phantom Pain.  This includes an open-world that allows players to tackle missions any way they want.
