Konami have confirmed that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will act as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and it will be released in Spring 2014 across current and next generation systems.

Hideo Kojima explained its link to MGS 5: The Phantom Pain by stating: “The advanced capabilities of the FOX Engine have allowed me to tell the new story in a new way. 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 Zeroes 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 be releasing on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The boxed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will retail at £29.99, while the digital versions will retail for £19.99. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digital versions will retail for £29.99.

Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes will see Big Boss carrying out a rescue mission in a Cuban prison camp and will ultimately bridge into the events of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  This announcement should sort of confirm that fans should not expect The Phantom Pain until late 2015.

Update: North American prices announced. The boxed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will retail at $29.99, while the digital versions will retail for $19.99. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digital versions will retail for $29.99.

    So…. why does the PS4 and Xbox One version which is digital cost the same as the PS3 and Xbox 360′s physical release?

    Simply because Konami knows most people will buy the PS4/Xbox One version instead?

    I am pretty sure this is old news. Kojima I believe talked about this already.

    How is it that gaming websites get away with republishing old news? BTW your source isn’t linked. :)
