Konami have spoiled us today morning with some gorgeous new screenshots for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
The first part in the Metal Gear Solid V title, Ground Zeroes is released later this month for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 both physically and digitally. It has also been revealed that those who pre-order will receive exclusive content, including Mother Base Staff for use with the second part, The Phantom Pain’s Mother Base. The Mother Base is introduced during the events of Ground Zeroes but plays a central role in the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
DLC codes will be provided via a printed insert within physical copies of the game. Digital versions will access the pre-order DLC automatically when they start The Phantom Pain. Players will then have access to the Mother Base items giving players a distinct advantage in The Phantom Pain.
Further links between the two titles have also been revealed. Ground Zeroes sets up characters and content that will be further explored within The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes also acts as an introduction to many of the game-changing elements that the latest MGS offers, including open-world environments, changing weather and the passing the of time, and hugely improved AI throughout.
Those who rescue characters/POWs within Ground Zeroes will be available within The Phantom Pain. Similarly, players will be able to use their save game from GZ to help establish a Mother Base in The Phantom Pain, while actions made when rescuing hostages, POWs, and specific characters will all have important repercussions later on.
All versions of the game will also benefit from an accompanying iDROID App. Accessible via iOS, Android, and Smart Glass systems, the iDROID service acts as a second game screen and syncs with the main action. It can be used to show a map of the world and summon air support, while any cassettes found in the game can also be played via the App, and it will also show your global ranking in terms of mission success. It also gives the ability to build the Mother Base, which was first mentioned in Peace Walker. It is a central hub that allowed users to develop new armaments and store items for future use. Players will be able to sync it with Ground Zeroes and work on their Mother Base while on the road or listen to music and intel contained on cassette tapes found in the main game.
