Metal Gear Solid fans have reason to be excited today, as Konami took the wraps off Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes, the newest title in the award-winning Metal Gear franchise. The game was announced at Konami's 25th anniversary Metal Gear Solid event in Japan to much fanfare. However, while details are now available about the title, no gameplay videos and only a few images offer a glimpse of Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes.
Konami Productions unveiled the game with a real-time demo, where Big Boss (the main protagonist) is crawling around to evade searchlights. He then manages to quickly kill an enemy while in stealth mode. After that, Big Boss calls in a helicopter for evacuation. In the demo, the game is running on a current gen gaming PC, and the graphics and gameplay appear to have excited those who were in attendance.
Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes is running on Kojima Productions FOX Engine, an engine that has been developed for current gen and next gen in mind. Videos displaying what FOX Engine is capable of should put to rest any fears gamers might have regarding the appearance of Metal Gear: Ground Zero.
The setting of the game seems to be in the United States, as an American flag could be seen in one of the screenshots, either before or after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Reports claim that the game will be open world.
At the moment, fans looking to find any form of gameplay material on the Internet will be out of luck, but the first gameplay footage of the game will likely be leaked online before long, so keep an eye out.
