“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” will feature a smaller field when compared to “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” which should have areas that are “hundreds times bigger.” Furthermore the prologue won’t have the real-time day-night mechanic although players will be able to change the time zones when selecting missions. You can take a look at both games in action through the slideshow to the left of this article and Hideo Kojima’s messages below:

GZ is both a prologue of MGSV story & at the same time, a tutorial of new MGS which transits to sneaking simulator. W/ that said, GZ has comparatively small field as compare to main (which is hundreds times bigger) w/o time change. But each mission offers different time zone w/ different play.

Konami Digital Entertainment is planning to release “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” in several different ways on March 18. The publisher will be making the video game available through the Playstation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace along with a physical version. The disc copies also come with a few bonuses along with a higher price tag. Furthermore, the PS4 and Xbox One versions are going to be more expensive when compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 iterations.
