Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes – the prologue for the full MGS V: The Phantom Pain – releases this week on both next-gen consoles and past-gen ones. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the title as it is only a taster of sorts, but as you can see from our full review of the game, it is still very much worth your time and money.
To mark the launch, Konami have released a new trailer, packed with both cinematic clips and gameplay footage. In it we get to some some of the new features in the game, such as the open world environment, dynamic weather effects and the improved enemy AI. The title is out today in North America, and hits stores in the UK and Europe on Friday – at the budget price of £29.99 for both physical and digital copies on PS4 and Xbox One, and £29.99 for the physical PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360 editions or £19.99 for digital downloads.
This may be the most expensive demo you have ever played, but it still looks set to be snapped up by many eager Metal Gear Solid fans, who don’t want to wait until The Phantom Pain is released.
If I'm not playing on a good Adventure Game - still longing for the long-past Golden Age of the genre, when Lucasarts and Sierra ruled supreme - you might find me searching for a local arcade, in the hopes that it still houses titles such as Sunset Riders or WindJammers.
