Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, will launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on March 18th 2014 in North America, and on March 20th in Europe and Japan.In the US the game will be $20 on last-gen and $30 on Xbox One and PS4, no word yet as what European prices will be.
Konami says the prologue is designed to help players understand the game's new control and gameplay mechanics. It features a day/night cycle, dynamic weather conditions that change gameplay and more.
In Ground Zeroes you'll play as Big Boss as he infiltrates a Cuban prison camp on a rescue mission.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will come later but Konami has yet to announce a release date. Hideo Kojima has said recently that the game will not be finished for some time due its enormous volume.
