Kojima Productions: Ground Zeroes is a game in itself, will have several hours of gameplay

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, will give players a good amount of gameplay, according to Kojima Productions. On their latest podcast, staff members of the title talked about the amount of content and length for their next game.

“Ground Zeroes is an integral part of the Metal Gear Solid V experience.” Eyestone (hosting the show) explained.

According to the staff, Ground Zeroes serves as a prologue that lets you get used to the new style of gameplay and the controls, it sets up the story and introduces you to the overal world.

Jorge Mendoza emphasized that Ground Zeroes is a game in itself: “It’s not just one mission.” Sean Eyestone added that it will feature ‘several hours of gameplay’.

“It’s a different product.” Eyestone explained. “The same stuff that’s in Ground Zeroes will not be in The Phantom Pain. You should definitely play it and get yourself ready for The Phantom Pain.”

A bit later on the podcast, the topic came up again, and the staff made some more comments about it.

“It’s not just one mission.” Eyestone assured once again. “There are several missions in Ground Zeroes, and we’ve shown a few of them so far.” However, he did not want to say how many missions there are going to be exactly.

“Rest assured that there’s a good amount of gameplay within the Ground Zeroes package, and it’s not something that you’ll get though in just a couple of hours. So you’ll be playing for a long time.” Eyestone continued. “If you want to really explore everything, there are a lot of side missions, side objectives, and if you want to do all that, then that of course multiplies the gameplay as well. So there’s a lot to do, bottom line.”

Metal Gear Solid V: Grond Zeroes will be released next spring for 30 dollars/euros.

  • Anders

    That sounds like 5 hours.

  • Fredy Carius

    I hope you can play most of the missions with 2 or more players. at least the side missions. This would greatly increase the durability/replay value

    • anticky64

      You may not know what MGS is… there’s no co-op and no side missions in previous games.

      • Nyxus

        Peace Walker has both of those.

        • William of Orange

          Did you just burned him without even noticing it? Damn, you’re cold.

          • Nyxus

            I was just pointing it out. No bad intentions. 😛

          • William of Orange

            ….

      • Fredy Carius

        Man you should play Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
        Not just because Ground Zeroes’ history is right after PW’s but the game’s structure looks similar (main missions and side missions and such)

  • Janeo

    Was that ever doubted I mean Kojima has never been one to rip anyone off

    • ObsessedGeorge

      That’s what I thought too.

      • Janeo

        Yeah people are just afraid they are getting ripped off because sites have said ground zeroes is one mission for $30 here in Australia it’s $50 and I don’t care I know I will spend a whole lot of hours finished every mission then replaying the game multiple times until the phantom pain comes

        • ObsessedGeorge

          Just as Peace Walker! Why is it more expensive there dude?

          • Janeo

            That’s just how games are here most games are around $80 and $60 for you guys right. I don’t know why that is I thought our dollars were pretty much the same.

          • ObsessedGeorge

            No man, we have euros in Greece, so I’m in much deeper s*** than you guys! 🙂 That’s why Zavvi.com exists. Cheaper online buys. 😉

          • William of Orange

            How much euro’s does a average game cost in Greece, then? A average game (xbox 360/PS3/PS4) costs around €60 in Holland. Wii U is around €70 ( for no apparent reason).
            And yes, I’m aware of the financial situation in Greece.

          • Nyxus

            Wii U games for 70? Where do you buy them?

          • William of Orange

            Lol, my little brother bought JD 4 for €70 at Bart Smit. It’s not like there are interesting games for the console at the moment (aside from pikmin 3, but I’m not interested in it). Is DE HR in stores right now?

          • Nyxus

            I think so. But I haven’t bought one game for 70 euro for it, except for the collector’s edition of TWW that came with a statue. I paid 35 for Pikmin 3 and 25 for Rayman Legends.

          • William of Orange

            Price drop, I guess? With the ps4 coming up, it’s probably a
            smart thing to do.(unless you bought a used copy of pikmin 3 and rayman legends at gamemania,of course)

          • Nyxus

            No, they were all new. I do check around for good deals, mainly in online stores.

          • William of Orange

            Hm… Not a bad idea. But ever since I was a kid, I always had to ride my bycicle to get a copy. it became a ritual, more or less.

          • Nyxus

            Do you know this site: http://www.budgetgaming.nl?

          • William of Orange

            No, but it’s usefull! Thanks!
            (I’ll do my name some honour and use the site to save money)

          • ObsessedGeorge

            All games that are new for PS3 are 59/69 euros. If the game is PS3 exlusive and it’s a AAA game, then it’s a guaranteeded 69 euros.

          • William of Orange

            So it’s about €10 cheaper in Holland. Man, that sucks.
            Especially if those game shops makes you pay more for a AAA title.

        • JHuang

          People normally think that one mission as in lets save this person or lets finish the target would count as one mission but didnt think theres many part to it
