MGSV Ground Zeroes street date broken, beware of spoilers

Some stores in the United Arab Emirates have broken the street date for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, selling the game for all platforms (except the PlayStation 4).


Needless to say the fans who don’t live in this region should watch out for spoilers. The supposedly controversial and shocking ending of the game can already be found on some websites.

To be clear: this website will not be posting the ending or any other spoilers from the game, and it’s not allowed to do so in the comment section either.

    Good guy Nyxus =)

  • Major Zero

    Good to see that they not sell the ps4 version yet since you can share it via the share button on ps4. Anyway thnaks for Warning Nyx 😉

    • Hellrasinbrasin

      Oh some PS4 editions of MGSVGZ were sold but do to a contractual agreement between SONY and studios the publisher decides what content is or is not allowed on streaming services and since its not the 18th or 20th of March yet as it relates to the UAE where the street date was broken the ending is blocked on streaming sites which I find to be hilarious.

  • Golgari

    Thank you Nyx for this warning.
    This week will be tough because Kotaku and other folks all over the internet will post endings and stuff… This is why I hate the internet.

    • glitchbomb

      When did Kotaku themselves spoil the ending?

  • Solid Haze

    I don’t mind spoilers, can you tell me where i can find the real leaked ending???

    • Nyxus

      Not sure (it’s on 4chan I think) but you should be able to find it if you google it.

    • Leonardo Esteban Montes

      It is now on youtube. I would send a link but it would be a pain in the ass for the people who don’t want to be spoiled. It ruined the game for me. Knowing the ending without seeing the game in stores…

  • Danny (Soundwave)

    Thanks for the warning dude, I don’t want any spoilers.

  • Jimmy

    Spoilers? looool it’s not a full fledge game just a prolugue *tzz* MGS fans so nostalgic nowadays it’s funny

    • Nyxus

      What does that have to do with it? The game has a very shocking and impressive ending, as we heard from journalists who played it, and people here just don’t want to get that spoiled.

      • Jimmy

        Ok i respect that. I only thought it’s just a prologue and we know the ending already ( Boss falls into a 9 year coma and mother base gets destroyed and this leads to the phantom pain)

        • Nyxus

          There is still stuff we don’t know, based on what has been reported.

          • Janeo

            I have endings of games ruined for me before my friend ruined infamous 2 for me but I didn’t find that to be a huge deal, mgs however is a whole other story I wanna be surprised when I see what happens so hopefully if people do post endings somewhere they out a big spoiler alert next to it

        • Nekkedsnake

          SPOILER TAGS JIMMY!! just kidding, haha. tho i dont want spoilers, all the trailers pretty much gave us too many clues as it is. its not the destination but the journey!

  • JimmyPage

    does somebody know when we can pre order GroundZeroes on the PSN Store?

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    I’m not concerned about the ending of the Prologue being spoiled. I mean based off of The Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain Trailers enough information is there for you to start guessing what the event is that lands an international bulls eye on Big Boss’s back without further bread crumbs coming from people who got the game early. But yeah entering blackout mode until the 18th.

  • PrinceHeir

    Yikes, Oh well I may have to actually buy the game now just to avoid spoilers.

    MGS4 was freaking crazy back then where everyone keep posting spoilers on the forums, especially gametrailers.

    • Nyxus

      You visit GT?

      • PrinceHeir

        Yeah and that’s how i saw you there! I’m mostly a lurker back then, didn’t have an account, but i always see you posting MGS news.

        Shame they ruined the front page and you can no longer see the new topics being posted on the right.

        That’s how i found this site metalgearsolidnl

        I remember your avatar was Gene(my favorite) and Peace Walker Snake(the one with the comic style cutscene)

        So yeah sorry for stalking you XD

        • Nyxus

          I remember the Gene avatar. 😛

          • PrinceHeir


            Actually now that i see your avatar now, this is the Peace Walker Snake I’m talking about!

            You should go back using Gene again if you can ^^

            He’s one of my favorite Villains in the series and definitely on par with Liquid Snake or even The Boss in some cases.

          • Machine Gun Kid

            Same here, Gene definitly one of my favorite villains altho portable ops dosent really tie into the main metal gear solid saga, but kojima did say that certain elements of portable ops does tie into the story as a whole, so i dont kno lol

          • Cartmangus

            I remember that thing, how many years did you have that again? lol

          • Nyxus

            Several years I guess. I rarely change avatars.

  • MrVux007

    so i guess no internet for me in next couple of days….

  • Machine Gun Kid

    50% of me wants to kno how gz ends right now. The other 50% wants to wait to find out until i beat gz. Which makes me 100% conflicted lol

  • SenorCardgage

    I already found someone streaming the PS4 version on Twitch and they seem to be the only person there streaming it (aside from people doing fake-outs by streaming the trailers). I stopped watching after they found a certain character, but oh man Ground Zeroes looks fantastic! Also watch out for the chats in other streams, looks like people are going in them and spoiling GZ for others.

    • Golgari

      It’s not a PS4 version. It’s probably PS3 on Twitch.
      I’m watching right now some idiot that don’t know how to play. Gameplay is amazing. Brilliant… Jesus man. I can’t wait. I can’t f*cking wait for it.

  • Hellrasinbrasin

    People wanting spoilers as it relates to the ending are just gonna have to wait until walkthroughs crop up that weekend before the 18th of March…As everyone expecting to see a full walkthrough on other streaming venues where the street release was broken are quite annoyed right now.

  • glitchbomb

    Thanks for protecting the site from GZ spoilers Nyx! I am curious about something though.
    Is there as statute of limitations on spoilers for you?
    I am assuming some people will want to talk about the ending here at some point in the near future. Stuff like speculating on how the ending of GZ is going to effect the Phantom Pain, etc.

    • Nyxus

      Yeah, good question. What do you think would be a reasonable timeframe?

      • Golgari

        I think after one week of the official European release. I think most people understand here that spoilers are bad especially for something amazing like Ground Zeroes.
        It’s not like MG Informer is some casual mainstream gaming site where you cover not only MGS but other games.

        I just watched one Spec Ops mission and Paz rescue and right now I want to SPOIL so much but I can’t… lol xD bu-ut now I know for sure that MGSV:GZ is some serious and complex stealth game.

        • Hellrasinbrasin

          …I know. Right now their a special threads being set up only for spoiler discussion for Ground Zeroes for people that got it early due to the street date being broken or have watched the twitch streams. And that’s fair as it keeps any and all potential spoilers contained within that thread from leaking into non spoiler threads for MGSV GZ. I will say this though that Metal Gear Solid V is the perfect hybrid of concepts from Deus EX Human Revolution , GTAV, and AC.

      • glitchbomb

        I agree with Golgari. Consideringe that you have people from all over the place visiting your digital outer heaven, coupled with how on long it would take to get to the GZ ending, a week after EU release should be perfect?

  • Fraaancis

    Good to know that spoilers is not allowed here =)

    • Nyxus

      I just hope people will cooperate, I have no control over what they post in the comment section, of course. 😛

      • glitchbomb

        Wait…are you serious? You have zero(hah)control over the comment section? o.O

        • Nyxus

          No, I can remove comments, but that’s after the fact. People can still have posted spoilers and other can have read them before I get to it.

          • glitchbomb

            Wait a god damned minute here…
            Are you trying to tell me Mods dont have the power to travel back in time in an effort to erase content from users minds?!

          • Nyxus

            I’ve changed the settings so that a comment will disappear after it has been flagged by someone. So users can remove spoilers as well.

  • o1striker

    Well looks like I’m going to close off all talk(forums, etc) of MGSGZ until next Tuesday, besides coming to this site of course.

  • glitchbomb

    It might make some people breath a little easier knowing TWITCH is banning people who stream GZ before the 18th. Also, it seems Konami is proving to be quite diligent and most video hosting sites are being pressured to take down the content.

    Besides, all of us here already know Skull Face is really Soliquidus Bosscelot.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Alright guys so this is how ground zeroes ends, first ah! just kidding. No but seriously i do kno how it ends and believe me theres ah shocker in there no one seen comeing
