Send in your questions about Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

We have been invited by Konami to check out Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes at the BAFTA Inside Games event, a week before the official release. It will take place March 12th at the Tobacco Dock in London, and will be the first time the game is playable to the public.


We will be able to go hands on with the game, so if you have any questions that you would like to have answered, you can ask them here (in the comment section or on Twitter). You can expect an article on the event at the end of the week.

  • James

    What i really want to know is how will custom soundtracks for the walkman work on ps4, since ps4 can’t read audio CDs.

    • Solid Snakes Revenge

      Me too thanks for asking that question also. I need my sea breeze!!! Also congrats Nyxus that’s awesome.

      • James

        I would love to listen to way to fall. actually the entire MGS3 soundtracks are just amazing 😀

        • Solid Snakes Revenge

          Yeah that’s been my plan since I heard about the walkman. There were some good ones from mgs4 as well like backyard blues.

  • The[]doR

    My congrats, Nyxus!

  • flying_fox

    Great! Enjoy it!

    I’d like to know your impressions on that PS4 “atmospheric simulation”. Is it as good as it looks, does it change the game substantially, is it something randomly generated, etc. 🙂

  • crimsonfox

    Woo, You go Nyxus!
    Glad to hear this site is being recognized by Konami. Hopefully you get some exclusive gifts too! Ask Kojima what the hell is going on with the movie? I’m interested… Also if he has made any progress on getting a studio to make remake Metal Gear Solid on the Fox Engine? Also why is he so sexy?

    • Nyxus

      Thanks! But as Zven pointed out, I’m not going to interview Kojima, just play the game. 😉

      • Janeo

        Well I’m glad to get hear you get to play you deserve it, you put a lot of work into this amazing site and I can’t wait, will you be doing a review or just writing your impressions without scoring it. Either way I can’t wait for the article, by the way could you tell me if the audio tapes are just about Paz being tortured and skull face doing what he does or will we get to hear tapes with big boss and kaz talking about whatever.

  • Golgari

    Congratulations Nyxus! You have the best Metal Gear news site. It’s a fact bro. 😀
    Thank you for your hard work. :*

  • Zven

    I don’t think he’ll be talking to Kojima crimsonfox, it’s a public event to play the game not an interview or anything 🙂

    I’d like to know how big the difference is between PS3 and PS4 and if it’s big enough to buy the game twice. I’m getting a PS4 in october but of course I can’t wait that long so I’ll play it on PS3 now and maybe later buy it again for PS4.


    • James

      I purchased it on PS4 and 360 😀 i cant wait

    • Nyxus

      Correct, I will be able to play the game but not interview Kojima or anything, questions to Kojima can be asked to Geoff Keighley on Twitter, he will be interviewing him this week.

      And I plan to compare the different versions that are available there.

      • crimsonfox

        I’m sorry I was confused by the “Send in your questions about Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” headline. Haha oh well either way! Enjoy the game, I have a friend on PSN who has it and has said only good things. Hope you enjoy the event!

        Also, so does this mean I won’t ever find out why he so sexy?

        • Zven

          do you know if the game has a Platinum trophy?

          • TheF1BOB

            It doesn’t. Gotta say, the PS3 version looks great.

            The face models and lighting = WOW!

          • Zven

            thanks TheF1BOB 🙂

          • glitchbomb

            Where did you learn about the no Plat?

          • glitchbomb

            I have seen the Xbox achievement list and the corresponding point score for each achievement. Although that does not guarantee a platinum trophy, I have read that “.. the game does have 1,000 Gamerscore, meaning that you should probably expect a Platinum Trophy.”

          • Zven

            I hope so, I haven’t checked the achievements to avoid spoilers so I had no idea.

            It’s coming out in a week now, we should find out very very soon

    • Markos

      I’ve played it last night. Difference in graphics is noticeable, it doesn’t look as good as the pc demo, and of course it looks worse than ps4. I think it tries to be too much, I mean, mgs4 has less effects but it looks sharper and more stable fps wise. It’s still great for old gen but ps4 ver is no doubt the best looking by far.

  • lostsnak182

    Like everyone above has already said, congrats Nyxus.

    I would very much like to know was there any particular reason as to why Big boss has very little to say in ground zeroes (from what i have heard) is it because of the new motion capture that they rely on his face to express emotion more or is it that Kiefer was too expensive for just a prologue ?

    • Nyxus

      Kojima did say earlier he wanted through convey more through facial expressions rather than words, so I think that’s the reason.

  • Batzi

    Man you are so lucky! I am very happy for you! Make us Metal Gear fans proud!

    I have a question that has been lingering in my mind for some time now and no one has ever asked it to Kojima. I am not one of those who played GZ early so I don’t know if it was answered in the game or not but the question is as follows:

    Do we learn the significance of the mirroring concept that was first introduced back in PAX? What is the significance of flipping horizontally all the letters? for instance: ᖷOX instead of FOX

    • TheF1BOB

      LOL I thought you would be a certainty to get early. :/

      Not long to go though. 😀

  • César H. Sandoval

    1. Will Kojipro release DLC packs for Ground Zeroes (Skins, extra missions, extra maps, etc) to keep the fans busy until Phantom Pain releases?

    2. Will we see more Konami games aside from PES and MGS using the Fox Engine soon?

    3. What Konami game franchise would you (Hideo Kojima/Kojima Productions) want to direct or reboot if Konami gave you the chance?

    4. Will you include Ground Zeroes into the whole MGSV: Phantom Pain package for those who decide to wait until the full game is out?

    5. When can we expect a Metal Gear Rising 2?

    Also, if you guys may, please tell him to bring back boxes, wall knocking, lockers, and other “silly” but 100% MGS things back for TPP, we are missing them as fans.

    • Nekkedsnake


  • ywsbek

    When can we expect to see or hear about MGO3?

  • Cartmangus

    woah, being recognized by by Kojima Productions and invited to play? Congrats, man, that’s huge!

  • Nekkedsnake

    excellent, so jealous! wish i were going too! so my questions are:

    1. is knocking really gone?
    2. how do we cycle through weapons/items? thru d-pad?
    3. is hiding behind cover automatic or is there a contextual prompt?
    4. is the control scheme similar to MGS4? (aiming, CQC, crawling, rolling, etc)
    5. can mother base still be controlled without a secondary device?
    6. are rations still around?
    7. how does the CODEC work? in background like PW?

    I guess those are my need-to-know questions for now 😀

    • Schmojima

      finally someone who got that nyxus will ›only‹ play the game, NOT interview kojima, jeez! x3
      I second your questions and I’m especially interested in the control scheme: how to trigger FPV for example or if there’s a shooting-from-behind-cover-mechanic (the real one, like in GTA 5)

      Also: How do those vehicles behave? THAT would be really good to know…

      • Nekkedsnake

        If Nyxus DID get a chance to one-on-one w Kojima I’d ask a whole host of questions like:

        1. Why do you keep denying that PO exists?! Hahaha

        2. Will you remake MG and MG2:SS on the Fox engine???

        • Schmojima


          Kojima should do a metalgearinformer-only interview, JUST for us…like a skype session with, i dunno, like fifty overly eager fans bombarding him with questions like this… n__n

          and yes, definitely, MG and MG2:SS should get a remake some day. i guess fox engine would just be THE perfect tool for just that; or some dlc of some sort after TPP is released would be awesome – I have to admit that i never really played or rather enjoyed them, I think this old MSX to PS3 thingy is unplayable and really frustrating, never worked for me…

          on a side note: if kojima really wents full circle with TPP, I guess I can die in peace

          • Nekkedsnake

            ooo, an MGI-ONLY interview…sick! if Kojima ever did any actual remakes my brain would explode. i know id be pretty grateful. shit, even if MG/MG2:SS were specifically remade for the Vita id be happy. i dont have a vita yet cuz waiting for an epic sale, but i already own the HD Collection for it.

            also, i read an article before about Kojima wanting to make a game about THE BOSS and her Cobra unit. count me in!

    • Markos

      1. yes
      2. yes + right stick
      3. you can’t stick to a wall if you ask that
      4. yes
      5. don’t know
      6. no, as far as I know
      7. yes

      • Nekkedsnake

        Thanks for the reply! Sucks that knocking seems to be gone. Used that tactic immensely in every MGS game. Also, its weird how you don’t stick to walls for cover apparently. So I guess we will just stand or crouch near objects/walls. Like not even a button to hold to press against wall?

        • Markos

          Nope, I’ve tried to stick to a wall and watch but nothing happened. I didn’t spend too much time with the game, but I know I tried to peep and I couldn’t.

        • Janeo

          I thought I have seen you are able to press triangle or Y to stick to walls in demos of the game and I thought the guys that said wall knocking wasn’t in later said they made a mistake

    • glitchbomb

      I believe most of the answers to those questions are already available online.

      • Nekkedsnake

        true. itll be even better for Nyxus to confirm for us all, and Markos seems to have already had a taste of it!

  • TheF1BOB

    Congratz man, not surprising since you do a wonderful job of gathering anything Metal Gear related.

    My question is will we see a substance version of both GZ and TPP somewhere down the road, like a directors cut etc…?


    Congrats Nyxus, my question is more like a most of the fans questions; Will Mr Kojima makes another game that ties to MG1 or The Phantom Pain will do that?!!

  • Schmojima

    Congrats, that is just awesome!!

  • Mark

    Congratulations! I know you’re going to love it! Don’t really have nay questions, just excited to play the game next week!

  • Major Zero

    No thank you, i have no more questions about Ground Zeroes but what about the phantom pain release date and MGO 3 Mr. Kojima?

  • Major Zero

    And congratulations Nyxus you deserved it 🙂 Good Job

  • Ian Reay

    I’ve kept asking this and still haven’t gotten any replies from MGS or Konami, or Koji-Pro.

    Will you be able to import your own music to Snake’s Walkman on the PS4 like you can on the PS3 version?

  • Sting’s Dad

    I’m more than ready to just sit back and be pleasantly surprised by both GZ and TPP.
    The one question I’d have though, is “Will there be an ‘old’ Big Boss skin in TPP (as he appears in MGS4)?”

    If so, that’d be epic beyond belief.

  • Kraid

    Hey Nyxus, thank you for all the work you are putting into the site, please keep up your efforts, we appreciate it alot!


    Please ask Hideo Kojima. Since Metal Gear Rising was so well received on PC. Can we expect to see Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain on PC in the future????

  • Pete

    Are there a set number of ways to accomplish a task? ie. getting into a base
    Or are the number of way to accomplish a task limited to the gamers imagination?

  • EimajOzear

    I would like to know the significance of light in the game; are you spotted easier/faster in the daytime, and do shadows cast by objects/buildings affect the speed of the enemies’ perception?

  • Golgari

    Nyx I would like to know how Stealth mechanics with searchlights affect the gameplay and how it actually works.
    and please. This is important. Test the AI in this game. It is interesting to see how AI is smart in this game and what it can see or hear. Try to see if they can hear you when you open a door faster and etc.

    • J0Scorpionake

      I’m very curious on that too, on one trailer I saw that the enemy didn’t notice Big Boss’s shadow in front of him… I hope that was not the final built :

  • Cobra Commander

    I would like to know why in MGSV they decided to use fictional weapons instead of the usual 100% accurate weapons code that every other Metal Game adhered to.
    While the weapons such as AK’s anf FAL’s look close, they are not real life models.
    For instance Ocelot’s trademark Colt Single Action Army looks more like a Double Action Smith & Wesson. A Single Action shooter would never go for such a design, and it just goes against all of things Revolver Ocelot is legendary for. Since MGS1 Ocelot has declared his love for Colt SAA pistols.
    What gives?

    • WhatsInTheBox

      Is this true?
      Is there any way you could show us some evidence maybe.

      Real late reply though, oops.

  • XIFF-5

    New artwork 😀

  • Mr. Tibbs

    Congrats on the invite. This is the best Metal Gear site by far and my favorite fan site of any game actually. Have fun for us! Also, does anybody know if playing GZ on 360 will be able to transfer to PP on PS4?

  • anon

    1. Why did kojima change the health system from the original (health bar and consuming food like rations) to what it is now a knockoff of Red dead redemption and Resident evil 6?

    2.Why did he remove the solton radar system and will it ever make a return?

    3.Will you be able to carry more weapons in TPP? In GZ you have a limit on how many weapons you can carry at once, why restrict players like this?

    4.Can you give us the option to remove the burnt film screen effect that shows when you’re shot in TPP? Why was this effect added it doesn’t suit MGS at all?

    5.Will more weapons and items from Peace Walker be included in TPP? Like the EM Net and EMW Gun or the Rail Gun?

    6. Will the Bandana and Stealth Device (turns you invisible) be in TPP?

  • CrazyGuy207

    When can we expect a full version of “Sins of the Father”?

    • glitchbomb

      I think he just means questions about anything he can answer from just playing the game. He won’t be able to ask Kojima anything. But you can direct questions like that over twitter to

      Maybe Nyx will re word the headline because it seems to be confusing most people?

  • Vapour Snake

    Will you cut another arm in the phantom pain?

  • TomRL

    Wow, well done. I can’t imagine this place will stay behind the likes of Snakesoup for long.

  • Ricardo Oe

    But i and one milion players just want know :MGO will be reissued when ???

    After or Before Phanton Pain ???

  • as

    wow,gratz Nyxus.heres my question

    is possible MGS V coming PC so i can download it via Steam?

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Wow! I’m so proud of you bro! Your site has my soul! I’ve been here for about a year and l simply love MGI! After the update, MGI has been looking better than ever. Thank you for all your hard work Nyx, because l know what you sacrifice to inform us about MGS.

    My only question is about the sky in the PS4’s daytime missions. How does it work? Please define “dynamic sky”.

  • Big_Boss

    Congrats Nyxus! I’ve never seen a better site for Metal Gear News!

  • Mark

    Will the North America version include a Japanese langue option?

  • dhmon

    Can everyone tell me next update for gz will have online ?

  • Gray Fox

    1 – Will we see Gray Fox?
    2 – Is Quiet Naomi’s mother?

  • Hamil

    Will there be a midnight launch at GAME where we can meet Hideous Kojima and get our games signed in the UK

    • Hamil

      Fuck my phone auto corrected his name!

      • WhatsInTheBox


    • glitchbomb

      My god….of all the times I have read his name, I have never once thought about the school yard gem that is “Hideous Kojima”!

  • kenny armour

    will the main theme be returning for ground zeroes or the phantom pain

  • Everardo Guzman

    Is there a soundtrack release for Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes?
    Is there any chance that a new Silent Hill game may use the Fox Engine?

  • Anonymous X

    Just ONE thing. Will there be DUAL AUDIO.

    Also congratulations NYXUS for growing this big man.

  • Ilja Y.

    So excited to finally play this game.
