Metal Gear set to go open-world with Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid movie confirmed
Hideo Kojima revealed a new title in the Metal Gear series, Ground Zeroes, during a Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event. We assume it made its glorious debut by flying out from a battered cardboard box.
It will be open-world and feature Big Boss rather than Solid Snake if the first promotional artwork is anything to go by.
It’s confirmed to be launching on current systems, hinting that it has been in development for a while and will most likely release next year, and even though it has become open-world the traditional stealth gameplay that MG fans love will still remain. Ground Zeroes will also be the first title to utilise Konami’s new engine, the KojimaPro’s Fox Engine.
Have a look at the first piece of artwork below:
Although the character may look like usual hero Solid Snake, you can spot the strap of the iconic eye-patch that Big Boss wears and the Militaires Sans Frontières – or Outer Heaven if you prefer – patch on his arm.
The demo which was shown has received a very well reception, making us wait with excitement to see it ourselves.
A Metal Gear Solid movie has also been confirmed with The Amazing Spider-Man producer Avi Arad on-board. With excitement, he said that,
”For many years I fought to bring comics to theaters. Comic books are now biggest genre in cinema. Video games are the comic books of today. We will take our time and tell the story with all the nuances, ideology, cautionary tales needed.”
With Arad at the helm and proving himself to staying true to sources and picking key talent, there is good reason to believe that the movie could actually be, dare we say it, good!
