I take a holiday break for a few days, and the gaming world explodes with huge game announcements. So, bear with me this week as I catch up on a few stories that are probably old news to most of you out there.
Obviously the big, BIG news from PAX weekend was Hideo Kojima’s unveil of the next Metal Gear Solid. No, this isn’t considered Metal Gear Solid 5, nor does it have anything to do with Metal Gear Rising.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, built on the stunningly impressive FOX Engine, is set to be another “prologue” chapter in the series, featuring an evolved open-world design, elements of vehicular exploration and the ability to do things like call in support from friendly helicopters at any time.
Check out the 11-minute in-engine unveil trailer below. Supposedly the demo footage was recorded from PC, but the game is in development to run on PS3 and Xbox 360 at performance “close” to this target. To me the engine looks more advanced than what the current consoles are capable of, but if any one can pull this off, it’s Hideo Kojima.
