Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes announced

FOX Engine-based open-world Metal Gear Solid.

Kojima Productions announced Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, the next entry in the stealth action series, during the franchise’s 25th anniversary event in Tokyo today.

A demo shown to attendees began with a real-time cut-scene and transitioned into gameplay set in an open world, with night and weather effects (raining) in place. Snake was shown crawling around, avoiding search lights, killing a guard, driving a jeep, and calling a helicopter for evacuation. Find detailed impressions at GameSpot.

Story bits teased in the dialogue include: “Troops who cannot return to their country,” “Path,” and “Mother Base.”

The demo was shown running on a PC at specs equivalent to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game targets current generation consoles and is being built on the FOX Engine. However, specific platforms were not announced. Attendees were reportedly amazed, astonished, and pleased.

A teaser site for the game reads: “From Fox, two phantoms were born.”

Thanks, @MarkMacD, @Kazamatsuri, @iceblockwill, and Famitsu.
