During PAX today, Hideo Kojima said that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, the amazing open-world Metal Gear title that will grace our consoles next year, is actually a prequel to Metal Gear Solid 5.
He also revealed some interesting details: Big Boss is back, as the main character, and he will use a helicopter to travel around the world and take missions. The villain is also a suited guy, that sports a flat-brimmed hat, and his face is burned and disfigured. He also calls his mercenaries “an army without nation”, whose organization’s name is XOF – both being a play on FOX, Big Boss’ unit. The game was also showcased on the FOX Engine for about 15 minutes. We will try to ge the footage here the soonest possible.
