Konami explains why Ground Zeroes is worth buying and drops price
Posted on February 25, 2014 by Oscar Gonzalez

There’s a growing kerfuffle regarding MGS V:  Ground Zeroes. With the news that the game will only be two hours long, gamers are questioning its worth. Konami wants to reassure gamers that the game is worth it.

First off, players who buy MGS V:  Ground Zeroes will receive exclusive DLC for the “full” MGS V game, The Phantom Pain. The DLC is limited to the first batch of retail copies and for a period of time for digital copies. Included in the DLC is additional resource for a Mother Base area in The Phantom Pain that will give players an advantage when playing the game.

Some content from Ground Zeroes can be carried over to The Phantom Pain. This include prisoners of war, VIPs rescued and character skins. The POWs and VIPs will be part of your staff as Mother Base giving you an additional advantage.

Ground Zeroes will also have a companion app called iDroid. Available on iOS, Android and Xbox Smart Glass, the app replicates Big Boss’ in-game communication/map device allowing players to see maps, summon air support, and play cassette tapes found in Camp Omega. The iDroid app is free to download.

If that doesn’t convince you then how about a price drop? Originally priced at $39.99 for the Xbox One and PS4, Ground Zeroes will now cost $29.99. Xbox 360 and PS3 retail versions will stay at the price of $29.99, but the digital version on those consoles will cost $19.99.

Metal Gear Solid V:  Ground Zeroes will be out on March 18.

KONAMI LEAKS GROUND ZEROES DETAILS, INCLUDING EXCLUSIVE DLC, iDROID APP AND CARRY-OVER DATA TO THE PHANTOM PAIN

KONAMI unveils MGSV: GROUND ZEROES data unlocks for exclusive PHANTOM PAIN content. New iDroid app offers new level of freedom to MGSV players

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced new details for METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES.  As launch day nears, KONAMI is releasing new details around one of the year’s most anticipated games.

First, it was revealed that those who purchase METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES early on will receive exclusive DLC for use within THE PHANTOM PAIN. The DLC will only be available in the first batch of the retail version and for a limited period of time for the digital version. The DLC provides players with additional resources for a Mother Base area that will be available in THE PHANTOM PAIN. Mother Base is introduced during the events of GROUND ZEROES and plays a central role in the forthcoming METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. Unlocked through downloadable code, the added staff for Mother Base will give GROUND ZEROES players an edge when they take on THE PHANTOM PAIN.

 

In addition, anyone that purchases GROUND ZEROES will be able to unlock exclusive content within the game to carry-over to THE PHANTOM PAIN. Prisoners of war and VIPs rescued in GROUND ZEROS will be added to the Mother Base staff in THE PHANTOM PAIN, providing GROUND ZEROES players an early in-game advantage; character skins will also be able to be carried over.

 

METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES will also bring the game to life by featuring a second-screen iDROID app, which replicates Big Boss’ in-game communication/map device. Downloadable via iOS, Android and Xbox Smart Glass systems for FREE, the iDROID app syncs the main action to a secondary device. Users can call up maps, summon air support, or play any of the cassette tapes found throughout Camp Omega.

 

Last, KONAMI has also announced that it will offer both physical and digital versions of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, for an SRP of $29.99. Bringing pricing in-line with the “current generation” price, KONAMI aims to provide as many people as possible an opportunity to experience Kojima Productions’ FOX Engine and the first installment in the two-part METAL GEAR SOLID V experience. METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft will remain at the SRP of $29.99 for retail and via download for SRP $19.99.

 

METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES will be available in retail stores nationwide and online beginning March 18, 2014.
