Gamespot Preview | Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Shows Off Fox Engine Shine

Jonathan Toyad writes: The recent Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event at the Tokyo Midtown building did not only chronicle the history of the series in dramatic fashion and showed off new bits of Metal Gear Rising, but also introduced the next installment of the Metal Gear Solid series, complete with new workings of the new Fox Engine done up by Kojima Productions. While we can't actually show you the footage of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes that was shown since we were told not to do direct filming, at least we can tell you about what we saw during the 20 minute demo. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This preview is really interesting, it reveals new details.

Not sure if the guy knows which snake it is

He's listing Naked, Old and Solid.... but the snake in Ground Zeroes is wearing an eye-patch... so It must be big boss

Really want to see this demo

Not necessarily. Solidus was an exact clone (right down to Big Bosses actual age (not a baby clone)). Thus he also needed an eyepatch due to Big Bosses missing eye. It is possible that it's Solidus too. The vague title of "Snake" without the moniker's "Naked", "Solid", "Liquid" etc makes it all an open option (except it clearly isnt Solid or Liquid, due to the eye patch). But Solidus is entirely possible (Especially when it comes to Kojima's shocking story twists).

@Donbear

Your way off. Go replay MGS2. Soldius didnt wear an eyepatch until, he got his face severly burned when the jet crashed into Big Shell. Soldius was born just like Liquid and Solid. Eva in MGS4 even says a test tube clone is impossible. you need a womans womb for the eggs to grow. Its not Soldius, period. Its the legendary Big Boss.

Well, it's obvious it is Big Boss. He's using the Peace Walker uniform (one of them) has an Eyepatch and also has the Military Sans Frontiere shoulder guard.

Ground Zeroes could be referring to Major Zero's plan to clone and/or preserve Big Boss, and the shadows...well: Solid and Liquid.

Actually the snake in the picture above is wearing Echelon's Multi-Vision Goggles... so it must be Sam Fisher

Looks like its coming to the 360 considering the fact that they used a 360 controller for the demo. Good news!
StraightPath  +   598d ago
This game sounds awesome cant wait to see footage!!!

Oh it must be open world similar to,lets say Crysis huge open levels but closed. Not open world to lets say GTA4.

Should of ended at MGS4.
Still going to buy this though lol.
a_bro  +   598d ago
MGS still has a lot of loose ends to cover, especially in the past prior to the events that took place in MGS4.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   598d ago
Yeah true, I just thought it was a good send off to solid snake and Big Boss. I still want more MGS but I dunno, feel as though it should end on a high instead of Hideo Kojima getting tired of making the games and the chance the series might lose its magic.
jony_dols  +   598d ago
I'd still like to see proper remakes of the first two Snake games. But your right, continuing Solid's storyline after MGS4 would be stretching it.

Can't wait to see how Big Boss & Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes turns out!
pythonselkan  +   598d ago
Why is everyone saying he looks too much like Sam Fisher? MGS was the first and original stealth action game and you could clearly see the Thermal/NV goggles on Snake in MGS1's menu, so what's the big deal now? :P
M1chl  +   597d ago
For me personally it somewhat remindes of Sam Fisher, I don't exactly know why. I am not comapring which game was first, but just the picture, maybe the suite, maybe the colors...I don't know. Just seems fishy, like Sams Fishy : D
HammadTheBeast  +   598d ago
This. Is. Bad. Ass.
alb1899  +   598d ago
Pythonseika you can say what ever you want but the art looks too similar as Sam Fisher, is not about if it is or not stealth...... it is about how the carácter looks.
When you see the image you see more Fisher than solid snake.

Solid snake and sam fisher are both based on the same person. And yes there is a person that looks like them.
mt  +   598d ago
fisher is a tiny small fish compare to a snake which is a very great white shark.

can you say splinter cell??? :-/ the new splinter cell blacklist will blow this out of the water
DivineAssault  +   598d ago
a halo fan would say that.. No splinter cell game could even touch the nes MGS
Greysturm  +   598d ago
I remember the same said about conviction and MGS4, look how that turned out. Maybee your preferences will bias you toward SC but if scoring/sales/user reviews are anything to go by SC has seen better days and will need some serious work to overcome its lifelong nemesis.
Bumpmapping  +   598d ago
What with its awful graphics generic gameplay?
Braid  +   598d ago
No sir, Splinter Cell is a great game but MGS is just more than a game.
headblackman  +   598d ago
back in the day you might be right about that, but now mg has fallen and it can't get up. splinter cell is constantly evolving into the dominant between the two games as we know it. like it or love it, but it is what it is.
Greysturm  +   598d ago
When did it become dominant, when it ditched the stealth? When it dropped Ironside? When they revived a character that set the premise of the previous title? When they dropped the Clancyesque information warfare theme? When they changed the tempo to an action game?. Most old school fans would argue that what you name evolution is actualy degeneration.

So even if MGS has seen better days, it is still miles ahead of where splinter cell is currently at precisely because of the so called evolution.

Why do you even bother telling him that, he is abviously trolling. And mgs4 was a masterpiece, maybe not the best in the series, but it is a true mgs game from start to finish and is my third best in the series after number 1 ( the original not twin snakes) and 3.

Stop. Just stop.

Nobody believes what you're saying. Not even you.
cpayne93  +   598d ago
Dude, splinter cell has only gotten worse over the years. Blacklist looks way too action based.

So pc players have to wait 1 - 2 year till consoles are ready for this? :(
-Gespenst-  +   597d ago
Hmmm, intriguing that he may not actually be Big Boss...

"as the man in a coat rides off to an airfield before taking off on a helicopter to an undisclosed location. Before erasing the "XOF" emblem off of the helicopter, he took out his hat and speaks about what transpired in very vague words".

Im betting the entire vid of MGS: Ground Zeroes was flipped, as we already know XOF is FOX spelled backwards, so it would make sence.
