Kojima wants Ground Zeroes to be “a true open world experience” with “limitless gameplay”

OPM: Forget The Phantom Pain’s smoke and mirrors for a second: the real Hideo Kojima has spoken actual words about what he’s, “trying to accomplish with Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes”. The thrust of it is everything. He’s trying to do everything. (Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

Kojima: So, do you want to get there by helicopter, or do you want to get there by plane, are you going to ride in a vehicle, or are you going to take a bike. = yes please

I think DayZ/Wasteland are great inspirations for this. These mods prove how amazing open-world games can be with stealth involved. Compare DayZ to a 100% action-focused open-world game like Battlefield 3 and you instantly notice how much the stealth element makes open-world games greater.

One of my favorite gameplay moments of MGS3 was when you had to attack some small military base that had a radio tower and a helicopter. If I recall correctly, it was right after a claymore mine field. I just loved approaching the base from any angle I wanted and plant C4 everywhere and plan my attack. Hopefully Ground Zeroes can recreate this in a truly open world

..........about friggin time!

Next Gen Consoles have the power for OPEN WORLD Games and that is what the best Games IMO are.

OPEN WORLD, LIMITLESS GAMEPLAY

See Arma 3 or DayZ or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. if you don't understand!

Corridors and Linear Game Play are DEAD!

a true open world experience with that level of graphics? i really hope GZ is a next gen only game, Kojima shouldn't release this game on current gen consoles especially ps3, everyone knows how bad open world games run on that console because of the sucky memory not to mention the long loading times.. and 360 will have multiple discs, that's why this game should go next gen!

If it's on PS3 and 360, then the Wii U would not be the one doing the gimping.

Super exited for Ground Zeroes.

me too, can't wait. Still didn't finish MGS4 (I did finish it before the trophies were available, but not since the trophy patch) and I'm hoping for some MGO3 news :D

Ground Zeroes is my most wanted game for next gen :D MGS4 is by far the greatest game for me of all time :D

I like how ambitious he is. What he's striving to achieve is no mean feat and plenty of developers have failed in their attempts to offer what they originally set out to do when designing an open world game.

Obviously, a loose interpretation of the word limitless should be applied here but I think Kojima can really deliver when it comes to making the world featured in the Phantom Pain as one that feels organic. He has always had an eye for quirky details and with MGS4, there were several moments of these little touches that made you stop and realise how much the game was a labour of love and why others didn't follow suit.

The only real danger here is that, that kind of desire to maintain that attention to detail inevitably gets diluted to achieve the scope of a large open world simply by virtue of the fact that you have a such a large play area to contend with, with all the complexities of catering for a dynamic, believable and immersive game space.

But at the same time, this is a natural progression for the franchise (if it is part of it). With the likes of Kojima at the helm, you feel confident that it isn't just the traditional formula injected with steroids; it will be bigger no doubt but also better by being smarter.

Have they official talked about what platforms this is for?
plaZeHD  +   642d ago
PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Next gen platforms are confirmed.
MasterCornholio  +   642d ago
Hmm i wonder if Kojima considers the Wii U a next gen platform.

Metal gear solid ground zero is going to be awesome im so glad Kojima hasn't given up the franchise and is improving every installment greatly.

Metal Gear Skyrim?
SuperKiing  +   642d ago
Take the word skyrim from your comment and you got yourself a great franchise.

This is awesome. I alwayz dreamed of an OPEN WORLD mgs game. Im really excited for this game. MGS open world=EPIC.
Paul85  +   642d ago
Now that kojima has the fox engine and powerful current, and next gen consoles. I am anxiously waiting to see his dreams come true and show mgs fans what the franchise was intended to be but was limited by technological barriers. This is the moment I have been waiting for since I played mgs on my playstation in 1998 and forever solidified my interest in everything mgs!
azshorty2003  +   642d ago
Well if anyone can make that happen, it's him. Can't wait.

A Metal Gear game with endless gameplay... Kojibear... what are you trying to do to us?

Guess I will retire early to play this game, but first... I need to find a job.
trenso1  +   642d ago
MGO3 please that community near the last MGOs ending was amazing it was a very tight knit community
BlaqMagiq24  +   642d ago
Please reveal MGO 3 alongside the GDC presentation MGO 2 was one of my all time favorite multiplayers ever.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   642d ago
Gotta love Koji's ambitions.
