Johannesburg - Konami Digital Entertainment has announced the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 editions of its Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will boast a Sony platform exclusive mission that celebrates the series’ heritage across the PlayStation range.
Series creator Hideo Kojima has celebrated the heritage of the acclaimed Metal Gear Solid franchise across numerous Sony gaming systems, by creating a bespoke mission for the newest addition to the PlayStation family.
Users will be able to access a unique ‘MGS1 Deja-Vu’ mission that references key events from the original PSOne classic, Metal Gear Solid.
The exclusive mission tasks the user with reproducing famous scenes from the original game. As players recreate the iconic moments, a flashback system reproduces the original graphical style of the original PSOne game - complete with greatly reduced “vintage” polygon count - and introduces familiar enemies and weather conditions for added authenticity.
The mission will be available to both digital and boxed users, and will ultimately let players assume the appearance of the classic “Solid Snake” within the Ground Zeroes universe once proper conditions are met.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is scheduled to be released in Spring 2014, and acts as a prequel to events in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
