New Metal Gear Solid Announced

Avatar
By Leigh Cobb30-08-2012

For those who can't get enough of Metal Gear Solid, have no fear, for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes has just been announced.

Between Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, both titles are currently firm leaders in the running for worst game names of the decade.

The unveiling was a real time demo, shown off behind closed doors. Thankfully, plenty of details got out on Twitter. @markmacd had two particularly interesting tweets:

"Demo of "Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes", started w cutscene (all realtime), went into gameplay, open world, night, raining, base. AMAZING,"

"Snake crawled @ avoiding searchlights, killed guard, rode jeep, called in heli for evac. Sounds like MG, but the scale & atmosphere... Wow."

I've never seen a man so excited about rain. So, details are obviously sketchy at this point, but hey, a new Metal Gear Solid huh? Who'd have thought it, I'm sure this is massive shock to everyone in the gaming industry.

My extreme levels of sarcasm aside, the demo was also running on a PC at "current gen specs" according to Brad Douglas on Twitter. Thank god for that, for a minute there I thought it would be running on old gen PC specs. We also know that it is running on the brand new Fox Engine, which has left those who have seen it impressed.

We're still waiting on an official announcement, maybe some screens and a trailer, but for now just let the thought of another entry in this ever present franchise gently rock you to sleep at night.

ah man, seriously, this text makes me remind the great moments I had with the first sequence in MGS 2 with solid snake, when he infiltrated a cargo ship, so intense and atmospheric. MGS, in my opinion, has always been superior to Splinter cell, despite both of being a different breed of stealth games. The series just has it all: great plot (yes, some forced theories and nonsense moments), a likeable and unique cast, deep gameplay elements and nice visuals. The voice work has always been above average and if this game brings all these elements together @ 1080p 60fps, then I'm all for it.

Oh man, I just hope this gets released on PC, I'm only holding onto my PS3 because of this series, GO MULTIPLATFORM (and release the MGS collection for PC as well). A man can dream right?
