The lights are on
To the surprise of no one, today we learned that The Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid V, which begs the question, what is Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes?
After showcasing the new Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer, and showing off the Fox engine at GDC, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima posted an extended message on Twitter explaining how these different games fit together.
"Ground Zeroes" is a prologue of "MGSV". 9 years after that event will be "The Phantom Pain". MGSV is constructed w/ prologue and main game "TPP". The game play demo I presented today is the opening of "TPP" which is tutorial that starts from crawling.
It sounds like Metal Gear Solid V will be feature a similar split to Metal Gear Solid 2, with Ground Zeroes working like the opening Tanker chapter, and The Phantom Pain working like the Plant chapters that made up the rest of the game... I think.

Yea I assumed that's how it'd work.
interesting canrt wait to hear more
Been saying this since TPP was revealed.
I think every mgs fan knew this already by heart.
Everything that I kinda figured out already myself. If this anything like MGS 2, then they're at least at a good start working they're way back up to Snake Eater prominence again.
Ground Zeroes: Manhattan Tanker: Virtuous Mission?
It looks amazing as always but I will miss David Hayter's awesome voice as Snake.
When I glanced at the picture I totally thought that was an image of the Governor... Gosh I've been watching to much Walking Dead.... BUT WOOOO METAL GEAR SOLID V!!!!!!
Works for me! I'm just so ready for this game.
That's what I took away from the comment as well. Intro chapter to set up the main game.
Sounds about right. It's pretty cool that the game will be across that big of a timeline. Can't wait to see more information on this game.
Being that Peace Walker is my favorite MGS game, I'm really excited to see the direction that V is taking!
Oh Kojima you couldn't just say it was one game from the get go and let people play it and figure out that there is a 9 year pass?
What's with the one horn?
I saw the trailer and am a little confused i don't like to big of changes in games and that looks like a giant change. I thought i was gonna hate metal gear rising but ended up loving it. I guess we will have to wait and see.
I just wish they'd put them all individually priced on PSN so I can download them in the correct order. MGS4 PLZ!! And beg Nintendo to allow us to port over they're GameCube version of Twin Snakes.
ground zeros is saving chico, and maybe paz? then phantom pain is kaz miller. or... the other way around, we'll see...
