Phantom Pain Revealed to be Metal Gear Solid 5, Ground Zero is Prologue
In a move that shouldn’t surprise anyone, Konami revealed that The Phantom Pain is actually Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
The game, slated to be out on PS3 and 360 this year, will follow Snake after a nine-year coma. During the intro, Snake will spend much of his escape crawling around.
As soon in the trailer, hallucinations look to have a big role in the game.
In addition, Hideo Kojima revealed that Ground Zeroes, which had previously been announced, will actually be a rescue mission that is a prologue to The Phantom Pain. The game will take place nine years before PP.
The titles will be two separate games. You can see a trailer for The Phantom Pain below.
