Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has shipped one million copies worldwide, Konami and Kojima Productions announced.

To celebrate, an update will be released for the game across all platforms on May 1. As detailed yesterday, it will grant PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 players access to the previously Xbox-exclusive “Jamais Vu” mission, and Xbox One and Xbox 360 players to the previously PlayStation-exclusive “Deja Vu” mission.

Find details on both missions below.

“Déjà Vu” Misson

Originally launched exclusively for PlayStation platforms, the Déjà vu mission, often referred to as a “throwback” mission, is based on missions from the original Metal Gear Solid game and lets users play as a pixelated, low polygon Solid Snake. To progress in the mission, players must recreate the key scenes. As a reward, players will see flashbacks to the previous game.

“Jamais Vu” Misson

“Jamais Vu”, the Xbox platform exclusive mission, references the 1988 game, “Snatcher,” the second video game written and directed by Hideo Kojima. In the mission, the menacing bioroid “Snatchers” are dropped into Camp Omega to kill and steal the identities of everything they come in contact with. To kill off these enemies, players need a hero other than Snake—enter Raiden, the superhuman ninja cyborg from previous Metal Gear titles, including most recently Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. This time, Raiden dispenses with his High-Frequency Blade in favor of heavy weaponry to completely annihilate the “Snatcher” threat.

    This result doesn’t mean more and more publishers releasing 2 hours demo for 30 bucks, right?


    EDIT: Nevermind, it’s shipped, not sold.

      Not as many could get away with it.

      But I imagine this won’t be the last one out there.

        It isn’t even the first one… Sony did it right with GT5, offering an online mode with the demo (er… “prologue”).

        I agree though to pull it off the series must be respected and not have yearly updates.

      Shipped a million…..sold around 580,000 worldwide…

    I’d like to think they are just being generous but I bet it has more to do with the fact that it sold like crap.

    I love MGS. I’m just not willing to fork over what they’re asking for a demo.
