Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is two hours long

Kojima's prologue to The Phantom Pain is super short.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes‘ main mission can be completed in under two hours, the March issue of Game Informer’s cover story on the game reveals.

“Judged just by the core story mission, Ground Zeroes is short,” Game Informer writes. “We completed it in just less than two hours.”

This, of course, is excluding side missions or the console-exclusive classic Snake (PlayStation) and Raiden (Xbox) missions.

Ground Zeroes, due out on March 18 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, is a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It will cost $30 on current-gen consoles and $40 on next-gen consoles.
