With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain getting closer to release, many who haven’t played Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes are probably going to do so to get a taste of the new open world gameplay experience and learn more about the events that put Big Boss’ life in danger.
Japanese PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to play the PlayStation 4 version of the game without spending any money. Konami has confirmed on its Japanese Twitter profile that the game will be among the Japanese PlayStation Plus titles of June. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be available to subscribers from June 3th until July 7th.
Unfortunately we don’t know if the Konami game will be offered to North American and European PlayStation Plus subscribers as well. Apparently some big titles will be offered in the West so there’s a small chance that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes could be among them.
Last week some new details on one of the characters of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain have emerged online thanks to a new interview. Actor James Horan, who voices Skull Face in both Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, has revealed in an interview with Fragged Nation that he doesn’t have much dialogue in The Phantom Pain. He apparently recorded around an hour and half and the whole process was pretty quick as he didn’t have much to say. This may mean that Skull Face’s role in the game may not be as big as many anticipated.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released in all regions on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC this September. The game will be set nine years after the events of Ground Zeroes, detailing how Big Boss will turn from a legendary war hero to the villain Solid Snake had to defeat in Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
UPDATE: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been confirmed for North American and European PlayStation Plus as well. Skulls of the Shogun: Bonafide Edition, Super Exploding Zoo, Futuridium EP Deluxe, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Cloudberry Kingdom are the other titles of the month.
