  • "Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes" is part of a sub-series of prequels in the Metal Gear series, taking place after "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker." Ground Zeroes will stand alone as the first part to Metal Gear Solid V, acting as the prologue for the upcoming "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain." "Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes" follows Big Boss' infiltration in American black site on Cuban soil called Camp Omega for the extraction of both Cipher agent Pacifica Ocean and Sandinista child soldier Ricardo "Chico" Valenciano Libre.

    Set in 1975, sometime after the events of Peace Walker, protagonist Big Boss/Snake (Kiefer Sutherland) as he works with Militaires Sans Frontières to infiltrate an American black site on Cuban soil called Camp Omega. His main objectives are the extraction of Cipher agent Pacifica Ocean/Paz Ortega Andrade (Tara Strong) and Sandinista child soldier Ricardo "Chico" Valenciano Libre (Antony Del Rio), who were both involved in the events of Peace Walker. Inside the camp, XOF commander Skull Face (James Horan) meets with Chico and informs him that Paz is dead before leaving the base with his forces, discarding their XOF insignia. Meanwhile, Kazuhira "Kaz" Miller (Robin Atkin Downes) and Huey (Christopher Randolph) prepare for a scheduled UN inspection on Mother Base due to suspicions of them possessing a nuclear weapon, which was acquired during the events of Peace Walker.

    Snake infiltrates Camp Omega and finds Chico, who claims Paz is dead. Using a recording that Chico gives him, Big Boss deduces that Paz was moved deeper into the camp. He sneaks into Camp Omega and manages to rescue Paz as well. However, on the way back to Mother Base, Chico discovers that Paz was surgically implanted with a bomb, prompting Big Boss to remove it by hand. They then arrive to Mother Base to see it in flames as XOF forces attack. ...

    Did You Know? "Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes" was originally conceived as a direct sequel to 2010's PSP release of "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker" and was to be released on both the PSP and PS3. This was delayed multiple times due to development issues and other projects. After learning about the upcoming generation of game consoles the PSP version was scrapped and "MGS V" ended up the way it is now.
