Leaked MGS V: Ground Zeroes Achievements Reveal Short Game


Someone has leaked the achievements for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The $40 prequel to the game’s second half, Phantom Pain (release date: TBA), has seen valuable information make its way to Xbox Achievements, revealing just how much of the game there should be to play.

Spoiler Warning: Leaked Achievements Contain Story-Sensitive Spoilers. Proceed At Your Own Discretion

Judging by the achievements alone, it looks like Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will consist of one long mission, followed by several Side Ops, several time-padding collectibles to find, some sort of trial system (perhaps some stretch of VR training?) and a console-specific bonus Op. The Xbox mission is Jamais Vu, starring Raiden, while Deja Vu involves Metal Gear Solid 1-era Snake.

Hopefully game director Hideo Kojima can pull off some major depth and content when it comes to Ground Zeroes. He’s taking a big risk with Metal Gear Solid V proper by splitting it up in two halves, especially with the intention of having consumers spend ~$100 total for the entirety of the story. Perhaps in an open world stealth environment, the experience might be worth it.

We’ll have to find out when Metal Gear Solid V releases for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 18th.
