Check out our review of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, the playable prologue chapter for Kojima Productions’ Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, will be a little less expensive than we thought it would be on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Konami confirms. The price has officially dropped down to $29.99 for both boxed retail and download-only versions of the game on both platforms, from an original price $39.99 for boxed copies and $29.99 for download-only. It’s not a huge price drop, and nothing changes at all if you planned to buy the game via the PlayStation Store or Xbox Games Store, but the cost is now the same as it will be for physical versions of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases. The download-only version on the older consoles remains at a slightly cheaper $19.99.

Konami also confirmed that a purchase of Ground Zeroes during its initial production run, whether you pre-order it or nab a copy at launch in-store or via download, also includes exclusive downloadable content for The Phantom Pain. The add-on content gives players “additional resources for a Mother Base area that will be available in The Phantom Pain,” the press release notes. This “Mother Base” is introduced in Ground Zeroes, and it plays “a central role” in the subsequent game. The DLC unlocks via an included download code.

Lastly, Konami also confirmed the existence of an iDroid app. This second screen tool for Ground Zeroes “replicates Big Boss’ in-game communication/map device.” Players will be able to view maps, call in air support, or access any of the game’s cassette tape collectibles via this app, which is coming to iOS, Android, and “Xbox SmartGlass systems” as a free download. 

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes sneaks into stores on March 18, 2014.
