Those that bought Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes should keep an eye out for a new update from Konami for PlayStation 3, and 4, and Xbox 360 and One. Set to launch May 1, 2014, the update will give gamers access to content that was originally platform-exclusive.
For Sony gamers, this means they get access to the Jamais-Vu mission that was originally only available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Taking place in an alternate universe, Body Snatchers Snatchers (who seem really similar to the creatures by the same name in another Hideo Kojima game, Snatchers) have over run an American prison on the coast of Cuba. The mission was too much for Big Boss, so the CIA hired the time traveling cyborg Raiden as he is immune to body snatching.
While that sounds pretty cool, Xbox gamers won’t be left with nothing. They get access to the Déjà Vu mission. This is essentially a nod to the series’ first 3D instalment, referencing big events from Metal Gear Solid. It also features a flashback mode where the graphic style reverts back to the reduced polygon look of the old PlayStation era.
Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zero launched March 18, 2014 world wide on current and next gen consoles. It’s considered more of a prelude to the full-fledged Metal Gear Solid V game that was announced in 2012, but has yet to get a release date.
If this doesn’t sound enticing, the patch is completely free. So at the very least, it adds a few more hours to the game.
