Watch: First Ever Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes Footage

It was announced just two days ago that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes would be the latest iteration of the popular stealth-action franchise, but all we got were a few details into the story and a Splinter Cell style piece of artwork. In traditional Metal Gear Solid fashion, Konami and Kojima Productions have released a lengthy 11-minute-long video demonstrating the power of their new Fox Engine and even some gameplay to go along with it. Cinematics galore as we get a taste of the events that isĀ ensuingĀ along with some beautiful visuals.

It’s hard to tell how much of this is smoke and mirrors as it didn’t look quite as sharp when the video switched to Snake. Maybe it’s just the bump mapping on the rocks or the area that was selected, but the gameplay doesn’t look as visually stunning as the cinematics. Regardless, the Fox Engine is still something to be impressed by as this is by far the best looking Metal Gear game to date. The official release platforms, shown at the end of the video, are the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
