Kojima Productions has revealed, at the MGS 25th Anniversary event, a new game called Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. This game is directed by Kojima himself and was showcased on the PC. Yeap, you read that right. A Metal Gear Solid game that was unveiled running on the PC. Our guess is that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is powered by the Fox Engine, and this was the first public unveil for that engine. After all, let’s not forget that Kojima himself has hinted it back in May.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is said to be an open world game with Old Snake that will feature night environments and some drooling visual effects, like raining.
Marc MacDonald, Executive Director at 8-4, was tweeting various information bits about MGS: GS and according to him, Snake will be able to crawl in order to avoid searchlights, kill guards, ride jeeps, and call in heli for evac.
Sounds familiar? Yeap, this sounds like a proper Splinter Cell game. Ironic, isn’t it?
Brad Douglas, on the other hand (who was also present at MGS 25th Anniversary) claims that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes’ demo was ‘truly amazing’ and that it ran on a PC at current-gen specs.
In other words, this MGS game will most probably hit our beloved platform.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
