'''''Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes''''' is an upcoming StealthBasedGame in the long running ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series by Kojima Productions. First announced at the Metal Gear [=25th=] Anniversary event on August [=30th=] 2012, ''Ground Zeroes'' is notably the first game developed on Kojima Productions' FOX Engine and serves as a prologue to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' (which was announced several months later). It is unknown whether it'll be DividedForPublication or part of the same package, since the official ''Phantom Pain'' website and reveal trailer uses imagery from ''Ground Zeroes''. During E3 2013, Konami finally confirmed Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are one game.

''Ground Zeroes'' begins shortly after the events of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker''. Snake returns on a covert mission to extract Paz and Chico from Camp Omega in Cuba. At the same time, the mysterious XOF organization makes its move, led by a man known as Skull Face...

----
* BodyHorror:
** Chico has a ''headphone jack'' in his chest.
** The XOF Commander Skull Face, who looks as if he's ''rotting.''
** Paz being operated on with clearly no anaesthetic in order to remove a bomb from her abdomen. The look of agony on her face is very evident and very disturbing.
* CatchPhrase:
-->'''Big Boss:''' Kept you waiting huh?
* ContinuityNod: In the opening of ''Ground Zeroes'', Kaz Miller repeats a line from Colonel Campbell in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''.
-->'''Campbell / Miller:''' Excellent, Snake. Age hasn't slowed you down one bit.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: The heroic Big Boss has a thin scar running down his cheek. The villainous commander of XOF on the other hand is covered in disfiguring burn scars.
* GunshipRescue: Snake now has the ability to call in a helicopter to pull him out of hot spots or provide air support; and it'll play music of the player's choice as it flies in.
* ImmediateSequel: The events of ''Ground Zeroes'' take place less than a month after ''Peace Walker''.
* DamselInDistress: The game opens with Snake attempting to rescue Paz, who survived the events of ''Peace Walker'', from the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba so he can interrogate her about the Cipher organization.
* MultiPartEpisode: [[WordOfGod Director Hideo Kojima]] considered ''Ground Zeroes'' the "prologue chapter" of ''MGSV''.
* MythologyGag: The opening scene of ''Ground Zeroes'' has Big Boss removing his infrared goggles while facing towards the camera, recreating the title screen[=/=]promotional art of ''[=MGS1=]''.
* TheOner: The first ''Ground Zeroes'' trailer is a single continuious shot, with zero cuts.
* OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo: ''Ground Zeroes'' is not a numbered entry in the series, despite being the first console ''MGS'' game since ''[=MGS4=]''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since it's actually a prologue to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''.
* ShoutOut:
** Snake's rainy cliff face climb in the opening of ''Ground Zeroes'' is based on a scene in ''Film/TheGunsOfNavarone''. Kojima previously cited the film as an influence.
** You can set the classic Wagner tune RideOfTheValkyries to play during a GunshipRescue.
* TechDemoGame: Developed mainly to showcase the capabilities of [=KojiPro=]'s FOX Engine and meant to be an appetizer to the actual ''MGS V''.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' promotional material made it clear that ''Ground Zeroes'' ends with the destruction of MSF's Mother Base, as well as Big Boss suffering massive injuries and falling into a coma for nine years.
** Keeping in mind that said promotion material for ''V'' was available before ''Ground Zeroes'' even had a release date confirmed.
* {{Understatement}}: When Kaz tells Snake that he'll be infiltrating the base alone, he responds "Fine. I like some alone time now and then".
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted. ''Ground Zeroes'' takes place around the real world Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba.
* WideOpenSandbox: The first title in the series to be open world, allowing for more creative and diverse approaches to infiltration.
