Hideo Kojima revealed some information regarding Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, which was previously demoed in Japan at a Metal Gear 25th anniversary event. While at PAX Prime, the Kojima Productions director stated that the upcoming game wasn’t going to be a follow-up or finale to Metal Gear Solid 5. Instead, the game will be a prologue to that title, reports Joystiq.

Ground Zeroes will feature a massive open world for players to interact with. Snake will have access to a helicopter to travel to different missions, and he’ll even be able to listen to some tunes. According to Kojima, the music that plays in the helicopter is customizable. That said, the director mentioned that louder music will give up your location a lot easier.

Ground Zeroes will run on the Fox Engine, and it’s scheduled to launch for the current crop of HD consoles. It should be noted, however, that the Fox Engine will be compatible with next-gen hardware. Whether or not Ground Zeroes is the mysterious Project Ogre we’ve heard a little bit about remains to be seen at this point.
