At this past weekend’s PAX convention fans were scrambling around the Konami booth because of Metal Gear Solid’s 25th year anniversary. Something big was bound to happen, sure there is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance coming out later this year but with the talks of a new Fox engine and Project ogre fluttering around something was bound to show up. Konami has delivered with an 11 minute in game demo of the next game in the Metal Gear series Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.
The game is planned to be an open world Metal Gear game where you can sneak around Camp Omega using the terrain, vehicles and objects to get around. The trailer also teases at the reappearance of Liquid Snake. Don’t get too excited though, Kojima has stated that this is not Project Ogre and that it is still in the works, but you can get excited over that engine. The engine started development in 2008 after Guns of the Patriots so that games could be developed faster, easier and on multiple platforms for Kojima Productions. If you haven’t noticed the new details already watch that video again and look out for the moisture effects, ambient lighting, flowing fabric, terrain textures, cast shadows and character details. Kojima is in talks about letting other Konami games use the Fox Engine giving a specific example of the Silent Hill series.
