We can all breathe a little easier now, as Konami has confirmed a release date for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes — the prelude chapter to the the MGS5 saga will release on March 18th, 2014 in North America on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It will be available on March 20th across Europe.
Pricing is sporadic: In North America, the current-gen version will sell digitally for $19.99 and boxed retail copies will go for $29.99, with next-gen buyers asked to shell out $29.99 and $39.99, respectively. Europe gets quite the markup, being charged £19.99/£29.99 on current-gen and £29.99/£39.99 on next-gen.
Konami also announced an Xbox-exclusive mission called “Jamais Vu,” countering the PS1-inspired “Déjà Vu” mission that PlayStation buyers will get. You can’t have it all, I guess.
Finally, the publisher released the final box art for Ground Zeroes, which is embedded below.
