The video game landscape has gone open-world crazy.
Even franchises that have traditionally been linear are beginning to branch out. This is definitely true for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain , because Hideo Kojima just tossed out a pretty insane statistic…
As translated by NeoGAF poster raven777 , it seems the Ground Zeroes portion of MGSV is only about 1/300 the size of the total area found in the rest of the game (the Phantom Pain section). Kojima has said before that The Phantom Pain areas will be much bigger, and Ground Zeroes will act as a prologue and give players a chance to adapt to the new sandbox style. We're assuming Kojima is referring to the entirety of the rest of the game as compared to Ground Zeroes but still, that's impressive.
And it gives us a good idea of what to expect from MGSV. If you're a long-time series fan, what do you think about this new open-world focus?
