Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes open world will have loading screens

And a day and night cycle to offer replayability.

Stealth adventure Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will include loading screens as players sneak about its open world map.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima divulged the information to Eurogamer after the game's recent unveiling.

Ground Zeroes will also offer a day and night cycle, something that will boost replayability, Kojima added. Players will see differences throughout the world depending on the time of day, such as changes in enemy troop patterns.

Publisher Konami has this morning zeroed in on a gallery of screenshots snapped from Ground Zeros' first gameplay trailer.

That means you get another chance to gaze at the grizzled face of Snake (or rather, Big Boss). Kojima showed footage of him infiltrating an army base to rescue the young Chico, a child soldier previously seen in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
