MGS V: Ground Zeroes offers players new methods of sneaking and traversal methods, as well as the choice in what order the story events take place by selecting missions in any order they like. The game was originally set to be released alongside The Phantom Pain, but an extended development time resulted in director Hideo Kojima splitting the project in two parts so that players will get an early access to Metal Gear Solid V. Critical reception to the game has been generally positive, with praise aimed towards its mechanics, voice-acting, story, and graphics, and with criticism aimed towards its short length.
Originally, a physical release was limited to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would only be receiving a digital release, but on December 10th, 2013, it was announced that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would also receive physical releases. On the 13th of August, 2014, Konami announced MGS V Ground Zeroes is coming to Steam, along with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
