Metal Gear Solid 5 details sneak out of Spanish gaming mag

Fresh details on Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes have surfaced in the pages of Hobby Consolas (via MGI), a Spanish gaming magazine who recently attended Konami’s ‘boot camp’ event for the stealth-action title.

First up, the healing regeneration only applies to minor injuries. Should Snake suffer considerable damage, you’ll still have to patch yourself up by utilizing healing sprays.

Despite controversy surrounding the game’s length, the publication notes that Ground Zeroes isn’t short. In fact, it notes that the average player can put 8-10 hours into the game, while Kojima Productions’ best player put in over 100 digging up all its secrets.

The magazine extolled the Fox Engine, stating it looks ‘simply spectacular, offering some stunning body and facial animations that are among the best in the industry.

Finally, players will have to be extra careful in avoiding detection. Guards can now spot Snake’s footprints in the mud and possess a better field of vision, plus carry out randomized patrol routes.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is scheduled to ship for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on March 18 in the U.S. and March 20 in Europe.
