Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes will be released in spring 2014, Konami has announced.

Coming to the PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360, Ground Zeroes will serve as a prologue to The Phantom Pain - in which you're asked to infiltrate a Cuban prison camp - and introduce new gameplay ideas that will be fully realised in the sequel.

Series head Hideo Kojima said: "The advanced capabilities of the FOX Engine have allowed me to tell the new story in a new way. There will be a significant difference in what The Phantom Pain brings to the series, so we want to ease players into the new open world environment and its potential. As such, Ground Zeroes has been designed to introduce key elements, allowing them to fully benefit from all that the new game will offer."

Just to add some controversy to the mix, while the boxed editions of MGS5: Ground Zeroes will retail at £29.99, and the digital current-gen versions at £19.99, digital editions on the Xbox One and PS4 will cost £29.99.

Konami did not confirm boxed iterations would be available for the next-generation of consoles.

How long will the game be? I mean if it's £30 for an extend demo then that is a rip off (i.e. less then 5 hours). However if it's 8 to 10 hour then that is fairly generous/ decent deal.

It does say retail at, but when you see a game for £39.99 in high streets that usually means the RRP is £50 and they all knock it down to compete doesn't it?
