Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes plot detailed on Konami's website

Metal Gear series fans craving any morsel of story info from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes can consult Konami's website for a brief summary of what Snake will find himself up against in his latest sneaking mission.

Set in 1975, Ground Zeroes directly follows up on the Vietnam War-era events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Leading a clandestine mercenary group in the Carribean, Snake sets out on a covert mission when a cohort goes missing after a botched rescue attempt.

Ground Zeroes serves as the introductory chapter to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, and is set to launch next spring for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PS4.
