Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes platform exclusive DLC will eventually see a full release

I really enjoyed Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for what it was, and despite many people calling it a "short" game, I've clocked around 30 hours so far -- far more than the vast majority of regular releases. Part of ...

Both Sony and Microsoft have their own platform-exclusive missions for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and you'll have to do a bit of legwork to unlock them. Basically, you'll need to grab all nine XOF patches hidden throughout the main mission, then complete the main objectives.

Here in this video I'll show you the location of every patch, and pause for a second to also show it on the iDroid map. If you're wondering how to get the second patch at the start of the video, just go prone, and press in the left stick to roll from side to side constantly until it falls out.

XOF patch progress only saves at checkpoints -- so if you get a game over, you may need to recollect a few.

So how do the two platform-exclusive Ground Zeroes missions compare? photo
So how do the two platform-exclusive Ground Zeroes missions compare?
by Chris Carter

As you may have heard, both Sony (PS3, PS4) and Microsoft (Xbox 360, Xbox One) have their own piece of exclusive content for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This isn't a pre-order bonus mind you -- it's built into every copy of the game.

Naturally this can lead to a choice between the two, so let's take a look at what you're getting.

Watch Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes get beaten in 10 minutes

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes can be as long as you want it to be. But it can also be pretty short. How short? Well as Eurogamer demonstrated, you can beat the entire story in just 10 minutes.

As you may have gleaned from my review, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is not for everyone. It only features one area, very little story, and it's only a glimpse of what's to come in Phantom Pain.

But that doesn't mean it isn't a ton of fun to play, and there's plenty to do outside of the relatively short story mission.

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
by Chris Carter

Ever since I randomly picked up a conspicuous looking Metal Gear NES catridge in 1990, I've been enjoying Snake's adventures. I've collected every Metal Gear game released in the US, and while I'm busy waiting for the next entry, I'm keeping up with the encyclopedic amount of data that fills the series' lore -- which is a task all on its own.

And wait we shall, as Phantom Pain is still completely up in the air regarding its release date, leaving Kojima and crew to satiate our needs with Ground Zeroes. But even as a fan, there are a few shortcomings that make me hesitant to call Zeroes a "must have" franchise entry, despite how fun it might be.

Platidumb! Metal Gear Solid V won't have platinum trophy

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes won't have a platinum trophy. Hopefully that doesn't bother you lot that planned to infinitely replay the short, replayable game. Kojima explained on Twitter: The reason GZ doesn't have Plat...

MGS: Ground Zeroes reversible cover art looks fantastic

The cover art for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is so serious. What's the matter, Snake? It's like you're about to lose an arm or something. Oh ... right. On the other hand, the reversible cover art looks so hot. The artwor...

Hideo Kojima: Metal Gear wasn't expected to sell

Metal Gear is one of the most successful and popular videogame franchises to date, but when Metal Gear Solid was being developed, neither Konami nor Hideo Kojima had high hopes for it. Surprisingly enough, that turn...

Kojima gives some insight as to the design of Ground Zeroes

While in Japan to preview Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I was taken on a tour of the Kojima Productions offices. In theory, there's a certain magic to getting to go behind the scenes of where videogames get made. In reality, videogames are usually made in regular offices, with desks and cubicles, and because of this, studio tours can sometimes be a bit dry.

Thankfully, that wasn't the case here.
