I’m banking a stack of five cent coins scavenged from public phone boxes that we won’t see Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain in 2014. What we will see though is Ground Zeroes, a retail prologue of the game that sets up the new world of Big Boss and co. And it’s got some achievements waiting for players.
1000 Gamer points worth of achievements to be exact, spread across 15 of them. Xbox Achievements posted the list of what your efforts will reward you with in that game, which also hint at the plot. Needless to say, there be spoilers ahead for those of you who can put two and two together. And here we…go!
