Hideo Kojima revealed a couple of interesting tidbits regarding Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes at Eurogamer Expo today. The recently-revealed stealth game will allow Snake to build a base of operations that can be accessed between open-world sections via helicopter, specialised and fortified from enemy attack. We'll naturally be able to walk around it to admire our handiwork, but Kojima Productions are also looking into a smartphone app for players to customise their base while out and about.
The base will provide a central hub for weapons development and research, much in the same vein as Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
Ground Zeroes hasn't yet been dated, though it's slated to release on current-gen consoles and PC. For now, here's the extended reveal trailer.
