Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is the prologue to Metal Gear Sold 5: The Phantom Pain. While Ground Zeroes is launching on all current generation and next generation systems, The Phantom Pain is exclusive to next generation only.
Konami also released the official description for Ground Zeroes, you can check it out below.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes acts as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and takes place one year after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Assuming control of the legendary Snake (a.k.a. Big Boss), players are charged with the infiltration of Camp Omega where both Paz and Chico are held. The hostages hold key information concerning Snake and his private military organisation that Snake and his ally Kaz Miller must prevent from being exposed. Ground Zeroes charts the rescue and the subsequent fallout that leads into the beginning of the The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes also acts as a bridge between previous Metal Gear Solid titles, easing players into the vaunted open world of MGSV.
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes’ release date makes it seem like The Phantom Pain, which is the continuation of the story in Ground Zeroes, might release in 2015. According to Kojima, The Phantom Pain is about 300 times bigger than Ground Zeroes.
Earlier at TGS, Kojima gave a demo of Metal Gear Solid 5 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is also the first Metal Gear Solid game where Snake is not being voiced by David Hayter. Instead, we have gotten Keifer Sutherland as the voice of Snake.
