Set in March 1975, a few months after the events of Peace Walker, players control returning protagonist Snake, also known as Big Boss, as he works with Militaires Sans Frontières (commonly abbreviated as MSF) to infiltrate an American black site on Cuban soil called Camp Omega. Once used as a refugee camp for people fleeing Cuba and Haiti, Camp Omega is home to an old prison that is being used for extraordinary rendition as it has no legal recognition under the United States Constitution. Snake's main objectives are the extraction of Paz Ortega Andrade, who has information regarding the whereabouts of the person or persons known as Cipher; and Ricardo "Chico" Valenciano Libre, a Sandinista and former child soldier who was captured by Skull Face, the commander of paramilitary force XOF, who are in control of Camp Omega. Snake's mission is supported by Kazuhira "Kaz" Miller and Huey from MSF's Mother Base in the Caribbean Sea.

Did You Know?
Ground Zeroes became free to download on the PlayStation 4 as part of the PlayStation Plus program during July 2015, and was free to download on the Xbox One as well during August 2015 as part of the Games with Gold program. Presumably this was because Konami wanted people to play Ground Zeroes before The Phantom Pain's release in September 2015. Ground Zeroes also became free to download on the Xbox 360 during October 2015 with Games with Gold. See more

Here. You earned it.
[tosses it to Chico
How's it feel to play the traitor? No more war games. You're a real man now, soldier.
[Chico takes his earphone plug out of his chest as Skull Face starts walking away
Give my regards to your Boss when you get home.

The Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC releases of this game feature an additional scene after the credits, which is not directly in the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. However, the owners of the latter consoles would get a free download of that cutscene as a bonus if they connect online. This is a short trailer showing Snake going into a coma and a handful of scenes from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. See more
