Staring into space

Beyond last weekend’s reveal, Konami has been frustratingly quiet about Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes – but it has released a handful of high-definition screenshots for you to pore over. Unlike the sub-par captures available elsewhere, these are direct-feed – allowing you to see every crinkle on protagonist Snake’s lived-in face.

The game is running on Kojima Productions' new Fox Engine technology, which looks every bit as stunning as publisher Konami hyped. There's no word on a release date for Ground Zeroes just yet, but creator Hideo Kojima has teased that the title's targeting current generation consoles. We don't believe him.
