You Can Play Ground Zeroes for Cheap
It's important to note that there is another Metal Gear Solid 5 game out right now.
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes isn't as big as The Phantom Pain but it's still set in the Metal Gear universe and it serves as a prequel to the game that comes out in September. That's important to note for two reasons.
One, it will bring you up to speed with the game's plot and some of the key characters. You don't have to play the game to get a grasp on The Phantom Pain's story but it will definitely help.
And two, it will allow you to get familiar with the gameplay including the combat and stealth. Metal Gear Solid is a popular video game series but it's not for everyone. If you have some extra coin, you can try Ground Zeroes ahead The Phantom Pain and decide if the next game is worth your money and time.
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is dirt cheap for the Xbox and the PlayStation and those who are paid PS Plus members can download it for free during the month of June. It's a solid game and it will prepare you for the next game. It's worth a look right now.
