Ground Zeroes is rooted in the franchise’s stealth-action gameplay, with players encouraged to avoid conflict when possible, but perfectly capable of engaging in lethal combat in order to achieve their objectives. However, Ground Zeroes also represents a departure from traditional Metal Gear games by setting its action in an open-world environment. Snake can commandeer vehicles, pick up enemy weapons, and use his iDroid gadget to obtain mission intelligence, view a map, and call in a helicopter for extractions.
