Konami has officially posted a release date for the forthcoming Hideo Kojima effort Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes – and it's something for fans of the series to get excited over.

The game will make its debut on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on March 18, 2014.

In addition, the company has also revealed details on the exclusive content coming to the Xbox versions of the game. Raiden, who did so much damage in Metal Gear Rising Revengeance earlier this year, will make hi return in a new mission called "Jamais Vu." You can see footage from the exclusive mission below.

We'll have continuing coverage on Ground Zeroes in the months ahead – it's going to be a hectic year.
