Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain PC Now Launching On September 1st, Metal Gear Online Delayed
Some good and bad news for Metal Gear fans.
Yes, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will now be launching on the same date as its console counterparts. Back in March, it was announced that The Phantom Pain will launch on September 15th on Steam, a full two weeks later compared to the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
“We initially did not think it would be possible to get such an epic game out onto PC in time for launch alongside its console counterparts, but all involved have worked diligently to meet the demands of our PC consumers,” stated Tomotada Tashiro, President of Konami Digital Entertainment. “Now PC users will be able to explore the vibrant and beautifully-realised locations and set-pieces that elevate Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain beyond all other action titles. We feel confident that Steam users will be satisfied with the contents we will provide for the Steam version,” he further stated in a press release shared with GamingBolt.
What’s more? Those who pre-order the Steam version will also get a free copy of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes. Now, that is an excellent deal. However we have some bad news as well. The console versions of Metal Gear Online will go live on October 6th, with the PC version set to release in January 2016.
Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain is due in just 4 weeks.
