Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain PC Versions Confirmed


With so much controversy over video game exclusives being the hot button topic of the week, it’s nice to report a story that everyone can be (or at least everyone should be) happy about. The Metal Gear Solid V Experience, including the already available on consoles Ground Zeroes and the upcoming Phantom Pain, will be available to PC gamers in addition to previously confirmed platforms PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Release dates haven’t been announced, but both titles will be released digitally via Steam. In fact, Steam pages have already appeared for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, just in case you want official proof that the PC versions are really happening.

Want more Metal Gear Solid V goodness? You got it! Straight from the game’s showing at Gamescom, here is a new 17-minute gameplay demo as well as a fresh batch of screenshots. If you aren’t used to Metal Gear‘s weird mix of nonsensical and hyper realistic, comic relief and mature themes, the demo may come off a bit strange. Seriously, Big Boss can strap Fulton recovery balloons to goats and order his horse to take a dump on cue. A pile of shit so powerful it causes enemy jeeps to spin out like a human slipping on a banana peel. It’s so stupidly unrealistic…and yet so awesomely Metal Gear!
