‘Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain’ Release Date & System Requirement Revealed; 28GB Required


Developer Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has announced the PC version of “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” will launch on September 1, the same day as its console version.

The PC version was originally supposed to be launched on September 15, IGN said.

Game Spot reported the announcement also included the system requirements and recommendations for the game.

The minimum specifications for “MGS 5” are: i5 processor at 3.4 GHz, a GTX 650 graphics card (or equivalent AMD GPU), and 4 GB of RAM, community manager Robert Peeler revealed on a Steam forum.

Peeler also listed recommended system specs for the game installation, such as 3.6 GHz i7 processor and a GTX 760 GPU. It also requires at least 28 GB of hard drive space to run the game.

Konami also announced pre-orders are not available via Steam and there are also freebies for PC owners. If you pre-order the game on Steam, you will receive “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zero” free of charge.

According to Games Spot, all owners of the game on Steam are also eligible to receive a documentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and some extra in-game items.

IGN added the PC version will also include 4K resolution support, extended graphics settings, custom soundtracks, and Steam Trading Cards.

“Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” will roll on September 1 for PC, PlayStation 3,  PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

Konami said the game will also have a dedicated squad-based competitive multiplayer component called “Metal Gear Online.”

However, gamers will have to wait for this. Konami said it will be available on October 6 on console and will go line on PC in January 2016.

Meanwhile, a new “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” gameplay trailer will be unveiled on Aug. 5, said IGN. Konami will show off the game’s Mother Base during the Gamescom conference this week, it added.
