In a recent press release, Konami has announced that the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is being moved from September 15th to September 1st. This release date coincides with the console release date, so for the first time ever, a Metal Gear Solid game is coming to all platforms at the same time. This doesn’t effect console gamers at all, but it’s indeed something that PC gamers are sure to be happy about.
Considering the controversy that’s been surrounding MGSV: TPP, it’s great to see that fans of the series can all play the game at launch. And the biggest perk for PC gamers is that The Phantom Pain’s prologue, Ground Zeroes, will be released on the same day for free. Although, the one draw back with this moved release date for PC means that Metal Gear Online (the game’s multiplayer mode) will take a bit longer to actually launch. So when the game released in a few weeks, only the single player mode will be available. Hit the jump to check out the full press release!
