Originally the game was supposed to release September 15th on PC, but the team has improved the game and will release it September 1st, which is the same time as consoles.
Ground Zeroes will also come absolutely free for all PC users that pre-order the game on Steam. That isn’t the end of the bonus either.
Pre-orders will also get:
All Steam customers will receive a collector’s video which reveals behind the scenes footage and a unique documentary, in addition to DLC in the form of a ‘Venom Snake’ emblem and Mother Base Staff.
The team talked about the work that needed to be done to move up the date.
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,” commented Tomotada Tashiro, President of Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “Now PC users will be able to explore the vibrant and beautifully-realized locations and set-pieces that elevate METAL GEAR SOLID V: 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.”
MGSV: The Phantom Pain promises to be the biggest MGS title yet, and it seems it will officially be Kojima’s last attempt with the series as he has departed from Konami.
