Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes PC superiority vs console

Konami has kept PC gamers waiting anxiously, but now we are pleased to see that a Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes release date on PC is now official. The prequel to MGS5: Phantom Pain is going to be available to buy this December, directly on the Steam store.

Ground Zeroes has been available on console since March of course, and with a gap of more than half a year PC gamers were well within their right to voice concern on whether a PC release would still happen.

Now we know that the game is definitely on the way, as Konami has confirmed that Ground Zeroes will launch on December 18. While the release frustration is clearly evident, PC gamers can bask in the glory of having a version that will undoubtedly be graphically superior to console.

Konami has already hinted towards this eventuality, by saying that the PC version is not only going to be 4K compatible for those that have the hardware, but the PC build will also support better visuals all around with an increase in models on screen, light sources and shadow resolution.

These reasons alone may be enough to justify a purchase, but there will still be the inevitable complaints that Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes is too short – a complaint that was almost universal after the March console release.

Are you still planning to experience Metal Gear Solid 5 on PC regardless of game length, simply to bask in the glory of maximum graphics output? Let us know if you intent to buy the game this December.

Phew. My “have to buy” list was getting too crazy anyways. And this was on it. Looks like I will be skipping this as I have a PS4. I never understand why devs say that that are favouring a particular platform. Coz it totally annoys all other potential consumers. Especially when it goes beyond graphics. Let’s hope for the dev’s sake, that not too many PC players torrent it. They are playing with fire as even well-intentioned PC gamers will have pretty thin wallets after November. Let’s hope they haven’t overspent in November. I know I will be overspending in… Read more »
