Metal Gear Solid V PC release pushed forward, specs revealed and new screenshots

Konami has announced three important pieces of information for those looking to play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on a PC.

First up, we have a bit of good news. Originally, the PC port was supposed to be released two weeks after its console counterparts, but Konami has shifted the dates to all coincide with one another. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released on Sept. 1 across all consoles and the PC now.

A bit of a counter weight though, the bad news is that Metal Gear Online, the online component packed in with the game, won’t be available for some time. The console version will launch on Oct. 6, and the PC version won’t go live until early 2016. Perhaps that online component was holding the PC launch back.

And finally, we have the neutral news, meaning that if you want to play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, your console must be this tall to ride, via Steam.
