There were more than a few snide remarks this week about consoles getting a few previously PC exclusives, such as the beloved Goat Simulator. In fact there were more than a few jokes about consoles getting all the games we were playing a year ago in general, even some of this years biggest console game releases are actually last years consoles releases, go figure! Yet in all this multi-format homogenization comes a beam of shining light, Metal Gear Solid is making a triumphant return to PC!
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and the upcoming The Phantom Pain were found to be coming to steam and while this was just an early rumour, it didn’t last long as Hideo Kojima himself confirmed that the games are real and are very much on their way to PC via Steam.
The Metal Gear Solid main series hasn’t graced the PC since Metal Gear Solid 2 and even then it was a pretty shoddy port at best. However, with the new games being based around PC like hardware and a more familiar code base, porting them to PC should be much easier process.
No release date just yet, but we suspect we’ll hear more in the next few weeks, either way this is an awesome day for PC gamers and hopefully it’s the push the developers need to bring the series back catalogue to PC as well, just to complete the set.
