Ground Zeroes, The Phantom Pain Headed to Steam

Konami Europe accidentally spilled the beans a little bit early.

UPDATE: It's been confirmed.

--

More and more console games are also coming to the PC, but some heavy hitters remain elusive. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes will not be among those games, however.

Psst, check the bottom right corner.

A Metal Gear-related event is happening at Gamescom as I write this, but Konami Europe updated its website a tad early. Oops. We should hopefully have more details on Metal Gear's expansion onto the PC soon.

Awesome! Can't wait to play it. I doubt this would ever happen, but it'd be nice if the rest of the series came to PC as well.

Great News :D

YYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS

Cool. Not only because I get to play MGS5 on my platform of choice, but because it might mean there will be less of a hurdle porting future fox engine games to PC. Looking forward to buying the demo again.

Good news for PC people! And if the game looks as good as it does and runs at 1080P 60FPS on PS4 (which is does, they've said so and Ground Zeroes does), then imagine what the PC version will look like!

Neat!

@patrickklepek A Metal Gear-related event is happen...
Should be Happening

This is awesome news! I don't have to buy a new machine for games yet!

Damn, this was one of the few reasons I was excited to get a PS4. Oh well.

Konami likes money, then? You could hardly tell from their output over the last few years.

Not really a PC gamer myself but i'm glad they're giving people more choices on what to get it on.

Posted by AthleticShark

Not that the PC was ever down, but I feel like it is having a huge resurencge in terms of console games now coming to PC.

I love it, but also makes me regret buying the new consoles big time.

Maybe this will be the excuse to upgrade my 570gtx

Posted by DeiNile

Could not be more excited for this!

Posted by LarryDavis

Yeah alright. I'll still get it on PS4, but that's cool.

METAL GEAR IS EXPANSION ON TO PC SOON!

Edited by Sweetz

Unless all prior Metal Gear games also come to PC, not interested, as that's not a universe I feel one can just "jump into".

I played Meta Gear Solid on a PS1, but missed all the others.

Still, cool that more Japanese companies are making PC ports now. If only Bayonetta 1 & 2 would make it to PC.

OMFG Imagine how amazing it's going to look

Hope the ports are alright. Does Konami have much history with PC ports?

Edited by Hassun

then imagine what the PC version will look like!

I expect it will look mostly the same.

THANK ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THIS WORLD

Edited by chilibean_3

Great! Even less of a reason to buy the new consoles anytime soon. Let's hope they can make a worthwhile PC version though.

Posted by Codicier

Very happy to hear this!

Posted by Tychoid

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

Edited by homelessviking

I'm pretty happy about this. However, other than Bloodborne (and maybe that new Michel Ancel joint) there's not much coming up for consoles I'm amped for. I'm starting to see some dust gather on my PS4 after only a couple months.

Posted by SgtSphynx

I don't normally like reaction gifs, but this fully encapsulates my reaction at hearing this.

Posted by AlisterCat

Even though I have a PS4 and did have an Xbox One I want as many games as possible to be on PC. This is great news.

YEAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

\o/

Posted by cikame

YES!!

As someone who is trying to avoid getting a next gen console, this is perfect, the only game i'm missing now is Killer Instinct, but as a Tekken fan i can do without it.

Posted by Vessel28

Fantastic.

Posted by fisk0

Great news, that cardboard box trailer kinda sold me on the game, but not on picking up one of the new consoles.

Posted by Turambar

Tell me more about Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal.

Posted by nERVEcenter

Holy hot diggety god damn. I might buy this.

Posted by 49th

Still might get it on PS4 even though I have a PC... just feels right on PS4.

OMG on PC it'll be in 2160P! :D

e: no MGS ps classics version? dayum...

Posted by xite

This is actually fairly big news. Cool they're doing this.

Posted by stumpsock

Okay, that's awesome.

Posted by JimmyPancakes

Fantastic. Just waiting on Red Dead Redemption now still then!

Posted by DarkbeatDK

This isn't the first time I've seen people very excited for a PC port and I've been starting to wonder... Does people only have PC these days? What systems do you have?

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Cool. MGS1 on PC I recall being totally fine and maybe there was a 2? Anyway real nice news.

Posted by HellknightLeon

I add nothing to this conversation at all.... but...

"This is cool for people... I don't know, I might get this game on sale." (run away!)

The port for 2 was hot garbage.

I played through that game on PC using just a keyboard. It was so, so bad.

Posted by Larsa

All of a sudden I'm interested in this game again, cool.

Posted by AndrewB

Oooo cool. Would be weird jumping in with only a limited knowledge of MGS1, 2, and Peace Walker, but tactical espionage action that sure looks pretty is hard to pass on.

Well you had to since they didn't let you use the mouse to aim in first person.
