Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain coming to Steam

During the Gamescom Preview Event, Kojima announced the studio is bringing both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain to Steam.

The reveal was done through a video showing Snake in a Steam themed box. Kojima also said this box will be in the game, and will have its own uses.

While it’s too early for a release date, Kojima did say Ground Zeroes would be released first.

Update: Here are the product pages on Steam:

  • Yes it is. Just another platform I need to get the game for.

  • Cartmangus

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  • BigBoss_88

    Oh yeahhh :), will surely buy again for PC!
    Didn’t show Mother Base or release date noooooo ;( ….

  • PrinceHeir

    I was actually hoping Ground Zeroes story would be incorporated to Phantom Pain.

    So i guess you really need to buy Ground Zeroes to understand the beginning.

    Since this is coming to Steam and i saw a lot of games having multiple audio like The Witcher. I hope this will include the Japanese voice track as well.

    All in all, definitely getting this. Playing this 1920×1280 and 60FPS would be Godly!!!

      That’s from the Ground Zeroes page, TPP obviously doesn’t have all this info yet, but this confirms it. I am so fucking happy about this news.

      • PrinceHeir

        YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • No Place For Hayter

        I’m sorry but ummm full audio Japanese?! Does that mean I can play it with Japanese voices if I buy it on steam? Those who hate Kiefers performance REJOICE!

        • PrinceHeir

          You can probably toggle it unlike the console version which only has English Subs and one audio.

          English console version only has English voices and multiple subs. While Japanese version will have Japanese voices with multiple subs + English Subs.

          Either way PC is definitely the best. More powerful version than PS4, have the option for custom soundtrack as well as having actual option to toggle Dual Audio with multiple subs including Japanese one?

          Now that’s some Godly stuff there!

        • PrinceHeir

          As for Kiefer’s voice i don’t hate it.

          I just love having multiple options. Wish more companies would do these things instead of limiting one option *cough cough Atlus US.

        • now THAT’S a big plus

      • BigBoss_88

        Omg amazing, in japanese oooooh yeah :)!

  • Golgari

    Hideo Kojima owned Gamescom on every front with bomb shells over the internets.

  • No Place For Hayter

    Now it truly will be coming to every platform, though I can’t imagine using anything other than a controller for a MGS game, they are very console friendly and are built around a controller not a keyboard and mouse, so if I get it on steam I’m still going to use a controller, lol.

    • Nekkedsnake

      GZ and TPP will most likely work with the 360 pad. I’ve been playing my Steam games recently and got Portal, which works with the 360 pad nicely. I couldn’t imagine playing any MGS other than MG and MG2SS on Kb.

    • PrinceHeir

      PS4 Dual Shock is actually pretty easy to use and a lot of people have been using it for PC.

      So now you get the best version and best controller all in one go 🙂

    • Venom Snake

      I’ll be using good old classic Mouse & Keyboard, Run with Shift and Hold RCtrl to lay low!

    • I’ll still be getting it on PS4, since PlayStation just seems right for the series.. That said, I will be getting it for steam, when the game gets a PlayStation controller layout. I know the PS controller a hell of a lot better than I know the Xbox controller.

      • Jim

        dude, just use motioninjoy, its a free program that you can download and use a ps3 controller on pc… best of both worlds, graphics of PC and Control ability of PS..:) it has a function to make the pc think the controller is a xbox controller. so ANY game that is set for a xbox controller on pc, you can use it.. made me happy.

        • I already know that. What I mean is an overlay for PlayStation control. So it shows the x, o, triangle and square instead of the ABXY.

  • glad for the ones that wanted the game for pc, i wonder if it would be possible to mod it

  • Venom Snake

    It was unexpected, but it did put a huge smile on my face!

    • The guy who drowned quiet

      congratulations.

      • Venom Snake

        Thank you!

  • Datguy8923

    I can see draw distances, textures, and mods being the definite improvements over the PS4/Bone versions. Other than that I’m still getting PS4 version because my PC is teh sux I need an excuse to get more PS4 games. Would be nice though if I can throw money towards a rig that can this game. MGS V TPP for mods and PS4 for online community. Best of both worlds, no?

    • No Place For Hayter

      Agreed.

      Yeah the PS4 currently has not a lot of games and even less great games but it has a lot of excellent great games coming but they are not out yet and after gamescom the PS4 has some amazing games in the works and considering any mutiplatform game will be superior (god I hate that word) on the PS4, so there are many many reasons to get one.

      Agreed the reason my main focus for MGSV is PS4 is primarily because I can’t afford a god computer that would out do my PS4, also because MGS is a Playstation and home console thing to me.

      After seeing 90% of comments on articles like these being “there goes my reason for a PS4” (aside from these comments showing that they don’t know what games other than MGSV are coming) it was a REALLY bad thing for Sony that this is coming to PC, before it was “Want the best and the classic? get the PS4 version” and now everyone is thinking “the PC version is by far the best” and so Sony has lost a LOT of console sales simply because people believe they can now get it on a superior (again I hate that word) platform, I also prefer to own the game and disc instead of owning the strictly steam copy.

      • Jim

        WELL, you can buy a Physical copy for pc, and just use the cd key to log it into steam… one can upgrade a current pc to be more superior to ps4 by taking the 400$ it would cost to buy a ps4 and buy a decent graphics card for 300$ that will run all games to date at a higher performance than a ps4 could ever hope to achieve… and use the other 100$ to buy the game… and FOX engine is a PC engine, designed on pc and Ported to the PS4 and xbone… giving PC the upper hand. oh, and MODS… and it gives the player the option of ps4,ps3,xbox,xbone controller use or classic K/M…

        • No Place For Hayter

          I forgot about a physical copy because the vibe I got was that it was only releasing on steam, and not any physical copies, I would be happy to know otherwise.

          It is not just a graphics card, but a great quality monitor as well to display the game, I already have a PS4 and a great TV, I mean if I knew about this a couple of years ago I could have spent the money for my TV and PS4 on a computer and monitor, but alas I did not, and since I already had an excellent TV getting a PS4 is cheaper than upgrading my computer and getting a monitor, my main computer I use is my laptop (which I am using right now) so a graphics card is not the only thing I would need to upgrade on my PC to run MGSV to look beautiful. Also I think you are underestimating the PS4 quite a bit, yes PC can run greater quality, but the PS4 is excellent at what it can run, computer technology advances very quickly and while the PS4 is great compared to a great computer, 5 years from now it will be far less great when compared to great computers then.

          Every game engine on the face of this earth are made on PC, this adds no merit to how good it will be on PC, engines are made and developed on PC but you use said engine to develop for specific platforms and thus run great on said platform but run like crap on the rest, but good thing for us the FOX engine is all about being multi-platform so it will run as best it can on all fronts. But all engines are PC, this adds no merit or evidence of how well it will run on any platform, this has been a huge misunderstanding since Kojima productions started showing off the FOX engine, the moment they started talking PC suddenly everyone thought that “OMG a PC engine!?” I would assume what Kojima Productions did, that everyone already had the basic knowledge that game engines are all made and developed on PC, also games are not “ported” from game engines, games are developed through said engine for said consoles, granted the FOX engine makes this really easy but they don’t simply make a PC game at god max settings and hit an export button to each consoles that lowers that god standard by a huge amount (well for PS4 anyway, it would lose a heck of a lot for other consoles) and even if such a thing exists as the export button, when making the game you have to make it for said console to know what you can and can’t do and how to best take advantage of the resources available to you, they are not making a PC game they are making a multiplatform console game, and thus they are developing to get the best from each console not to get the best from PC, I wouldn’t expect to much of an improvement of the PC version over the PS4 version considering the PS4 is the highest quality platform that they are concerned about developing for, they are not worried about the PC version and are not specifically developing for it, and so when they are done they will put the best version they have on PC and probably unlock a bunch of options to make it look even better, but like I said I don’t expect it to be that huge of a difference. I nearly went off topic there, sorry about the game engine/development rant, lol.

          Yeah, Mods, one of the great reasons for a game on PC, agreed, also being able to use a bunch of different controllers or a K/M, the only problem here is that it can be a real pain to get some controllers working on the PC, but having the option is awesome.

    • BigBoss_88

      I love PC gaming, but MGS is one of the games I always like to play on PS. Also I like to own my games as physical copies using disc rather than digitally. But I’ll still probably buy it on PC too lol :3.

    • Namecantbeblank2

      another idiot who thinks just because something is on the PC it will magically look better. How the fuck will the texture be better that has nothing to do with the hardware lmao

      • Datguy8923

        Oh look another douche on the internet. Shocking. Textures/graphics whatever, it’s probably gonna be better but nothing so huge that PC elitist can really gush over.

  • Dizz

    Best news I’ve heard all day. Now I have basically no reason to buy a PS4 (FFXV will probably come to PC too, if it doesn’t, well too bad for their sales charts then).

  • as

    it this for REAL??????TY KOJIMA!!!

  • Venom Snake

    The PC Version of Ground Zeroes better have the PAX 2012 Bloom and Weather Effects!
    http://youtu.be/acq2RRTQrs0

    Don’t strip the PC Version of these features just to be in par with the PS4/Versions, don’t do the Parity BS that Ubisoft has done with the PC Version of Watch Dogs, and that is already doing with The PC Version of The Division, You are better then them, don’t you disappoint us, Hideo!

    • MrVux007

      I dont see PC having much better graphics(if any)…..since PS4 wasnt
      maxed out by the graphics of MGSV(since it is cross gen)…. maybe a
      slightly better drawing distance,shadows and lighting ….. take for
      example Assassins creed IV or any other cross gen game that also has a
      PC release.. but since im not a graphics whore i couldnt care less
      about that ..still the same story,same gameplay mechanics same
      beautiful FOX engine so its still a win-win for both PC and console
      users

      • Venom Snake

        Or much better bring back the features from the Original first 2012 Ground Zeroes PC Gameplay that even the PS4 couldn’t handle, along side the current awesome features and the “Obvious” 4K Textures, Antialiasing Draw distance etc.!

        I think is obvious that one of the reasons MGSV is coming to PC is to show Fox Engine at his MAX, to show how Photorealistic Fox Engine can be!

        • MrVux007

          Um the current graphics of MGSV look waaaay better then the 2012 one….im not sure at what your getting at…..agree on 4K textures but everything else is just pushing it ….also the Silent Hills made by Hideo Kojima was made in FOX engine and it was played on PS4….so yea i think they havent pushed PS4 to the max(not even close) as i said there MIGHT be better graphics in the PC version but will it be significantly MIND BLOWING difference……nope,sorry but i also wish it was different….unless they are planning to delay the game for next year or so and cancelling the PS3/Xbox360 versions release…..THEN i would say that there is a significant chance for graphical improvement

          • Venom Snake

            Yes, like i said is right now the Best looking PS4 Game, but you can’t deny that the Rain Density has been slightly downgraded and the bloom is kinda missing!

            “i think they havent pushed PS4 to the max”

            If not for technical reason aka PS4 could not handle it, then explain why doesn’t even the PS4 version have the Rain Density and the bloom from the 2012 Gameplay!

            Don’t get me wrong, the PS4 version looks amazing for its hardware, but that doesn’t mean that the PC version should be treated like PS4 hardware, the PC Version needs tho look like the PS4 version plus the Extra Details that the PS4 just can’t handle it, i just think that the PC version should not be restricted from the PAX 2012 extra features, just because the PS4 can’t handle them!

          • MrVux007

            What are ya talking about mate?Ps4 has significantly greater graphics and yet has room to spare….the rain and bloom has been dubbed down because it’s a CROSS GEN game,since PS 3/XBOX360 can’t handle any higher graphics….as I said LOOK at the playable teaser for silent hills THATS how FOX engine would look like if MGS V was for next gen only…it’s just funny that u keep saying that PS4 can’t those kind of graphics from 2012 and yet the game looks better in its current state…and yet again look at the latest FOX engine SILENT HILLS running on Ps4

          • Venom Snake

            “the rain and bloom has been dubbed down because it’s a CROSS GEN game”

            That doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be on the PC Version, it won’t be hard to introduce these 2 features on the PC Version, GTA IV Modding show that introducing bloom in to a PC Game is really easy, ans if moders can ad it, Konami should be able to do it even as a Day 1 Update!

            “LOOK at the playable teaser for silent hills THATS how FOX engine would look like if MGS V was for next gen only”

            1.
            Silent Hills & Max Payne 3=Linear=Better Graphics

            MGSV & GTAV=Open world=Normal Graphics

            2. You clearly don’t know how developing a Fox Engine Game works, Hideo talked about the method in an interview with Sony, so look for that and you’ll understand that Fox Engine Games can’t be affected by the other platforms, since all the platforms as ports from the PC Version, therefore The Games are adjusted [aka downgraded] for each platform individually without affecting the performance of the others!

          • MrVux007

            So lets completely ignore games like the Witcher, division etc …. Just beacouse it’s open world game that doesn’t mean it can’t have proper graphics…since I don’t know will modding be available on MGS V I will not comment that…and yes FOX engines can be affected by other platforms mate (the basis of all engines like that) …they can’t just overdue programming for inferior versions (ps3/XBOX360) so that the superior ones (ps4/xboxone/pc)can have better graphics…even if they did the development seperately first the last gen realease then the current gen realease there would not be REAL noticeable changes but that ofcourse means adding more time for the realese….meaning of cross gen is creating as similar products as possible so that the both versions can have the same experiance….adding things like better graphics would mean ‘re-doing development in other words creating a whole new game ….witch I wouldn’t mind just as long as they don’t delay the development and polishing of the consoles

          • Venom Snake

            If you don’t know how Fox Engine works, if you haven’t at least read Hideo Interview with Sony about Fox Engine, then please, keep your opinions on Fox Engine for yourself!

          • MrVux007

            Ok first of all i apologies for making this discussion i know i said im not a graphic whore but by making these reply’s i ended up being one ….and probably in your eyes i ended up being ignorant kid who doesn’t know what he is talking about ….i asure you i did watched numerous presentations and read many interviews about the FOX engine …but no where did i find Kojimas statement that “Fox Engine Games can’t be affected by the other platforms, since all the platforms as ports from the PC Version”…..and this became my obsession in past few hours i started digging and digging for that statement just make sure in the end that im either right or wrong ….and in the end i never found that statement : / (so if you could find me that statement i would be really grateful,and probably feel like an ass…..but youl have my deepest apologies)

            now to further back up my point pls take a look at these two separate interviews witch proves that FOX engine is indeed affected by the cross-gen….pls take this as a peacefull debate from a fellow MGS fan,im not a console fanboy nor do i hate PC in general…im both glad and sad that it got released for PC but still left my emotions aside when making my statement

          • Venom Snake

            1. “Fox Engine Games can’t be affected by the other platforms, since all the platforms as ports from the PC Version” I never said that this is an exact quote, is just what i conclude from all the interviews!

            2. Thanks you, thank you for stopping for once combating FACTS with opinions, thank you for using FACTS to prove me wrong, and yes, i apologize, i was wrong!

          • MrVux007

            It Takes A Big Man To Admit When He’s Made A Mistake………. It Takes An Even Bigger Man To Apologize ..have good one mate 🙂

          • Venom Snake

            You to buddy!

          • Jim

            if you look at the bottom of that page he posted, it says that next-gen will provide noticable improvements, resolution and lighting… small, but significant. I’m just hoping that bloom distance is better on pc than console. i was disapointed in how close or having to use scope to see enemies on the other side of the map, they just appear out of nowhere.. 🙁

        • MrVux007

          heres also the comparison(note that 2013 one still had the removed blue filter) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqbNk5-gzXU&list=PLlhtYzUjr0NXDV4vifUhX06VmzuetiBCR&index=105

          • Venom Snake

            Yes, like i said all, the Necessary features improved, but they came with a price, and that was removing 2 other unnecessary features for a Console Game, but totally necessary for any PC Game in 2014!

            Almost forgot, the Skin Rendering was better on the 2012, which further proves that the 2012 one was early PC Development!

  • Guest

    I dont see PC having much better graphics(if any)…..since PS4 wasnt
    maxed out by the graphics of MGSV(since it is cross gen)…. maybe a
    slightly better drawing distance,shadows and lighting ….. take for
    example Assassins creed IV or any other cross gen game that also has a
    PC release….. but since im not a graphics whore i couldnt care less
    about that …..still the same story,same gameplay mechanics same
    beautiful FOX engine so its still a win-win for both PC and console
    users ^^
