Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is on the way this September. The 1st of September release date was announced today for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the last generation consoles. The PC platform will be getting the game after, on the 15th of September.
The release date actually leaked yesterday but was confirmed by Konami today. Kojima has said that this may be his last Metal Gear Solid game. The game was announced for consoles first, we only found out about the PC version late last year so it isn’t too surprising that the release date for the platform is pushed back a bit.
Aside from the PC and console release dates being announced, a Day One pre-order edition and a collector’s edition were also shown off.
Those who pre-order on console will get a map of the game world, DLC items, an Adam-ska special handgun, a personal ballistic shield, cardboard box, Blue Urban Snake costume and an MGS Online XP boost. The Steam version of the game will include all of this and won’t be limited to those who pre-order.
The collector’s edition costs £99 and contains a bit more, notable inclusions are a half scale replica of Snake’s bionic arm, a behind the scenes documentary blu-ray, a map of the game world and a steelbook case. There is also a long list of DLC items thrown in.

KitGuru Says: Following the excellent port of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, the PC version of MGS V is looking promising. PC gamers will get the game two weeks late on the 15th of September but all day one edition DLC will be bundled in, which is a nice touch. Are any of you guys looking forward to Metal Gear Solid V on Steam?
