Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes PC Version Allegedly Releasing in December on Steam
While Kojima Productions is busy at work developing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, the second part of a well-known and critically acclaimed open world action-adventure third-person shooter stealth video game known as Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, PC gamers are eagerly waiting for the developer to announce the release date of the first part for PC, which was confirmed by Hideo Kojima a couple of months ago, and it looks like they don’t need to wait any longer, as the director has allegedly confirmed that Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is coming to PC on December 18.
Hideo Kojima Allegedly Confirms Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes PC Version’s Release Date – Arriving This Year in December
After expressing interest in bringing the game to PC, Hideo Kojima, a renowned video game director, announced a couple of months ago at Gamescom 2014 that Metal Gear Solid 5 will be coming to PC. Both, Ground Zeroes, which is the most critically acclaimed first episode of Metal Gear Solid 5 that has already been released on all major video game consoles, as well as The Phantom Pain, which is the highly anticipated second episode of Metal Gear Solid 5, were confirmed to arrive on Windows PC via Steam. However, no specific release date was given, but now it looks like that PC version of Ground Zeroes will hit shelves later this year in December.
Compiled by NeoGAF, multiple Russian gaming websites are reporting that Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes PC version will be released on Steam later this year on December 18. According to the reporting sources, Hideo Kojima himself confirmed the release date at a currently ongoing Russian game convention called Igromir 2014. However, Konami, publisher of the game, declined to comment on the matter when contacted by Videogamer. Regardless, the validity of the release date is very much believable as Russia has one of the largest PC gaming communities in Europe.
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes was released back in March 2014 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game serves as the prologue to the full-size epilogue, The Phantom Pain, that is set to release on the aforementioned consoles as well as PC in 2015. Ground Zeroes was cherished for its open-world mechanics but its short length earned it some criticism. What improvements will the PC version offer? Guess we will find out this December.
