During Konami's Hideo Kojima power hour this morning, or more officially the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gamescom press conference, the king of Metal Gear announced something steamy. With a short video showing Snake put on a box painted with the Steam logo and having a valve stuck out the back, Kojima confirmed that both Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes are coming to PC via Steam.
Hideo Kojima was unwilling to reveal a release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but he did say that fans can expect Ground Zeroes to arrive on the platform before its larger big brother. While he didn't say it directly, I'm hoping that he's implying that the PC release of The Phantom Pain will be in parity with the console versions' release.
Oh man, I just realized what the implications of this announcement are. If the Fox Engine makes it simpler to port Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to PC, then does that mean that the newlly announced Silent Hills will also be coming to PC? For goodness sake, what is up with Gamescom and these announcements this year.
Expect today's latest Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain demo, shown live to a Gamescom crowd, to be available on Youtube with the next few weeks. It's a second playthrough of the first mission, though its been iterated on by the game's AI to be more challenging. Plus, new box features!
