On the 1st of September, gamers who have been waiting to play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will finally have their chance. That’s because Konami has moved up the launch of the PC release so that it coincides with the console release. Good news for them. The question is, does your PC have what it takes to run it?
Thanks to Konami community manager Robert Peeler, a post on the Steam forums has revealed what kind of hardware gamers will need to run the game. Let’s start with the minimum: you will need an Intel Core i5-4660 clocked at 3.4GHz or better. A minimum of 4GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 with 2GB of VRAM or higher, along with 28GB of storage.
Now for the recommended specs: Intel Core i7-4790 clocked at 3.6GHz or better. It is also recommended you have 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or better. For both minimum and recommended specs, you should also run Windows 7 64-bit or higher. We haven’t heard anything about Windows 10 support yet. For the most part, the specs are the same as Ground Zeroes from last year, so if you had no problems playing Ground Zeroes, you will likely be fine.
