Aha, this is something we’d like to see a lot more of! After the insanely good PC performance of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, which could run on an overclocked calculator, Konami and Kojima Productions have put out an open call for feature requests for MGS 5: The Phantom Pain from the PC gaming community.

Kojima Productions community manager Robert Peeler put out the call, asking for all the graphic features, options and settings for the open-world adventure, with the clear intent of providing a hopefully solid PC port.

In a little over two months time we’ll have a PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, something we’ve been working on, but while we’ve been doing our best, and reading what feedback you’ve given thus far…let’s do our best to funnel it all into this thread,” Peeler wrote over on the game’s Steam discussion.

Tell us please, so that we can convey it to the development team hard at work on the PC version, what FEATURES and OPTIONS you want for the PC version of MGSV:TPP. No guarantees they'll all make it in, but this game is made for you, the fans of Metal Gear, who want an amazing experience on your home computer--so help us get you there.

So far there’s been an overwhelming response, with more than 700 comments. PC gamers are making sure they get their voices heard loud and clear, asking for wide-ranging options such a FOV settings, uncapped FPS, Depth of Field, Screen Filtering, ultra-widescreen support, and even VR. You name it, the PC community has asked for it.

Hopefully Kojima Productions manages to take as much of it on board as possible and deliver a great PC port, something which can’t be said of a few recent AAA releases - naming no names. Outwardly it looks great, but we’ll have to get our hands on the game in September to see where this feedback has really been applied. I know the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain arriving a fortnight after the console is an annoyance, but it does demonstrate the intention of ensuring a working title on PC at launch, and making it the best version out there.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom pain is out on September 1st for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, before arriving on Windows PC on September 15th.

I believe its when the port the **** straight from a different machine that the game originally runs on. It would be like taking the last of us from PS3 and porting it to PC straight from there. like GTA 4 was ported and terribly done making the game hard to run at times.

Same optimization level as GTA V, no 30 FPS cap, No Denuvo DRM, No Nvidia Gameworks, Various Graphics Settings.

I love ground zeroes my only complaints is the post processing frame rate hit, fov, and capped 60fps, I can run this game way higher as right now with all maxed I am staying at the 60fps all the time, post processing causes frame drops to 50s, but yah I just want the most uncapped fps

Unfortunately the game was optimized more for Nvidia. Even with my old overclocked HD 7990, I could barely max out the game at 1440p.

I hope they benefit from advantages of windows 10 and DirectX12.

1st - Best optimization as possible
2nd - DRM free (just look at witcher 3)
3rd - No insane requirements for minimum (680 3gb vram, 8gb ram or something like that)
4th - Story and gameplay should be a priority
5th - Quality expansion packs not shallow DLCs, free maybe (just look at witcher 3)


...apart from Ground Zero and Revengeance i did not play MGS games for a long time since PSOne and PS2 era, its great that MGS is again on PC.

What most PC gamers really want from the developers is a good optimisation. Apart from that, they might want some additional options which help players find their perfect spot between FPS and quality.

Why? To be correct they should release it with a remastered version of snake eater, since the story continues from that game with snake, not solid snake from mgs4.

From a story aspect, you're right. It should be a MGS3, Peace Walker, MGS5 bundle. I think Rebdy's comment has to do with how there is currently no way for PC players to play MGS4.

Yep that's what I meant, I played MGS4 on PS3 but most of my friends skipped the 7th generation consoles and haven't played Guns Of The Patriots

Actually it's a direct sequel for MGS Peace Walker on psp. Even the gameplay brought many elements from Peace Walker.

A perfect optimisation needed for pc do not release too many patches and do not delay for polishing the game and no more low fps. Is there any gameplay included on oceans or under water would be much appreciated
