MGS V's PC Version Launching Early, Metal Gear Online Hits Consoles In October

Konami originally revealed that Metal Gear Solid fans planning to play on PC would have to wait until September 15 to play the open-world stealth game – 15 days after the console release. An announcement today reveals that the PC version has been moved up to coincide with the PlayStation and Xbox releases, along with new details about the release of Metal Gear Online.

Konami Digital Entertainment, offered a statement saying it didn't think getting the large-scale game ready for PC in time would be possible. PC users playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain with beefy enough monitors will also be able to take advantage of the sharp 4k display mode come September 1.

PC and console fans will be able to dive into The Phantom Pain come September 1, but everyone will have to wait a bit longer to play Metal Gear Online. The team-based, competitive multiplayer mode won't be available on consoles until October 6. PC players have to wait until next January to play MG Online, however.

We may have to wait for the Metal Gear Online mode to hit, but that doesn't mean MGS V isn't launching without any online functionality. Player's unique Forward Operating Bases will be online at launch, which you can learn more about here
