‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ PC Requirements Revealed

Now that the PC version of The Phantom Pain is launching ahead of its original date, it’s time to see what hardware is necessary to run Kojima’s magnum opus.

Originally scheduled for a Sept. 15 release, Konami recently announced that the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release alongside its console counterparts on Sept. 1. Those who pre-order through Steam will not only receive the title, but two DLC extras and a free copy of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

The official Steam store page has yet to be updated, however Konami’s Online Community Manager Robert Peeler took to the Steam Community page to post the minimum and recommended hardware requirements necessary to run The Phantom Pain. It’s worth noting that a 64-bit OS and the equivalent of an Intel Core i5 CPU are required for installation:

Minimum:

  • OS: Windows 7×64, Windows 8×64 (64-bit OS Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4460 (3.40 GHz) or better; Quad-core or better

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release for PC, Xbox One, PS4, 360 and PS3 on 9/1.
