Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes: Here Are The World's First PC Screenshots

 

This week, Konami and Kojima Productions took the wraps off the long-awaited PC edition of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and today we can exclusively share with you the first 1920x1080 PC screenshots from the game. Even better, we're able to show you how the PC conversion compares to the original PlayStation 4 release using our interactive screenshot comparison tool.

If you're unfamiliar with Metal Gear, it is a sprawling franchise spanning nearly three decades of games, primarily focussed on sneaky special forces action. There's an unbelievably huge interconnected story that when summarised covers hundreds of pages, it's famous for its hours of in-game, expertly-directed cinematics, and its developer, Hideo Kojima, is regarded as one of gaming's best. For PC gamers who are fans, excitement for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has reached fever-pitch, as it is the first game in the mainline series to launch on PC since Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty in 2003. The even better news is that Ground Zeroes will be followed by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in 2015 (Ground Zeroes is in essence a prologue).

 

So what's new in the PC edition Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes? Here's a handy list:

  • 60 FPS frame rate
  • Additional deferred lights per scene
  • Additional shadows per scene
  • Higher-resolution render targets
  • Higher-resolution shadows
  • Increased detail over distances
  • NVIDIA SLI Multi-GPU support
  • Options to adjust seven graphics features (Effects, Lighting, Screen Filtering, Shadows, Texture Filtering, Textures)
  • Resolution support up to and including 3840x2160 (4K)
  • Screen Space Reflections

Many of those enhancements can be seen in our first interactive comparison, exemplifying the leap in image quality found in the PC edition of Ground Zeroes.

ReviewTechUSA did a nice comparison of the PS4 and PC version, In all honesty there's not much between them apart from the PC having slightly better tessellation and lighting.Quote

Hmmm, they look very similar. I would have expected the PC version to be a lot better. Just a quick question about metal gear - the last Metal Gear that I played was Snake Eater.

Should I replay the games to get a hold of the stories again? How important is Metal Gear 4 storie wize?Quote
