The release date of the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been brought forward to release alongside the console versions, and will now launch on the 1st of September. Konami has also revealed the game's minimum and recommended specs, as well as new screenshots.

The PC version will feature a few upgrades and additions over the consoles versions, such as support for 4K resolutions and custom MP3 soundtracks. Steam customers will receive some goodies when purchasing the game, including a documentary on the making of the game, some DLC content and extra Mother Base Staff. In addition, those that pre-order the game will be given a free copy of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

However, despite the game being brought forward on PC, the online portion of the game, Metal Gear Online, has been delayed on all platforms. Metal Gear Online will be available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on the 6th of October, while PC players will have to wait until January 2016 to access the Phantom Pain's online component.

"We initially did not think it would be possible to get such an epic game out onto PC in time for launch alongside its console counterparts, but all involved have worked diligently to meet the demands of our PC consumers," said Konami. "Now PC users will be able to explore the vibrant and beautifully-realised locations and set-pieces that elevate Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain beyond all other action titles."
