The renowned Metal Gear Solid franchise continues to make headlines, and this time around, it brings excellent news for PC gamers.
After spending some time in the shadows, the franchise is gearing up to unveil new horizons, with much anticipation surrounding the upcoming remake of the third installment. However, before delving into that, there’s exciting information about two games from the franchise already available in the Master Collection Vol.1. It’s worth noting that this announcement isn’t directed at all gamers but has sparked significant interest among certain PC enthusiasts.
A Breath of Fresh Air for Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3
The launch of the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol.1 compilation faced its share of challenges, with technical issues promptly addressed by Konami. Following the deployment of patch 1.4.0 about a month ago on traditional consoles such as PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch, we now have update 1.4.1 landing on PC. This update goes beyond mere adjustments; it introduces a particularly noteworthy port.
Now, PC gamers can enjoy Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 on the Steam Deck, marking a significant milestone in the franchise’s evolution. The inclusion of bonus content in this port enhances the experience for fans. For those keeping track of previous announcements, the availability of MGS 1 on the Steam Deck was already known, as was that of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. Thus, this advancement logically aligns with Konami’s strategy.
It’s important to note that this patch has been exclusively deployed on PC to cater to Steam Deck users who can now enjoy Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 on their console in addition of Metal Gear Solid 5 : The Phantom Pain. Although the details of the changes made aren’t fully disclosed, Konami is expected to provide more information when a similar update is rolled out on other platforms. Despite the initial challenges faced by the compilation, the positive response from the community underscores Konami’s efforts to enhance the gaming experience. While some adjustments are still needed, most feedback suggests overall satisfaction among players.
