Metal Gear Solid V PC system requirements released

Metal Gear Solid V PC system requirements released

With less than a month to the September 1st release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the PC version’s system requirements have made their way onto the web for Konami’s latest title in the popular action adventure stealth series.

The system requirements were spotted by Destructoid who uncovered them from console PC comparison shots. Most notable of the requirements is that even at bare minimum the game requires a 64-bit OS. The minimum requirements also include at least the Haswell generation i5-4460 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650. That processor and graphics card combo alone will cost over $300.

While the game requirements are demanding – with recommended requirements of an $300 i7 Haswell processor, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 760 – the graphics are impressive and support up to 4K resolution.

However, this is the last title in the Metal Gear series with creator Hideo Kojima’s name attached to it as he parted way with Konami earlier this year.  And it remains to be seen if that will have any impact on the gameplay in this latest edition of the popular series.

Below are the system requirements:

Minimum:

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8 (64-bit OS Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4460 (3.40 GHz) or better; Quad-core or better
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (2GB) or better (DirectX 11 card Required)
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 28 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

Recommended:

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8 (64-bit OS Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 (3.60GHz) or better; Quad-core or better
