mgs-v-ground-zeros-logoMetal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is taking its sweet ass time sneaking on over to the PC that’s for sure, but at least PC gamers with a decent rig will be able to take advantage of a handful of visual enhancements.

Konami earlier today confirmed that Ground Zeroes will hit Steam on December 18th, 2014 and will support 4K resolutions in addition to more light sources, on-screen models and improved shadow rendering. So if you’ve been holding out for the absolute best looking version of MGS and The Phantom Pain prequel, the PC seems to be the way to go.

Read on for the details from Konami.

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced today that it will release the PC version of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES via Steam on December 18th, 2014. The Company also confirmed that it will be 4K compatible and will feature an increase in the number of simultaneous light sources, the number of models that can be displayed on-screen, and increased shadow resolution.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES takes place in 1975 and sets in motion a series of events that culminate in the stunning plotlines of METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. GROUND ZEROES centers on Big Boss – legendary hero and mercenary – as he infiltrates a sprawling secret prison base called ‘Camp Omega’ in Cuba on a rescue mission. He soon finds himself alone behind enemy lines with a truly non-linear mission that showcases key advances to the series made possible by its use of Kojima Productions’ FOX Engine.

GROUND ZEROES is centered on a large open environment, with missions where time of day and weather have a dynamic effect on the game and its content. The game offers a total freedom of movement within its missions, with users choosing how they engage guards, the route they pick, and who they rescue. As such, it offers incredible replay value and encourages the player to revisit its content in order to find more of its many secrets. Furthermore, the game features an online global ranking system where players can compete in unique in-game and mission challenges and achievements to see how they compare against others around the world.
