In somewhat unexpected news it looks like Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain (which still sounds a bit like a worrying euphemism for irritable bowel syndrome) is coming to Steam.
The news was leaked accidentally by Konami just before yesterday's big MGS5 live-stream. That's the first time in the franchise that a Metal Gear Solid game will launch simultaneously on PC and consoles.
the big reveal, hidden on the Konamu . While Metal Gear Solid has never made it to the PC at launch, tie-ins and PC ports have popped up in the past. Sword-fighting spinoff Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance launched on Steam this year, and the first and second entries in the franchise were ported across some time after their console debuts - albeit with rather mixed results.
No word on a possible release date yet, but we'll get back to you when Konami say more. Series creator Hideo Kojima confirmed the rumours were true during the company's live , and revealed that Steam customers will get a unique cardboard box to hide in. Best pre-order content ever.
