Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain System Specs

Metal Gear Solid V DDJust yesterday we learned that the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has had its release date moved up to match that of the consoles.

Now, Konami have released the minimum and required specs for the title, and they are quite reasonable indeed, being similar to the specs for Ground Zeroes which ran beautifully on PC’s.

Here are the specs:

MINIMUM:

  • OS: Windows 7×64, Windows 8×64 (64-bit OS Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4460 (3.40 GHz) or better; AMD FX 6300 or better
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (2GB) or better; AMD R7 260X 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 7×64, Windows 8×64 (64-bit OS Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 (3.60GHz) or better; AMD FX 8350 or better
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760; AMD R9 270 or better (DirectX 11 graphic card required)
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 28 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card (Surround Sound 5.1)

By today’s standards, a recommended GTX 760 is nothing, with many games suggesting the need for the ultra end 980 in order to get the most out of them. However, The Phantom Pain does seems quite the CPU killer requiring a minimum of a i5-4460.

In any case, how are you set for The Phantom Pain? Needing any upgrades, or are you playing on console? Let us know in the comments! As for me, I should be able to run this all nice and smooth with ultra setting *rubs nips*

    easy on the nips lol. I’m really not sure whether to get this on xbox or pc now. I think I’m leaning towards xbox still but I just don’t know :/ Overall they are pretty reasonable specs and so long as you had, for example a quad core i5 running at 3.2ghz (I forget the exact cpu) you should be good I think despite what the min specs say. Its good to hear that Ground Zeros worked well, hopefully with that and the fact they’ve brought the release forward it means we are in for a polished epic game…whatever I decide to buy it on 🙂
