Konami has confirmed performance and resolution details for every game in Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol.1, which will be available for PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch. The long-awaited resurrection of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid franchise has arrived in the form of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Volume 1. This collection includes the three main games in the series, namely Metal Gear Solid, MGS 2: Sons of Liberty and MGS 3: Snake Eater, as well as the first two Metal Gear titles for MSX and NES.
The first MGS, the classic PS1 title, includes the special missions, while Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater are remasters that Konami previously released in a double pack for PS3 and Xbox 360. However, there are some considerations to take into account, especially for Nintendo Switch players, as the cartridge for this platform does not contain the entire collection and only comes in at 2.4GB, requiring an additional 21.1GB to be downloaded from the eShop.
In addition to the games, Konami has included a number of extras such as graphic novels, art galleries and unpublished details in a compilation that will undoubtedly be of interest to fans of the series. This means current players have the opportunity to enjoy the first three Metal Gear Solid as well as the classic Metal Gear titles under optimal conditions.
RESOLUTION AND FPS
Konami has shared the resolution and performance data for each game across various platforms such as PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. It’s important to note that none of the three games run in 4K, even on next-gen consoles like PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Additionally, the first MGS game is capped at 30 FPS on all platforms. Another point is that all games on Nintendo Switch run at 30 FPS.
Konami also notes that frame rates may vary at times and that all three games have been remastered for current systems.
Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection will be available October 24th for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. It won’t be for Xbox One.
