Konami has confirmed performance and resolution details for each game included in Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol.1, which will be available for PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch. The long-awaited resurrection of the Metal Gear Solid franchise by Konami has arrived in the form of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection volume 1. This collection covers the three main games in the series, which are Metal Gear Solid, MGS 2: Sons of Liberty and MGS 3: Snake Eater, as well as the first two Metal Gear titles, for both MSX and NES.
The first MGS, the classic PS1 title, includes the special missions, while Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater are remasters previously released by Konami for PS3 and Xbox 360 in a double pack. 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, with only 2.4 GB included, requiring an additional 21.1 GB to be downloaded from the eShop.
In addition to the games, Konami has added a variety of extras, such as graphic novels, art galleries and unpublished details, in a compilation that will undoubtedly be of interest to fans of the series. So current players will have the opportunity to enjoy the first three Metal Gear Solid, along with the classic Metal Gear titles, in optimal conditions.
RESOLUTION AND FPS
Konami has shared the resolution and performance data for each game on various platforms, such as PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. It is important to mention that none of the three games run at 4K, even on next-generation 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 will run at 30 FPS on Nintendo Switch.
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 starting October 24 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. It will not be for Xbox One.
