Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain finally gets its PS4 Pro update

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain finally gets its PS4 Pro update

It’s been a long time coming for fans of the series, but Konami is finally rolling out a PS4 Pro update for one of the generation’s most acclaimed games.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will receive a free patch on October 31, the official MGS Twitter announced today.

We don’t know what to expect of the update — including how it will actually improve the game’s visuals and performance — but we probably should expect some hefty upgrades to bring it up to the standards of expectations across the PS4 Pro install base.

The release of the patch comes as the game joins the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Library for October, meaning PlayStation Plus members can get the game for free and check out the update until November 7.

While it’s taken a while for the game to get its PS4 Pro update, one would think that Xbox One X owners will get a similar update come the console’s launch next month.
